Hi, I am new in this forum.
I disagree with people that force their dog (or their child) to became vegetarian.
Dogs and humans are omnivores, so in general they need also some meat to be in good health.
I know there are some cases of people that need a vegetarian or vegan diet to be in good health, like for example to avoid body inflammations or to fight against cancer.
But this is an individual problem.
A general problem is nowadays the quality of the meat on the market, usually contaminated with poisons.
A solution can be the biological agriculture, guaranteeing welfare to the animals in farms.
In my opinion humans should personalize their diet, depending on their individual health problems, or if they feel good in eating meat they should eat it.
Because we are animals too. Our natural instinct is to survive in this world. It is the nature law.
Personally when I was eating meat I was suffering from lots of inflammations, acne rosacea, tendinitis, degenerative arthritis, falling hair, insomnia, air and food allergies, iron deficit etc.
Almost 4 months ago I became vegetarian. My acne rosacea improved a lot, almost disappeared.
Now I try to avoid milk product too, and I think I feel better.
I only eat egg yolk ( I am allergic to the albumen), some fruits and vegetables, cereals.
I introduced some fish in the diet and I feel better: the fish contains vitamin D, and omega 3, to fight against inflammations.
I think it's cruel force a dog to be vegetarian. He could have some problems.
I suggest to the people doing this to read more books about diet and wellness for dogs.
This is a problem of being informed.
