You once did a house call on a Pug that was a guts and stood over the other dogs in the family and stole their food can you please tell me the diet you put him on as we have a Foxie cross Jack Russell who is guts his food and is over weight, we have already started feeding him from muffin tin but I would still like to feed him that diet you prescribed for the Pug.

Dear Dr Harry

I recently bought a VIPDOG FOOD pet roll and just found out that it contains garlic. It even has picture of a garlic on the side. I read that garlic is poisonous to dogs. Is this the case? If it is then this company is definitely in the wrong.

Dear Dr. Harry,

I have a one year old English staffy. We have never been able to get him to walk on the lead. With a toddler, the park is a daily thing so it would be wonderful to bring him with us. He shakes and just lays there no matter what we do. Please help.

Dear Dr Harry

My parents have a 4 year old spoodle that has never had a chance to live it's life as a dog. It is never allowed outside without being on a leash - forced to go to the toilet on a swag of newspaper on the verandah - and my parents - due to my mother's fears of the dog eating something outdoors that it shouldn't - now can barely leave the house and if they do the dog has to come with them and sometimes suffer being locked in a car in sunshine. I realise this is a human behavioural issue rather than a dog issue but I am hoping that with your expertise that you may be able to correct this.

Please contact me when you are able to. My fiancé and I can't even organise our families to get together to discuss the forthcoming wedding because the dog controls all of my parents movements.


A very desperate son - Winston.

Dear dr Harry,
I have a 1 year old short hair domestic cat that has behaviour problems. I have tried everything to try and calm her, from treats playing down to getting feliway. Though she still doesn't want to be pat, my partner gets attacked when trying to touch her, She gets more aggressive at random times.
She has also been trying to get outside constantly crying at the door and sometimes trying to bolt outside.
Please help dr harry

Hi Dr Harry.
I have a cattle dog that's nearly 2 that wont go for walks. She's very active in our yard & loves to play with us & our piglet however when we try taking her for walks we can only get her as far as walking out the front door then she walks to the side gate & wants to go back in the yard. She's not scared of the lead & enjoys walking if she's in an unfamiliar area, it's like she thinks she's not allowed outside when we're inviting her out with us. What can we do?

Hi Dr Harry need help with a pet dog she's a beagle cross staffie and she's only 2 yrs old, her name is miffy and I need help. When we put her outside she barks and barks she scratches at the doors and her barks get louder and louder to a high pitched bark. She destroyes everything that's not nailed down. Very energetic, aggressive towards other dogs and people to sometimes. She's ok to handle we have her in some training but it's not working much and we don't know what to do. Please help we are desperate!!!

Hi Dr. Harry. I am asking on behalf of my mum. She has an approx. 12month female kitten that seems to have some sort of behavioural problem. She seems to pee on everything that my father has touched like his work bag and twice on his feather pillow. It seems to happen when my parents have left the house so they haven't been able to catch her in the act to discipline her. Mia loves dad big time and sits on his lap etc but doesn't do it with mum. She also starts crying if she is left inside while my parents are outside. She is desexed and is an indoor cat. Please Dr. Harry my parents are at their wits end!!!
