Vet who mistreated her own pets fined by the RSPCA

A vet who mistreated two of her own dogs has been fined hundreds of pounds.

Kerstin Vockert from Sopley in Dorset admitted failling to meet the welfare needs of her cocker spaniel and her shih tzu who were found severely matted.

One was put down by Vockert herself - the other lost an eye and was left blind.

The RSPCA carried out the Prosecution. The 56-year-old continues to practice at the Ark Aid Veterinary Centre on Irving Road in Bournemouth.

From there, Richard Slee sent us this.
