Successfully Switched to Vegetarian Dog Food Diet
by Elizabeth Davies
Being vegan myself, I had more and more moral issues with feeding my dog what the slaughterhouses sweep off the floor and finally decided to start feeding her vegan dog food.
I first got V-Dog flakes because it looked delicious in the picture. She adored her first meal but then became a bit picky. I ended up having to always mix in couscous, pasta or rice to get her to eat it. She also went through a phase of needing to poo in the middle of the night, as she didn't tend to eat till late in the day, and emptying the bin regularly and eating paper tissues, which she used to only do very rarely - ex street dog, used to going through bins :o)
After the first sack, I decided to get something with less flakes as that had seemed to be part of her issue so she now gets V-Dog Flakes + Benevo. Benevo smells fishy and she absolutely loves it.
Since adding the Benevo, she has been perfectly happy, eats really well and has never again gone through the bin or needed to go out at night. We will probably get only Benevo in future as that seems to be best for her.
She looks perfectly healthy, her fur is shiny and her energy levels are very high, so I don't doubt that it must be good for her health and well-being.
