Meg OVeganMegane Vegans who feed their pets meat u guys have gotta see the bigger picture We shouldn't support animal exploitation w our money That's it 71316 1050 PM aer @thelilmermade @VeganMegane yes um so how would I feed my cat? 71316 1102 PM lI VIEW TWEET ACTIVITY Meg @VeganMegane @thelilmermade is your cat male or 7m female? check out this website for more info vegancatscom veganfaqphp Meg @VeganMegane @thelilmermade I know you want to best for your companion and I won't deny that there are risks but you can minimise those risks! 5m someoneintheshadow456 nautica-the-savant marbledmartin thegrumpymathematician nunyabizni sarcasmsuitsme skypig357 iswearimnotnaked hi hello CATS!!!! CANNOT!!!! BE VEGAN!!!!! i cannot believe i have to fucking say this dogs are omnivore and IF YOUR VET APPROVES your pooch MAY be able to go on an APPROVED!!!!! commercial vegan dog food like the brand “v-dog” which has all the essential vitamins protein etc the oldest record winning dogs have been vegan cats are CARNIVORE and cannot fucking live on a vegan diet a vet would laugh in your face and probably find some way to have your pet taken away from you because you’re obviously not fit to have an animal if you think you can feed a cat a diet based on your own ethics i’m vegan but this is so fucking harmful it’s about minimizing your harm not putting your animals on risky diets in an attempt to be perfect DON’T FUCKING DO THIS TO YOUR PETS Idiot people If you see someone you know doing this report them for animal cruelty and neglect ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This posts and many of the notes on it are bothering me Ladies gentlemen esteemed colleagues from outside the confines of the gender binary gather ‘round Let’s throw some science in this joint 1 Humans Humans are not cats Humans are not dogs One would think this obvious but people have a tendency to attempt such interspecies comparisons when discussing diet Humans are order omnivora we have essentially evolved in a manner that attempts to give us as much dietary flexibility as possible We do however require a substance called B12 or cobalamin which is extremely important for brain and nervous system functions as well as the synthesis of DNA and the construction of red blood cells We cannot produce this vitamin ourselves–no animal plant or fungus can The enzymes used in cobalamin production are essentially unique to bacteria and archaea–some species of which hang out in the digestive tracks of other animals We get cobalamin in a roundabout way from fish shellfish meat eggs milk and dairy products While there is no naturally-occurring vegan source of the vitamin that has been demonstrated effective in a human study of statistically significant sample size effective synthetic forms do exist and can be used as a substitute Cyanocobalamin is one of the most common and is frequently found in fortified foods and vitamins In short Humans are omnivores Humans have evolved for dietary flexibility including viable vegetarianism Humans did not evolve for veganism be extremely suspicious of people who tell you that we did as they are lying but due to modern technologies veganism is also a viable diet that humans can thrive on should they so choose 2 Cats Cats are order carnivora Cats require amongst other things an amino acid called taurine We’re not quite sure how exactly but we know that it’s extremely important to feline heart wall tissue retinal tissue and brain tissue amongst other things Cats cannot manufacture their own taurine and must get it from other sources–primarily shellfish fish and meat Taurine breaks down when heated so feeding your cat a home-cooked diet rich in this foods is also not necessarily a good idea talk to a vet Secondary read SUPPLEMENTARY NOT A SOLE SOURCE OF TAURINE sources of taurine for cats include dairy eggs and seaweed- or yeast-based taurine supplements In nature cats don’t really need to worry about getting enough taurine because as you may have noticed taurine sources are indeed the things that cats tend to catch and eat However a cat that lives in a human household is dependent on humans for food and sometimes humans are utter fucktrucks In short Cats are obligate carnivores Their primary source of nutrition is meat They must eat meat preferably as close to raw as possible They have digestive tracks designed for digesting meat There are veganvegetarian cat kibbles on the market Do not buy them Your cat is neither vegan nor vegetarian and if you adjust their diet as if they were you are a terrible person who is harming and possibly killing your pet You suck End of discussion 3 Dogs Dogs are slightly more nuanced here They are facultative carnivores–meaning that they optimally should eat meat but can survive on other things if resources are scare Dogs also need the amino acid taurine but can technically manufacture it themselves if the proper building blocks are in their diets They also need vitamin D–D3 is preferable but D2 can be used to some degree Dogs are somewhere between us the true omnivore and the cat the true carnivore A vegan or vegetarian diet will keep a dog alive certainly but is unlikely to allow your pet to thrive as it lacks the recommended nutrients You should probably be feeding your dog meat The exception here–some dogs are allergic to conventional dog foods or find symptoms of certain diseases alleviated by vegetarianism In this case a veterinarian not you layperson I mean an actual trained veterinarian may determine that the benefits of putting your dog on a vegetarianvegan diet outweigh those of feeding your dog meat This is relatively rare but does occasionally happen And no actually the oldest dog is not vegan–Bramble is the only dog on this list that I found had some indication of veganism The oldest dog on record is an Australian Kelpie named Maggie who was not vegan It is more likely that Bramble lived that long despite the veganism not because of it In short If a vet thinks that your dog may be allergic to dog foodrequire a special diet and recommends you try feeding it a vegetarianvegan diet listen to your vet Otherwise? Dogs are carnivora They do need vegetables and other sources of nutrients but their optimal fuel as it were is meat Your dog needs meat to be happy Fucking feed your dog Now I did manage to find two veterinarians who disagree with every other study I dug up and the American Veterinary Medical Association Their articles are here and here They don’t really have sources and are essentially wholly dependent on anecdotal evidence “my dog is a vegetarian and hasn’t died!” but for those of you data cherry-pickers reading this there you go As a rule dogs and cats need meat If that makes you uncomfortable that is your problem not theirs If you try to implement a vegan or vegetarian diet for your pets because you implemented one for yourself you shouldn’t have those pets That is animal abuse By the way those of you not feeding your cats and non-allergic dogs the food they need to survive and thrive? What the fuck is wrong with you? Do you not love your pets? TLDR If you do not want a pet that must be fed meat you should under no circumstances acquire a cat or a dog Thank you for your time Rebloobing for the more detailed info on B12 and obligate carnivore vs true omnivores Always reblog Dear Vegans If you’re not willing to at least feed your dogs and cats commercial food get a rabbit or a parrot Meme
