Several medications were stolen during an early morning robbery Oct. 8 at the Peace River Veterinary Clinic.

“Valuable veterinary medication and equipment were stolen,” says Cpl. Tammy Keibel, RCMP Media Relations Group.

“The medications stolen were for use in animals and are considered extremely dangerous for human use when not prescribed by a physician,” she says.

The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the Peace River Veterinary Clinic, Hannah Pope, warns that “some of the medications would most certainly be lethal if a human ingested one or two drops.”

Stolen medications include Diazepam, Torbugesic, Ketamine, Dormosedan, Rompun, T-61, and Acevet.

Some of the more unique equipment items that were stolen include a digital X-Ray machine computer with X-ray plate, an ultrasound machine with a digital screen with probe, a Nebulizer [an inhaler for a Horse], and dental equipment including drills with long shafts for a horse dentistry.

Dr. Pope says the items would not be very useful outside the veterinary world but were extremely valuable to her ability to provide the needed quality treatment to the animals under her care.

Peace River RCMP continue to investigate and are asking the public’s assistance for any information in relation to this incident or identifying those responsible for the crime.

Please contact Peace River RCMP at [780] 624-6611 or your local police.
