On 4/28/04 I filed a complaint with the WA Vet Board due to the needless/senseless death of my companion dog as a direct result inappropriate/incompetent veterinarian care:
The complaint was accepted and I was informed that the "investigative phase" was closed 2/25/05 and there presently is no known time frame for any WA Vet Board decision(s) to be made as the last three(3)meetings/agendas have been canceled and the next meeting/agenda may or may not be scheduled for August, 2005.
Because further research/investigation on my part revealed not only veterinarian incompetence but consumer fraud as well as inappropriate/illegal drug use, an apparent "cover-up" and subsequent destruction of the "evidence" as to the true cause of my dog's death, inappropriate distribution of confidential medical records without consent, and a filing of false information to the FDA, I continued to provide the WA Vet Board with the additional allegations and supporting evidence before the investigative phase was closed and additionally and continuously asked/demanded that any/all portions of my complaint that were not within the power/territory of the WA Vet Board to deal with and/or rule on to be referred by them to the appropriate agencies to deal with, but I have never been given any information regarding whether or not this was done by the WA Vet Board.
By this e-mail, I am respectively requesting that as GOVERNOR you advise me on when the WA Vet Board will be making a decision on my "case" AND what other steps I must take in order that all other appropriate State agencies have the information to deal with their appropriate portions of this matter.
As my single phone line is a dedicated Internet connection ONLY, I ask that you contact me via e-mail or U.S. Mail with your response. Thank you.
