A VET has taken to TikTok to reveal the three things he wishes dog owners will stop doing.
Doctor Hunter Finn, from Texas, US, shared his top pooch pet peeves he sees people make.
He said: “So I’m a vet and I’m going to tell you a few things that I don’t like you doing to your dogs.”
First up, Hunter revealed that he hates retractable leads.
“I’ve seen a lot of dogs break off of those and I’ve also seen a lot of rope burn from that,” he explained.
Next, the dog expert revealed that you should stop giving your dogs bones to chew on.
He added: “You really should stop giving your dog bones because honestly if they’re a hard chewer you’re going to end up with a broken tooth and spending hundreds of dollars with me to get it removed.”
Finally, he recommended not skipping brushing your dog’s teeth.
“It helps their overall health.
“Imagine if you went through your entire life without brushing your teeth,” he said.
The video has since gone viral with over 228k views and over 15,000 likes.
Viewers quickly took to the comments section of the video to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “Retractable leashes have their place in the toolbox, but most people don’t use them correctly.”
Another person commented: “After a $3800 stomach surgery with my bull terrier….we are a NO bones house.”
“Retractable leashes are the worse,” penned a third.
Meanwhile, a fourth commented: “Yup I agree. None of my pets will ever have a bone or natural chew. Way too many risks.”
“I got a retractable leash years ago before I knew better and have a scar from the rope burn,” claimed a fifth.
