As someone who follows a plant based diet, when I first got my cat, the thought of putting him on a plant based diet too definitely crossed my mind. Luckily, I make sure to check everything with my veterinarian, and I am skilled in finding good quality information, so I never ended up doing this.
There’s so much content on the internet, including posts from pet parents who feed their cats/dogs a plant based diet. As I say in pretty much every single one of these blog-style posts, EVERY animal is different and therefore has different needs. If you’re thinking about making a change in your pet’s lifestyle (such as adopting a plant based diet) the best thing you can do is check in with your veterinarian to discuss if your choice is the right one for your pet :)
