Petition to reopen case against veterinary hospitals in dog's death hits 2,800 signatures
A petition to convince Attorney General Joseph A. Foster to reconsider the Consumer Protection Bureau's dismissal of a case made against two New Hampshire veterinary hospitals has gained over 2,800 signatures.
The case claims that a dog, Johnny White, died of an intestine being ripped away from his stomach over the course of 13 days due to acts and omissions by the hospitals.
A post by the dog's advocates says that hospital staff knew as early as day three that the dog had a foreign object, (a rope toy) lodged in his intestine, but the urgent procedure he needed was delayed for two nights.
Complaints of animal cruelty have been filed with Manchester and Hooksett police departments, and malpractice, negligence, and unprofessional conduct complaints have been lodged with the State of New Hampshire Veterinary Board.
