A veterinary student is firmly in the dog house with his university after stitching the words ‘I love you’ into a pooch he was doing surgery on.

Rather than declaring his love of the animal he was working on, the student was trying to woo his girlfriend, and posted the image to her Facebook timeline.

Not only did the picture incur the wrath of her many Facebook friends, but the Polish student is now facing disciplinary action from the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn where he is in his fourth year.

Rather than just deleting the photo and praying the internet would forget about it, the student’s girlfriend, who reportedly sits on the student council, attempted to defend his actions.

‘What’s so unethical about it? He’s learnt to sew in order to help and is just showing his skill,’ she said.

As skilful as it may be to use a dog’s flesh like a post-it note, the head of veterinary studies at the university, Andrzej Koncicki, has decided to launch an investigation into the incident.

He said: ‘One of the first points of the Vets’ Code of Ethics is that a vet practising his profession of public trust needs professional conduct and good morals.’

Mr Koncicki added that to stitch words into a dog ‘does seem immoral and unethical behaviour from a student of veterinary science’, and expressed concern that the professional who would have been overseeing the operation did not act to stop the student.
