What I Feed My Vegan Dog

I used to believe that feeding a dog a vegan diet was both dangerous and cruel. However, after discovering the truth about the pet food industry and what is actually in commercial dog food nuts, I decided that I had to look into a healthy and cruelty-free way of feeding my dog. If you want to find out more about what’s in these deadly foods, here’s a link to my blog post : The Truth About The Pet Food Industry

So, after doing a bit of research online, I decided to start making my dog homemade food. Here’s what I put together:

2 Cups of Oats

8 Cups of Water

2 Cups of Rice

1 Cup of Linseed

1 Tbsp of 100% Peanut Butter

1 Tbsp of Molasses

1/2 Cup of Soya Milk

2 Carrots

1/2 Bag of Quorn Chicken (Fake Meat)

1/2 Bag of Peas

2 chopped Potatoes

———-

I threw this all into a Saucepan and heated it for about 20 – 25 minutes. I allowed it to cool and served it up (for the first time) last night. To my delight, my dog loved it. She has never been a fan of the usual dog nuts we used to buy her and often didn’t eat them. But she seemed to love the vegan dish I served to her to such an extent that the bowl ended up at the other side of the room by the time she had finished.

I only added the Quorn meat because this brand of fake meat actually has eggs and sometimes milk in the ingredients and I am currently trying to get rid of the numerous bags stuffed into my freezer.

I would recommend that everyone does their research and finds out what exactly is in the food they are feeding their pets.

The Truth About The PetFood Industry ?

Today I learned something horrific. I was shocked to hear the truth about what’s really in my pets food. I usually use commercial dry dog nuts for feeding my dog (usually non-vegan as I have failed to find any vegan dog food). I will not be purchasing this type of dog food, however, as of today.

I learned that the ‘meat’ in these pet foods is usually meat from diseased animals, as this would not be suitable for humans. But what makes it suitable for our pets? As a result, there have been traces of harmful chemicals, hormones, metals and much more found in these pet foods. These can be very harmful (for obvious reasons) to our cats and dogs.

I am going to try my best to find a suitable vegan dog food for my dog or at least find some meal ideas that I can whip up easily at home.
