The ultimate showdown. But do they need to be enemies? Do they even know they are seen that way.
Dr. Mel shows you some ways your pets can get along...
"Can you have dogs and cats living together or in close proximity? These two aren’t special, it happens a lot and they can be best of friends. The thing is they don’t really know that they are enemies or meant to be. I think we’ve created that situation. They are both domesticated pets and why shouldn’t they be okay with each other?
The things cats do to dogs that you need to be very wary of is if you’re introducing a puppy into a cats home is cats have got great little weapons which are called claws. Those claws are very good at swiping dogs in the face and I have several times had to stitch up a dogs cornea because it's had a really big swipe in it and that can be vision threatening or cause blindness.
So that’s the only thing you have to do if you introduce a puppy, do it very slowly and make sure you give your cat lots of attention so that they don’t feel neglected because it can be easy for them to get their nose of joint, just like I think Buzz has his nose out of joint now. Do you want to go? Okay there you go."

For 2 years now my dog (Australian Labradoodle) has a nose problem. It started with reverse sneezing and now the vet says it’s become chronical non specific Rhinitis.The vet has done scopes of the nose 3 times, CT scans of the nose, brain and her teeth (they thought she had a fistula from the nose to a tooth). Antibiotics: Synulox, Rhiningenta (that does help some), and more antibiotics, prednord 20 mg (but that made it worse) but they can’t find anything and nothing really helps. I live in the Netherlands and a few weeks ago I saw Bondi vet season 7 episode 2 and that was about an Australian Labradoodle with Lymphatic Plasmatic Rhinitis. Could you tell me if there is a cure for it?Yours sincerely Josine Verboom
i am devastated at the loss of my 18 month old moodle. She was my everything, so loving and crazy. An angel from heaven. She was mauled to death by a Staffy. I can' replace her, so was looking for the same style of small dog but different breed and colour thinking about chocolate or multi coloured as mine was a blonde. Devastated but feel so alone without her in our lives. Medical Retired couple, lots of loving to give, mostly an indoor dog, trainable, personality but great temperament. Ideas please? Loves walks and cuddles.
