Dr. Amy Gentsch, the owner of Dr. Amy’s Animal Clinic in San Carlos Park, Florida is out of jail today along with her husband after they were arrested a week ago.
The local sheriff's depart said they've been investigating the business for the past 8 months.
Arrest warrants for the couple say Dr. Gentsch's husband, Larry Gentsch performed surgeries on patients although he is not a licensed veterinarian. In some cases those surgeries lead to the deaths of pets. He is also charged with giving unauthorized vaccinations and Amy Gentsch was aware of this but allowed him to continue practicing.
Amy had her license placed on probation in March of this year because of complaints from as long ago as 2002, and she was fined $10,000 plus $3,000 in court costs to be paid over five years.
Dr. Amy is denying every charge.
