On December 14, 2007, our dog suffered a severe spine injury while in the custody of a Nye County Nevada veterinarian for a kidney x-ray. The injury finally resulted in paralysis of her hind limbs. A formal complaint was filed with the Nevada Veterinary Board of Examiners on September 28, 2008, against the veterinrian.
In January 2009 the Board's Vice-President telephoned to say that he had been chosen to make the recommendation; that our complaint was not serious enough to warrant a thorough investigation - case dismissed. Several days later a letter dated January 30, 2009, arrived from the Board stating that our complaint was investigated and case was dismissed.
Several months later we received a telephone call from the Executive Director in which she stated that the Board only conducts local investigations. During that time period we received a telephone call from a Board Investigator who stated that he was amazed that I didn't yell and swear at him. [continued below]....
..... He also stated that a thorough investigation had been conducted.
The kidney x-ray taken taken in 2007 showed collapsed disc which was verified by another veterinarian as being caused by an injury.
The Board has shown no evidence or proof that a thorough investigation was conducted. We have several letters on file from the Board containing the same old rhetoric as the first letter received.
A letter of complaint to the Board's President was not answered. A letter of complaint to the Nevada Attorney General did not reach her.
I have pursued the Board for over two years trying to get justice for our beloved dog, all to no avail.
A Board meeting is scheduled for October 19, 2011, in Las Vegas. I plan to attend and ask the board: "Why no investigation?" We need justice for our beloved dog.
