During the second week of March 2017, Sugar was taken to the Discount Vet Wellness Clinic in Newark, Ohio for an ear infection. The dog was taken in back for antibiotics and was "accidentally" administered a euthanasia drug. The family was instructed to rush Sugar to Med Vet Animal Hospital in Columbus, Ohio where they might be able to save her.
Sugar was not breathing on her own and had to be hooked up to a ventilator, while Med Vet did everything in their power to save her. Thankfully, Sugar survived, and continues to recover from Discount Vet Wellness Clinic's unforgivable mistake.
But then, less than two weeks later, Discount Vet Wellness Clinic administered a lethal dose of anesthesia to a cat named Jax, who had been brought in for a routine neuter.
Please sign this petition to ask the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board to demand the closure of Discount Vet Wellness Clinic and suspend their license to operate pending a full and immediate investigation into their practice. No more pets and families should suffer because of the clinic's incompetence.

Dear Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board,
We the undersigned demand the closure of Discount Vet Wellness Clinic of Newark Ohio, and that their license to operate be suspended pending a full and immediate investigation into their practice.
On or around March 4, Brownsville resident Brittany Turnbill took her dog Sugar to the clinic to be treated for an ear infection. While under the clinic's care, Sugar was "accidentally" given a euthanization drug. Ms. Turnbill was notified and instructed to rush the dog to Med Vet in Columbus in the hopes that they would be able to save the dog. Med Vet was able to provide life support for Sugar and helped her to metabolize the drug. Thankfully, Sugar survived, but such an egregious mistake never should have happened. Approximately 2 weeks later, Discount Vet Wellness Clinic administered a lethal dose of anesthesia to a cat named Jax, who had been brought in for a routine neuter.
Please investigate before any more pets and families suffer because of their incompetence.
