In Oklahoma City, a veterinary hospital employee was cursed at and hit with a car door by a couple who abandoned their dog on the property.
According to the Facebook page of Neel Veterinary Hospital, a man and woman arrived at the clinic on Sunday with a gray dog who had been coughing.
“They had some financial limitations and did not like our suggestions for further care. They cursed and yelled at our staff and hit a staff member with their car door. Then after the staff member walked back inside, the man took the dog and tied it up to our side door and drove away,” the vet hospital posted.
The vehicle they were driving was a a matte black chevy SUV(looked like paint was peeling on the hood). A police report will be filed as animal abandonment is a criminal offense but the clinic is hoping that someone can help identify these people.
As for the dog, he is receiving treatment.
The puppy will be kept safe! She is being cared for and doing fine.
From Dr. Neel – “I want to say that I have no problem with this man abandoning his dog at a veterinary hospital whether it’s ours or someone else’s. The dog is getting treatment right now and we would’ve helped a man if he hadn’t acted like he did. The dog was not dying, it does have heart worms but the manner in how he did this is completely unacceptable. It would be one thing if he did that to me as an owner and by the way, I was in the building doing ultrasounds. But he chose to pick on defenseless staff members. These people do not make the rules, they just enforce them. This is why many veterinarians and staff members in the veterinary profession suffer from compassion fatigue. Nobody got into veterinary medicine because they wanted to be rich. They got into veterinary medicine because they love animals. Many of my staff and staff of other veterinary hospitals spend some of their own money fostering and finding homes for abandoned or injured pets.
They should not be treated this way. It’s not a problem at all that he left the dog with us it’s the manner in which he left it it’s the problem.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the clinic.
