    I saw a story on Living Green (which I recently stopped following because it was only vegan supporting) about feeding dogs a vegan diet and I went off on the author. I said that for someone who was so concerned about the CAFO cows going into pet food the author clearly didn't give two flying flips about the health and well being of her dog! Yes, it is true that dogs are more able to digest carbohydrates than their ancestor wolves - that is one of the thing ONLY things that has changed about them from domestication that isn't aesthetic. Their digestion is still that of a wolf in every other way. So while they can tolerate some leafy greens and sweet potatoes - they were domesticated long before farming, so they aren't meant to eat legumes or grains as sources of carbs any more than humans are - and certainly not meant to eat VEGAN diets. As inhumane as it is to force feed cows corn, etc. in CAFOs and all the resultant health problems for that industrial system - it is equally inhumane to force dogs to eat vegan diets! Twice as inhumane to do so for cats who don't even have the ability to digest carbs that domesticated dogs have acquired.

    If you ONLY knew how close I've come on numerous occasions to do just that. But it's not worth it, it takes weeks to scrub the smell off your knuckles (so I've heard).

    The diet was suggested by my vet. Actually, a friend of mine fed her dog a home made vegetarian diet for years. That dog went from skinny/hair falling out to a beautiful dog with a thick coat and she lived to 14, pretty good for a dog her size. I'm not saying dogs should be vegetarian, but it just may be better than feeding them Alpo. I'd say the dog thrived on the diet (now she did eat eggs, not vegan). If it was abuse, that dog sure thrived.

    I know we all love meat here, but having toured a hog confinement operation and seeing chicken houses, I can't really fault the "hippies" for trying to eliminate their contact with that industry. I actually feel kind of weird feeding my dog dog food, knowing what I take lengths to avoid.

    It's the illogical lengths that vegans take it to that I have a problem with - I completely share their concerns about CAFO meats - and that's why I avoid it, while still eating ecologically and biologically appropriate diet for me as an omnivore. (And my dog eats a lot of what I eat, so for the most part she does too).

    A dog going from Alpo to a vegetarian home made diet is like a person going from the SAD to a whole foods vegetarian diet. They are going to be miles better off. But it is not because of getting rid of the meat. It is getting rid of the junk.

    Why not ditch the junk but keep the meat?

    Because you don't want to support the meat industry and don't have the money/resources to feed humane options. The cheapest beef I can find locally that I know is humanely raised and processed is $6 a lb and not in a consistent supply.
