    We are having a pet clinic on The Wright Stuff on Five this week and we are hoping to talk about how to help dogs through the heat wave. Does anyone have a dog that needs this type of advice that they would like to appear on The Wright Stuff this week?

    What day is this being covered?

    Are you just looking for a dog to come in? Depending on the day I could do this, although don't need the advice personally.

    Hi, I'm in West London but I'm afraid I'm working on Friday - sorry.
    Hope you find someone - if you have any problems finding someone I know a lot of dog owners locally and could see if I can find someone, but hopefully you will find someone from one of the forums.

    I cant ime too far away but this will be very helpfull to a lot of people i would think. I would have as 2yrs ago we had to keep our dog as cool as possible he had congestive heart failure caused by having an enlarged heart (dilated cardio myopathy) the heat or cold would kill him, he was treading a very thin line, sudden death could have happened any time so the heat was particularly dangerous unlike other dogs he could not cool off with a swim you could not hose him as the difference in sudden change of temp would have killed him. So we would have found this type of programme/advice invaluable.

    Hi Dundee, I would really appreciate it if you could put me in touch with anyone you think might be interested in having their pet dog on The Wright Stuff in relation to helping them through the hot summer weather?

    I think this is a great idea for a show, I'll be making sure I Sky Plus it.

    Have you managed to get a dog for the show yet?

    Unfortunately we haven't managed to get a dog to appear on the show. I fear we might have to cancel it if we don't find someone by the end of today.
