(Approximately 90% of ALL consumer veterinary complaints alleging malpractice and
reported to State Boards are DISMISSED! Truly Mission: Impossible)
Below is the text of our original complaint we mailed to the Board. All of the facts and evidence were included as attachments and are included on this website on the other pages. This website is our complaint in online form for all the world to see. It truly is Mission: Impossible to get the Texas Vet Board to hold guilty vets accountable. Why does the Board protect vets, not pets?
TEXT OF THE OFFICIAL COMPLAINT MAILED TO THE TSBVME
OUR 8 YEAR OLD AKC CHAMPION-SIRED MALE SHIH TZU, STEMPY, PASSED AWAY ON 9/30/05….THREE DAYS AFTER SURGERY PERFORMED BY DR. ANN THOMAS FOR BLADDER STONES. WE ARE CONVINCED THAT HIS DEATH WAS A DIRECT RESULT OF THE NEGLIGENT CARE AND/OR LACK OF CARE PROVIDED BY DR. THOMAS. THIS NEGLIGENCE CONCERNS ALL ASPECTS OF STEMPY’S CARE DATING BACK TO NOVEMBER 2003, WHEN DR. THOMAS SAW STEMPY FOR THE FIRST TIME FOR BLADDER STONES, AND CULMINATES IN STEMPY’S UNTIMELY AND PREVENTABLE DEATH ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2005. ATTACHED YOU WILL FIND A TIMELINE OF EVENTS OF THE NEGLIGENT CARE PROVIDED STEMPY BY DR. THOMAS, ALONG WITH SEVERAL PROMINENT VETERINARY OPINIONS REGARDING THE CARE AND TREATMENT OF UROLITHIASIS IN CANINES. ALSO ATTACHED ARE A COPY OF STEMPY’S RECORDS WITH DR. THOMAS THAT REINFORCES OUR CLAIM OF SUBSTANDARD AND NEGLIGENT CARE. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN OUR MINDS THAT DR. THOMAS PROVIDED SUBSTANDARD CARE, AND AFTER REVIEWING THE AFOREMENTIONED ATTACHMENTS, WE FEEL THAT YOU, TOO, WILL COMPLETELY AGREE WITH US THAT THE CARE WAS SUBSTANDARD AND NEGLIGENT. WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR RESPONSE.

(PREPARED BY: GREG & CINDY MUNSON)
(SEPTEMBER 2003 TO OCTOBER 2005)
NOTE: Stempy was an 8 year old AKC CHAMPION sired Shih Tzu. He had 41 champions in his 5 generation pedigree.
The average lifespan for a Shih Tzu is 14+ years, with many living up to 18 years and beyond.
He was truly a once in a lifetime dog. He was robbed of, at least, close to half of his life.
We loved him dearly and miss him more than words could ever say!
Stempy had experienced, on two prior occasions several years ago, what can best be described as a seizure. These occurred a few years apart from each other and both occurred while he was sleeping. While this concerned us, we were able to get him to “snap out of it” rather quickly on both occasions. We had never reported this to a vet until November 1, 2003….when Dr. Thomas told us that Stempy would require surgery. This was going to be the first surgery….of any kind…ever…..for Stempy. Knowing that Stempy had his seizures while sleeping, the thought of anesthesia scared us to death. To us, this was the most important piece of information we had, if he required any type of surgery. We discussed this with ourselves before ever arriving at the vet, and how this was crucial information if surgery was required. Once Dr. Thomas told us he would need surgery, we immediately told her exactly what we have stated above.

Regarding Ann K. Thomas, DVM, Mesquite, TX Complaint ~ Re: Stempy Munson
Submitted by: Greg & Cindy Munson
On 10/13/2005, we requested a full and complete copy of Stempy's records, including his x-rays. On 10/18/2005, only his written records were faxed to us. We still have never received, nor have we seen, x-rays contained in his file, in DIRECT VIOLATION of board rule 573.52(c). Dr. Thomas told us on 10/13/2005, that unless she was served a subpoena, she would never provide us with Stempy's complete records.
