Thanks Renee and everyone else. I really appreciate the support and advice. I feel like a failure right now. I'm such a big believer in neutering and I haven't been able to do it until Jan. 26. I'll let you know what happens

We all understand, lets just hope that the other owner will. Its a tough situation, my thoughts and prayers will be with you and Mikey.
Was the other dog outside, unatended/unleashed as well? In that case both parties would be responsible. I know you feel horrible and think you should've gotten him nutered, but remember that the other dogs should have been too! In my opinion this can not be blamed entirely on you and Mikey; it takes two to fight! Hopefully being a mix will come to Mikey's advantage now.
I don't think you should pay or offer to pay anything until you come to a mutual (written) agreement with the other owner. And even then, don't pay until you talk to the other vet and make sure that the bill is right, because I've known some owners to exagerate a bit on that. I could be wrong; just my thoughts. Good Luck, and keep us posted!

Thanks! Brattina I have thought it through and I agree with you completely. I will definitely make sure to get everything in writing to cover all my bases.

Thanks everyone.

I think I mentioned it but Mikey is getting neutered on Jan. 26 and I'm so thrilled about that. I think a lot of his "problems" are because of that. Maybe he'll get fat and lazy! Ha ha ha. Joking.

You really need to pay their bill. I don't know what the insurance rules are where you live, but in my area if you have a dog that might be agressive on your property they will not insure you. If ,because your landlord has such a dog on her property, she loses her home insurance, you could be in deep do-do. I'd do everything I could at this point to avoid a lawsuit. So sorry this happened, I know you're upset.

Thanks, bubbatd. I'm probably going to pay half. It is just as much her fault as mine as mentioned above.

That's great if she agrees with you and doesn't bring in her own doctor's fee. Fill that wine glass and relax !!

Doesn't matter if she agrees with me. We both had unneutered dogs, running loose on their own property and we both knew that the dogs didn't get along. Equal responsibility. People don't sue as much in Canada as they do in the states although they are starting too. And we all have health care.

But thanks those are good points.

I will have a beer and go to the movies tonight I think but I'm still working.

I can fully understand what you are feeling. Hopefully her dog will make a complete recovery & she'll be willing to come to a mutually agreeable settlement with you. Since it is her property I personally think the vet bill should be paid by you even tho her dog was also out there alone. I also want to mention that altho Mikey is being neutered this may not solve the problem and even if he seems better with other dogs afterwards I definitely wouldn't trust him with her dog again - they have had one fight and both of them will remember it in my opinion.

We'll keep all our fingers, toes & paws in our house crossed, sending good vibes your way for this to work out well for all of you.

Good point. Double-edged as well. The landlord's dog is also aggressive. The landlord may be "hoist on her own petard" by reporting this and may need to do some backpedalling to keep it from making its way to insurance . . .
