When he examines his last patient today, Dr. Dean Aberman will be doing more than simply ending his veterinary career of 32 years. He will be leaving an empty space in the lives of thousands of clients who have come to count on him as one of those few, reassuring constants. Aberman, 60, has been treating animals at Los Angeles Central Animal Hospital just north of downtown near Cypress Park since 1968, and his patient list surprises even him.

The good news is that after more than a year with only one veterinarian to care for the 74,000 animals that come through Los Angeles shelters each year, the Animal Regulation Department hired a second vet last week. The bad news is that he quit the next day. "He was really not here long enough for me to get used to," said Dena Mangiamele, the department's lone vet. "What are you going to do?" Mangiamele said that Grover H.

Julie Ann Ryan Johnson is used to coming to the rescue. And that's just what Orange County's troubled animal shelter needs from the newly appointed director of Animal Care Services. As a child in San Juan Capistrano, Johnson often surprised her parents with strays she rescued from the street, nursing them back to health and begging to keep them as pets. By age 11, she was well on her way to fulfilling her life's ambition and passion.

Putting the ghost of Pal the Pug to rest, at least for now, a judge threw out the remainder of a lawsuit Thursday filed by a veterinarian against Los Angeles Department of Animal Services officers. The dog, who belonged to an Encino resident, was found, barely alive, in April 1997, his skin torn off. Dr. Melvyn Richkind said the dog had been skinned alive by someone with a knife, but animal services officers said he had been attacked by a coyote. Pal's death caused an uproar across Los Angeles.

Richard Shapiro, chairman of the California Horse Racing Board, has ordered an independent review of an incident last summer at Del Mar involving a veterinarian and the Eclipse Award-winning mare Intercontinental. Scott Chaney, a steward at Santa Anita, will conduct the review of veterinarian Amy Lee Nevens, who falsified a bleeder medication report for Intercontinental last Sept. 3, the day the Danehill mare won the Palomar Breeders' Cup Handicap as the 3-10 favorite.

It wasn't a requirement of the job, but when Dena Mangiamele was hired as a veterinarian for the Los Angeles Animal Regulation Department, it helped that she is a former triathlete and an avid runner. As it turned out, she had to rely on her long-distance stamina when she became the only vet in a department that last year impounded 74,000 dogs, cats, goats, chickens, ducks and a menagerie of other critters.

Cats squirmed and growled in pain as they were neutered because they were not properly anesthetized. The abdominal organs of the Lopez family dog were reportedly pulled out during one unorthodox spaying, and the pet died. The Chavez's German shepherd, Spike, appeared to have been strangled by an inept attendant before surgery even began.

Thank you for printing the article about Dr. George Shaw of Sun Valley, a major service for every thinking pet owner and anyone who has livestock. In 1986 I began taking my dogs to him for their shots, and having him care for my livestock. During one year he misdiagnosed my livestock twice (concerning pregnancy and birthing) with no serious outcome, but in September of 1987 his judgment killed my Chihuahua. The next day George Shaw let me know I owed him $30 for the "care" he had given my dog. He had the cheapest rates in the valley.
