Our cat, Mr. Fluffy, was a victim of Veterinary Malpractice. We lost Fluffy on Dec. 31, 1997. Since then we have tried to learn as much as we can about Veterinary Malpractice, to help us to seek justice for Fluffy's tragic loss. We are hoping that by writing a page that deals with this subject, that we will be able to help others that will unfortunately have to be in this position too someday.
