This does not mean that you cannot make your pet a vegetarian. A dog can be converted to a vegetarian. A cat, on the other hand, is difficult to make a vegetarian.
Things to consider
- Eggs should be given to a dog on a vegetarian diet.
- It is a better idea to feed a commercial vegetarian diet than to give a homemade vegetarian diet. This is because the commercial diet is more balanced.
- The digestive tract of dogs is short, so dogs cannot digest green leafy vegetables. This is why when a carrot is fed to a dog it comes out as it is.
- The dog’s jaw, teeth and short gut is made to eat meat and not vegetables or grain. Therefore, The process of converting to a vegetarian diet should be slow.
- A vegetarian diet should not feed to puppies or dogs less than one year old. Dogs should be given a meaty diet or commercially available good quality diet for the entire growing period.
- Care should be taken to convert them to a vegetarian diet. If any adverse reaction or food allergy is observed, they should be turned back to normal dog food.
