Meat-Free Pet Owners Endagering Pets with Vegan Diets

Cats and dogs both have small guts that can quickly and effectively break down meat products, while plant-based options can be a lot harder for them to digest.

Cats get an amino acid called taurine from eating meat which is essential to their diet. They also get arginine, arachidonic acid and A and B vitamins.

Removing these components from a cats system can cause severe problems including heart failure, birth defects and liver problems.

Dogs are better equipped to handle a plant-based diet, but still require foods rich in protein and can suffer from heart diseases and vitamin D and B deficiencies from avoiding their natural food source. 

Pets require a balanced diet to gain their natural nutrients and benefits from their food, regardless of personal choice.

Supplements are available for pets with vegan diets, and can be taken in a number of different formulas for different animals.
