This week my vet was the subj. of a TV investigation. She has been accused of mistreating animals both physically and medically. The TV investigation focused on why vets can't lose their license by the state,Ohio. I have used her for two yrs. She was the vet for the local animal shelter and since my babies were both shelter cats I continued to use her. She did both their spays, and treatment when they fell victim to the food problem last year. Last Fall the shelter changed vets and warned everyone of the existence of panleukopena in the vets office. This is about the time of the first mistreatment allegation. I wonder if the shelter was not being truthful about why they were changing vets. I am really conflicted. My cats have never been mistreated, but if the allegations are true of course I don't want to take any chances. She had been fined in both cases which implies guilt. One of the allegations was that she used human antibotics for cats, specifially amoxicillin. Does anyone know if that can be used for animals? I guess in the long run I'll need to change vets. I can't put my kitties in danger and there are other good vets in the area. Any input would be appreciated.
