‘Doggy doctor shopping’ case has police cautioning veterinarians to be aware

It is because of cases like these that we require a client/patient relationship with our hospital before prescribing medications. We cannot and will not prescribe medications for a pet we have not seen. In addition, with the use of controlled drugs or medications which can be abused we pay careful attention to how fast a client may go through a prescription.

When certain drugs are prescribed  for a pet that may have effects on certain organs like the liver or kidney we require that blood tests are periodically checked to be certain that these organs are functioning normally. We take all the precautions to protect your pets, but are also alert to be certain that no abuse of any of these drugs occur as well.

COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — Police arrested a South Salt Lake man Friday who they believe was using his dog to get prescription drugs for himself.
Oliver Clifton Moore was arrested Friday after a veterinarian in Cottonwood Heights alerted police. Moore later admitted he was going to different veterinarians and using his dog to help feed his own addiction, police said.
When Moore brought his dog to American Paws Veterinary Hospital at 7884 Highland Drive on Jan. 23, veterinarian Jolie Pope said she had no reason to believe something fishy might be going on.
“Initially, I wasn’t suspicious,” Pope said Saturday. “He was actually a very nice gentleman.”
