Vegetarian puppies?
Posted 6/16/08
I don't know if this suppose to be here or help thread. or a personal thread? .. ;; yea im dumb*
Sorry if it shouldn't be here, just lock it if it is and sorry ^^;;

anyways.

I have 2 puppy, one is 2 month old..one is my sister (n/a age) Anyway, my parents want him to be a vegetarian because me & my family are vegetarian...but.... is that even good for the puppy? i even searched to see and people said its unhealthy.. i even explained to my parents -- they won't listen.. they think they're RIGHT. i went to a store today..EVERY puppy food has meat in it.. (i just brought a dog treat and it has beef but i hide it so my parents wont be like *beep* ) I'm so worried that my puppy will be sick or something. My parents always give them oats and sometime they give them COW milk.. ya cow milk. I even went to pet store to buy them Dog milk which i shouldn't because i was suppose to buy Dog powder milk. sigh* my bad. and my dad got mad at me because it was so expensive.. its in a can and its $11 (CDN $ ) but hey atleast its better then COW milk.. so yeah i don't know what to do.. I told my parents to call the vet if they don't believe me..I'm so worried.

is it okay for puppies to eat vegetarian food?
what do you guys think?

My dog eats all food. I usually feed her bread though; that's her daily meal. However, she also eats cucumbers, etc. Although I think it's better to feed your dog meat once in a while...
I give my dog a bone or two at least once a week..and she's a healthy dog.

Unhealthy? I dont think so. I remember my friend had a Chuwawa?(dunno how to spell in english..) and he was feeding him veggies. The puppy didnt like it when he first got the pupply but it slowly adjust i guess. It never gotten sick or anything. But I DO believe pet food with meat in it is much more better then the ones without. Why is dad against you buying expensive? unless your using hes money to buy it. Then thats a different case. But you shouldnt worrie about your puppy eatting veggie. Its just that some puppy wont even eat it and therefore getting sick. Sorry for my bad english hope you can understand~

dogs are omnivores, but if ur dog is a vegetarian all it's life it will learn to survive without meat. just make sure your dog isn't missing out on any vitamins or amino acids (IE protein)

because its in a can..and its small so he think its expensive.. i think its expensive too.. but i thought it'll be better for them.. ^^
-- it is my fault though because im suppose to buy the powder one.
i agree its better with meat.. but they won't listen to me. its okay i understand what you're typing ^^ its just i'm worry that they will be ill or sick or skinny.. did ur friend's Chihuahua eat just vegetables? like no meat at all?

OH thats how you spell it Chihuahua thanks learn something new ^^ Most of the time yes He feed him veggie But he still does give him meat. Just not alot so the puppy wont be addicted to the taste of meat. If your puppy is still very young it shouldnt be hard to adjust him to veggie only and feed him a bone or two from time to time

I know people who feed their dogs tomatoes =0

But it's better to give them meat too, cuz I think it got some vitamines in it that are good for them =0

Dogs can eat any food but don't give them veggies all the time; Give him some meat sometimes.
