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

Real People - - MUM TO MUM -

Dear Nigel,

My owner is un­lucky in love, and has dec­o­rated her flat with a mistle­toe in the hope of en­tic­ing some chap back for a kiss. For­get her love life –

I’m think­ing about my tummy, and those white berries look de­li­cious!

Love, Bob the Bos­ton Ter­rier, Ne­wark, Notts

Dear Bob,

Sadly, plants like holly, poin­set­tia and mistle­toe are poi­sonous for us pets and could prove fa­tal. Ask your owner to use an ar­ti­fi­cial mistle­toe in­stead – if she does have any gen­tle­man call­ers, you vom­it­ing all over them cer­tainly won’t cre­ate the right mood for a ro­man­tic evening! Love, Nigel xxx Nigel was helped by PDSA vet Re­becca Ash­man. The PDSA is the UK’S lead­ing ve­teri­nary char­ity. To do­nate to the PDSA, visit
