Matteo Guidicelli loses dog due to malpractice of attending Vet


Matteo Guidicelli is mourning the death of his pet Alfano, which he claimed was victim of vet malpractice in an animal clinic.

According to the report of ABS-CBN News, on Tuesday night, the “Dolce Amore” star posted a photo of his pet and the details of the pitbull’s death last March 7 at the Vets in Practice (VIP) Animal Hospital in Alabang “due to straight negligence and improper handling.”

He narrated that the dog was brought to the veterinarian by his caretakers Tibo and Amay for a “mere checkup” because of puss on thee animal’s elbow.

“He was attended to at 11:45 am and at 12:00 we got a call from Tibo saying that he wasn’t breathing. Confused, we all panicked and headed to VIP. We arrived there and it was too late, Alfano was declared dead at 12:05,” Guidicelli wrote in the caption.

According to the actor, the animal was brought by the hospital staff to surgery “without any consent” and that four men, including the vet, “barbarically pinned him down as the vet tried to aspirate puss out of his elbow.”

“My poor Alfano was trying to fight for his life but the four men won. He suffocated, his heart gave up and died. This all happened due to MISHANDLING a simple situation,” Guidicelli said.

“Let’s step back and think before we act. We don’t want this happening to any other loved one. We can’t have mistakes like this happen again to other pets,” he added.

On Wednesday, ABS-CBN News tried to get the side of VIP Animal Hospital but was told that the person in charge was on emergency leave.

Would like to share this to everyone — On March 7, 2016 I lost a best friend, Alfano due to straight negligence and improper handling. That morning his energy was perfect- just like any other day. Both his care takers (Tibo & Amay) brought him to Vets in Practice (VIP), Alabang where we was supposed to have gotten a mere checkup (he had puss on his elbow). He was attended to at 11:45am and at 12:00 we got a call from Tibo saying that he wasn’t breathing. Confused, we all panicked and headed to VIP. We arrived there and it was too late, Alfano was declared dead at 12:05. Here’s what exactly happened. As Alfano was attended to, Tibo & Amay were asked to leave because “sila na ang bahala,” said the VIP staff. They brought him to the surgery room without any consent, muzzled him, while 4 men including the vet barbarically pinned him down as the vet tried to aspirate puss out of his elbow. WITHOUT CONSENT. My poor Alfano, was trying to fight for his life but the four men won. He suffocated, his heart gave up and died. This all happened due to MISHANDLING a simple situation. Let’s step back and think before we act. We don’t want this happening to any other loved one. We can’t have mistakes like this happen again to other pets. #RIPalfano #VIP #VIPalabang #vetsinpractice

Another case of mishandling was Mariam Al-alawi‘s Facebook post who became viral in social media after she aired her frustration and aggravation on the malpractice of a veterinarian who performed the dental extraction operation she did not ask for. It was just supposed to be a teeth cleaning, but the careless veterinarian extracted more than 16 “milk teeth” leading to the death of the pity dog.
