In a decision, the Special Civil Court of the District of Cruzeiro do Sul sentenced a pet Shop to pay R$10,000 for moral damages to the owner whose dog died after a water tank fell on the animal.

According to the records, on May 18, 2023, the animal’s owner contacted the commercial establishment, as her dog had a tick infestation and needed a bath with medication. In the conversation, Whatsappthe owner was informed that the animal would only be delivered the next day, so it needed to remain there to be shaved and bathed again.

The next morning, when she contacted the veterinary clinic, she discovered that her dog had been crushed to death after a water tank collapsed. At that moment, he was informed that the animals with ticks were placed outside, so as not to infest the environment.

Faced with the fatal accident, the dog’s owner requested the amount of R$10,000 in court for moral damages. In the process, she highlighted the impact on her psycho-emotional state, as she had lived with the animal for more than eight years.

Given the documentary evidence and the defendant choosing not to appear in court, judge Rosilene de Santana accepted the guardian’s requests and sentenced the pet Shop to compensate her with the amount requested.

In the sentence, the judge understood that “the [clínica veterinária] defendant did not adopt the necessary precautions to maintain the physical integrity of the animal, due to the lack of adequate structure for the activity he carried out, allowing the dog to die while he was under his care”.
