Updated www.VegePets.info: the facts about vegetarian cats and dogs

Can cats safely go vegetarian? What about dogs? Is it natural? Are commercial meat-based diets natural? What are the health hazards, and how can they be avoided? Are there any health benefits?

I'm an experienced cat and dog veterinarian with a special interest in vegetarian companion animal diets. Following extensive research, including a review of the relevant biomedical literature, I've created this website to assist all who wish to gain a sounder understanding of the health and nutritional issues associated with meat-based and vegetarian companion animal diets. Included here are:

-- detailed summaries of the health and nutritional implications of feeding both meat-based and vegetarian companion animal diets;

-- advice on smoothly transitioning cats and dogs onto vegetarian diets;

-- advice on safeguarding the health of vegetarian animals -- particularly cats;

-- short summaries of all of the above (here and here);

-- links to suppliers of vegetarian pet foods and nutritional supplements.

I hope you enjoy my site. If you think this information deserves a wider audience, please consider distributing the flyer, leaflet or article. Thank you for visiting.
