A distraught dog owner claims she was extorted by her vet when she brought in her dog, Mojo, for treatment after he was dragged behind a car and injured. The vet told her that to bring Mojo back to health, he would need emergency surgery that would cost her a pretty penny ... or, more like $10K. 

To make matters worse, the woman says she was told that if she didn't pay up and agree to surgery, they would have animal cruelty charges filed against her. 

She ended up taking the dog home and opting out of treatment ... and as it turns out, Mojo is still very much alive and well, suggesting that the woman's claims of embellished and unfounded financial demands could be founded.
