There is public outrage over a video showing a dog allegedly being abused at a grooming facility in Riverview, N.B.

The Facebook video shows a groomer pulling and pushing, and even kneeing a defenseless dog that has been restrained and leashed to the grooming table.

The video was posted over the weekend and now people are calling for the grooming facility to be shut down and the owner to be charged.

She said she took her dog there as recently as last week.

The groomer leases space from the the Riverview Animal Hospital, which released a statement on its Facebook page on Sunday saying they are in no way affiliated with the groomer.

"Mistreatment of any kind toward animals can not be tolerated and we are both shocked and disappointed by these alleged incidents just as many of you are," it read.

A representative from the hospital also confirmed with Global News that it is involved in an investigation being conducted by the New Brunswick SPCA.

No one from the SPCA was available for comment.

Brenda Dumesnil is the manager of Brenda's Academy of Professional Dog Grooming in Moncton, and one of the people who saw the video.

"It was shocking, it was upsetting. The dogs are already sometimes scared when they come in so to treat a dog like that is totally unprofessional," said Dumesnil.

She said there needs to be a regulatory body for dog groomers in Canada.

"It should be like the hair dressing association where you know you need a licence, but with dog grooming there is nothing, there is no regulation," Dumesnil said.

RCMP said a formal criminal complaint alleging this was a case of animal abuse has not been filed.
