A woman has been banned from keeping animals for seven years after subjecting a dog to "horrendous" levels of neglect.
Brenda Bateman, from Pembroke Dock, admitted two animal welfare offences at Haverfordwest Magistrates' Court.
Magistrates heard she failed to seek veterinary care for the collie-cross dog called Jess, who had a severe chronic skin condition and arthritis, causing the animal to suffer unnecessarily.
Bateman, 43, also admitted failing to trim the dog’s overgrown nails, which led to problems with the way she walked.
Jess was later put to sleep due to her health problems.
The seven-year ban cannot be appealed for a period of three and a half years.
In addition, Bateman was ordered to pay £300 in costs, a £220 fine and a £30 victim surcharge.
