Are Gorillas Vegetarian? (No, But Close…)

A

It’s something that most of us never think of. But then, someone mentions it – gorillas are basically vegetarians. And that’s more or less true, the bulk of their diets consist of plants. What Do Gorillas Eat? Gorillas are fairly smart, but they don’t eat vegetarian out of ethical/logical reasons, but do so by instinct. They eat a lot of leaves, stems, bamboo shoots, and even some...

Being a Vegan While Feeding Your Cat Meat: Is It Okay?

B

Once I got my head around some of the basics of veganism, I was left with a dilemma: How do I feed my 2 cats? I didn’t love (and still don’t) the idea of feeding them their typical meat-based food. But, it doesn’t seem like cats can be vegan right now either (at least the proof isn’t there). Which means you have 2 options: give up your cat, or feed it meat. Well, giving up your cat...

Are Cows Friendly? Here’s What You Should Know

A

Most people don’t know much about cows other than that beef comes from them. But those that know the better know that most cows are just like big dogs. They’re friendly, playful, and many even enjoy being pet. However, that doesn’t mean that you should try to play with cows. Cows Are Friendly, But Can Be Dangerous Just as a refresher, cows are female and bulls are male. While bulls are...

Are Pigs Smarter Than Dogs? (Review of Pig Intelligence Studies)

A

A few years back, I started questioning whether it was ethical to eat meat or not. This led me (and most other people) to thinking about the difference between pets and animals raised for food. You’d never harm a hair on a dog, so there must be a difference between dogs and say a pig, right? I believed one of those differences at the time could be intelligence. In my mind at...

The Best Vegan Dog Treats to Buy in 2019 (That are healthy!)

T

After doing several hours of research to find the best vegan dog foods, I turned my sights to treats. Treats are a great way to reward or spoil your dog, and there are quite a few vegan options available. These treats are great for dogs with allergies (or food sensitivities), since the most common sensitivities are with animal products like beef, chicken, and dairy. I’ve come up with this list of...

Halo Holistic Garden Vegan Dog Food Review (Wet and Dry)

H

Halo might be best known for being co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres, but they make really high quality products as well. Halo holistic is Halo’s line of vegan dog food, and is one of the best vegan dog foods you’ll find. However, one big drawback is the price. Does the quality of the food justify the price? That’s what this review is for. We’ll look at the dry kibble version first, and...

V-Dog Kinder Kibbles Review: Is V-Dog the Best Vegan Dog Food?

V

V-Dog might be the most famous vegan dog food brand there is. It’s a family owned business that’s exclusively been making vegan dog food since 2005. If they weren’t good at it, they’d be out of business. V-Dog only makes dry food, in 2 variations: kinder kibble, and kinder kibble mini-bites (for smaller dogs). Both are intended for adult dogs. At the moment, they don’t make any wet...

Natural Balance Vegetarian Dry and Canned Dog Food [Review]

N

Natural Balance’s vegetarian formula is known for being high quality while still relatively affordable. It comes in both dry and wet food, and is rated #1 overall in our list of the best vegan dog foods (for both wet and dry). This is mainly due to a combination of the cost, and that almost all dogs seem to like it (even picky ones). It’s not a perfect dog food, but it...
