Switch4Good Podcast Tackles Vegan Dogs

June 5, 2020

Choosing the right doggie diet can be a dilemma for pet parents and may require asking yourself some tough ethical questions. Are dogs "meant" to eat meat? Will feeding my dog a vegan diet jeopardize their health? What does the science say?

Olympic medalist Dotsie Bausch and health coach Alexandra Paul host the Switch4Good podcast, where they interview experts in plant-based eating to discover ways to optimize our (and our pets') health and performance. Dotsie and Alexandra sat down with v-dog VP Lindsay Rubin to get the scoop on vegan diets for dogs, and they weren't afraid to ask the hard-hitting questions.
