FORT ST. JOHN -- A Fort St. John veterinarian is facing more disciplinary action from the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia (CVBC)

A notice on the CVBC website states the Gentle Pet Clinic is not allowed to provide veterinarian services at this time.

The notice also said the clinic is able to provide access to medical records and is still able to sell over-the-counter products, as long as they do not contain drugs.

An employee at the clinic is still taking appointments for next week. The employee told CJDC TV News that the clinic will be inspected and if it passes that inspection, veterinarian services will resume.

In the past, the College of Veterinarians of BC has fined  Dr. Harpreet Dhaliwal due to several complaints.

The CVBC regulates the delivery of veterinary medicine in British Columbia to ensure the public and animals are served by competent and ethical professionals. They say Dr. Dhaliwal, a Veterinarian at Gentle Pet Clinic, was facing disciplinary action including a reprimand, a fine and other costs.

The decision was made on August 9 with the board providing minimal information into the investigation last month.

The College of Veterinarians of British Columbia would not answer questions about its latest move to limit the clinic's accreditation.

According to the CVBC, Dhaliwal admitted that he failed to cooperate with the CVBC’s investigation into seven complaints. They say he failed to provide a response to any of the complaints and provide the records requested within the set time.

This comes after numerous complaints from residents in February 2020. A woman spoke up after she said she wasn’t pleased with the care of her deceased cat and pet post-mortem practices.

Dhaliwal was also accused of allegedly abusing animals in his care. Multiple employees left the clinic after the allegations. However, Dhaliwal responded that he was aware of the rules on handling animals.
