Dr Harry moved to Channel 7 in 1993 to host his first series ‘Talk to the Animals’. In 1997, Dr Harry returned to consulting rooms to film a new series, ‘Harry’s Practice’ which ran for 6 years. Dr Harry immediately joined the team at ‘Better Homes and Gardens’ and has been providing pet information and advice to viewers ever since.
