Vet admits losing sick dog

LITTLETON, Colorado – A Jefferson County veterinarian says he’s sorry, but he lost a sick dog in his care.

Dr. Taka Kitashima of the Ken Caryl Veterinary Hospital in Littleton was caring for a mixed-breed dog named Casey last week. The 80-year-old vet brought Casey to his home to watch him overnight, and Casey ran away from the vet’s backyard.

Owner Cindy Davis says she’s distraught. She says she has posted Casey’s picture online hoping someone sees the 80-pound pup.

Kitashima tells KCNC-TV in Denver that he looked for the dog for two hours and is very sorry.
