Dr Jatinder Dhami twice kicked and stamped on Staffordshire bull terrier, Sasha, after she bit him when he gave her an injection in November 2017.
A receptionist, at Vets4Pets in the Pets at Home in the Springfield Retail Park, Leicestershire, told a committee that she saw Dr Dhami attack the dog.It's taken two years...?
But the committee ruled that Dr Dhami would be suspended for four months over the incident, rather than being struck off because he provided good references.*blinks*
Dr Dhami defended his actions, describing them as ‘irrational’ and ‘adrenalin-fuelled’ but denied they were premeditated.
He added that he and his family had been racially targeted since the case.Ah, the Race Card. Always the card of last resort.
The report read: ‘The committee was particularly impressed by the evidence of a registered veterinary nurse who has worked with the respondent for about 12 months.
‘She had no doubt about the respondent’s professionalism and care for animals.’
In its report, the committee said the suspension would be sufficient ‘to protect the welfare of animals, maintain public confidence and to declare and uphold proper standards of conduct.’I can but hope he never works for Vets4Pets again.
Two other allegations relating to a kitten and a Jack Russell dog were rejected.Utter scum.
