    Ok, thanks for that. Nothing to do with vettings of horses yet then.

    I dont think this is the first time he has done something wrong, best avoided in relation to all animals

    no but I posted it so hopefully anyone looking for a vet to vet horses in Kent would be wary.

    I had a pony vetted by him too and have been contacted by many others who have too.

    I would like to avoid anyone else having similar problems. I don't really care why he's struck off - just hope that this time he won't be allowed back.

    OK you lot..let`s give you the facts on this one. David was asked to dock a Rottie litter bred by a security establishment purely for working homes,so he obliged. Now,if the clients were lying THAT is not his fault. As it happens,another vet ..who had worked for him ,his first job in fact,..had one of these docked rotties enter his surgery when it was around six months old.How do I know..I was in that surgery at the time.That vet had parted on bad terms with David,and just could`nt wait to "get" him.Despicible in my opinion to do this to someone good enough to give them their first chance in practice,but there you are ,some folk are scrotes.
    This vet then informed the rspca..no caps you`ll notice..and so it all started up.YESTERDAY THE CASE WAS DISMISSED,END OF STORY.

    Hmmm, I think there is alot more to the interest on here than docked tails.

    Possibly so..but that yet has to be proved,and NO ONE is guilty until PROVED so! I would be totally amazed if anything was proved in the future, I KNOW this guy very well remember ,you lot do not,he is`nt faultless by any means ..but a crook..NEVER.
    By the way ,ANYONE stupid enough to get a horse vetted by the dealers vet has to be less than intelligent in my opinion.
