I think one of the toughest things about being a veterinarian or doctor must be having a patient lose their life after a procedure. It's upsetting and sometimes pet owners go all out to 'get' the veterinarian who last saw their animal. Sometimes they have a good reason to be upset and sometimes they don't. It's hard to judge when reading about such an incident in the news.....
Recently charges were filed against a Florida veterinarian after a woman's dog died within 72 hours of being treated by him.
An Atlantic Beach woman said her dog died less than 72 hours after a visit to the veterinarian's office. Now, formal charges have been filed against the vet, but that same veterinarian is saying the woman's claims are "maliciously false."
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations has filed formal charges against Langford in Awesomer's death.
