Keep Your Animal Companion Healthy on a Vegan Diet
Have you ever heard of a vegan cat or dog? Did you know that plant-based diets could protect companion animals against chemical and heavy metal toxicity while avoiding the top eight food allergies in dogs? Dr. Armaiti May and Eco Dogs and Cats company owner Delta Farrington team up to explain why your dogs and cats can be healthier on a well-balanced vegan diet as compared to a conventional meat-based one. Dr. May will discuss necessary supplementation and appropriate monitoring of blood and urine for optimal health.
Armaiti May, DVM, shares her experience and knowledge with us as a practicing small animal veterinarian and vegan advocate. A graduate of the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. May trained in veterinary acupuncture through the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine and received certification in animal chiropractic from Options for Animals. She has offered spay and neuter services to disadvantaged communities locally and abroad, including Guatemala and Nicaragua, and founded the Veterinary Association for the Protection of Animals to educate the veterinary profession about the benefits of veganism and encourage veterinary schools to offer humane surgical teaching methods in their curriculum.
A vegan for twenty-seven years, Delta’s company grew out of her lifestyle and desire to offer healthy, humane, earth-friendly, and vegan products. She believes that we should not harm any animal to feed another, "I practice what I preach. My cat Simba has been a vegan since we adopted her and my dog Hannah for 10 years. Our household, including our three animal companions, eat natural and organic, humane and cruelty free, vegan foods."
