BREAKING | Controversial St. Catharines vet closed up shop
It appears as though a controversial vet in St. Catharines has finally closed up shop.
Doctor Mahavir Rekhi first closed Skyway Animal Hospital when videos surfaced in 2016, showing him choking and hitting animals in his care.
The College of Veterinarians of Ontario ended up suspending his licence for 10 months, however that sentence was reduced and he re-opened the clinic on Welland Ave. in February 2017.
The re-opening of the clinic sparked angry protests, and vandalism to the building.
Rekhi also faced criminal charges, but those were dropped in November of 2017 when a judge was told the SPCA had launched an investigation into the vet without a formal complaint.
Today the shelves are bare, the hours of operation have been scraped off the door, and the office is listened as 'permanently closed' on Google.
The building is for sale for $899,900 saying it's an excellent investment opportunity featuring a commercial building and land for sale.
