Authorities in Tampa have arrested a 31-year-old woman is facing five-years in prison for animal cruelty charges after she allegedly performed a c-section on a dog with a 'steak knife', no anesthesia and then used glue to close the amateur incision.

The Mastiff called Nadia died soon after and now Candace Patricia Hauser is facing a felony charge for removing the last two of the dogs 13 puppies on March 4 even though there was a veterinarian nearby.

Investigators arrested Hauser on March 5 when the dog's owner brought her to Veterinary Healthcare Associates in Winter Haven telling them she believed the animal was dying - when in fact Nadia was already dead....

As long as she did this in good faith, she did nothing wrong. IMHO

She must have had some knowledge of what she was doing...

“Hell is too good for this meth-head.”

Why do you call her that?

“fter she used glue to patch up the animals wound”

The “glue” she used was super glue, commonly used for surgery.

It doesn’t matter if there’s a vet nearby or not. It’s hard to find a vet who will see your dying dog if you don’t have gobs of money to put down and right now!

They can turn your dog away, resulting in death of the animal, but if YOU try to save it and fail, YOU violated the law? Something’s wrong with that.

I wonder if she was able to save the pups? Guess I better go look at the article.

A C-section on her friend's dog? TWO morons here: dumb-sh** Hauser AND her "friend."

Someone ought to perform a C-section on HER and see how she likes it. What a numb nuts. THIRTY-ONE?? She is DOOMED.

C sections are performed on women all them time.

Shock probably killed the dog.

Maybe YOU need a C-section yourself, on your brain. I do mean that in the nicest way.
Why "must" she have had "some knowledge"? If she had ANY knowledge about dogs, she would NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EVER have done that.

I hope there is a very special place in hell for fools like her. What IS scary is that she is 31 years old. IMAGINE how her "stupid" will grow as she ages. Yikes. THAT is VERY scary.

CRUELTY TO ANIMALS!!!!

Not without anesthetic on the kitchen table.

Prior to modern surgery techniques, many women did not survive C-sections. Often, the goal was just to save the baby because the mother was already beyond help.

The dog must have been close to death because no dog I've ever seen would let one cut down the midline unless there was anesthesia.

Nor with steak knives.

Vets don’t work for free. If she did this out of cruelty then she should pay. If she was trying to help the dog then I’d give her the benefit of the doubt.

Bull.

She sacrificed the bitch to get another couple/four grand for the last two pups.

Bet on it.

C sections are NOT performed on women all the time. I don't know of ONE woman, friend, co-worker, acquaintance, NONE who had a C-section. Surgery is NOT common for anyone except Hollywood people who have to stay "beautiful." Pregnant women get C sections when there really isn't other choices.

Surgery Going "under the knife" is dangerous for anyone. I don't care if it's a cataract or a C section, it's not done on women ALL THE TIME.

But, maybe SHOCK did kill the dog. The poor dog. It's better off dead than with a maniac owner like Ms. Stupid.

Imagine the ROMANS developing the Caesarean section. Ave Kaiser!! From the Internet: Caesarean section is a surgical procedure in which one or more incisions are made through a mother's abdomen (laparotomy) and uterus (hysterotomy) to deliver one or more babies, or, rarely, to remove a dead fetus. A late-term abortion using Caesarean section procedures is termed a hysterotomy abortion and is very rarely performed. The first modern Caesarean section was performed by German gynecologist Ferdinand Adolf Kehrer in 1881.

People shouldn't have dogs, or ANY pets, unless they are FULLY prepared to do what is necessary to keep their animals healthy, safe, clean and up-to-date on their shots.

I think this moron AND her friend should be euthanized...

No she didn’t “no anesthesia” so you can imagine what that dog went through feeling its gut being ripped open. I say “ripped” because they say the wound was jagged, torn because she used a steak knife. To me this sounds like she got off torturing the dog, and her smile in the photo doesn’t help matters.

They are performed every day in every hospital across this country.

Of course surgery is dangerous. Never said it wasn’t, turn off the emotion and you might be able to think more clearly.

All pups for purebreds are expensive. If that was the case the owner would probably have paid a vet since the mother is worth a lot.

Crazy eyes. Behaving like a meth head, anything for money, kill the dog to get the last few puppies to sell. But, if she’s a meth head she’s not been one for long, so the crazy was a pre-existing condition.

Yes, but I suspect this breeder doesn’t have any dogs with a good line. Reputable breeders don’t - well, they don’t do anything we read about in this story.

You don’t know “one woman” who has had a c section? You are completely delusional unless you just don’t know any women. Completely out in left field.

Work out a payment plan, or most vets offer financing. There are charitable groups all around set up to prevent poor peoples’ pets from dying due to inability to afford treatment. Plenty of options.

I have to say, it's a little disturbing you so blithely relate a human surgical procedure to butchery of a dog.

$500?

Even backyard breeders get $1000 a pup.

That’s 13 grand.

She can just buy another bitch and keep on going.

This crap happens all the time with WV greeders who pump out Bulldog [and other Brachycephalic breed] pups who are rarely born *without* C-sections.

Although vets tend to be greedy, money-first jerks nowadays and do refuse service to people without a fortune in their pocket, very few if any will turn away a whelping dog in distress.

You’d have to really hunt to find one *that* cold blooded.

A dog with ‘stuck’ pups is in less danger than the stuck pups are, especially in a dog of that size.

I would bet she had time to get to a vet if the bitch was her great concern.

If the dog was breeching, you would think she’d have noticed distress long before the point she starting gutting the poor thing.

A stuck pup isn’t near as dire as a breeched calf or foal.

Gone are the days when vets cared for animals above all else.

My gramma had the vet come out in the middle of the night to deliver calves and he always told her to pay him the next time she saw him.

The heart has gone out of that profession.

I wonder if the druggies, white trash and gangsta-wannabes have started breeding mastiffs for aggression like they did with pit bulls? Almost a separate breed by now, the bad rep comes from there. An unstable, highly aggressive mastiff inbred for generations to fix those traits would be a terror.

Surrender the dog to someone who wouldn’t butcher it. If she can’t afford a dog, she has no place owning one, much less a whole litter. If she can’t afford a vet for one dog, how is she going to care for a whole litter? The dog’s owner and the butcher are not the victims here.

Yes.

They are also being used, along with other Mastiff variants, in breeding bigger, meaner pit dogs.

No, I don't. Why WOULD I know any women with C sections? C sections are NOT normal, average surgery. I am neither a doctor or a nurse, but I am a woman, an older one. Maybe the YOUNG mothers today know tons of women who had C sections, but I doubt it. I taught 18-30 year old students, half of them women, for almost 30 years. Retired last year. C sections were NOT a "hot" topic that today's women discussed at any length.

Those women didn't GET them either. Young women today are VERY savvy about those things.

More to the point why do YOU know so many? Are you a doctor or nurse? That is SERIOUS surgery. Why would ANYONE know people BECAUSE they had C sections? It makes no sense.

While there are a few no kill shelters its hard to find one that will take a pregnant dog. Especially for this breed.

Take it to the Humane Society, ASPCA or Peta and it will probably be euthanized before she’s out of the parking lot.

She chose poorly, there’s no doubt but thats why we have juries.

You need a new vet, then.

Do you not have dog health insurance?

I get 90% of the cost refunded.
