Pet owners are not likely to get much compensation if they individually sue pet food-maker Menu Foods over the death of a dog or cat, although they might fare better if they joined forces in a class action suit, legal experts say. I would say you would get more suing individually, which you do if they allow it. Once there is a class action lawsuit most want you to file your claim under it.
Most states consider animals personal property rather then a family member. There are no damages no matter how emotional you are over your pet. Just the value on property is all you get.
