The 29-year-old actress was left devastated after the sudden demise of her beloved pooch and she has reportedly hired a legal team to investigate what happened the dog, TMZ reports.

According to the outlet, Nala had a "check-up with her long-term vet prior to the trip in NY, and was deemed fit and healthy".

Vet records show that the dog had "fluid in her lungs, a crazy heart rate and neurological issues before passing".

Nicola's family had used the dog grooming company before with no issues.

Nicola previously took to Instagram to share her heartbreak, writing: "This has been the hardest month of my life. i can’t even find the words to describe my heartbreak on so many levels. nala was perfectly healthy when she went to the groomers yesterday but came out hyperventilating and couldn’t catch her breath. we rushed her to the vet and she passed hours later. i’m sharing this in hopes that it might prevent this from happening to other dogs. her life was taken away from her way too soon. she was my beautiful queen and stayed by my side for 9 years through everything. please be careful who you send your dogs to because you don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. 1 day without nala on earth feels like an eternity. i wish i could have her back in my arms. i pray she’s with my naunni. i hope i see them soon."
