State regulators have suspended the license of a south suburban veterinarian who is accused of failing to report dogs involved in fights.

Dr. Gary Friederich is the owner of the Park Forest Animal Hospital. He's also accused of issuing rabies certificates to non-vaccinated animals and not keeping inventory of controlled drugs.

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation accuses Dr. Friederich of "professional incompetence" in a 21-count complaint.
