Fat Pets Fat Owners

LIVING CHANNEL – Thursday 30 December, 11pm

Earlier this year, we met three severely overweight animal owners and their pets as they embarked on the ultimate weight loss journey together. It has been widely publicized that the developed world is facing an obesity epidemic. But what many of us don’t know is that our household pets are getting fat as well: our dogs, cats and hamsters. In many cases not just fat – but huge, obese even. In this one-off special we look back on the chubby pets and owners to see if their lives improved.
