About

A treat wouldn’t be a treat if it was something that we ate as part of our regular diet. The same goes for our pets, what we feed them as a treat for being good shouldn’t be given to them all of the time. It’s tempting to give your dog or cat the leftovers from your Sunday roast, or to let them drink the remainder of your morning coffee. But can you be sure that what your pet loves to eat is good for them and won’t result in a visit to the vets?

Purrfect Treat or Barking Mad? provides the answers that pet owners seek; can my pet eat this food? We surveyed 962 pet owners to find out how many have fed their dogs and cats potentially life threatening ‘human’ food in the past month. With professional advice from Veterinary Surgeon, Alison Price BVetMed BSc (Hons) MRCVS, we have created a pet quiz to help pet owners understand what food they can and can’t feed their furry friends. With additional calorie and quantity comparisons, Purrfect Treat or Barking Mad? highlights shocking information like how 1 oz of cheese is in fact over half of a cat's calorie intake allowance per day.

Take the quiz and find out if you’re clued up on what foods are safe for your pet to eat. Don’t worry if you get some questions wrong, Purrfect Treat or Barking Mad? provides all the relevant information you need to help you understand why your pet can’t consume certain foods.
