Tofu is probably good for dogs with food alergies. I like Tofu, Mommy gives me some of hers when she gets chinese food. I don't eat it on a regular basis though.

Many people feed their dogs an all vegetarian or vegan diet.

i don't think i like the idea of my dog being a vegitarian. i mean, dogs eat meat in the wild so why would you cut it out entirely. i understand that some people don't like killing animals for food and such, but animals are healthier when eating what they developed to eat. i don't even understand why people become vegiterians/vegans any way, aside from the cruelty thing, but you can buy free range or wild caught meat. i mean humans are supposed to eat meat, along with the other food groups, since we're omnivorous. but i'm done with my rant so....

Free range/Organic meats arent always cruelty free....my mommas been vegan for 6 years and shes super healthy! she feeds me food that has meat in it though. because she doesnt have a job at the moment and is budgeting.

Dogs NEED meat in their diet. Or atleast fish/seafood. I understand that some people are vegitarians, but dogs should not be. In the wild, that is basicly their whole diet! Dogs are carnivores, meat is their number one diet item. I agree with Diesel. Not about the vegan part though. I understand some people don't like eating meat, period. Whether it was wild or caged. I, myself, am not a vegan, but hats off to those who are! I would try, but the beef jerky and meatballs would catch me! smile

That's another personal matter. The fact is dogs have done fine on vegan and vegetarian diets and some people think it's great. What dogs should or shouldn't eat is up to the owner to decide. Many people don't see the right in killing or abusing one animal for another. I personally don't agree with these diets, but I can see where they are coming from and if it works for their dogs it's all fine and well to me. I just wouldn't recommend it or use it myself.

Dogs will probably need protien supplements on a vegan diet, right?
