Last week, we featured the horrific story of what went on behind closed doors at Camp Bowie Animal Clinic in Fort Worth, Texas. Now, the Harris familywhose dog, Sid, was kept alive by veterinarian Lou Tierce long after he was supposed to have been euthanizedis suing the vet:
In their lawsuit, the Harris’ alleged that Tierce initially told them that Sid needed minor anal gland treatment in May of 2013. They often visited Sid and were told he was getting better.
But in September, Jamie Harris went to see his dog and discovered Sid could not lift his hind quarters.
In October, the family was told that Sid had the degenerative spinal defect and the Harris’ reluctantly decided to have him euthanized. They even discussed burial at Tierce’s farm.
But they later learned that Sid allegedly was injured when an employee “flipped” the dog into a bathtub, and the dog landed on his back in an unnatural position, the lawsuit said.
Let’s hope that the truth about all these allegations comes out.
