Three weeks ago we adopted a Westie puppy, and started right away on Dr. Harvey's (as that's what our 3 year-old Boxer eats). The food's directions say to add cottage cheese or yogurt for puppies, so I called Dr. Harvey to get an alternative and ask if it is absolutely necessary. He was very kind and helpful, however, told me that he discourages vegan pets :/
We have kept our pups vegan, as we honestly think it's best for them (if we think it's best for us, why would we feed them any different??). I'm not sure if you are aware of Dr. Harvey's views, but perhaps you could get in touch with him and share why you feel it works for pets of vegan families. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I found it a bit discouraging that he recommended I feed my dogs meat, especially since you give him so much business.
Last, thanks for all the work you've done for animals and helping humans become more compassionate and healthy :) You offer such great support, and I have bought your book for several friends and family members who have opted to change their lifestyle. Thanks for rocking and keep it up :)
We have been feeding our dogs V-Dog and have just bought Dr. Harvey's.
I would be interested in details about amounts and choices of vegan protein.
The info with the dog food is very vague in this area.
