Channel Seven star and veterinarian Dr Chris Brown has blown minds across Australia with an unlikely trick for solving a common dog problem.
“In the vet hospital, I can tell you there’s nothing more awkward than mixing up the sex of a dog or cat. It really ruins the vibe. And some names can be a real mis-direct…like Luna. Or Jesse!” the star revealed in a post to his Drool by Dr Chris Brown Instagram page.
“Well, it turns out research says there’s another way to tell boy from girl. You know…apart from looking between their legs!”

In a blog post, Chris went on to reveal it was as simple as looking at a pet’s paws.
Yep, that’s right… Paws.

“It’s one of the simplest training tricks. But asking a dog to shake hands might be saying a lot more than you think,” his post read.
“That’s because researchers at the University of Sydney found that in both dogs and cats, males prefer to use their left paw while females prefer to use their right to shake.
“And even if they’re not into shaking hands, you should still see the same side preference for tasks like reaching under a sofa to grab a treat, flicking off a small piece of tape from their nose or steadying a rolling tennis ball so it doesn’t roll away.”

Chris’ revelation certainly came as a surprise to some pet-owners, with one writing: ‘Well.. I’ve learned something new,” in response.
“Noooo way would never have known,” another added.
It’s not the first time that Chris has blown minds with a revelation.
In September, he took to social media to share an odd piece of information about what was happening at his Bondi vet surgery as the weather warmed up, and his fans were gobsmacked.
The video was captioned: “The warning no vet wants to give … This actually happened. And will happen again next week.”
“So, after today I feel like I need to remind you that this …. is not a tick,” he said, showing a photograph of a dog’s nipple.
“The moment tick season begins, which is now, I see a dog a week in the vet hospital where their owner has tried to remove their nipple,” he continued, looking completely bewildered at how such a mistake could be made.
“Both male and female pets have eight of them, sometimes 10.
“So this is what a tick really looks like.”

The video then showed a close-up of a tick which, suffice to say, looks nothing like a dog’s nipple.
“So maybe free that …. not the nipple?” he concluded.
Followers were truly shocked that the two things could ever be confused.
“What? How can folks confuse the two?” one fan asked.
Dr Chris replied: “It happens a lot. Especially on the bigger nipples!”
“Omg, ouch!” another fan wrote.
“I’m in shock that people actually do this,” said a third.
“Oh it’s real. Almost weekly right now,” the vet and TV personality responded.
“Wow … People get more and more stupid every year lol 😂 🤦♀️,” remarked one follower.
