Vegetarian Dog Food
Can your pet dog be raised healthily on vegan or vegetarian pet food? On a completely meat-free diet?
Yes, yes it can – safely, and often more healthily than raising on tinned meat-based products.
Sorry did you want more information than that? Oh alright then…
In the 10,000 years since dogs have lived as life companions by our sides, things have changed a great deal. Just like how seals moved from the swamp to the sea, dogs’ genetic maps have completely changed since the days they wandered the terrain as wolves. Wolves still need meat, dogs no longer do. Why? Dogs have adapted at our side to create energy efficiently from plant based foods.
Look at the science.
Your husky may look like a Siberian wolf on the outside, but not on the inside. Since we domesticated dogs as our best friend, the gene Amy2B has shot up in dogs. Amy2B is crucial for Amylase production, and this gene is now 2800% more present in dogs than wolves.
