How Much is a Pet’s Life Worth?

Record #:
A case involving a mistake by a veterinary clinic causing a dog’s death may have legal implications. The Industrial Commission in Durham will decide on the case later this fall and it could set a precedent for animal law in the state. The cost of how much a pet’s life is worth will be decided by the commission and will likely be the new standard for a pet's value in the state of North Carolina.
