Tesco has become the first UK supermarket to start selling chilled meals for cats and dogs as the clean eating trend takes hold of the pet world.

Made by US company Freshpet, the fresh food ranges in price, with the cheapest costing £4 and rising to £13.50 for a full doggy dinner featuring, chicken, vegetables and brown rice.

Other delicacies available include roast beef as well as chicken, spinach and potato.

According to Freshpet, their food is 'just like a home cooked meal made in your kitchen' and will help to 'improve' the quality of your pet's life.
