Refusing to take dog to the vet leaves woman in court

A WOMAN who allegedly failed to provide veterinarian treatment to her two dogs on five occasions has faced a Maryborough court.

Maryborough's Bianca Jayne Wogandt did not enter any plea when she appeared in the Maryborough Magistrates Court during a brief appearance yesterday.

The RSPCA alleges Ms Wogandt failed to have a large growth containing a large amount of pus removed from the right side of her Siberian Husky, Kiarah's face.

Ms Wogandt also allegedly did not provide any treatment for Kiarah's hind end lameness nor for an ear infection.

The charges read to the court also allege Ms Wogandt did not treat her German Shepherd, Kovu, for an ear infection nor for lameness in his hind quarters.

It is alleged neglect is said to have occurred between January 1 and January 22 this year.

Under the Animal Care and Protection Act, owners must provide their pets with veterinarian treatment when required.

Magistrate John Smith read the details of the charges to the court while Ms Wogandt looked on.

She was wearing shorts and thongs for her court appearance, which lasted no longer than ten minutes.

Ms Wogandt did not enter a plea in the case but instead asked for the matter to be adjourned so she could seek legal advice.

She said the German Shepherd had been returned to her and that she had wanted to bring the dog to court as a "support person".

Mr Smith adjourned the matter to May 4.
