NYC Veterinary Specialists / Malpractice

I took my dog here after he hit his head rather hard. After spending countless hours, X-rays etc. I was informed by Lauren Stoltze (vet) that it was not an issue to take him home, she was not concerned at all and he should be fine.

4 hours later my dog and best friend died.

I proceeded to contact an attorney only for NYC Veterinary Specialists to send an email on behalf of Ms. Lauren Stoltze outlining that she highly recommended that he spent the night in ICU.

This was not the case. She assured us that there was no issue and was "very confident" that there will be no issue. This clearly was not the case and my family is devastated.

This is the only experience I have had with this vet and unfortunately the only one I know of open 24 hours in NYC. I highly suggest asking or demanding another specialist who will be honest with you.

    I know the owners of this little dog. They loved him so much. Unfortunately it was late, and they had to go to this vet without first reading all the complaints. Then Dr Stoltze had the audacity to lie to them the next day. What kind of a chop shop is this? Why isn't the Veterinary Board investigating them?

    It is your legal right to obtain copies of all veterinary medical records including tests, labs, xrays, mri, ultrasound, etc. Obtain them immediately, for they are only required to keep for a certain time which varies on which State the veterinarians practice. You have a right to review original medical files as well to compare. Preserve all records and the necropsy report if one was done.
