A MEET & TREAT is a perfect opportunity for you to have an impact not only on your community, but also on the climate. Please watch the hugely inspiring Ted talk clip below as Cameron Hepburn puts into context exactly what we wish to convey with a MEET & TREAT where small interventions can trigger massive change.
Very basically, you make the delicious homemade vegan food or Umameo treats for your dog and when you are out on a dog walk with the treats in your pocket, you meet with your friends or fellow dog walkers and share them amongst their dogs (knowing they are safe for any allergic or food intolerant dogs out there:)
You could make the food or the highly nutritious treats and sell them on Facebook Marketplace. This is an ideal environment to teach people in your community about the health of a plant-based diet on dogs with your own dog as an example and let them at least just try their dogs on this hugely sustainable healthy way of eating. It is also an ideal opportunity to meet other vegan dog owners in your area and share recipes and foods that work for their pets.
How true Cameron Hepburn’s words are in this very inspiring Ted talk – “Small changes can have big impacts” – please watch it
With our MEET & TREATS, let us be the ones who stand up first and trigger that change in our community!
We are so passionate about plant-based feeding in dogs, that we want to support you and hopefully make it affordable for you
Only by convincing vets that it is the way forward, will we together have any success as plant-based feeders of ensuring that it becomes a very viable and superior option to feeding our dogs
The maned wolf really blows the theory of our pet dogs needing meat in their diet completely out the water
We have Bramble the dog who wanted to live forever as proof that vegan diets help our pets live longer healthier lives
An online survey in 2019 revealed that around one in three owners may be willing to consider switching to a vegan diet for their pet in the future
This is one of our biggest concerns as pet owners that we are not getting the balance just right for the health of our pet
When we choose to change our dogs onto a vegan diet, worrying about what other people think is a huge concern to us
You are being a compassionate owner by feeding your dog a plant-based diet
The change will be for the better as plant-based food may mean that your dog poos more but it also means that…..
Meat contains dioxins, artificial hormones and TMAO dangerous to not only our pets but to us too
No dogs do not need eat to eat meat from another animal, they need protein and they can get an ever better protein source from plants
Although there does not appear to be any research done on this topic, owners of dogs on plant-based diets do report that their pets appear happier and calmer
