My diabetic dog died after dental surgery. She was left alone at the facility after it closed for 12 hours with no monitoring of her vials

More details to this question:
My diabetic dog had dental surgery, 23 teeth were removed. When the vets office closed at 7 p.m. She was left alone all night with no monitoring of her vitals and no one with her for 12 hours. When they returned at 8a.m. They found her blood sugar had plummeted, they tried to get her blood sugar up all morning. I went there to see her, she was sick and suffering, the vet asked me how I felt seeing her like that? After awhile I was asked to leave. I called back an hour later and was told I would have to transport her to a critical care facility as they did not have the equipment to measure her look oxegen. Upon arrival at the critical care facility I had to give them$2,000 for them to treat her. She was there 6 hours when I received a call that I should come to the facility as she was to weak to fight anymore and had to be humanely euthanized, she had developed a blood clot in her lung probably from the anesthesia.

Can service animals accompany their owners into places where pets aren't traditionally welcome? What happens to the beloved family pet when a couple gets divorced?
