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.

We got the same result from this Board. Dismissed WITHOUT an investigation.

AUTHOR: Investigator In CA - (USA)

We have also filed a complaint after our helpless dog was injected with a medication she should have never been given. The board dismissed the complaint without ever contacting our witnesses. After reading up on this Board, their high percentage rate of dismissals, and the realization that they are 100% funded by the veterinary fees in the State of Nevada, we should have known the outcome before ever filing complaints.  Just another case of "the fox guarding the hen house." Our RipOffReport is under:

We are concerned it is not showing under your complaint so that consumers can see this is a pattern and a problem.

God Help You If You Own A Pet in Nevada

AUTHOR: Jr - (USA)

God help you if you own a pet in Nevada.  Face it, anywhere else but in Nevada, you'd be a criminal.  That's why criminals LOVE Reno, Washoe County and NEVADA! The word is out these criminal and unethical behaviors described here are the NORM in Reno, Washoe County and Nevada.  Reno, Washoe County  and Nevada already have a bad reputation in the national media; a talk with home insurers confirms people and businesses are fleeing Reno and Nevada, and even Wall Street had DOWNgraded Reno REPEATEDLY to Junk Status.  These shocking behaviors by Reno businesses and Nevada public employees give a further black-eye to Reno, Washoe County and Nevada which Reno is now a  A Blighted Ghost-town and Nevada a blighted State.  This business has been notorious for years for their shoddy business and neighbor practices.
