Dear Dr Harry, I breed angora rabbits and am extremely concerned that the government is proposing to bring in a new, even more deadly variant of the dreaded calici rabbit virus, to be released next year. Many people within the rabbit breeding community are desperately trying to raise awareness of our plight, and need your help to promote our cause. We need government agencies to take us seriously. If you have any advice at all that could help us, that would be much appreciated. Meanwhile, my friends at IxChel Angora Bunny and Funky Fibre Arts have a blog posting outlining some of our concerns: http://ixchelbunny.blogspot.com.au/2015/08/rare-breeds-and-fight-against-stupidity.html?m=1

Hi Dr Harry, my Lhasa apso which is 2, has recently started displaying bad behaviour at night. A few weeks ago he was fine and was sleeping in his own bed with our other dog and they both sleeping fine all night, up until now the Lhasa apso has started trying to sleep on the bed with my partner and I, once we put him on the ground in his bed he starts crying, as we ignore him he gets worse, he does not need to go to the toilet and is well fed, he then wakes us up with the crying at all hours of the night. We have tried almost everything we can think of. Hope you can help

Dr Harry, I need your help! We have an 8 month old Kelpie. We did a lot of research before getting him and understood that he needs a lot of physical and mental stimulation. We thought we were providing enough but it looks as though we aren't. There's talk amongst neighbours wanting to create a petition about him because of barking, I'm really worried!

Dear Dr Harry,
We need some help. Our lovely little 2yr old ragdoll cat turns into a scared and nasty girl whenever we have guests. She growls or meows in a complaining way and tries to bite if she gets patted. She even turns on us and becomes a little viper when we try to hold or pat her if there are guests in the house - even familiar guests. She's 100 times worse with other animals. She seems terrified and on a mission to stalk and kill them all at the same time. Treats and love doesn't help. She doesn't care for treats. Please help :( it's like it's getting worse and I'm pregnant and scared of how she'll be with the baby.

Hello Dr Harry,
we have a 7 year old Staffy/Lab who freaks out at the bug zapper- and we live near a lake so are constantly inundated with midges. As soon as he sees that blue light he starts panicking, he even tries to barge his way through the gate when he sees it or hears the noise. He's also the same with thunder and lightning and loud bangs.

please help :)
