Cat Chat 31

Cat Chat 31



Justine Mikolaitis talks with Carole Baskin about about what “Animal Law” means to her.  We will discuss the very first case that she filed, currently pending in Miami-Dade Circuit Court which is a “gross negligence” case, seeking non-economic damages as a result of the loss of a companion canine (i.e., dog).

We will discuss “why “gross negligence,” as opposed to “veterinary negligence”, what non economic damages are and the topic of property law and dogs.  

We will also touch on “service animals” and “emotional support animals” and the difference between a “service animal” and “emotional support animal” and how they are treated under the law.

There is a lot to cover, but we also hope to discuss “pet trusts” so this is an episode of Cat Chat that you won’t want to miss.
