September 7, 2011

CELINA — An area veterinarian gave a dog at the center of a civil court case a “clean bill of health” Tuesday after giving the animal a routine check-up.
Attorneys on both sides of an ownership battle of the dog agreed to allow an inspection of health of the animal and an update of shots at the Celina Animal Hospital.
Craig Miesse, the veterinarian inspecting the dog, determined that the male dog was in good health and was still intact, which maintained a temporary restraining order through Auglaize County Municipal Court against the animal being neutered.
