The meat-heavy diets of our companion animals have a huge carbon pawprint. While cats are compulsory carnivores, dogs are omnivores and can live — in fact, thrive — on a fully plant-based diet. (Case in point: a British border collie named Bramble was fed as a Vegan and lived to 25 — the Guinness record for dog longevity.) On this episode, Diana Laverdure-Dunetz, a canine nutritionist with a Masters degree in animal science, shares the how’s and why’s of feeding dogs in ways that will make them happy and healthy without animal products.
