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.

Lou Tierce, a long-time Fort Worth veterinarian, is accused of deceiving Jamie and Marian Harris of Aledo into believing that their 5-year-old Leonberger named Sid was euthanized last fall because of a degenerative spinal condition.

Our family supports this brilliant Man,

Yep! "Deep pockets" help too. Google "Treat Me Kindly". Keeping a loved, disabled pet alive for purposes of blood transfusions? Alone in the clinic? You call this compassionate, insightful & quality care? Veterinarians like this...they take your money & take your money by extending longevity & quality(?) of life....dispensing meds that "mask" the symptoms; helping YOU, not your pet... "heroic resolve"?..."brandished the best science and caring"?...all the way to the bank. NO EXCUSE!
