From his days as a regular vet to becoming a household name across the country, Dr Harry Cooper's adoration of animals has never waned.
Growing up with pets sparked his love for all creatures, from dogs to reptiles, dolphins and giraffes.
The West Live opened yesterday and runs until tomorrow, with Dr Harry appearing on stage twice a day.
"I'll be doing some demonstrations on stage, talking about the ideal puppy for your home, and talking about alternative pets," he said.
The West Live is a three-day interactive journey through The West Australian held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Workshops and talks will be held over the weekend, and there are plenty of stalls related to the State's biggest newspaper on display.
