So, I gradually transitioned our boxer dog to vegan. It took a while, and a lot of trial and error finding the correct formula and food. He has always loved raw fruit and veggies, but many vegan dog foods gave him diarrhea or horrible gas attacks. I do understand the physiology of a natural carnivores digestion system, having a short digestive track thus needing to get maximum amounts of nutrients in a short period of time. I also endured endless comments about I was going to make my dog sick, weak, lethargic etc . . . We finally got the food and supplementation right! The vet says Champ is "amazingly healthy and vibrant". Anyway, this video will speak for itself . . . here he is 6 1/2, nearing "senior dog" status for a boxer. Enjoy.
