Vegetarian Diet for Dogs

This concept was brought to my attention when I watched the movie 'Seven Pounds' where Emily's dog only ate steamed broccoli and tofu (wtf?). The idea of 'good' people corresponded to vegans and vegetarians very subtly in the movie. I didn't know it was possible to have a vegetarian dog and wondered whether it was cruel and if the dogs would be malnutrition. So I googled Vegetarian dogs and and according to a vegan website, it is possible and healthy for a dog to be vegetarian and can reduce risks of 'cancers, strokes, heart attacks, and other common diseases and disorders.' Dogs are omnivores just like us, however certain guidelines has to be followed to ensure a balanced diet for a dog, here's a site with some tips from transitioning your dog into a vegetarian, enjoy - Click Here.
