Arkansas Court Says Judge Correctly Ruled in Case over Dog

SEPTEMBER 14, 2006 - Posted at 7:53 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The state Appeals Court says a judge correctly ruled in favor of a veterinary clinic that had been accused by a pet owner of mistreating his dog, Mr. T, causing the paralysis and death of the 16-year-old canine.

The majority said Pulaski County Circuit Judge Barry Sims was correct in granting the defendants' request for a favorable ruling in the case brought by B.J. McAdams against Vets and Pets, its owners, and employees.

McAdams alleged he left his dog for a few hours at the clinic for a routine steroid shot February 14, 2000, and someone physically restrained Mr. T, causing a break or fracture to the dog's spine.