The lack of any follow up care or monitoring after the first surgery is one of many grievous errors. Dr. Thomas also states in Stempy's Records on 9/27/05 that she did a Perineal Urethrostomy. If the definition of a Urethrostomy is a permanent opening caudal to the os penis that is large enough to accomodate passage of most urethral calculi....well, that is NOT what was done. No permanent opening was made and Stempy remained intact. While we are certainly no veterinarians, it appears to us that maybe Dr. Thomas does not know the difference between a Urethrotomy and a Urethrostomy....scary thought! We think she may have done a Urethrotomy, however, she cut him open from his anus to his scrotum. She did not have permission to perform either procedure. She states that it was an emergency procedure....if it was an emergency procedure on 9/27, then it was an emergency procedure on 9/24. Nothing had changed. She should have taken a radiograph on 9/24, then she would have known. We are NOT buying that she could not have called us to seek our permission. She did not want to call us because she knew she had messed up. She never even called to let us know his condition.

Please find attached the written professional opinion of a local veterinarian located here in the city of Mesquite: ****(Note to website visitors: The veterinarian mentioned below was kind enough to provide the letter that follows; we thought we would be kind in return and x out their name and address information for obvious reasons. Of course, nothing was x'ed out on the original of this page that was submitted to the TSBVME. We are grateful for the letter we received. By the way, we feel confident in saying that Stempy would still be alive if we had found and chose this veterinarian in September 2003, instead of our devastating choice of "Dr." (...yea, right) Ann K. Thomas, DVM. We have to live with that horrific choice for the rest of our lives. You can be damn sure we won't make that mistake again...but it's too late for Stempy. As much as we blame ourselves for our wrong choice and our misplaced total trust of Ann K. Thomas, DVM, it shouldn't have to be our job to make sure the veterinarian knows her job. But, guess what? If you want to avoid the pain and heartbreak we have endured and are continuing to endure, you will MAKE IT YOUR JOB to make sure your veterinarian knows their job. It's a sad state of affairs, but that's just the way it is. Total trust? NEVER AGAIN!! We miss you, Stempy!!) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, DVM

Bladder and Urethral stones are common problems in dogs and cats. There is often an underlying infection or metabolic problem that causes the stones to form. Once a pet has been diagnosed and treated, our office recommends quarterly urinalyses to detect any changes that might cause the stones to recur.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------*****Note to website visitors:
It should be obvious, but the key point in the letter above is the QUARTERLY URINALYSES------ "Dr." Thomas FAILED to perform, or even recommend, this most crucial step of his aftercare....FOR CLOSE TO 2 YEARS..... Folks, in our eyes, we allege that this failure can only be two things:1. VETERINARY NEGLIGENCE or
2. VETERINARY INCOMPETENCE
on the part of ANN K. THOMAS, DVM ...which, in her case, must mean:
M(edicine).One more time ...... NEVER blindly trust your veterinarian!!
What happened to Stempy?
Stempy had a problem with bladder stones. This is a condition that needs to be monitored and managed. There is much more to managing this condition than just a diet change. (Read this at VeterinaryPartner.com to learn about Stempy's condition.) Stempy was already on a prescription diet from his previous vet due to a previous problem with stones. This was dealt with by his prior vet nonsurgically. We changed vets in the Fall of 2003 because we never saw the same vet twice at our old clinic. We wanted a vet who would get to know our dogs. It was then that we made the worst decision of our lives in our choice of a new vet.
Dr. Ann Thomas - Rodeo Drive Veterinary Hospital (aka Rodeo Dr. Vet Rodeo Dr Veterinary Hospital Canine & Cat Corral , Rodeo Drive Animal ) - was a solo practitioner close to home. We had started buying Stempy’s prescription diet from Dr. Thomas in September 2003. Since Dr. Thomas had never seen Stempy, she required us to provide his records from his previous veterinarian in order to dispense his prescription diet. (*-Note that in Stempy’s records from Dr. Thomas, she claims that his previous records contained no mention of his bladder stone history. If that is the case, then what in the world was she doing dispensing a prescription diet to Stempy without ever seeing him? Isn't that a failure to establish a vet/patient relationship?) Dr. Thomas sold us Stempy’s prescription diet several times before doctor and patient ever met.
