Pet owners in Wales are sharing their unhealthy eating habits with their animals in a "well-intentioned but misguided attempt to make them happy," warns vet charity PDSA.

Research by the charity shows that almost seven in 10 pet owners in Wales give their pets fatty treats, putting their quality of life at risk.

Takeaways, biscuits, chips and even alcohol are some of the high-calorie human treats being shared with thousands of pets across the country.
