Sorry I have been gone so long. I have been very busy working on Simba's lawsuit against this evil man who lies.
We are suing the vet board who did nothing to this man even though he clearly broke the law in my state. We have a court date in August.
We also have filed a lawsuit against the vet himself.

Thank you chico and 14.

Aug 18 administrative court decides if my vet board appeal will be heard or not. I *think* I am the first person to appeal a vet board decision in my state. Lawyer can't find any other cases.
I have been home with my girl for 2 week as I recovery from surgery. I LOVES my kitteh!

He is a board certified dental/oral surgeon BUT I found out he got it through an alternate pathway so he never did a residency in dentisry My new vet encouraged me to report him to the licensing board for misrepresentation and doing too much surgery all at once and for not letting me visit her in 2 weeks. I am so angry.

Then I found out my cat has BEGINNING signs of renal disease. Guess what: no sign sign of this pre-surgery but now showing signs post-surgery. I feel like I am going to throw up. I love my kitty with all my heart. I thought I was helping her and it turned out I think I hurt her!
They are now going to put her on Hill's k.d. thru the feeding tube. the vet said to give her whatever she will eat by mouth for now. once the feeding tube is out then we have to work on transitioning her to a low protein diet. I am SO ANGRY at the surgeon of lying, misrepresenting himself and playing on my emotions. If it is allowed i will post his name on here so no one ever goes to him!

I feel horrible. I know I shouldn't blame myself b/c at the time I thought I was doing the right thing. But now I feel sooooooooo bad for my little friend.

She is doing more things that seem like her: walking with her tail sitcking up , jumping onto bed at night, sitting in sun, purring. These are good signs but she has that stupid collar on her head and hates it. i would too if I were her. sorry venting. I take it off when we watch tv on the couch and when I feed her.
Follow up to previous post: the vet is a plain ol' regular vet. NOTHING specialist about him. Nothing. He is not a surgeon or any other fancy anything. He is a vet who has falsely advertised he is a dental specialist in at least 6 different places.

Glad to hear how well Simba is doing, though!
The office of civil rights said that vets do not have to follow HIPPAA laws so he could give my medical info all he wanted. I asked the OCR to clarify how they came to that conclusion b/c I have paperwork from their website that states other wise..........stonewall............no answer.

However it did violate the AVMA ethics. However, the AVMA has NO authroity over any vet...only the vet boards do. I also learned that over 90% of vet board complaints country-wide are dismissed on their face. What I have learned in the last 1.5 years about the vet "profession" is appauling, horrifying and upsetting. You do not know until something very tragic happens to you or someone you know what it is like.

Smile 8/8/10 update

Simba gained about 1 # 5 oz since last year. I give her sub-q's at home. I have not taken into any vet for anything because it is WAY too TRAUMTIC. They have to sedate her with opiates just to get her out of the carrier. It is horrific to watch and very very very stressful for her. That is no quality of life. That's what this monster did to her I pray she stays helathy until the day she dies so i don't have to put her through that ever ever again.

Anyway she is eating nature Variety Instinct Rabbitt: dry in am (she still wants it) and wet in pm. She is now 15 y.o.

The last year has been filed with me writing legal writs, letters...you name it. I am NOT giving up and I am not going away so this monster can FORGET about that ever happening!

Here is a pic of my baby I took today. Me loves kitteh!

Awww Meow,she is just beautiful,love them Tabbies

I am sorry to say,when it comes to cruelty to animals,the perp,in this case a vet,will get away with it.
That's why it's important that you are able to stick with it,maybe this jerk will at least lose some clients and hopefully have to pay your costs.
to Simba and you..

That's funny Winston,I was just thinking of her too,was going to ask how things are going.
I hope there will be some justice for Simbas suffering,but I somehow doubt it

I know this thread is old, but I have to know if there are any updates. I came across it while googling for advice to get my 19 year old cat to start eating/drinking again and ...wow.

This guy should seriously be charged with animal abuse, plain and simple. The repeated descriptions of "care", unnecessary surgery, disregard to the appropriate procedures/drugs/animals well being. Disgusting. Whatever happened with PETA? (You would think PETA would focus some of their efforts on lobbying to improving animal healthcare regulation.. if they are they are pretty quiet about it.)

Is this vet board that turned down the case the vet board for whatever group he is a part of, or the group that he claimed to be part of but isn't?

I hope he pleads guilty. A guy like this cannot get away by having his liability insurance paying you a settlement. He needs this on his record so hopefully other pets won't be treated poorly for profit.

I hope Simba is doing well. An absolutely precious cat.
