Found an injured dog in my garage and took it to Bill Baber. He doctored the dog, sewing up exposed wounds, apparently from a fight. He didn't charge for the service. We later found the owner of the dog. \r

Don't go to this vet and, whatever you do, NEVER leave your animal alone with this complete idiot.

Bill Baber, the Tenn. vet., is an idiot. I wouldn't let this moron treat a cockroach much less a dog. Actually, this boob is a cockroach. I wonder how long it takes this Hillbilly to brush his tooth? Obviously, not long because his breath is enough to knock a buzzard off a sh*t wagon.

Dr. Baber has been my Vet for the last 9 years and would recommend him to anyone. He has treated both a small breed and a large breed. He is very straight forward and doesn't sugar coat the issue. He is also extremely reasonable.

I called Dr. Barber earlier this afternoon. He answered and was very nice. I asked him about my dog and what I needed to do along with a price total for work. He was very kind and told me that he could see me and my dog this afternoon with a decent price. When I arrived I was surprised to see him without front desk but I work a Dental Office so I know how you can run short handed sometimes. He helped me carry my dog in and examined him. He was very informative and helpful for me to understand what was going on with his leg. He helped me carry him back out to the car and told me to call if I needed anything. I am definitely going back to him with all of my other animals.

Pros: Listens, Patient, Price Satisfactory, Knowledgeable

Cons: What happened in 2007 with him losing his license.

I'm surprised a year after this incident that J.H. feels the need to say people are ignorant by defending Baber's actions (I will not refer to him as DR).. I sure hope that when he put your beloved pet to sleep that you stood there and watched what he did... and if you did and if he did it properly then your dog was luckier than the hundreds that were trusted to be humanely put to sleep.Don't get up on any pedestal with the pet lovers out here because this Vet should never be allowed to practice again and giving him back any power was wrong!I sure hope someone is keeping a close eye on him.

It's amazing how people can make such bold, ignorant statements about a man whom they don't know. I've been a client of Dr. Baber for 10 yrs. I farm for a living and had a blue heeler that rode with me 350 days a year. She became ill when she was 10 yrs. old and was suffering. I called Doc to have her put to sleep. He did it for me, free of charge, wrapped her up in her favorite blanket, and closed the office so that he could ride out to the farm with me and help me bury her. I have since gotten another heeler and Dr. Baber will be my vet as long as he is practicing.

Anyone even considering using this vet should check out his methods of euthanizing shelter animals.

I would give him ZERO stars but there's no option for that. Put his name in a search and watch the video. I wouldn't take rock to this man for treatment.

November 7, 2007, the Tennessee Board of Veterinary Medicine was presented with evidence about the acts and conduct of the Respondent, William E. Baber violated the Board??s applicable laws and rules. In or around 2005 to 2007, the Respondent engaged in unprofessional, unethical, and incompetent conduct in the course of practicing veterinary medicine that reflects unfavorably on the profession of veterinary medicine by failing to euthanize animals in accordance with the methods prescribed by the Non-Livestock Humane Animal Death Act in Tenn. Code Ann. 44-17-303.
The Respondent used sodium pentobarbital to euthanize non-livestock animals, including cats and dogs without performing an intravenous, intraperitoneal, or intercardial injection in accordance with the law. Instead, the Respondent injected the non-livestock animals with sodium pentobarbital in the chest (not an intercardial injection) while they were not heavily sedated, anaesthetized or comatose. After the Respondent injected these non-livestock animals with sodium pentobarbital, Respondent then left the animals unattended until their deaths and did not ensure that a qualified person ensured the death of each animal before the animals were incinerated.
The Respondent also engaged in gross malpractice or a pattern of a continued or repeated malpractice, ignorance, negligence, incompetence, and dishonesty in the course of practicing
veterinary medicine by using sodium pentobarbital on non-livestock animals without weighing each animal to ensure that each animal received the correct dosage amount because underestimated or overestimated dosages could result in a prolonged or otherwise inhumane death. The Respondent also maintained false records about each non-livestock animal that was euthanized by indicating a specific weight for each animal, indicating that each animal had been weighed, when in fact each animal had not been weighed.
The Respondent??s acts and conduct are so severe that they pose such a threat to the health and welfare of the public that the mere filing of formal disciplinary charges will not deter the Respondent from continuing to engage in the aforementioned conduct, warranting the summary suspension of the Respondent??s license to engage in the practice of veterinary medicine (license number: 2123).
WHEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and pursuant to the authority granted under Tenn. Code Ann. 4-5-320(c) and 63-12-124, the Board hereby finds that the aforesaid conduct and activity of the Respondent requires imperative action in order to protect the public health, safety and welfare by summarily suspending the Respondent??s license to engage in the practice of veterinary medicine, (License Number: 2123).
The Board for Veterinary Medical Examiners hereby ORDERS the SUMMARY SUSPENSION of the Respondent??s license to engage in veterinary medicine (License Number: 2123). Upon receipt of this order, the Respondent shall cease and desist from engaging in the practice of veterinary medicine immediately.
