Believe what you want to believe but the person who witnessed his cruelty was not lying. And records show this vet signed off on dogs in puppy mills for the breeders without ever examining them that they were healthy. Many families who bought these dogs suffered great emotional toll not to say the expense of fixing a very sick puppy!
This is being ethical? If he ran his practice ethically, he wouldn't need to save on his taxes by not paying them to survive. A vet practice can be very lucrative.
Saving money to survive and not paying taxes are two different issues....one is legal the other is not.....
Relax.....justice will prevail but we dog lovers hope he nevers get near another puppy again.

It is pretty obvious to me that as long as he was getting paid vet's wages, he might have treated HIS practice's patients appropriately. Haven't you ever heard the saying about serial killers? But he was so nice, kind and considerate! Same goes for this disgusting vet. He obviously has a dark side whether you choose to believe it or not.
Another note - check out this article about puppy mills. Are these SPCA agents also making it up?

Another note - this didn't happen in this small town. It happened someone else. I guess he thought he was "safe" from being caught, or found out about, with doing these horrific deeds 50-60 miles away in another county. I am GLAD that he was caught and I hope they lock him up too. He has shown no mercy to the defenseless, helpless animals. He shouldn't be shown mercy either. Just think of him doing that to YOUR pet. It's horrible!

Chesco vet convicted of animal cruelty
A Chester County veterinarian has been convicted of animal cruelty after he removed part of a puppy's tail without anesthesia while holding it under scalding water.
District Judge Stuart Mylin in Lancaster County said Tom Stevenson of Honey Brook neglected an animal he had a duty to care for when he performed the procedure on the nine-week-old puppy in the wash room of a kennel.
A prosecutor said Stevenson acted against all "reasonable veterinary judgment" when in March he used unsterilized scissors in an unsanitary setting and failed to give the animal pain medication or proper treatment for the wound.
Stevenson, whose medical license was suspended by the state veterinary board in May as a result of the cruelty charge, testified that he was performing first aid on a previously injured dog and used the tools he had on hand. Stevenson's attorney said he would appeal yesterday's conviction.

Need to hope that the PA vet board REVOKES his license permanently.
Hmm, wonder what the sentence will bring ...
