This is Degan. He has been a vegan for four years. He is healthy, sleek, and energetic. People find it hard to believe that he’s nine years old — he’s so playful (that) they think he’s a very young dog!
I’ve been vegan for about six years now. My reason for changing my diet was ethical, so it soon bothered me that my dog had to continue (I thought!) to support the slaughterhouse industry. I didn’t think I had a choice. However, through the PETA organization, I discovered that dogs could be vegetarians and that there was even a how-to book out on the subject. I was thrilled! Not knowing anyone else who shared my concern about the slaughterhouse industry, it was wonderful to discover other people felt as I did.
