#TheList Donna Prince, born c. 1997, and then partner Kelvin ‘Kenzie; Andrews, born 1994, of Warburton Rd, Thornhill, Southampton SO19 – left their dog suffering with a skin condition which saw him lose most of his hair and become covered in scabs.
Prince and Andrews pleaded guilty to one count of causing unnecessary suffering, between June 13 and June 15, 2016.
The court heard the pair failed to get Tyson the necessary veterinary care for a skin disease which left him itching so badly he scratched off most his hair.
RSPCA Inspector Tina Ward said: “We first became involved in January 2016 and gave advice to seek vet treatment for his skin condition. They did initially but didn’t continue it.
“Pet owners need to realise that they have a responsibility to care for their animals. That includes ensuring any health issues are dealt with promptly to avoid distress to animals in their care.”
Sentence: £50 in court costs plus £30 victim surcharge; deprivation order for dog Tyson; No ban.
