Dr Scott Miller became teary as he revealed his beloved dog has died on today’s This Morning.
The vet was on Friday’s show to offer his advice to pet owners on a range of different topics from his clinic.
Rochelle told him: “I’m so sorry to hear about your lovely Betty.”
What did Dr Scott say on This Morning?
Becoming tearful, Dr Scott said: “Aw thanks guys, yeah,” as a photo of Betty popped up on screen.
He continued: “Yeah, I’ve had a tough couple of days saying goodbye to my very special dog.
“Yeah, I just want to say thank you to everyone that’s sent supportive messages.
“She’s been with me for 14 years and as a vet it’s really hard to say goodbye to your own dogs.
“But yeah, she’s like one of my kids, so yeah, it’s been tough.”
She’s been with me for 14 years and as a vet it’s really hard to say goodbye to one of your dogs.
