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,

  1. This piece of s**t needs to be stripped of his licensure. Since the licensing boards are too lenient, his name and likeness need to be spread far and wide and no one will give him business. His abusive behavior will NOT stop; it’s just a matter of him being good while he’s under investigation. This sociopath needs to go to work scrubbing toilets. He’s no professional and I hope he rots in hell. Never let any of them treat your pets without your supervision!!!!

    Dr. Caven – If this situation doesn’t warrant Mahavir Singh Rekhi losing his Veterinarian’s License, then please tell me what it would take for you to take some serious action here? This guy is obviously ‘not quite right’ and needs professional help. What kind of a human being – especially a licensed Vet – treats other living beings this way? Get him out of there Larry…

    You know how to get rid of this guy put him out of business by spreading the word of his actions. You have the filmed proof of what he did so spread it around on youtube, facebook and any other place you can think of. He can’t hurt any animal if he has no customers. In other words, bankrupt him.

  5. I would put a triangle choke on this dude if he dared treat my animals like this. He needs a bully beat down.

  6. a slap on the wrist of the authorities, but he’d get a slap in his face (with a fist) from myself if he’d done that to one of my animals.

  7. Lose a licence? Is that all?

  8. Debra A Gannon says:

    He would be dead if i caught him doing this to any of my precious animals.. Get him out of here and check to see if he is an American citizen if not ship him back whete he came from.. POS!!!

  9. What a complete bastard I would wring his neck. AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE TO THE VETERINARY PROFESSION HE CLEARY HAS NO COMPASSION WHATSOEVER AND DOUBTLESS GETS A KICK OUT OF WHAT AMOUNTS TO TORTURE, THOSE POOR CREATURES ARE SICK AND TERRIFIED THEY DONT NEED A SADISTIC VET ADDING TO THEIR ORDEAL, JESUS H CHRIST ! STRIP HIM OF HIS LICENCE AND CHARGE HIM WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY. SICK SCUM !

  10. Sharon Andrew says:
