Due to thousands of years of evolution alongside humans, dogs are omnivores (not carnivores!) and they have adapted to efficiently utilize plant-based foods for their nutrition a long time ago. Dogs can easily get all of their nutrients from plant-based sources and may even experience amazing health benefits like the elimination of allergy symptoms, better oral hygiene, improved skin/coat, and weight management. Dogs have additional genetic changes that make them efficiently utilize nutrients from plant-based sources. Our modern and evolved dog does not need meat in their diet to get their core nutrients. Vegan dogs are ruling the world!
We have compiled some of the top peer-reviewed research on vegan dogs.
