BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport veterinary doctor spoke to News 12 Connecticut Saturday about being placed on probation by the state Veterinary Board over the dosage amount for vaccine injections.

Dr. John Robb says he was placed on probation for giving smaller dogs half doses of the rabies vaccine in an effort to not hurt or kill them in the process.

"You're telling me that if there's a law that would force me to kill my patient I would have to do it? You know what the state board of Connecticut said? Yes. I said, 'You are crazy,'" Dr. Robb told News 12. "The way you get rid of a law like that is you break it."

"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."

It is refreshing when I hear or read a story of a vet standing up to the BS.   DrLisaPiersonWorthy
