Alina O’Malley, 26, went through all the emotions in the space of a day. Last April, her American Bully, Arizona, a purebred dog, was about to give birth to a litter of 13 puppies. On the scans, eight healthy puppies are first observed. However, Arizona will have to give birth to 13 babies.
The risk was then felt by Alina O’Malley who, to avoid any complications during childbirth and for fear of seeing her dog weakened by labor, thought of a caesarean section. The owner of Arizona therefore turned to Easipetcare, a low-cost veterinary service.
” The only reason I took her to the vet was because I knew she was a big litter, and she would be too tired to deliver them naturally, and I would have to take her for a midterm caesarean section “says the 26-year-old young woman at Mirror.
But since that unfortunate decision, Alina and Arizona have lost everything. For everyday The Mirror, the Briton is angry with the veterinarian who took care of her dog and her puppies. She also indicates that she was not warned of the risk of a caesarean section and that she was not sent to other options.
Mistakes made by the veterinary clinic according to the owner
Alina O’Malley is fighting to get her truth heard in the media. She keeps claiming that a mistake was made by the vets. Alina O’Malley says she left her dog in the hands of the veterinary clinic to perform the cesarean section. The Briton later received a call from the vet telling her that her dog and her 13 puppies were fine. Happy, Alina O’Malley hastened to prepare the necessary for this large family.
But two hours later, Alina O’Malley received another call from the clinic telling her that the 13 puppies had died. While the veterinarian had given him a first explanation, the latter had changed his version when the young woman arrived, citing several reasons.
According to Alina O’Malley, several factors could have caused the death of her puppies and the clinic made a mistake. She points in particular to the fact that they were only two people to watch over the 13 puppies, not enough according to her.
” I would have understood the loss of a few puppies, but a whole litter makes me say that something has gone dramatically wrong, especially after that first phone call which said that all the puppies and my dog were in good health adds Alina O’Malley.

Today, the young woman criticizes the veterinarian for not having informed her about the risks of a cesarean section and her inability to have been able to answer her many questions before and after the operation. Not to mention the many advice from the veterinarian which turned out to be dangerous for the female dog after consulting other professionals.
” All the questions and concerns I had went unanswered after the operation and during the post-operative check-up. I had to pay to go to another vet the same day to have her checked again and ask all these questions to someone who could give me answers. “.
While she had planned to sell some of the purebred puppies in the hope of raising nearly 58,000 euros, this hospital director declares that she has lost everything:
” But it really isn’t about the money, it’s about 13 innocent lives, and my beautiful dog will never be the same again. She’s completely different since she got home, she doesn’t wag her tail anymore, she only paces, she cries and digs constantlylaments Alina O’Malley. My dog will never be the same again. I will definitely never be the same again “.
