CALLAWAY, Fla. (AP) -- Deputies say a Panama City woman's arm has been amputated after a vicious pit bull attack at the veterinary clinic where she worked.

Authorities said two staffers walked into the kennel and saw the dog violently shaking 43-year-old Laura Miller's arm Thursday. They kicked and hit the dog until it released its grip and they were able to lock the animal back in its cage.

A hospital spokeswoman says Miller is in guarded condition in an intensive care unit.

Karen Collier, owner of Parkway Animal Hospital, told authorities the dog had been staying at the kennel for almost two weeks and was never aggressive during previous visits.

Animal Control took possession of the dog.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
