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.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Along with visual of him abusing a pet, I think there should be a full screen shot of his face, repeatedly posted in social media, at least up in that area.

  2. why is this piece of garbage still allowed to call himself a vet? why hasn’t his license been revoked? are they waiting for him to kill an innocent animal before they do something about it?

  3. After the 3 unannounced inspections and the 2 years passed, he will start all over again. And what if the 3 inspections happen at a time when he is not torturing the pets. Would that be a garantee that he is OK?

  4. This subhuman must NEVER GET HIS LICENSE BACK IN ANY STATE…..ITS A REAL POSSIBILTY HE BECAME A VET IS TO GET CLOSE TO ANIMALS SO HE CAN ABUSE THEM AND POSSIBLY KILL THEM…..HES AN EVIL PERSON…..AND HE SHOULD NEVER HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF OWNING ANY ANIMAL IN HIS MISERABLE LIFETIME..

    MY COMPLAINT IS THAT AFTER I TYPE MY STREET ADDRESS AND CLICK ON THE BAR THAT WILL FILL IN THE REST OF MY INFORMATION, SOMETIMES IT DOES, BUT MOST OF THE TIME IT DOESN’T!!
