These human foods are making your dog pack on the pounds

A new study by the online shop Pet Range has revealed the human foods that could be making your dog fat.

Many pet owners offer their furry friends a nice treat for good behaviour, but sometimes they may not consider the impact of the food they’re sharing.

“Most of us don’t realise just how calorie-dense our food can be for our pets,” Lisa Melvin, a Pet Range spokesperson, said.
