This Morning presenter Alison Hammond got a ticking off from vet Dr Scott Miller today during a phone-in segment.
Dr Scott appeared on Friday’s show to help viewers with their pet dilemmas.
One woman phoned in to get advice on her Cavapoo, who was suffering from a phantom pregnancy.
What happened on This Morning with Alison Hammond?
As Jayne explained her dog’s problem, Alison was heard giggling in the background.
Jayne said: “I have a Cavapoo, she’s nearly three and she’s going through a phantom pregnancy,” as Alison giggled.
Dr Scott said, “Alison, it’s not funny,” to which Alison was heard saying: “Sorry.”
She added: “Oh my God. I didn’t even know that would happen!”
Jayne continued: “[My dog] is crying. This is really unlike her and we just don’t know what to do with her because she’s so so sad.”
Dermot O’Leary asked: “Dr Scott, can you first explain what a phantom pregnancy is?”
Oh my God. I didn’t even know that would happen!
Dr Scott said: “Yes, so it actually is a real condition,” as he looked at Alison.
Alison said: “Sorry, I haven’t heard of this before!”
Dr Scott added: “It’s basically where the body is confused in thinking it’s pregnant.”
Viewers weren’t impressed with Alison’s comments and shared their thoughts on Twitter.
One person said: “I was a bit upset by the pet segment. I love Alison but she should have been told that pet problems are nothing to laugh at.”
Another wrote: “Glad the nice Vet doc told Alison off. She’s was being disrespectful.”
However, others defended Alison.
What did This Morning viewers say?
One wrote: “Reading comments on here about #ThisMorning. Whatever happened to #BeKind? Guys, if @AlisonHammond & @radioleary aren’t your type of viewing just turn over..”
Another tweeted: “I’m sorry but Alison Hammond is the best thing to ever happen to #thismorning her and Dermot are the perfect team.”
