Can dogs really be vegan?

Yes. ) Through thousands of years of evolution alongside humans, dogs are omnivores (not carnivores!) and they've evolved to digest starches 28 times better than wolves. Dogs can get all of their nutrients from plant-based sources and are often healthier, leaner and more energetic when consuming vegan food. Other benefits of feeding your pup a vegan diet can include elimination of allergies, better oral hygiene, improved skin/coat, and weight management.
