In Miami, Florida, two fake vets botched the neutering surgery on a 12-year-old American bulldog named Royalty. Police report the the dog’s owner, Omarnestor Delrio, made an appointment to have his dog’s procedure at the so-called clinic, which has turned out to be a fraud.

According to the Miami Herald, Sophia Gonzalez, 40,  was arrested on Thursday and charged with practicing veterinary medicine without a license and animal cruelty. Her boyfriend, Jose Alvarez-Marrero, 58, is currently on the run, but faces similar charges when apprehended. The couple transformed their apartment in Hialeah into a veterinary clinic, and on April 23, Delrio took Royalty for surgery. The dog’s owner had been at the fake clinic on other occasions.

During the neutering procedure, Royalty had bled too much, and shortly after surgery he became swollen at the site of his incision. A few days later the dog refused to eat or drink and was not recuperating. When brought back to the “clinic,” the dog was supposedly administered two injections of antibiotics, but to no avail. The clinic then placed Royalty on an unknown intravenous bag.

Two days later, Royalty was taken to Knowles Animal Clinic in Miami where Delrio was told that whatever procedure had been done on his dog was beyond “medical malpractice and pure animal cruelty.” Royalty died, as the result of “an unsterile surgical procedure” one week later.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Jose Alvarez-Marrero, is asked to contact the Hialeah Police Department at 305.687.2525 or call CrimeStoppers at 305.471.TIPS (8477).

    When they capture him, do the same procedure to him (exact same way), that he did to Royalty. Then, let him bleed out. Our jails are too good for scum like this and they need to be eradicated from our world. I know I sound harsh, but these evil creatures get a slap on the wrist and then continue their evil work again.

    I have a couple of real problems with this post – #1- Why would an owner get a 12 year old dog neutered??? That procedure should have been done years before – #2- These two hunks of maggot puke that pretended to be vets deserve the exact same as they gave Royalty – The Gonzalez c**t gets a hysterectomy w/a pocket knife performed by the trash collector – and the skank bag boyfriend, Jose A. Marrero, gets his nuts cut off with a wrench by a plumber – THAT would be justice. This is felony animal cruelty and the prosecutor best charge them as such.

      I agree with you 100% these two are criminals and I too, question having a 12 year old dog neutered. It’s too bad when the owner noticed there was something wrong, they didn’t take Royalty to a “real” vet, he might still be alive.

    Don’t turn this pos in to the police, just put a bullet in his head. Drive him out to a secluded area, make him cut off his own nuts, then put the barrel to his forehead and pull the trigger. No one will miss him and no one will care.

    This is horrible…..I hope both of these monsters get jailed, fined and banned from ever owning or living with a pet.
