My Healthy Vegan Pekingese
For the longest time, my six year old Pekingese had colitis problems. She couldn't tolerate any dog food and a natural vet recommended she go on a raw ground meat/bone diet which was made by a nearby store specializing in making this type of dog food. I reluctantly listened to this vet because he told me she was allergic to grain. I am a vegan but thought maybe dogs need meat. I would lightly steam the meat/bone mixture in fear of bacteria. After she had been on this regimen for at least a year I noticed she started vomiting a lot and would smell the food and walk away. She kept getting thinner. I stopped feeding her this regimen and decided to start making her brown rice and collard greens and see how she would do. To my surprise, she started getting better, but I knew it didn't have all the nutrients needed. My new vet recommended I find a dog food. My pet store attendant then told me that some dogs are allergic to the protein in foods, which made sense since my doggy was doing better on the rice/veggie diet I was making for her. He recommended I try Natural Balance Vegan Formula. So I started my dog on the Natural Balance canned food and gradually introduced her to the dry vegan kibble. To my surprise, she has not thrown up again and has gained her weight back to 11 lbs. She was previously down to 9 lbs, which is a lot for a little dog. She also no longer has a colitis problem. She is very energetic now! I am very happy and so is my now VEGAN doggy! Thank you Natural Balance for this formula! You saved my dogs life!
