Dog ate my meltdown
ANXIOUS dog owners fear they are passing on their health problems to their pets.
Two in five owners believe their dog has developed such conditions as stress, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder in the past year.
One in seven say they are guilty of making their pets suffer the same stress that blights their own life.
And one in 10 feel they have passed on depression to their dog.
Some believe they also effectively pass on obesity and heart disease, a Direct Line Pet Insurance survey of more than 1000 dog owners found.
