The dog had a severe reaction to the injection, compounded by the fact that the same veterinarian did not provide glucose to the dog as was indicated by BSL at the time of fatal injection. To summarize, this dog suffered an agonizing and heartbreaking reaction and had to be euthanized 48 hours after the injection.
This agency was contacted to investigate the veterinarian that administered this drug because; the veterinarian should have known the drug was contraindicated and the veterinarian administered the drug without the knowledge or consent of the caregiver. This agency was specifically contacted because they are charged with any veterinary complaint in the State of Nevada, where this occurred. Our formal written complaint filed with this agency included the names and contact numbers of witnesses present at the time of the fatal injection and attempts to save this dog.
This agency assigned the case to their "investigator" who presented to the Board on 01/31/13 that this case should be dismissed. This case was dismissed by the Board on 01/31/13, without the investigator ever contacting even one of the witnesses provided in the official complaint.
I am an investigator in CA. I am also the individual who rescued this beloved little dog in Northern CA, on New Years Eve, 2010. After she was cleaned up and provided some urgent medical treatment, she was given a wonderful home with my mother in Las Vegas, NV. I am no stranger to Yorkie' s, their liver conditions, or medications indicated and contraindicated for them. That being said, the medication injected into this precious and defenseless dog was not the glucose that was requested or discussed with the caregiver prior to being administered by the veterinarian.
As an investigator, it is always a requirement to interview the witnesses during an investigation. To not do so is a flagrant, negligent, malpractice of ones duties. For the investigator at this agency to not interview witnesses and then recommend a dismissal of this complaint is a total miscarriage of justice for this beloved little dog who suffered immensely and ultimately lost her life. There is no doubt that this Board and their investigator have placed other beloved animals at risk in the State of Nevada by not completing the most basic investigation prior to dismissal.
God help all the helpless animals and their heartbroken companions in the State of Nevada.
