Ive done a reasonable amount of research on this topic and Im pretty sure the general answer is:
Dogs - Can thrive on a vegan diet with Vet supervision and dont have any need for a prescription diet.
Cats - Not a good idea
whatever "research" you have done is not provided in any links...however...i like others researched what qualified people wrote and have seen and have healthy vegan cats.
animals are not ours to use is an additional issue...it is simply not vegan to breed and kill animals to use.
www.vegepets.com is science.
