The complaint states that other veterinarians have confirmed Sid’s status as a blood donor, as well as the filth and “hoarding” nature of the clinic.
A spokesman for Eggleston, Flowers & King LLP said the firm is also representing Brewer and former clinic employee Karen Covington as whistle blowers. The Harrises are expected to file a civil lawsuit against the clinic.
The law firm is still gathering information, he said.
“We are fielding calls from former employees of the Camp Bowie Animal Clinic and other pet owners with similar encounters with Dr. Lou Tierce and the clinic,” he said. “The number of potential plaintiffs grows as the day progresses.
“There are multiple witnesses of other encounters, as well as horrific other stories,” he added. “It is approaching a dozen employees and clients of the clinic with stories dating back to 1997.”
The spokesman said the firm has learned that three other complaints have since been filed with the state board.
Tierce could not be reached for comment Wednesday evening but told other media organizations that the allegations are false and Brewer is a disgruntled employee.
Jamie Harris has mixed emotions about the incident.
“We have our dog back, and we’re happy,” he said, “but when we found out what was going on, it was hard. This is about making sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.”
