Pets are getting fat in the lockdown too

The "quarantine fifteen" doesn't just apply to people apparently. During the COVID-19 lockdown, it turns out our pets are getting fatter too! According to The New York Post, "About 33% of pets have beefed up since the lockdown started in March, according to a new survey conducted by Wakefield Research for Banfield Pet Hospital. Of the 1,000 animal owners surveyed in May, 25% of participants say their pet only gained “a little weight,”while 8% answered that their furry friends “gained a lot of weight,” the data shows.

And the proof is in the pudding: 40% of respondents said they are feeding their pets more snacks and treats since the COVID-19 outbreak started."
