A second dog owner has filed a $1 million lawsuit against the Fort Worth vet accused of keeping pets alive for medical experiments after their owners signed euthanasia forms. The dog, a chihuahua named Hercules, was found at the clinic at the time of the police raid, months after the owner had requested euthanasia to end the dog’s suffering. After the raid, two other vets recommended euthanasia for Hercules and the owners consented. (Thanks Arlene for the link.)
