Hello Youngling! (Or not so youngling) I hope you can enjoy my blog, its not tailored to anything in particular, just stuff I find deep/hilarious/mildly funny e.c.t Anyway! Go ahead and have a look, I hope you like what you see (;
On the menu for Maggie tonight is puréed sweet potato, puréed brown rice, sprouted organic tofu, chia seeds, and digestive enzymes. Does she look excited? She is!
This dog does not look excited, this dog looks malnourished.
The diet you are feeding your dog places a huge burden entirely on the pancreas, forcing it to produce large amounts of amylase to deal with the starch, cellulose, and carbohydrates in plant matter. (yes, even with your supplements) The carnivore’s pancreas does not secrete cellulase to split the cellulose into glucose molecules, nor have dogs become efficient at digesting and assimilating and utilizing plant material as a source of high quality protein.
When this stuff sits in the pet’s intestine (yes even with your supplemented enzymes) it not only irritates the lining of the bowels but also provides the perfect warm, wet environment with plenty of undigested sugars and starches as food for bacteria.
I respect your choice in leading a vegan lifestyle, but please do not force this on your pet who does not recognize the difference, your dog absolutely needs a healthier diet or it is going to develop health issues and I guarantee you, will not live as long as it could otherwise.
fuckin animal abuse
your dog cannot be vegan you sick fuck
how can you even tag this as “vegan dog”, youre screaming to the world that you are knowingly depriving this dog of what it needs.
Re blogging because this is just wrong.
Dogs cannot be vegan.
DOGS AND CATS ARE NOT VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN!
STOP IT, YOU’RE EMBARRASSING AND SADDENING THE REST OF US
I’m not sure how many times it will need to be stated before this becomes common knowledge, but I am determined to make it known, so here it is again:
Dogs and cats are biologically adapted to eat meat. And while dogs may not be obligate carnivores like cats, they DO NOT HAVE A DIGESTIVE TRACT SUITED FOR A VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN DIET ALONE. Dogs, like wolves, have adapted to eat certain plant products when meat is scarce. They do this only in rare instances, and only when nothing else is available. Just because they are capable of eating small amounts of plant foods doesn’t mean they can thrive on a diet consisting of that and that alone. In fact, a dog’s intestine is too short to fully-process a proper range of nutrients obtained from your sweet potato and rice dish. You are literally robbing your pet of important nutrients, leaving him malnourished and susceptible to bacterial infestations and disease.
Militant vegans seem to think they’re the experts on telling people which animals are adapted to eat which diets (clearly humans shouldn’t eat meat because we don’t have claws and fangs, amiright?). And yet when it comes to their pets, they break all the rules of their own ideology and feed what is obviously a carnivorous mammal a diet that is clearly not suitable for them.
So ask yourself: “Why am I really forcing my dog to eat this?” Is it because it makes you feel better about yourself? It’s clearly not for the benefit of your dog. You are imposing your will upon this animal in a manner which is detrimental to his health. This is abuse, plain and simple.
This is actually wrong. Cats CANNOT be vegan. Dogs can, however, be vegetarian if it is necessary. Some digestive issues of dogs (mostly pure breeds) make it so they can’t break down meat protein but instead must rely on vegetable proteins and the like. I don’t know if that’s the case with this dog but it could be(especially since it specifically states there are added digestive enzymes), cats are definitely not able to be vegetarians but dogs are a different matter entirely. Look on pet MD, ask your vet. It is possible, especially if they *need* to cut out animal protein due to genetic disorders.
That’s actually not like a thing? It’s an excuse people use. Dogs can have certain meat allergies (my lab mix can’t have chicken, my cat can’t have any fish) but dogs are built to digest meat, not plant matter.
"Especially in purebreds" source please
NO NO NO FUCKING NO STOP
The fucking ‘digestive enzymes’ added to that disgusting excuse for ‘dog food’ are there specifically because dogs by themselves cannot digest it properly. EVERY. FUCKING. VEGAN. OR. VEGETARIAN. ‘HOMEMADE’. DOG FOOD. HAS. THEM. At least the ones that are made by people who aren’t absolutely blind to the fact that dogs cannot digest plant shit.
Fun fact - dog has a meat allergy? Usually its only an allergy to one type of meat, like lamb, or beef, or fish, or poultry. Surprise! You don’t have to feed a veg*n diet if your dog has a meat allergy! YOU JUST SWITCH TO A DIET THAT DOESN’T INCLUDE THAT MEAT PROTEIN.
Holy fuck the lengths people will go to to excuse veg*n diets. It’s disgusting. There is no reason to force an animal to subsist on a diet that is actively causing it harm.
PS Just because Dogs can ‘survive’ better on a veg*n diet than cats doesn’t make it right.
