    Does anyone have any good ideas on how to transition a lab from meat to vegan?

    I'm planning to try a 30 day vegan diet before I decide I want to go vegan and who better than to motivate me with sticking to the diet than having my dog go vegan with me. But I wasn't so sure on where to begin.

    Don't make your dog go vegan or he'll end up trying to eat you, mate.

    Your dog may be planning to make you eat your own feces with him. Or maybe he'll insist on you having a go a licking your own balls.

    Vegan is actually a good way to feed your dog. I read a couple of testimonials and the dogs are super energetic and shiny, in fact many vets recommend a vegan diet.

    There were a couple of dogs in the village I was born in whose owners were vegetarian and had decided the dogs would be too. They used to follow the butcher's van down the road, he always made sure to have a couple of big meaty bones for them!

    You can get the same level of smug self-satisfaction and let your dog eat meat... As long as you don't eat anything!

    I don't think this is really acceptable, to be fair. You're welcome to make your own dietary decisions… but forcing your dog to go vegan with knowing it could potentially cause problems is unacceptable.

    Let me tell you a very difficult story. My dog, Amy got diabetes and we caught it too late. You know what happened to Amy? She went into ketosis and she passed away. Please, don't put your dog through something like that. The more you can prevent illness, the better.

    Good for you! (It's also ironic to see the people complaining about 'animal abuse' here).

    Here are a few resources for you:

    What a cruel and unusual punishment. I pity your dog.
    It's a lot more sustainable to make dogs eat plant-based calories especially with the hunger crisis. If my dog wants to eat meat there are worms in my back garden and the park. If you think about it insects have the highest nutrient animal product per calorie, I'm not stopping him from going for it if he wants to.

    I've done the research.

    If anything the diabetes was the result of a a diet high in fat. Not saying you caused your dogs diabetes because there are too many risk factors beyond your control but dogs thrive on vegan.

    How the hell would that be animal abuse? Cutting animals apart and giving it to another animal is considered animal abuse you less then smart
