"My 11-year-old Boxer/Staffie mix, Autumn, has been eating (and loving) V-Dog kibble for at least eight years. A couple weeks ago, she became very lethargic and stopped eating. We brought her to the emergency vet and learned that she had developed a high fever. They suspected an infection and prescribed her antibiotics. The vet insisted on sending us home with dog food which included chicken and rice because she believed it would be much easier for Autumn to digest once she started eating again. The following day, we reluctantly tried to feed her the chicken and rice (several times) and she refused to eat it. When we offered her the V-Dog, she ate it right up! We were thrilled that when given the choice, she wanted to remain vegan!"
