REPEAT OFFENDER ALERT - MICHIGAN
KALAMAZOO VETERINARIAN STEVEN GINSBERG'S LICENSE SUSPENDED FOR THE SECOND TIME IN FIVE YEARS BY THE MICHIGAN VETERINARY BOARD.
Found in violation of statutes of the Michigan Veterinary Practice Act. Surgical procedures on cats at Crestview Animal Hospital, Kalamazoo, constituted "negligence," "incompetence," and showed lack of "good moral character." In addition, Ginsberg "did not keep good records," and "blamed the pet owner" for what happened, according to the news report on Kalamazoo TV station Live 8, 24 hour news, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Because of his own actions, "Doctor" Steven Ginsberg has once again proven himself to be a major problem for Michigan pets and their guardians since 1999. His treatment of Lucy the Dog and subsequent disciplinary action by the state board in 2001 first exposed him forever to the public eye, thanks to people who could not remain silent about what they had seen and what witnesses and documented proof confirmed to the state attorney general about Ginsberg's repeated negligent, incompetent treatment of animals.
