TOP #95: Is It Safe to Feed Dogs a Plant Based Diet?

I get a lot of questions from pet owners who are curious about feeding their pet a plant-based diet, either vegetarian or vegan. Is it safe for dogs to live on a meat-free diet? Can your pet get all of the nutrition that he needs from a plant-based diet alone? I feed our pets an omnivorous diet, so I was curious about a plant-based diet as well.

I asked one of my most popular podcast guests, Dr. Jennifer Adolphe, to come on Theory of Pets podcast again and discuss a vegetarian diet for dogs. She is the Senior Nutritionist for Petcurean, a premium pet food company. Dr. Adolphe has a PhD in companion animal nutrition and is a registered dietician.
