Real Peo­ple’s res­i­dent ‘dog­gie doc­tor’, Nigel, an­swers your pet’s prob­lems

Real People - - HEALTH & HAPPINESS -

Dear Nigel,

I’m no scaredy-cat, but fire­works do make me jump – and they’re al­ready ex­plod­ing around my way. What can my owner do to help me relax?

Lily, Black­heath, south Lon­don

Dear Lily,

Lots of pets feel the same! If your owner starts early, they could use a sound CD to get you used to fire­works. Cre­at­ing a safe space for you will help, too. On the night, make sure your owner brings you in early and closes the win­dows. Love, Nigel xxx Nigel was helped by PDSA vet Re­becca Ash­man. The PDSA is the UK’S lead­ing vet­eri­nary char­ity.
