License of Fort Worth vet suspended for 5 years

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A state panel has suspended the license of a North Texas veterinarian who investigators say told clients that he had euthanized their pets but instead kept them alive in cages for months.

The State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners on Tuesday suspended Millard Lucien Tierce’s license for five years.

His license earlier was suspended and the board’s action extends the punishment.

A state order says the 71-year-old Tierce violated standards of care at his Fort Worth clinic and failed to conduct a practice with honesty and integrity.

A search of his clinic came after a client alleged Tierce told her that her dog needed to be euthanized, but that she was called by a former employee months later who told her the animal had been kept alive for blood transfusions.
