Curry - not a healthy food for pets. (photo)

Dear pet owners,

Please don't feed your pets chips, cheese, scones, curry, pizza, ice cream, cake or sweets. These foods are high in fat and not healthy for pets (or humans).

Sorry for stating the obvious, but this article fromThe Telegraphmakes me worry.

" Researchers for The People's Dispensary for Sick Animals found that in the past year there has been a 10 per cent increase in the number of overweight animals.

PDSA senior veterinary surgeon Sean Wensley said the pets' weight gain could be down to their owners giving them fatty and sugary snacks with little knowledge of what harm they were doing.

He said pets were being fed chips, cheese and scones.

"Others that have been mentioned are crisps, curry, pizza, ice-cream, cake, and sweets," he added."
