Veterinarian in New Mexico temporarily suspended for failure to treat

A veterinarian in Taos, New Mexico was recently suspended for failing to provide proper treatment to a wounded dog, the Albuquerque Journal stated on October 22.

Dr. Eugene Aversa allegedly failed to promptly change an injured dog’s bandage on multiple occasions, up until it began to produce a bad odor. Several other complaints had also been filed against Aversa, including maltreatment allegations against several cats and dogs. Aside from the 30-day license suspension ordered against Aversa by the state’s board of Veterinary Medicine, he was also ordered to a pay fine of $5,000 and perform 64 hours of supervised work together with veterinarian in New Mexico, emulating proper treatment procedures.
