"HSVMA strongly condemns this kind of abhorrent behavior. Veterinarians enjoy a special trust granted to us by society, and when we violate that trust, we do harm to all of society. We appreciate the swift actions by the veterinarian’s employer to fire her. We urge law enforcement authorities and the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to promptly and fully investigate this matter. The veterinary profession must always respond quickly and decisively to the kind of behavior, depicted on social media in this instance."
