Default Emergency surgery after boarding

My dog had emergency surgery to remove plastic from his stomach after
being boarded. We did our homework before using this place. Been
using them for years. Great experiences. Honestly believe it could be
a one-time stupid mistake... but owner isn't returning my calls. This
is in Washington state. I'm not aware of any licensing agencies to
whom I can complain. (Of course there's always BB and/or the attorney
general's office.)

Your opinions?

Thanks!

talk to your vet, he may have some info or pull with them
write them a letter outlining your displeasure, include a COPY of your vet
bill, state "we have always had such a pleasant/cordial" relationship blah
blah blha, so I was very surprised when Fluffy was sick as a dog upon
returning from your usually well-run kennel. I am enclosing the bill for
hs surgery, etc., and expect you/your insurance to pay it w/in 14 business
days.

If no $, go to small claims court.

In most states, it's the Department of Agriculture which licenses
commercial boarding kennels, vet clinics (not the vets), and sometimes
grooming shops.

But the idea about the letter with the copy of the vet bill is a VERY
good one.
