Police detectives in Colorado cited a veterinarian with treating humans without a license after allegedly costing a man two toes.
7NEWS in Denver reports that Fran Freemyer of Greeley was issued a citation for treating at least one patient with a foot infection that ended up reaching his bone, which required the toes to be amputated.
From the TV station’s report:
…in a police report obtained by 7NEWS, Freemyer admitted to treating a man with sore toes. The man told detectives he was referred to the veterinarian and Freemyer was “very energetic about his confidence in his ability to fix the foot.”
When questioned by the news station, however, Freemyer denied the charges.
Detectives believe the vet has treated other human patients as well and the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies has launched an investigation.
