Dog food manufacturers have acknowledged the priceless bonding between you and your pet. In their advertisements they confirm your pet is not a property like your TV or your car. No, you have a real relationship with your furry pal and it deserves the healthiest dog food. Then when your dog dies after eating it, it suddenly returns to being just property and you get the animal’s market value plus the veterinary bills recovered. Is that fair?
Animal rights lawyers and pet owners now argue these laws are outdated and fail to consider the position of pets being companion animals in today’s society. The growing legal recognition of pet’s value is in the spotlight because of the dog food recall affecting over 100 brands in the USA. Animal rights advocates aim to upgrade the legal status of pets to somewhere between property and humans.
