Vet Seen Brutally Abusing Pets Must Lose License

Target: Dr. Larry Caven, President, College of Veterinarians of Ontario

Goal: Don’t allow veterinarian found to have choked and hit pets to continue practicing.

A veterinarian has had his license suspended after being found guilty of repeatedly abusing animals brought into his clinic. Dr. Mahavir Singh Rekhi was allegedly recorded hitting and choking animals at Skyway Animal Hospital in St. Catharines, Ontario. After his staff recorded this abuse and brought it to the veterinary licensing authority, he was only given a slap on the wrist for his deplorable actions. Not only this, but he will be allowed to reduce his suspension to six months upon completion of a short retraining program.

According to reports, veterinary technicians at the clinic recorded 12 separate videos of Rekhi abusing animals for no reason after taking them out of sight of their owners. After these videos were forwarded to the College of Veterinarians of Ontario, he was found guilty of professional misconduct. He will be made to take a retraining class, pay the college $10,000 in fines, and his practice will be subject to three unannounced inspections over the two year period after he regains his license.

Pet owners trust that veterinarians have the best interest of the animals that they treat at heart. Just as a doctor found to be abusing human patients would have his license revoked, this veterinarian should never be allowed to practice again after being found guilty of this type of shocking abuse. Sign the petition below to denounce this lax punishment and demand that Dr. Rekhi has his license revoked completely.

  1. No license should be given back under any circumstances to this abusive person!!!! Just like a certify educator, their license for teaching is being revoked permentaly for improper behavior with a minor or studen!!

  2. Why this Asshole still has a License. Hope People are not to Stupid to take their Pets to his Clinic

  3. Maureen Dalton says:

    his license should be permanently revoked and he should be prosecuted for animal abuse multiple time

  4. Come on, you jerks, if a human doctor was found repeatedly abusing CHILDREN under his care, you can bet your booties his license would be REVOKED, AND he’d be ON TRIAL as well!!! There is NO DIFFERENCE HERE, when our ‘pets’ are ALSO our furred family members and akin to children, in that they can’t stand up for their own welfare! How DARE you let this monster anywhere NEAR another animal ever again! In addition, this asswipe should be investigated in his HOME life to ensure HE doesn’t have any animals himself, and if so, they should be TAKEN AWAY FROM HIM, and no more EVER be allowed to be KEPT by him!!! Seriously, what is WRONG with you people, that this ISN’T a GIVEN in cases like these…and they are not only happening all over Canada (& the US), but are GROWING. Set these vital precedents NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And this is exactly why I would NEVER, EVER leave any ‘pet’ of mine alone, unsupervised by ME, with any vet or vet tech. I KNOW such abuse goes on, unbeknownst to most (overly-naive & trusting) animal guardians!

    No excuse NOT to have his license PERMANENTLY REVOKED! I’m a former Veterinary Assistant ….I’d have turned him in myself….been pleased to do so!
