This story broke day before yesterday and it just gets uglier and uglier. ========================== (click the headline below for full story and news videos) Fort Worth Vet Accused of Keeping Dog Alive for Transfusions A Fort Worth veterinarian has lost his license after admitting in a handwritten statement that he secretly kept alive several dogs, including one of his own that was decrepit, that should have been euthanized. The veterinarian license for Dr. Millard Lou Tierce was temporarily suspended Wednesday by the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners after Tierce admitted to wrongdoing. That same day Tierce was arrested on an animal cruelty charge stemming from the lack of care given to his personal pet, a border collie kept at the clinic. Tierce's arrest came a day after a family accused his practice, the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic, of secretly keeping their dog Sid alive to provide blood transfusions to other dogs months after he was to have been euthanized. The family agreed to euthanize Sid, a 5-year-old, 170 pound Leonberger, after Tierce diagnosed the dog with a congenital spine disorder. Six months after agreeing to euthanize their pet, a vet tech at the clinic reached out to them to let them know their pet was still alive. According to the temporary suspension order, Tierce admitted to not euthanizing five pets accepted for euthanization, including Sid, who was used in the alleged transfusions. The order did not speculate as to whether the other dogs were used for medical procedures. Dr. Michael Morris, with the Fort Worth Animal Clinic, determined Wednesday that three animals kept at the clinic were in such poor shape that they needed to be euthanized. Tierce said that one of those animals, a border collie, was his personal pet and that the other two had been left at the clinic to be euthanized along with two other animals. One of the other two animals had been kept in a cage at the clinic for as long as three years after being accepted for euthanasia, Tierce said in his statement.
