I am a vegetarian, but I still buy food for my dog with meat. I wish there was vegetarian dog food that still includes all elements necessary to keep my dog healthy.

mm yes, it is indeed a bit strange, but than again, if he does not know it, and it tastes like meat and all elements are in it? who cares? 'brokjes' are also not really nature. Anyway, I have not tried it yet. Maybe I'll first try the 'scharrelvleesbrokjes' alternative :)

Actually, as dogs grow older it is healthier for them to eat a vegetarian diet. I have asked 3 vets so far and they have all agreed.

Why would you subject your dog eating habits to your wishes ? Isnt a dog a natural meat eater? I have a cat and he always jumps after birds and mouses not just to play with them but to eat them aswell. Its there natural instinct I would never in a million years make my cat eat vegetarian stuff just because I do the same thing. + your dog cant state his opion about liking or not liking the food. I actually thing there is a line and this wish crossed that.

Dear Saskia,
Dogs are carnivourous and don't have the equipment to process vegetables, since they are supposed to eat herbivores.
Although debatable, people can eat both (i.e. are omnivores) but carnivores cannot without seriious health risks.
