Maggie Menu
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. 

side reminder that some dogs can have vegan meat and be completely nourished and content, loving and excited over their meals. See: Onision’s two dogs, Dobs and Leelu. Actually, his name is Greg. He, his wife Lainey, and their two dogs are all vegetarian, and both Dobs and Leelu thrive. They look very well nourished, are energetic, very loving towards both Greg and Lainey, and they are fed vegetarian foods. Do dogs and cats eat meat? Absolutely. With the right nourishments, can they live, thrive, and live a happy and healthy life without it? You bet your sweet ass they can. Stop bagging on this person for feeding this to their dog. I may advise offering meaty treats to your pet, perhaps chop some chicken or throw in some cooked red meat, but your dog seems very okay to me. The meat would be an added bonus that may please your pooch and also provide additional protein and minerals. He/She seems healthy to me, and also seems interested in the food you’re about to feed them. Do not let these people tell you that you’re abusing your dog. If you choose to continue their diet in this way, I would definitely look more into different kinds of treats that would help with the digestion more, though I don’t know too much in that area. Best of luck to both you and your puppy dog!

Hi hello you seem new to veterinary science and animal welfare in general so let me educate you on some topics that you are completely wrong about
1) “side reminder that some dogs can have vegan meat and be completely nourished and content, loving and excited over their meals.”
This is an assumption. The assumption that dogs are omnivores remains to be proven, whereas the truth about dogs being natural carnivores is very well-supported by the evidence available to us and is understood by many science welfare groups, universities, and doctors of veterinary science. 
Dogs and wolves share 99.8% of their mitochondrial DNA, those who insist dogs did not descend from wolves must disprove the litany of scientific evidence that concludes wolves are the ancestors of dogs. And guess what? The wolf is a carnivore. Since a dog’s internal physiology does not differ from a wolf, dogs have the same physiological and nutritional needs as those carnivorous predators. 
By stating otherwise you are ignoring and disregarding the work of contributing doctors, educators, and researchers who have compiled over 300 years of research and observations of the wild canine.
2) Do dogs and cats eat meat? Absolutely. With the right nourishments, can they live, thrive, and live a happy and healthy life without it?
No. But congratulations, you got one thing right, dogs and cats eat meat. Can they live a happy and healthy life without it? No they cannot. Cats and dogs health is largely dependent on the body’s ability to digest and make use of the food that is a part of their natural diet that is supplemented from meats. By creating a lack of naturally produced (meat, not supplements) protein in the body of the animal, you are putting your animals at risk for something called protein-losing enteropathy. Although this condition can affect any breed or age of dog, some dog breeds are more likely than others. That being said, feeding your dog and cat an all vegan or vegetarian diet and expecting them to thrive on it is a gamble at best.
There is an entire array of problems that can arise from a lack of natural protein.  
Occasional bouts of diarrhea
Chronic diarrhea
Weight loss
Lack of energy (lethargy)
Difficulty breathing (dyspnea)
Enlarged abdomen
Legs and feet may be puffy or swollen (edema)
Cancer in the intestines
Infection in the intestines
Bacteria such as salmonella(from rotting plant material)
Fungal infection
Intestinal parasites like hookworms and whipworms

Inflammation of the intestines (inflammatory bowel disease)
Food Allergies
Stomach or intestinal ulcers
Congestive heart failure
Problems with the movement of lymphatic fluid out of the intestines (lymphangiectasia)
3) “He/She seems healthy to me, and also seems interested in the food you’re about to feed them.”
Hey, wrong again. This dogs nose is dried out, it is almost a pale white pink, this is an indication of dehydration or something more serious. The eyes are not clear and bright as they should be, they are red and puffy around the edges, the lining of the eyelids should be pink rather than red. This dog also has a blank stare on its face, and the nose is not pointing at the food, this means the dog is uninterested and is a sign of lethargy. This dog is begging for this meal to be something nutritious. I work at a highly respected veterinary hospital and I see this more often than you would think, I know how to tell when a dog looks malnourished, and so would you if you worked and studied every day in the field of veterinary medicine.
Next time I hope you will take the initiative to educate yourself on these and other important topics on the care for your animal, before you preach something you have no idea about.

Reblogging for that ABSOLUTE SLAP DOWN above.

Golden response is golden. Also laughing at the insistence that the dogs are loving (this proves what exactly? It’s a dog.) and excited about their food. Shitty vegan food is all it gets to eat, of course it’s going to be interested in eating regardless of what’s in the dish.

DO NOT FEED CARNIVORES VEGAN DIETS/

Purposely feeding an inappropriate diet to an animal under your care is neglect and cruelty. Period.
So don’t do it.
-SS

Why the fuck would you do this to your dog?

uUGUGHhh this makes me mad every time. 
I feed my cats fresh, raw, homemade dinners every night. The main feature is MEAT, THEY NEED MEAT, WHY WOULDN’T THEY NEED MEAT. Taurine. Hello. 
Look, the reason most HUMANS avoid meat is because we’re surrounded by shitty processed shit, we don’t always know where the meat comes from, we’re uncomfortable eating animals, or just simply: meat hurts my tummy, so I stopped eating meat for my health! 
I don’t eat that much meat. I just can’t. It fucks me up. I’m battling a few illnesses right now, it’s a long story. But I cut up raw meat for my cats every day. I started this after Opie got really skinny and had to get a radio-iodine treatment for FOUR DAYS in the hospital. We had earlier that year lost a cat after a two year battle against cancer (which I documented on this blog)
I knew that making homemade food would be really good for my cats, so I did my research and tested it out. 
Now Opie and Jeremy are both filled out and really fluffy and strong. Opie is 14 years old and still trying to jump the fence! 
It’s awesome to be cooking for them rather than giving them over-processed crunchies but it’s really not that hard to do a raw meat diet. If you’re gonna be cooking for them anyway, make it what they would NATURALLY EAT. Some people even do the frankenfood where they make each meal sort of the equivalent in protein and nutrients that the pet would be getting from the animals they’d hunt in the wild. That’s a great way to really get your pet’s body to a very natural and healthy state. 
But like, gahhh, why would you even think that it’s okay to make your animal go vegan.

I know what you motherfuckers did. 

I just can’t stop thinking about 4 years ago and how I thought I was on top of the world, how infinite I felt then.
