$pdf = new FPDF();
$pdf->AddPage();
$pdf->SetFont('Arial','B',16);

$array1= array(1,2,3);
$array2= array('apple', "ball", "cat");

$pdf->Cell(40,10,'Numbers');
$pdf->Cell(40,10,'Animals');
$pdf->Ln(10);
foreach($array1 as $key=>$row){
    $pdf->Cell(40,10,$row);
    $pdf->Cell(40,10,$array2[$key]);
    $pdf->Ln(10);
}
$pdf->Output();

As FPDF examples you can uses Cell() for display values. And For the Line breaks use Ln(). I assume both $array1 and array2 have similar number of elements. First two Cells use to display headings, then inside the loop display both values.
