Q. We started our dogs on a vegan living but are unsure of how much to feed for breakfast and dinner one is15lbs and a 70 lbs and 62lb
A. If you are feeding a commercial vegan diet, follow the recommendations on the bag. Monitor the weight and body condition of your dogs and adjust amounts according to age and activity. Make sure any vegan diet you feed has adequate amounts of taurine, L-Carnitine, B vitamins (especially B12) and vitamin D. Discuss supplementing these amino acids and vitamins with your veterinarian if necessary. A general estimate for feeding is 1 cup of food per 30lbs of body weight per day. Introduce the new diet gradually and reassess body condition and weight every month. Adjust amounts fed as needed.
