The nature of Respondent's previous violations and the fact that he repeated those same violations makes him carrying a license an imminent peril to the public. Respondent's actions are also actual hazards to the health, safety, or economic welfare of the public because the economic property of various clients was harmed in that the animal died due to Respondent's actions or the animal needed further veterinary services to repair the damage Respondent's actions caused. Violations include release of a client's confidential information and status as a Complainant of the clinic to clinic's other clients leading to harassment of the client; repeated failure to record required information on patient chart; repeated allowance of non-veterinarian employees to test, diagnose, treat, and provide a prognosis for patients; failure to keep proper controlled substance logs resulting in an inability to discern from the drug logbook whether controlled substances were being used appropriately or being abused. The sheer number of violations of the Board's Rules that have the same or similar factual circumstances underpinning them, in addition to Respondent's issuing of rabies certifications that fraudulently allege the absence of the animal disease rabies, constitute an imminent peril to the public under Board Rule 575.25. Animals affected by this Respondent include Spanky, Apollo, Butch, Gabby, Jericho, Koko, Peaches, Taco, Triscuit, and more.
