It took the Wolford family a long time to nurse their German Shephard Mona back to health after she was hit by a car.
"We took her to doctor Amy's, we had her there for one night," said Cindy Wolford.
Veterinarian Amy Gentsch opreated on Mona's leg at Doctor Amy's Animal Hospital. Then Mona's owner, Kevin Wolford, got a phone call the next day saying to come get Mona. She's ready to go home.
"She had drainage tubes coming out of her, it was just terrible," said Cindy Wolford.
Mona's tube on her leg wasn't working days later. She was in too much pain to move.
"When her leg started swelling and we were going to lose her, we couldnt get ahold of them," said Wolford.
The assistant at Amy's told them the Gentsch's went on vacation.
The Lee County Sheriffs Office says this is just one of a dozen coses. The most serious charge, Amy Gentsch let her husband Eugene operate on animals without a license. But there have been plenty of complaints about bad billing practices and bad care. Both were arrested and taken to jail.
Amy's is also denying every charge.
