Suspension and fine ordered for veterinarian in New York

The New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC) recently suspended a veterinarian and ordered him to settle a fine due to confirmed suspicions that he had certified horses that did not undergo the required examination, an article of BloodHorse reported on December 28.

Reports said the NYSGC, on December 26, announced the 20-day suspension of doctor Camilo and was also ordered him to pay a $1,500 fine after an October incident where he was suspected of giving health certificates to three horses that he had not actually tested. The suspension initially ordered to Dr. Sierra was 30 days and was reduced when he agreed to settle the fine imposed on him. Dr. Sierra is expected to go back to his work on January 15, the date his suspension is expected to end. New York documents showed that Sierra first obtained his veterinarian license in 1992.

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In the 1990s, his license was revoked after he went to prison for drugs.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.
