Vegan diets for your cat and dog? “WTF” would be a suitable acronym when it comes to these ideological human diets imposed on cats and dogs.
Sadly we’re starting to see more and more of this. Cats and dogs have a shorter digestive tract more akin to digesting meat proteins not vegetable proteins, especially in the case of cats who are obligate carnivores.
A few months ago I was very disappointed to see BIOpet Vegan dog food on the shelves of my local City Farmers. I thought this was a joke at first, or a supplemental food, but on further inspection it’s nothing more than a very clever marketing ploy to sell what is essentially a cheap to produce food that isn’t appropriate for a dog.
If you care about your dog or cat, then please feed an appropriate diet regardless of your own personal beliefs.
