A growing number of pet owners is interested in feeding their pets plant-based diets.
A surprising number of pet owners, particularly those who are vegan, are interested in feeding their pets a plant-based diet.
People have been hearing about how vegan diets are linked to lowered risks of cancer and other health benefits in humans. There is also growing concern about the environmental impact of animal agriculture.
Previous studies have also shown that pet owners tend to offer the same kind of diets to their dogs and cats that they adopt for themselves
While only a small proportion of pet owners are currently feeding plant-based diets to their pets, it is safe to say that interest in the diets is likely to grow.
