DAMASCUS, Md. (WJZ) —There are all kinds of lawsuits, but this may be the first to win the right to massage horses.  Although as Alex DeMetrick reports, victory comes with a rub…

“I’ve spent my life with horses.  It was the perfect job for me, and to be told I can’t do that anymore for no good reason, was horrendous,” said Clemens…

“The judge held this was a complete abuse of authority.  The chiropractic board had no authority to regulate animal massage at all,” said Paul Sherman, Clemens lawyer…

Mercedes Clements still gives people massages.
Although Maryland’s State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners originally opposed Mercedes Clements, it has since ruled it’s ok for non-vets to massage animals.
