Intoxicated veterinarian fired

June 9, 2010

Veterinarian Robert Maier has been fired from the VCA Shadeland Animal Hospital in Indianapolis after a dog owner called police to report the vet was drunk on the job and about to perform surgery on a dog. Police say Maier exceeded the legal limit on a portable breath test. Maier cooperated when they ordered him off the property, police say. He has worked at the clinic for two years.
