Vegan cats and dogs?hmmm...I'm not so much sure I'd enjoy the taste as much as regular cats and dogs.

Seriously though, cats and dogs are designed to eat meat. They are not designed to run on a vegan diet.

My vet told me that cats should be on a meat-only diet. Dogs should also eat mainly or only meat. However, it's not as vital for dogs to eat only meat than cats. My pug is overweight and her diet consists of replacing 1/3 of her food with green beans.

Yeah, cats usually get all the vegetable matter they need from killing mice and eating their plant-filled stomachs, although I'm not sure whether or not they need it. You can get dry cat food that has vegetably bits in too.

Uh, maybe. My dog won't let me do it, but she eats greenies and has greenie bones, so they seem to be working just as well.

I recieved this today in my email today from the ASPCA of which i am a member. Thought I would share it.



FROM OUR EMAIL BAG: SHOULD GREENIES GET THE RED LIGHT?
Have you heard the recent reports circulating on the Internet that dogs have choked on Greenies? In response to recent claims that these popular edible chew toys are dangerous, weve received many inquiries from concerned pet owners, including ASPCA News Alert reader Mary Kay Mullen. I am confused about all the news about the danger of death to animals given Greenies, writes Mullen. Please respond with the ASPCAs position on these treats.

We checked in with the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Centers Dana Farbman, CVT, who explains, To our current knowledge, Greenies do not pose a higher risk for gastrointestinal tract obstruction than any other edible chew product.

Thats not to say, however, that pooches should be free to chew to their hearts content. As dog owners probably know, there are many different types of pet chews on the market, designed for various species and sizes, and various types of chewers as well. Edible flavored or dental chews, rawhide or plush toys are generally designed for pets who are mild to moderate chewers, not strong chewers or shreddersincluding those who typically consume food rapidly and in large pieces, says Farbman.

While it is often difficult to determine what kind of chewer your pet is, it is a good idea to always directly supervise your pet if you give him any edible chew or toy that could be torn, shredded and possibly ingested in large pieces. And even if you think that your pet is not a strong chewer, cautions Farbman, note that some pets can become bored or upset if left to their own devices, and may wind up destroying and subsequently consuming a toy or chew they previously only casually played with or nibbled on.

Watch the garbage! Apples, Apricots, Cherries, Peaches and Plums seeds, stems and leaves contain a chemical that can act like cynide, and any part of avocados can be toxic.


I totally agree that you shouldn't give your little one apple seeds, but apples are a wonderful treat for your fur baby.
I have given Henry dried apples as treats and he can't seem to get enough of them.  Drying them make them sweet but not sugar sweet. 

Also dried yams are the same way.  After they are dried they turn more into a chew than a cookie like treat.  I tend to give them to Henry instead of a raw hide.  They don't last as long but I don't worry about them hurting his tummy. 

I think it is a great excuse to break out that Ron-co food dehydrator that you bought on a late night infomercial binge.
