    A cruel dad and son have been spared jail after one of their dogs was found whining in agony while being eaten alive by maggots.

    Van Huynh, 52, and his son, Hai, 22, were banned from keeping animals for life after admitting eight neglect offences against three dogs which all had to be put down.

    A court heard a neighbour contacted the RSPCA last August after hearing a ‘high-pitched whining’ which was coming from the garden of their home in St Ann’s, Nottingham.

    When RSPCA inspector Susan Hammond arrived at the house, she found the whining was coming from a Japanese Akita dog, named Skye, that had collapsed and was covered in maggots. A German Shepherd called Gino, and a third dog, a Shih Tzu called Miko, were also discovered inside the property living in squalid conditions.

    At Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday, the pair were given a 12-week prison sentence suspended for 12 months.

    They both admitted causing unnecessary suffering to Gino by failing to provide veterinary treatment for a tumour. The also admitted causing unnecessary suffering to Skye by failing to provide veterinary treatment for collapsed state, fly strike, maggot infestation, open wounds and sores. They also pleaded guilty to failing to meet the needs of Gino and Skye by failing to provide them with a suitable environment.

    Hai Huynh also admitted causing unnecessary suffering to Skye, by failing to provide veterinary care and attention for her weakness and inability to stand properly, and failing to meet the needs of the dogs by failing to provide them with fresh drinking water. The court heard that Hai was looking after the dogs while his father was away.

    After the case, RSPCA Inspector Hammond said: ‘Skye was in such a poor condition and had collapsed, she wasn’t able to stand at all. ‘Her high-pitched crying was evident that she was suffering a great deal. ‘She had open wounds on her body which were covered in maggots – her skin was rotting away and she was being eaten alive.

    ‘Myself and the vet who accompanied me on the visit to the house were really saddened by Skye’s state and she was put to sleep on humane grounds.’ Gino and Miko were taken to a vets, where they were also euthanised.

    Inspector Hammond added: ‘This is a very sad case which was the result of a long period of neglect.

    Good lord. That treatment amounts to torture as far as i am concerned. There are places you can take your animals if you don't want them, but to just allow that to happen is horrific. The pain the dogs must have been in cannot be imagined. They should have had longer sentences.

    As someone who's had to remove sheep in a similar state, no sense of smell came in handy, it'd be easy enough see the maggots. Espescially on an open wound. They can claim they "didn't know" if they feel like doing so. But in somewhere as close to a house as they were it'd not be possible to believe them.

    It's not a case of an appearance overnight, more a slow build up. Maggots only eat the dead meat, which will have left it's own smell around the place.

    Give them a "maggot patch" to wear for a week or so. Suspended sentence doesn't do anything.

    I have also come across a sheep suffering from fly strike. A lamb in fact. It was awful as was the smell. I could see the maggots eating the poor animal alive. No one can not see or smell something like that.

    A flock of twenty, many eaten alive like the dog, some to the bone in places. The owners didn't know how to look after them? Still wonder if they knew how to use a phone. Banned from keeping any animal again.

    But to not know the basics and manage to mistreat all of them, it isn't an excuse that anyone should be allowed to use. Pass the vets bill onto them, as well as the suspended sentences.
