A few years back, an episode of the quiz show we all love – QI, contestants were shown a photo of a typical happy family with 2 children, a car and a dog. *
The host Sandy Toksvig asked “What could this family do to reduce their carbon footprint?”
The contestant’s answers were “Get rid of the car” = WRONG ANSWER
The correct answer was “Get rid the dog!”
The contestants had no idea that the family dog, fed two predominantly animal meat-based meals a day, was contributing to more carbon emissions that either the car or the human family meals!
As animal lovers and knowing the importance of our pets in our modern lives; getting rid of the dog is definitely not an option to any of us. We are however running out of solutions to the global crisis of reducing our carbon emissions, so as vets and animal lovers and as a concerned family; we offer a perfect solution – feed your dogs a plant based diet!
The information offered on this site sets out to prove that a balanced plant-based meat free diet is not only going to help the environment; but it offers a far healthier lifestyle for your pet (and for you the owner).
