    Hello my fellow vegans, and vegans ONLY,
    I was wondering you guys can answer some of my pet questions.

    How many pets do you have? What type of pets are they? What brand/food do you feed them?
    Also, if you own a pet cat or dog and you feed them vegan food, what brand do you feed them? I am looking for an easily accessible and cheap vegan brand for both cats and dogs. Thanks in advance.

    I am assuming most of you feed them vegan food, that’s why I didn’t want meat eater or vegetarians to answer, lol. Then I would have tons of them against it and discriminating between animals, I just don’t want to deal with that, so if you have don’t have something positive to say then don’t say anything at all.

Please log in to reply.

    Hey @lizforanimalrights16,

    My advice to you would be to make sure you’re REALLY ready before getting a companion animal! They can be a lot more work than some people realize, especially when we’re young and we’re still moving around, going off to college, all that good stuff :)

    And if you do feel ready, make sure you adopt from a shelter (I’m sure you already know this!!!).

    As for me, I have a companion bunny. Bunnies actually make great companion animals because they’re all vegan already. I share a lot of my produce with her, and then buy her hay too. She’s one of my favorite vegan friends :)

    With cats it can be really hard to feed them a vegan diet as there are essential chemicals and nutrients such as L-carnitine and Taurine that are found in the meat that cats eat. You can get synthetic versions put into food but you need to find brands that supply adequate amounts. A lot of cats cannot synthesis vegetable protein efficiently either. They don’t function like us biologically so changing a cats diet isn’t the same as changing ours. If you are really serious about it I suggest going to a animal nutritionist to see if it will be a viable option for your cat. If it is then good and good luck, if it is not then don’t try and force it on your cat.

    Dogs are much easier to feed a veggie diet I have heard but still go and see a specialist about it.

    One cat but she doesn’t eat veg*n cat food, I can’t really afford it and she’s so fussy I doubt she’d eat it (I’ve tried her with some in the past, as a treat, and she turned her nose up at it!).

    When I’ve had dogs in the past, they had a mostly vegetarian diet as it’s much easier for dogs to be veg*n than it is cats.

    I love food and animals(reason why I'm here :)). Pescatarian for a few months but then realized fish also have a life and feelings just like any other living creature, so I became Vegetarian. Peta2 helped me a lot on becoming a better person and why Im going Vegan. Love being surrounded by people who share the same interests as me, so If you have any questions feel free to ask ! :)
