Veterinarian Arrested for Animal Cruelty, Accused of Keeping Dogs Alive to Harvest Blood

Posted: Updated:
(KCEN) -- Court documents say a Fort Worth veterinarian's own dog was among those being secretly kept alive to be used for blood transfusions.

Millard Tierce is charged with animal cruelty and has had his veterinary license temporarily suspended.

His arrest and suspension came a day after a family accused him of secretly keeping their dog sid alive to provide blood transfusions to other dogs.

The discovery was made months after the dog was supposedly euthanized.

Three animals kept at Tierce's clinic were in such poor health that they needed to be euthanized.

One of those dogs was Tierce's own Border Collie.
