Vampire Vet Bled Pet Dog

A Texas veterinarian, Millard Tierce, dubbed the "Vampire Vet" has been arrested after he told the Harris family he was putting down their 4-year-old Leonberger, Sid (a very large dog) only to keep the dog alive for six-months in a cage 24/7 for blood transfusions, meaning he wanted to bleed the dog for blood.  Obviously quite shocking news.

Mrs Harris said that last October she had given the vet permission to euthanise Sid after the veterinarian had told her that her dog was suffering from a congenital spinal disorder.

Last Monday, Mrs Harris received a telephone call from a former employee of Dr Tierce telling her that her dog had been kept alive in a cage for the past 6 months.

Mr & Mrs Harris immediately marched down to the veterinarian's clinic and discovered their dog imprisoned in a pen in a room at the back of the clinic.

They were obviously in shock and their emotions were running high.  There was anger and overjoyed at the same time but they felt a deep sense of breach of trust by their veterinarian.

She had been told by the vet that the dog was terminally ill but when she recovered Sid from his cage he was able to walk and jump into her minivan on his own!

This allegedly wicked veterinarian told a newspaper that Mrs Harris and asked him to euthanise her dog but he could not bring himself to do it.  Nice one, Dr Tierce.

Dr Tierce branded the whistleblower, the former employee who had informed Mrs Harris about her dog, a disgruntled employee who wanted to get back at him.

Those excuses may have worked except for the fact that other horrors awaited police officers who descended on the veterinarians clinic.  Apparently he had kept his own dog alive in the same position in a box on the floor of a room at the clinic since June 2, 2013.  His dog should have been euthanised because the dog was seriously ill with mouth disease, cataracts, degenerative neurological disorder and other ailments.  The dog was also emaciated and had 2 dislocated shoulders. The dog was twitching in pain. Dr Tierce said that he had fed his dog but had withheld medical treatment.  It seems to me that he had been entirely wicked in respect of his own dog.

Officials inspecting the clinic found appalling sanitary conditions, organs kept in jars, unsecured medications and the general mess by the sound of it.  This was a nightmare of veterinary clinic.

They also discovered 5 other pets that this vampire vet had kept in cages for 2 to 3 years.  They were still alive and the vet had accepted them for euthanasia.  He's quite mad if this is true.

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
