Many vegan pet parents wonder if they can feed their dog a vegan diet. You will be happy to know that the answer is yes!
Just like humans, the scientific community classifies dogs as omnivores. The current practice is to feed our four-legged friends a lot of meat, but evidence shows that dogs can thrive on a meat-free diet.
Contrary to popular belief, complete proteins aren’t only found in animal products. High quality plant proteins such as yeast, fungi, and algae are complete proteins, meaning they contain the 10 essential amino acids a dog needs to obtain from diet. Amino Acids work for dogs in the same way they do for humans. They help dogs build muscle, produce hormones, and fight infection.
There is a wide misconception that we need to feed meat to our dogs. But dogs don’t need to eat meat, what they need is quality protein!
