11616 McKinney 2017-074 10/10/2017 Professional Standard of Care;  Veterinarian Patient Record Keeping On April 30, 2016, owner dropped off his two-year-old English Bulldog Spike to Respondent to examine a skin problem. Respondent’s medical records do not include details necessary to substantiate the examination, diagnosis, and treatments recommended. Before Spike was picked up by owner,  Spike had an unavoidable anaphylactic reaction to an antihistamine injection of diphenhydramine even though he had received those before without suffering allergic reaction. Respondent successfully stabilized Spike and took radiographs which revealed widespread pulmonary congestion. Respondent then recommended that Spike be transferred to an emergency facility for continued treatment. Respondent discharged Spike for transport with his trachea tube in place and IV fluid running. Neither Respondent or technician from Respondent’s clinic accompanied Spike in the transport. When Spike arrived at the emergency facility the trachea tube had been regurgitated and there was blood in the back of the vehicle. After approximately six hours of care at the emergency clinic, Spike recovered and was discharged.  Informal Reprimand; $1,000 admin. penalty; 3 hrs add'l CE in recordkeeping

11616 McKinney 2017-147 10/10/2017 Professional Standard of Care; Responsibility of Veterinarian to Refer a Case; Veterinarian Patient Record Keeping On December 19, 2016, owner presented her five-year-old cat Cooper  to Respondent to have a dermal mass removed and a dental cleaning. Respondent’s medical records do not include details necessary to substantiate an examination, diagnosis or recommended treatments for Cooper. Respondent resected the tumor and technicians began cleaning Cooper’s teeth. During the dental procedure Cooper’s IV fluid was interrupted. The technician flushed the catheter with clear fluid, believing the syringe contained sterile saline but in fact contained Immiticide intended for a different patient with heartworm disease. The technician immediately notified Respondent of the mistake. Respondent increased the flow rate of IV fluids, drew another blood sample for analysis, and monitored Cooper. Cooper recovered from anesthetic, but his breathing rate decreased,  he lost consciousness, and his heart stopped. Resuscitative efforts were unsuccessful. Respondent had not consulted any other sources for treatment, including Plumb’s Veterinary Drug Handbook (8th edition) which includes information on possible antidotes to Immiticide, nor did Respondent refer Cooper to a specialist or another veterinarian.  Formal Reprimand; $1,000 admin. penalty

11225 Houston 2017-102 12/05/2017 Professional Standard of Care;  Veterinarian Patient Record Keeping; Board's Rules of Professional Conduct On May 19, owner presented his four-year-old German Shepherd Cookie to Respondent at Panda Wellness Cener for a spay procedure. The medical records indicate that the owner declined pre-surgical bloodwork and IV catheter fluids, but they do not include a patient history and Respondent was not aware that Cookie had delivered three previous litters. Cookie bled extensively during the procedure. Respondent stated that she performed transfixion ligatures but this is not included in the medical records. Respondent's medical records indicate the closure was routine. When owner arrived later that day to pick up Cookie he was informed that she had excessive bleeding from the midline incision. Respondent ran blood work and applied an abdominal bandage. Respondent stated that the blood work and physical examination indicated that there was no active bleeding and no need for immediate surgical intervention. Respondent recommended that Cookie be taken to North Houston Veterinary Specialists Center for 24-hour monitoring and diagnostics. On leaving, Cookie collapsed in the parking lot and the owner took Cookie to the nearest veterinary facility. The veterinarian there concluded she was bleeding internally and was in extreme hypovolumenic shock. When that veterinarian performed surgery he noted that Cookie's abdomen was overfilled with whole blood and many large blood clots. Cookie went into respiratory and cardiac arrest and did not respond to resuscitation attempts.  Informal Reprimand; $500 admin. penalty; 3 hrs. add'l CE in recordkeeping; 3 hrs. add'l CE in critical care; Restitution $137

After dental examination by Respondent, owner authorized Respondent to perform bloodwork, dental cleaning, necessary dental extractions, and other grooming procedures. Respondent performed pre-operative dental radiographs and did not perform post-operative dental radiographs. Respondent released Purrl to owner and dispensed Nalbuphine drops for post-operative pain management. Nalbuphine provides short-term pain management and is not a standard medication for pain management following multiple dental extractions. The owner continued to report symptoms and concerns to Respondent who directed her to syringe feed Purrl during recovery and to decrease Purrl's pain medicine by half. Owner was concerned that Purrl continued to be uncomfortable while eating on her own and was not behaving normally. On May 16, 2016, owner presented Purrl to another veterinarian for a dental examination. That veterinarian performed dental radiographs that revealed a retained root at the site of an extraction that Respondent performed.
