The disturbing video went viral, showing the men performing surgery without a veterinarian license. Tragically, the dog did not survive and died with two unborn puppies inside of her. According to NbcNews, the video was performed the C-section in the living room of their home.

Frankie Huertas Rivera, 33, could be seen turning the dog named Lyla onto her back. Riviera was allegedly paid to perform the operation by the owner, Larry Colon who can be seen in the video assisting in the operation.

The dog could be seen shaking and squirming in pain indicating she had not been properly administered anesthesia. At the end of the surgery, Rivera wipes the newly born puppies with a cloth; two puppies reportedly died. The mother dog had later been taken to a veterinarian, but she was dead on arrival. The doctor at the animal hospital said she suspected Lyla died of septic shock due to contamination from the unlicensed procedure.

The surviving puppies were to be taken to the vet in order that their health be assessed. No further information on their condition has been shared.

After authorities were able to track down Rivera, Colon claimed Riviera said he was a veterinarian. Both men face animal cruelty charges and practicing without a license. The video was reportedly filmed by Colon’s teenage daughter.
