Dear Dr Harry,

We have a 9 month old beagle called Max and every time we put him outside or we leave the house he barks non-stop. He has done this ever since we got him when he was 8 weeks old, We have tried various techniques but nothing has seemed to work, we know that beagles can be known for this and their stubborn nature, but is there anything else we can do?

Dear Dr Harry,
Your advice over the years greatly helped us in our relationship with our beautiful Toy Poodle. One session particularly about how our pets enjoy a back massage. For the remainder of her life we were presented with a back with the expectation of a massage.
If you could consider a future segment on preparing for our loved one's passing. The tough decisions that may or may not have to be made. Plus getting ready to grieve.

Dear Dr Harry,
I do hope you can help me. I have inherited my father's 41 year old Suplhur crested cockatoo. He came to live with me at Christmas time and I am still unable to handle him. I feel, if anything he is getting more aggressive. I know that his bitting is his attempt to get closer to me, but it is doing the opposite. It is becoming more difficult for me to be able to hand feed him fruit etc and just clean out his avairy.

He loved my father and they were very close. They used to go on walks in the back yard and he was able to freely wander around on the grass from time to time. Years ago I could also handle him, but not now. I want to give him the life that he used to have. I know he gets bored and I don't know what to give him to keep him entertained. He spends countless hours trying to raise the roof of his home.

I would so appricate any ideas that might help him have a happy life, he has a lot of years to go and the thought of him spending the next 50 years cooped up isn;t really appealing. Thank you,

Dear Dr Harry,

I saw a repeat of your show on late tonight and it brought back so many childhood memories. I just wanted to let you know your show was so inspiring and entertaining and such a great part of many lives while it was on. Thank you for all the shows and entertainment and I still love your show all these years later at 2 in the morning! I'm sure you've inspired many young Australia's to pursue a career as a vet, I'm sure you're the reason I always wanted to be one!

Dr Harry,

I have a 10 year old dog who constantly chews on her left paw until she bleeds and keeps going.

This started about 5 years ago when she broke her nail and since then has not stopped chewing her paw.

We have tried putting a cone on her head, pepper on the paw, the stuff that stops nail biting, Vaseline (as recommended by the vet), spraying her whenever she does, bandaging her paw and and so much more but none of it has stopped her.

Please help our dog before she drives herself insane.

Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon.

Dear Dr Harry,
My dog is a 2 and a half year old tibetan spaniel named Lily. She has a constant habit of eating her poo. We tried a different methods but no success so far. This was happening since she was a puppy. We feed her Advanced Dry food normally everyday.
Doctor please tell us if you would know any solution to prevent this disgusting habit.
Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon.

PLEASE HELP US DR HARRY!!! We have a beautiful lab x named Bella. We got her from someone who couldn't look after her, we have had her a few months now. She is a great dog and has transitioned really well into our home... How ever she has a few problems with jumping and getting to over excited. She craves constant attention even though we give it to her all the time. I have recently become pregnant with our first baby and it worries me because Bella gets so excited that she jumps / knocks me down ( not on purpose, she is just very strong ) I am worried about hurting myself or the baby if the continues. We need your help ! I hope to hear from you.
