Thanks Seaweed and congratualtions for this  thread .  I never thought  that my dogs ever consider not eating meat  but  we did a  slow transition and now they love their food.

Thanks for your input ofs. it is really useful for you to share your experiences. As seaweed says it would be great if you can continue updating about how your dogs are doing on their diet as time goes on.

An article by v-dog, the vegan dog food company regarding the Los Angeles Animal Services considering a vegan diet, it seems a decision is to be made in February.
