N.J. veterinarian’s license suspended after deaths of 3 dogs


A Newark veterinarian charged with animal cruelty after the deaths of three dogs has had his licensed suspended temporarily, state officials said Wednesday.

Honor Seth Yablon, who owns the Newark Veterinary Hospital on Wilson Avenue, was charged in April with animalty, offering a diseased cruel animal for sale and theft by deception.

The New Jersey Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners temporarily suspended Yablon’s license based on allegations he provided inadequate treatment that resulted in deaths of pets, acting Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin said in a statement on Wednesday.