met Dr. Thomas (aka
Ann K Thomas DVM Ann Thomas DVM Ann K. Thomas DVM Ann Thomas,
DVM Ann K. Thomas, DVM Ann K Thomas, DVM Dr. Ann K. Thomas, DVM
) , of
Rodeo Drive Veterinary Hospital (aka
Dr. Vet Rodeo Dr Veterinary Hospital Canine & Cat Corral
Rodeo Drive Animal ),
for the first time under adverse circumstances. In
November of 2003, Stempy had a urethral obstruction (Dr. Thomas and the
Texas Vet Board need to read and reread and STUDY this link on urethral obstruction
link on canine retrograde urohydropropulsion: a standard of care
caused by a bladder stone blocking his urethra. This is a medical
Of course, all we knew at the time is that Stempy
go pee and he was very uncomfortable. Dr. Thomas was able to wash the
obstruction back to his bladder. As she should, she took radiographs to
see the stone, and she did a urinalysis. Based on the urinalysis, she
changed his diet. She sent Stempy home wearing a catheter to wait a few
days for a cystotomy to be performed. We informed Dr. Thomas of a few
seizure-like episodes Stempy had experienced in his past because we
were worried it would cause problems with his anesthesia. Dr. Thomas
responded to this information by saying, “Oh
Thomas denies this conversation ever occurred – we remember
vividly) Stempy had his cystotomy and recovered well from surgery.
Based on lab results, Dr. Thomas again changed Stempy’s diet.
Stempy had one additional urinalysis at one post surgical follow up
appointment that contradicted the lab results and her again changing
his diet. She paid no attention and should have changed his diet again,
but did not...she left him on a diet not even formulated for bladder
stones and had him on this wrong diet for the remainder of his life.
From our extensive research after Stempy’s death (also see Consider page of this website), we learned that Dr. Thomas did not follow proper protocol starting with this very first surgery. Dr. Thomas failed to take post surgical radiographs after the cystotomy to verify removal of all stones. Dr. Thomas failed to recommend quarterly urinalyses to monitor his urine. This is a MUST for bladder stone patients as many patients form new stones in the future. Dr. Thomas failed to recommend twice yearly radiographs. This is a MUST with the goal being to catch new stones forming while they are small enough to be removed non-surgically.
There were several opportunities to recommend a urinalysis or radiograph to us to monitor Stempy’s condition. Dr. Thomas never recommended anything. (See Timeline page of this website.)
In March of 2005, Stempy again had a urethral obstruction. We were not sure that is what it was at the time. Dr. Thomas failed to take radiographs to ensure her diagnosis. She again washed the stone back to the bladder to relieve the obstruction. A cystotomy was scheduled for the following week and Stempy was sent home wearing a catheter again. When we went to pick up Stempy post surgery, somehow the stone had magically disappeared, so no cystotomy was performed. We were never shown radiographs to back up Dr. Thomas’ claim. No future monitoring was recommended or performed.
In September 2005, Stempy again had a urethral obstruction that unblocked itself just prior to going to see Dr. Thomas. Despite his prior history, Dr. Thomas failed to take radiographs and failed to diagnose bladder stones, even though she was told he was obstructed and had been for a day until just prior to coming in. She said he just had elevated sperm in his urine and sent him home. This event right here is a FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE and is BELOW the standard of care ESPECIALLY with his PRIOR HISTORY of stones WITH THIS VET!
WHY, please tell us, WHY wouldn't you take an x-ray when you have just been told that he had been blocked for a full day AND that WE suspected stones again? Stempy had already had TWO prior episodes WITH HER. This is a MAJOR FAILURE on her part. She must have had an aversion to using her x-ray machine - was it outdated? Looking back on his care, we believe she purposely avoided using her x-ray machine multiple times - when any other vet would have AT LEAST recommended an x-ray! VIOLATION? We believe so. How could the Texas Vet Board just dismiss this case?.
ONLY TWO WEEKS LATER, Stempy again experienced a urethral obstruction from most likely the SAME STONE. FROM MOST LIKELY THE SAME STONE THAT FIRST OBSTRUCTED HIM BACK IN MARCH 2005! (Calcium Oxalate stones do NOT dissolve or just disappear - MAJOR FAILURE BY DR. THOMAS - INEXCUSABLE!) She AGAIN failed to take radiographs to confirm diagnosis, location, and amount. She FAILED to properly wash the stone back to the bladder and tried jamming the catheter in to push the stone back to the bladder. She stated in his records that she was unable to collect a urine specimen. She sent Stempy home wearing a catheter and scheduled a cystotomy for the coming week.
