Vegan And Vegetarian Cats And Dogs
by Vegan Lions Monday, Apr. 16, 2012 at 5:52 PM
Millions of dogs and cats have become vegetarian and vegan because of their human companions. Since the 1930's, taurine, an enzyme cats are said to need, has been synthetically available. Vegan and vegetarian pets have longer life expectancy, fewer blocked urethra and kidney problems, less cancer, food poisoning, arthritis etc.

Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM – a heart disease) secondary to nutritional deficiencies of taurine and/or carnitine have been documented in golden retrievers, boxers, Doberman pinschers and cocker spaniels. ‘Giant’ canine breeds are also thought to be predisposed to DCM. Supplementation is advisable if doubt exists about dietary adequacy.
