Fort Worth vet investigated for alleged cruelty


Fort Worth police said Wednesday that officers and Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners agents seized two dogs during a search after receiving a complaint from the client and a former employee.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Marian Harris says the clinic told her the dog needed to be euthanized, but she was later called by a former employee who said the animal was kept alive for six months to obtain plasma.

Tarrant County prosecutors say they consulted with investigators but no charges have been filed.

Police say the investigation is ongoing. The clinic declined comment.
