Idiotic Lorna Farrar fed her dogs “a pasta diet” causing them to become extremely malnourished. Sadly Staffy Panda had to be put to sleep after collapsing.

Lorna Farrar allowed her dogs, Staffies Panda and Budz, to become malnourished, underweight and in generally poor condition with their coats covered in faeces and urine.

When the mother-of-two took the dogs to the vet Panda collapsed and had to be put down. Budz was given food and water and immediately began eating. Six weeks later he had put on four times his body weight after being put on a normal diet.

The court heard that the examining vet had never seen a dog as emaciated as Panda whom she believed had been starved for three weeks .

There was no underlying medical condition that could have caused the dogs to become emaciated.

Farrar’s lawyer told the court her client was “well-intentioned” but “incompetent” when it came to care.

A post-mortem examination of Panda revealed she had undigested penne in her stomach – because Farrar had been feeding the dogs a “pasta diet”.

Sentencing: Farrar was originally jailed for 18 weeks but this was reduced to a 12-month community order on appeal. Banned for life from keeping animals.
