What the heck?! It is ILLEGAL to ABUSE an Animal in the form of NEGLECT. What don't you understand about that? Haven't you ever watched animal planet on cable? lol They have a show where cops go about busting criminals that abuse animals who haven't been fed or properly cared for. If you can't take care of your animal by taking it to the vet at least take it to the humane society where they can properly care for him. They might offer free or discounted services. Look ask the police if you don't believe me. You must really hate your dog huh?
