Human food is bad for pets!

Research shows that UK’s pet population is the unhealthiest in Europe due to the feeding of human food with high levels of sugar, salt and fat as treats.  PFMA urges owners to feed pets prepared complete pet food formulated to meet all of the nutritional requirements of the animals in the amount specified on the product’s feeding guideline rather than feeding human food as treats or scraps that are bad for pets.  Also use our Pet Size-O-Meters to check if your pet is putting on excess weight.
