An animal center in Cutten, California was temporarily shut down after its veterinarian was suspended due to several violations, including charges of fraud, Willits News reported on July 22.
In a decision by the Veterinary Medical Board, Doctor Joseph Humble’s license was suspended for 15 days. The board accused Humble of work-related fraud, incompetence, and negligence committed against at least two dog patients that died under his supervision. Aside from the suspension, Humble was also required to settle in the amount of $22,000 and was put on probation for four years. Any violations of the terms of his probation may lead to the revocation of Humble’s license.
