If giving children too much food is ‘child abuse’ these days, is giving dogs too much food ‘animal abuse’?
“A portly Labrador retriever, thought to perhaps be the fattest dog in the United Kingdom, is being slimmed down thanks to a restrictive diet and the help of the RSPCA.
According to Wednesday’s publication of The Sun, the 12-year-old dog named “Alfie” weighed an incredible 168 pounds when he was first surrendered to the RSPCA back in March.
Sadly, Alfie’s prior owner suffered from dementia and fed the dog multiple times throughout the day, forgetting that Alfie had already eaten.”
Should a person with dementia be allowed to own a dog if he is incapable of looking after a dog? Where are the relatives, carers, local Vet?
