I think a dog needs REAL food (if possible, of course) and lots of love.. beyond that, it want's exercise and sunshine to roll around in. It doesn't know or care what vegansim is and it doesn't want a bunch of products when it has it's human to play with. A simple ball or stick will quite suffice lol.

As for cats, they're obligate carnivores. I've heard of people feeding their cats vegan diets and some swear by it and others are burying their pets. So as much as I hate it, I will continue to feed my cats other animals until I have a proven diet for them. I haven't looked into it really, but I'd rather not risk it.

If I had a dog I would definitely provide him/her with vegan products. I don't think a dog needs to be on a certain diet though. It's certainly up to their owner.

PLEASE DONT MAKE YOUR PET VEGAN!!!!!! Dogs and cats are not meant to be vegan, meat plays such an important role in your dog or cats health and diet! Please put the health of your animal first. Talk to your pets vet before switching it's diet!

Ami is a vegan food designed for cats. I use it with mine, along with supplementing with fish because - personally - I would find feeding her 100% vegan unethical and an all too dominant imposition of human will.

However Ami has been nutritionally/scientifically designed and has added taurine. Mainstream media has covered it quite a bit (positively) but I have a feeling it is only available in Europe. There is another brand I have tried, Benevo, which I believe is also a well-balanced dry food but my cat preferred Ami.

Pets will often eat organics (fruits and veggies) too. Dogs are better at this, but you need to know what you are doing. There are some books out there written by vets that list nutritionally balanced whole-foods diets for pets. I recommend searching the work of Juliette de Bairacli Levy, who was a vegetarian veterinarian and herbalist who fed her dogs a vegetarian whole-foods diet (possibly vegan, I gave my copy away long ago). I've heard of other books/vets on the grape vine, but I can't remember their names.

Dogs and cats are built to et meat - everything about their biology is built to digest a completely meat based diet. So to deprive them of that would be animal cruelty. I see the attraction of having vegan friendly toys, collars and so on. But they need to consume meat based products and not things that can harm them. I think people should research their pets diet, for example - not many people know that cats are lactose intolerant or the cocoa powder is lethal to cats and dogs, so is onion and a lot of other human safe foods.
We are different species and people need to be aware of that. The animal kingdom is perfectly balanced with it's instinct and through becoming vegan we consciously take responsibility of our intelligence in the animal kingdom and the health of the ecosystem by feeding our bodies what it was built for and feeding animals what they are built for.

No one here seems to be aware of BRAMBLE ! astonishing. vegans unaware of the Guinness World Book of Records Book in 2002 longest lived dog then ! VEGAN ! 25 years old fed on home made veggies ! like most peasants hunting dogs have been for decades I add.

It is a "modern" phenomenon to buy dog and catfood.

For decades and still now...hunting dogs we kept and others still keep...get fed not MEAT but boiled veggies pastas etc ! people in the country with hunting dogs do not feed their huskies laikas etc meat ! that is expensive and wasted on hunting dogs.

Super fit...fast obviously as hunting dogs need high energy

My MODERN fancy breed dogs...like my cat...were fed bought flesh content foods...what a mistake that was.

It is Poison...giving DEATH and CRUELTY to dogs and cats is ridiculous and unnecessary . especially for vegans.

Cancers...antibiotics...low grade below human flesh etc. it is all unhealthy besides cruel.

My relatives LAUGHED at me...more money than sense they said.

Then my female dog got stomac ulcers...vet said go vegan the acidity in stomac is the issue...and now both my dogs are fed vegan kibble and super healthy. no more stomac ulcers.

There are thousands of long lived healthy vegan dogs and cats out there. BRAMBLE is the most famous of course.

Hope this is informative as i am astonished that vegans do not know these things.