How would she PASS a catheter and NOT be able to obtain a urine specimen? In fact, how did she relieve the distended bladder caused by the obstruction and yet NOT be able to obtain a urine specimen? As we now know, she had LODGED the catheter to the stone, so much so that she told us the she was unable to remove the catheter. So this begs the question: How did she relieve the distended bladder? There was no cystocentesis done. Did she damage his urethra with the very forceful - and unsuccessful - catheterization? The FAILURE to x-ray on this day is OUTRAGEOUS. Yet, the Texas Vet Board looks the other way.
Dr. Thomas ONLY had permission to perform a cystotomy - nothing else. She did NOT perform a cystotomy. She had lodged the catheter to the stone with the forceful catheterization she had performed. She was unable to remove the catheter. She told us that Stempy, himself, removed the catheter, although this is not what she wrote in his records.She performed an unauthorized procedure which she said was a perineal urethrostomy. This is not the procedure she performed, as admitted by the board. SO SHE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT SURGERY SHE PERFORMED? WAS SHE JUST MAKING STUFF UP AS SHE WENT ALONG? Her own vet tech stated she had NEVER performed that type of surgery before. She cut our little boy from his anus to his scrotum - a NINE cm incision - and NO NEW permanent or temporary opening was made - as would be expected with a urethrotomy or a urethrostomy. Remember - we had ONLY authorized a cystotomy. THAT'S IT. NOTHING ELSE. As previously mentioned, three days before this unauthorized surgery, Dr. Thomas had failed to wash the stone back to the bladder and had instead lodged the catheter to the stone. She would have known this if she would have taken a radiograph three days earlier when he was brought in. Instead, Stempy was either still obstructed for those three days or she had damaged his urethra and/or bladder when she attempted the forceful catheterization. Read this link on urethral obstruction and this link on canine retrograde urohydropropulsion: a standard of care again. Instead of referring us to a specialist, Dr. Thomas tried to fix her own screwup. If Stempy was in an emergency situation the day of surgery, then SHE is the one who put him there with her FAILURES three days earlier. INEXCUSABLE. Are these not violations? COME ON!!
Stempy was in extreme pain post surgery. We took him back to her EVERY DAY post surgery. Stempy was not eating and was only dribbling urine. She never properly examined him. She just kept changing his pain medicine. Then she gave us a tranquilizer with no pain killing abilities (Acepromazine) and led us to believe it was yet another pain killer. This tranquilizer lowers the seizure threshold and is not recommended for brachycephalic breeds.
Two days post surgery, Dr. Thomas’ clinic DENIED care to Stempy when his condition was deteriorating. The clinic stated that Stempy would be IN PAIN for 2 or 3 more days and then he would be fine and NOT to bring him in - YET they had just taken him completely OFF of painkillers! How INHUMANE is THAT? Violation? Evidently not in Texas.
The very next morning, three days post surgery….Stempy passed away. He was found unconscious and lifeless on his pillow. We rushed him to this vet to no avail.
It is our contention that Stempy passed away because of that unauthorized “surgery” that Dr. Thomas had NEVER performed before that would have NEVER have been needed had Dr. Thomas taken radiographs as needed and properly diagnosed and treated his condition. There is NO DOUBT in our minds that Dr. Thomas is 100% responsible for Stempy’s preventable death. Her attitude and failure to properly care for him those 3 days after his unauthorized surgery - to the point that the clinic DENIED Stempy care the night before he died - is deeply disturbing. Did she WANT Stempy to die?
She butchered our little boy!
(**NOTE: Dr. Thomas never recommended or performed any blood tests prior to ANY of the surgical procedures she performed. Check the Records.)

Stempy was an AKC champion-sired
male Shih Tzu. He was only 8 years old. He was truly a once in a lifetime dog.
In our opinion, he had about half
of his life taken away from him due
to the negligent and substandard
care he received at the hands
of his vet. Unfortunately,
Stempy's veterinarian was:
ANN K. THOMAS, DVM
Rodeo Dr. Veterinary Hospital
In our opinion,
we think the DVM means:
Be sure to click the page links at the top of the page to learn all about the veterinary negligence that Stempy endured for 2 years because we were all-trusting of this vet. If only we had researched two years prior.....
You MUST do your research NOW
BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!
No matter how great you "think" your vet may be, do not leave it to chance!NEVER BLINDLY
There is no 2nd chance for Stempy!
We miss you, little boy!
We will NOT let you die in vain!
TRUST YOUR VET!
