Texas veterinarian may have license revoked

A veterinarian in Terrell, just east of Dallas, is at risk of having his license revoked for a second time.

Complaints about the veterinarian rose when several pets died at his clinic and one dog went missing, which has still never been located. The vet has blamed his staff for the increasing problems. Due to the amount of complaints leveled against the veterinarian, the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners temporarily suspended his license.

In the 1990s, his license was revoked after he went to prison for drugs. Five years later his license was reinstated. He was recently arrested twice by state troopers for drug possession. Along with drug violations, he faces a total of nine violations including poor record keeping.

Veterinarian sentenced to probation for drug use

A veterinarian has been given two years probation after it was discovered she used the clinic’s drugs for her own personal use. According to the state Department of Health, the woman self-administered anesthesia at least five times and took Xanax while at work.

In August, the Veterinary Board of Governors suspended her license for her drug abuse. The board has agreed to let her practice again after she undergoes medical treatment and evaluation. She will also have to be evaluated for mental health issues, substance abuse, and dependency.

While on probation, the woman will be inspected three times a year to ensure the clinic’s controlled substances are being used properly.
