How Kitties Change Oceans

The unprecedented volume of pet food production for cats and dogs affects our oceans. In this post we shed some light on the issue. 2.9 million tons of fish is used to make fishmeal for pets. 2.5 million tons of raw fish is used for feeding cats directly. 16.2 million tons of fish is used to make fishmeal, which is used to feed Pigs, Cows and Chickens. Some of those Pigs, Cows and Chickens are fed to cats and dogs. Depleted ocean floor. Without a well-functioning ecosystem oceans are dying. Sick cat. Sick dog.   We thank everyone who made it their life's mission to protect the oceans and the marine life! Plant-based diet Online Assessment Gender, age, and prior...

Vegan Cat Food Study Dodd et al. 2021 BMC Veterinary Research

Cats, being obligate carnivores, have unique dietary requirements for nutrients most commonly found in dietary ingredients of animal origin. As such, feeding a diet devoid of animal-derived ingredients has been postulated as a possible cause of nutrient imbalances and adverse health outcomes. ūüĒ¨¬†At the outset, the researchers suspected that cats fed a plant-based diet would have a higher prevalence of negative health effects, such as heart disease dental disease skin disease hormone problems stomach and liver problems urinary problems eyesight problems kidney problems However, contrary to the expectations, cat owners who participated in the study, perceived no body system or disorder to be at particular risk when feeding a plant-based diet to cats.¬† This conclusion is based on the comparison...

Interesting Facts about Taurine

Taurine is a vital component in vegan pet food. Taurine is an amino acid (2-aminoethanesulfonic acid) - a chemical that acts as building block of proteins. It was discovered in 1846 by English chemist Edmund Ronalds. Taurine is involved in many fundamental biological processes of cats and dogs (and humans too), such as fetal development and growth. It is essential for cardiovascular function, development and function of skeletal muscles, vision, and the central nervous system. Dogs are able to produce their own taurine from sulfur-containing amino acids (primarily cysteine, but also methionine). For this reason, taurine is not considered an essential amino acid for dogs.1 Cats, by contrast, lack the enzyme necessary to produce taurine and must therefore acquire it from their...

If cats and dogs had New Year Resolutions...

Did you know that cats, and especially dogs, set out New Year resolutions the same way as¬†humans do!?¬†ūüėČ Well, to be honest we don't know if that's really the case, but we thought it would be fun to watch our furry friends fulfilling the same New Year Resolutions as we do! Can you guess which resolution is being accomplished in each image?¬† Comment below with¬†your guesses and image numbers! As a big challenge for 2021, we¬†encourage you to save 100 animals by switching your pets to a vegan diet. Over their lifetime cats and dogs consume hundreds if not thousands of animals. By switching their diet¬†you save lives of chickens, sheep, cows and tuna, while also giving your pet some...

What's Natural? Comment by Veterinarian Dr. Armaiti May

In her interview Dr. May (DVM) explained that there are many common practices for cats that do not happen in nature. For example: > Living in a house or an apartment VS. roaming the wilderness > Regular eating intervals provided by pet guardians VS. gorging in anticipation of long periods of hunger/starvation in nature > Eating pre-made dry kibble or wet food in cans VS. hunting mice, lizards, critters etc. in nature > Health checks at the vet’s office VS. taking care of own wounds/illnesses in nature > Being spayed or neutered VS. intact cats searching for a mating partner This list illustrates that although some common practices do not happen in nature, they are are widely used for the benefits...
