Okay, I haven't read any further than this, so someone else may have already said this. If so, I apologize.
I don't mean to sound like I'm attacking you, so please don't take this that way, but: If this is how you really feel than you need to take the dog to an animal shelter and sign her over to them so that they can treat her.
Your post doesn't have a location listed next to it, so I'm not sure where you live, but I know for a fact that here in the United States, failure to provide medical care for your dog is a crime. Literally. If someone reports it and animal services or the ASPCA come out, they will either order you to provide medical care or seize your dog. They can also fine you for cruelty to animals and if they think they have a strong enough case of cruelty/neglect, it can result in jail time, depending on where you live. By law in the United States, all pet owners are required to provide food, water, shelter, and medical care.
Now I obviously don't know you, so I can't judge you. It's entirely possible that you didn't know this. But now you do know.
Okay, I'm off to read the other responses.
