Woman Fined For Letting Her Dog Suffer

A woman has been fined for letting her English bull terrier suffer with a severe skin condition for months because she could not afford the veterinarian bills. She pleaded guilty “to causing unnecessary suffering to an animal by failing to provide it with proper veterinary care.” She was fined and given a 12-month community order.

    I wonder why an inspector finally showed up at her house?

    I wonder where she could have gone for help with the vet bill?

    I wish the story was a bit more comprehensive.

    I can understand the lady couldnt afford to take the dog to the vet. But what does keeping the dog in a small cage in the kitchen have to do with the skin condition??

    Prolly kept in the cage so it didn’t bleed all over her house or tramsit the mites to the other animals.
    So they fine her when she can’t even afford vet care? real smart, that.

    Pet shelters offer low-cost vaccinations then, perhaps, they could also offer low-cost vet care/maintenance done by vet students. The purpose here is to help pet owners to help their pets. Everyone wins in the end.
