Can you take the people who sold you the bird to small claims court for vet fees?
Hi I'm just looking for some advice. I purchased a young bird a few days ago with a dodgy leg. I was aware of the dodgy leg but took him anyway because I didn't want him to suffer and I knew he wasn't going to get vet care as they had left him like this for 7days+ I got him into my vet the same day and he has a severe break in his femure/hip and is severely underweight for his age. They want to euthanise him. We have him seeing a specialist next week as I have researched and know there is a chance he cam have a operation if he gains weight but could be a minimum of £1000 We have reported this to RSPCA but my question is can we take the people to small claims court for them to pay some of the fees or because I willingly took him to get him help and out of a crummy situation am I fully responsible? (They don't care one bit all I got was a "sorry to hear that)
