– An unlicensed veterinarian performed a C-section on a dog
– The dog died from the procedure.
– The dog is owned by a man who contacted the unlicensed veterinarian because he wanted to save…
According to the reports from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, the dog owner, Larry Colon, paid an unlicensed veterinarian named Frankie Huertas Rivera to perform the C-section on their doggo named Lyla. The daughter of Colon was the one who filmed it and put it on TikTok. An animal cruelty investigator was informed of the video by the people who were disturbed when the daughter of Colon posted it. In the video, the dog was visibly in pain as the unlicensed man took her puppies out from her tummy.
It is unclear what happened to the dog after but Colon still took it to an animal hospital and was told it was dead on arrival. It is believed that the dog died of septic shock because of the contamination via the unlicensed C-section. There were two more unborn puppies inside Lyla, both of which also died. It is unclear where the pups of Lyla are now.
Colon said in his defense that Rivera claimed to be a veterinarian. Colon then paid the man $650. Staff at the animal hospital claimed that Colon told them the C-section was performed by a friend of a friend who is unlicensed and that he was trying to save money that is why he wanted the procedure to be done at their house.
Colon and Rivera are facing charges of animal cruelty. Rivera has an additional charge regarding the unlicensed veterinary practice.
