Charges against a Fords Prairie Animal Clinic veterinarian accused of unprofessional conduct have been withdrawn as part of a stipulation agreement, the state Department of Health announced last month.
The charges were initially filed on May 25 and accused veterinarian Robert R. Remund of failing to prescribe sufficient pain medications and preoperative antibiotics to a cat he performed a bilateral ear resection surgery on. He was additionally accused of failure to maintain adequate record-keeping due to “illegible, insufficient chart notes,” according to documents.
While he did not admit guilt, Remund signed a stipulation agreement on Dec. 1 requiring him to pay a $500 fine and complete six hours of training in feline pain management and record keeping within the next six months.
The state Veterinary Board accepted the signed stipulation agreement and formally withdrew the charges against Remund.
Remund’s license was placed on a 24-month probation in March 2017 after the DOH alleged that he practiced below the standard of care for 13 separate animal patients between July 2011 and May 2014.
He was also accused of providing veterinary drugs for human use and for keeping controlled substances on his desk and required to undergo controlled substances training.
Prior to that, the DOH required Remund to undergo training after he allegedly allowed a non-credentialed veterinary assistant to provide care between April 2009 and February 2010.
According to DOH records, Remund’s license is currently active and set to expire in August 2022.
His veterinary license was first issued in June 1979.
