CLINTON — A detailed Facebook post claiming Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital staff are responsible for the death of Athena, a 13-month-old English mastiff, is drawing a large number of views.
But hospital staffers say the post being shared on social media is “full of misinformation” and they can’t wait to be able to tell their side of the story.
The post, under the name of Athena Justice, tells how Summer Thatcher, of Salt Lake City, took her dog to the Clinton veterinary hospital April 9 for what was supposed to be a procedure to spay her animal.
“Eight hours later Athena was dead, drained of blood and missing an organ (spleen). We are seeking justice for Athena’s death,” reads a post on Thatcher’s Facebook page.
