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!? 😉 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...

Obligate carnivores are not obligated to eat meat - Study shows high Digestibility of plant ingredients in Cats

  A commercial pet food supplier, ADM Animal Nutrition, recently published a report recognizing validity of plant ingredients in cat food and advising their inclusion in cat food formulations. That's great news, but let's pause for a second. A commercial pet food supplier advocating for plant-based ingredients? Well, that's rather odd. Most pet food suppliers supply meat-based products and advocate the inclusion of meat-based constituents.

5 ways to explain to family and friends why my cat/dog is now vegan

Explaining to your friends and family that your cat (or dog) is now vegan is tough. Our family and friends don’t have the benefit of seeing the research we’ve done prior to switching, and they certainly don’t see all the pros and cons we’ve carefully weighted. They simply “know” that cats/dogs need meat. And they are not wrong, since that’s the very definition of an obligate carnivore to hunt prey and eat flesh. They may also think you’ve gone a little too far with the whole vegan lifestyle and saving animals 'thing'. Others may even start thinking you are downright crazy and call you animal abuser, since you “force your believes” on your poor cat/dog to eat only lettuce, tomatoes...

Where to Get Vegan Pet Food in US and Canada

Did you know there are at least 10 websites + 29 physical locations where you can get vegan pet food in the US & Canada? When Vecado ran a poll and asked what’s the most difficult thing about vegan pet food, pet guardians said availability. They said it’s hard to find stores that carry vegan pet food, and that shipping from online outlets is expensive. So we created this guide to help locate outlets (Stores and Online) to make vegan pet food easier to find. While vegan dog food is available in specialized stores, vegan cat food can be hard to find. The two tables below (one for Canada and one for the US) clearly show where to find vegan cat...
