DENVER (AP) – Police say four people have come forward regarding a Colorado veterinarian who is accused of providing care to a man who later had to have three toes amputated.
KCNC-TV in Denver reports (
http://cbsloc.al/14IECPH) that the Colorado Medical Board on Thursday issued a cease and desist order for the unlicensed practice of medicine to Fran Freemyer.
Greeley police say Freemyer was ticketed last week with practicing medicine on humans without a license, after a man said his foot worsened after the vet gave him ointment for a foot ailment.
Freemyer has said he was treating a dog for skin cancer, and the dog’s owner gave some of the medicine to a neighbor without Freemyer’s knowledge.
Greeley police say four other people have contacted detectives regarding Freemyer and treatment they received.
