A HOLMFIRTH vet who was struck off after he lied about carrying out surgery to remove bladder stones from a dog, is to seek permission for a further appeal at the Privy Council on Thursday .
Alan Roderick Tait, of Huddersfield Road, Thongsbridge, was originally struck off in November last year.
He lodged an appeal at the Privy Council which allowed him to continue practising.
In July this year the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons successfully applied for the appeal to be dismissed for "non-prosecution".
Tait was found guilty of disgraceful conduct by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons professional conduct committee sitting in London at the end of a four-day hearing.
The hearing heard details of allegations concerning the vet's treatment of two dogs.
They went on to give the direction that Mr Tait's name be removed from the professional register.
