Had trouble opening the link so here is the whole story:
A local veterinarian has agreed to surrender her license after using what some say is a very unorthodox method of putting animals to sleep.
For 17 years, Bobbie was Amy Havranek’s best friend.
“Bobbie was just like a dog,” Havranek said. “He did clicker training. He knew sit, stay, come, and he was just amazing.”
So naturally, she was heartbroken when she learned Bobbie had diabetes and was suffering.
While it was a gut wrenching decision, she was told by Dr. Bea Turk at Countryside Animal Clinic in Brunswick that Bobbie’s quality of life had diminished. So she decided to have him put to sleep.
“I asked her if she was going to sedate him and she didn’t answer me, so I just figured she was going to,” Havranek said.
But that didn’t happen, and Amy said what happened next still haunts her.
“All of a sudden I just saw Dr. Turk do something really quick to Bobbie,” Havranek said. “I said to her, ‘did you just stab him the heart,’ and she wouldn’t answer me.”
She said her cat was not sedated.
“Bobbie didn’t die,” Havranek said. “Bobbie laid there screaming and screaming and screaming and I was hysterical.”
Amy said Dr. Turk then did the same thing.
“And I saw her; she stabbed him right in the heart. Bobby screamed like I never heard an animal scream before and I almost passed out. I was in a state of shock,” Havranek said.
Amy filed a complaint with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board. State law bans the procedure Dr. Turk used, which is referred to as a Cardiac Stick, without an animal being sedated.
The board investigated and on Wednesday, entered into a consent agreement with Dr. Turk. The agreement states Dr. Turk violated the state’s standards of care and must surrender her license in 30 days.
The agreement also states that Dr. Turk will never reapply to get her license back.
The news of Dr. Turk’s agreement is a relief to Amy and to another woman, who had a similar situation with her dog, Honeypot.

“She injected her in the chest and I thought that was strange, but I’m not a vet.”
Dr. Turk did not return our calls to comment on the situation.
This made me so mad and upset!!!!! "Awww your poor cat is suffering" let me just stab him the in heart I would love nothing more than to drive up to her office and punch her in the face This is the second unbelievable cat story in our local news this week. First the officer shooting the 5 kittens in North Ridgeville, and now this story from Brunswick. Hopefully today I'll see some
so what's the difference?
As long as the doc didn't charge her for the anethesia, her bill was lower!
