UPDATE: LUCY

DOG ABUSED BY VET.

BACKGROUND ON ARTICLE ABOUT LUCY:

This is about Lucy, a canine who suffered hell and as this person quotes she was "a half dead dog". I saw Lucy as being half alive, NOT half dead, and I took care of her, not because she was "Half Dead" but because she was half alive and she felt the pain and fear by Dr. Ginsberg's cruel behavior to her.

A technician who worked for Dr. Ginsberg called me on the phone on Oct. 12, 99 and stated to me Lucy was thrown off the X-ray table, on to the cement floor, all the while she had the broken back.

Normally I ignore these few ignorant people who write such cold hearted letters. But this particular person being in the med field should be educated. if you wish to respond to her, as many have asked for her email, please do so at your own risk and if you feel she may harass you or accuse you of such, please do not respond to her but read this and see the attitude that some medical professional do have.

I will still continue to stand up for Lucy until there is a closure to her case. That was and still is my promise to her. Lisa Marie www.geocities.com/doglucy4justice

EDITORS NOTE: Lisa received the following email in response to this article. Please feel free to write this person if you wish. Please be polite, though her email was anything but courteous. AIP readers are concerned with animals not name calling Hopefully this person will rethink their uncompassionate stance, especially since they state they are entering the medical profession.

Subject: don't you have anything better to do????

I think it is appalling that you have nothing better to do than to complain about a DVM that smacked a half dead dog. I don't think what he did is anything close to torture. I imagine you are not very educated, which is why you are comparing a dog with a human being. I think it would be quite a bit different if a child were being smacked-but a dog-come on-is it really that big of a deal????? Do you have any idea how long it takes to become a doctor? I am a medical student myself, and sometimes doctors can get stressed out. I imagine you wouldn't know anything about that would you? What are you anyway-a home school diploma graduate from some correspondence course in veterinary assisting??? I'm not saying that justifies animal cruelty-but you are really making a mountain out of a mole hill here. I'm surprised this Dr. hasn't sued you for slander!!! I know I sure the hell would have. Why don't you get a life of your own and shut up?
