This Morning fans were left heartbroken today after discovering resident TV vet Dr Scott Miller's dog has died.
Miller broke down in tears during Friday's show as he talked about poor Betty's death.
Speaking via video link to This Morning hosts Rochelle Humes and Alison Hammond, Scott admitted the last few weeks have been "tough" on him.
Beloved by the TV vet, Betty was 14 years old when she died.
Comforting the medic, Rochelle said: "I'm so sorry to hear about your lovely Betty."
As his voice shook, Dr Scott said: "Aww thanks guys, yeah…
"Yeah, I've had a tough couple of days."
Fighting back tears, the animal lover continued: "I was saying goodbye to my very special dog.
"Yeah, I just want to say thank you to everyone that's sent supportive messages.
"She's been with me for 14 years and as a vet it's really hard to say goodbye to one of your dogs.
"But yeah, she's like one of my kids, so yeah, it's been tough."
Looking heartbroken from the ITV studio, Rochelle admitted she wanted to reach through the camera and give him a hug.
Taking to social media earlier this week, Dr Scott confirmed the passing of Betty with a snap of the mutt alongside the caption: "I had to say goodbye to my beautiful friend of 14 years this evening, and my heart is broken.
"Betty I love you so much and am so grateful to have had you in my life. Run free my beautiful girl…I will love you forever xxx."
Watching from home, viewers were moved by the heartbreaking news, as they sent their sincere condolences to the TV vet.
