‘Cruel’ vet Ohene-Gyan due to be sentencedBy Jon Nurse

A Woosehill vet convicted of four counts of causing unnecessary suffering to animals is due to be sentenced today.
Awuah Ohene-Gyan was convicted in his absence after failing to attend a two-day trial at Reading Magistrates’ Court last month.
The charges related to three dogs and a cat treated between February and October last year when the animals were admitted to Woosehill Vets practice in Emmview Close.
During the trial the court heard the veterinary practice used dirty kennels, overcharged clients and failed to correctly treat animals, leaving one injured dog in a cage for 33 days.
The RSPCA inspector who brought the case against Ohene-Gyan said he had never seen such appalling care from a veterinary surgeon.
Following the trial, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons confirmed it is investigating Ohene-Gyan, however a spokesman said he is still allowed to practise as a vet.
Companies House declares that Woosehill Hospital4Pets, the company that operated Woosehill Vets and is owned by Ohene-Gyan, is in liquidation and the surgery is now closed.
