Fort Worth, Texas (Fort Worth Star-Telegram) — Authorities raided a well-known veterinary clinic Tuesday morning after a woman said a dog she took in to be euthanized was being kept alive and used for blood transfusions.
Fort Worth police and officers from the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners were inside the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic at 5709 Lovell Ave., in west Fort Worth. No pets had been brought out as of 11:30 a.m.
