Police arrested a dog owner in his 50s who wielded a weapon at the veterinarian and hospital staff in anger when his dog died during surgery.

According to the police, on July 28th, the Yangcheon Police Station in Seoul arrested a man (age 52) on charges of special injury and is investigating the man.

He is suspected of stabbing a veterinarian's arm with medical scissors in anger when his dog died while undergoing a surgical procedure for neutering at an animal hospital in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul, at 5:30 PM the previous day.

The man, who left the hospital about 30 minutes later, came back to the hospital drunk and hit the director of the hospital with a soju bottle and injured him. The victims, who suffered injuries to their arms and heads, were reportedly treated at a hospital but were not seriously injured. 

The police will decide whether to apply for an arrest warrant after investigating the exact circumstances of the incident against the man.

He obviously shouldn't have done that, but I'd be lying if I said I don't feel for him.

More than anything, what he did was wrong, but what about the veterinarian & the hospital? He could possibly sue them if there's a malpractice. Can the hospital confirm that, there's no medical malpractice? Neutering is a simple procedure (according to my vet) in comparison to spaying (for female) as they involve a little bit complicated procedure as neutering is only removing the testicles & sometimes the incision needs minor stitches. While, spaying can be high risk if the procedure done when the female pet is in heat due to possible bleeding. Most of the time, the veterinarian will give an advice first, on the possible outcome & risk if the owner wants to proceed with the surgery if the pets are in heat. So, can you confirm that the dog is being neutered instead of spayed? Please use the correct medical term to avoid any confusion.
