I've just finished watching Bondi Vet, Thursday 9th Sept, channel 10.
I can't believe what I've just seen.
Two cases - one an eight month old terrier attacked by a pitbull terrier. Blonde vet Lisa says 'the problem with pitbulls is they have this lockjaw and they won't let go'.
Second case, a woman brings in a small white puppy of unknown origin and asks for it to be DNA tested so she can be sure it doesn't contain any pitbull. Dr Chris DNA tests it, announces it's a staffy/whippet mix, and tells her she has nothing to worry about because the dog won't turn vicious when her kid's school friends are around.
I'm so outraged I can hardly speak. I can't believe such a prominent public show on veterinary medicine is spouting this GARBAGE.
First, pitbulls don't have a 'lockjaw'. Second, DNA testing is unreliable, and further more if that woman with the white pup fails to socialise and train her dog, it could just as easily go for her kid's school friends.
Seriously. I'm so livid I'm spitting, well, QWERTY keys. I've already hit the channel 10 forums - smoke rising from the keyboard as we speak...
