United Kingdom's pet obesity epidemic

In 2015, The Guardian reported concerning the United Kingdom: "Fat cats – and dogs and rabbits – are expected to outstrip healthy ones within five years, as pet obesity rates continue to rise across the country..."[1]

According to Britain's Daily Mirror:

Fatty treats and junk food are to blame for a "tragic" obesity crisis for British pets, according to new research.

Owners are giving more than 10 million animals high-calorie foods such as take-aways, biscuits, chips and even alcohol, the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) charity found."[2]
