An Italian woman has just won a revolutionary court case after stating that she wanted to be given two days of family sick pay while she cared for her dog after surgery.

According to The Guardian, the Italian woman, of Rome, won her case in part because of assistance from the Italian Anti-Vivisection League (LAV), which is a substantial animal rights group in Europe.

The dog had surgery in February to remove a tumour from her breast, and separate treatment in May for laryngeal paralysis.

"It is a significant step forward to recognised that animals that are not kept for financial gain or their working ability are effectively members of the family".

The woman's lawyer argued that Italy's animal protection laws were strict enough to allow her the compensation.

LAV president Gianluca Felicetti says in a statement that anyone who obtains a veterinarian's certificate should enjoy the same benefit, citing Cucciola's case as precedent.
