New Hampshire Citizens & residents:
Please express your concerns to your elected representatives and senators.
Animal inhumane treatment, inhumane euthanasia, prolonged suffering is never justifiable.
Unethical and uncompassionate treatment of humans is deplorable
Misrepresentation & deception for the benefit of obtaining a teaching tool to circumvent USDA Animal Welfare Act & financial gain is unacceptable. Clinics and veterinarians not DEA licensed to administer narcotics should be seeking employment in other sectors. This practice has been tolerated & excused in this state for YEARS!
Sen. Jack Barnes was contacted by me January 25, 07.
excerpt from my letter:
"What I expected from the Board was to uphold their duty as Stewards of their profession and protect the citizens of New Hampshire from this type of behavior.The Board has not only done a disservice to the Citizens of New Hampshire but have equally placed an injustice on all the ethical, honest, and caring Veterinarians in the State. ...How many people need to be scammed to this extent before action is taken? ... The Veterinarian I filed a complaint against has lost all compassion for not only animals but their human owners as well.....Where do I go from here? Would the Governor's office or Attorney General's Office take this forward? Would they look into the conduct, or lack of it, of the NH Board of Veterinary Medicine? My motive was simple: (redacted) people during their time of tremendous grief, there is a big penalty. I have been harmed in the truest sense. I can not live with the thought and probability that this will happen to other pet owners."
