Sue (Bea’s owner) sent us details about her sweet Bea – a 12 year old Golden Retriever who suffered from arthritis, loved any treats, ate Harringtons and went for a 30 minute walk (or swim) daily.
She then followed it up with an e-mail to us that we found so touching and with her permission are sharing with you –
This is beautiful Bea. I’ve been vegan myself since 2006 and always wanted to do the same for my dogs but to be honest I was listening to too many people who were telling me how cruel I was being. Having lost my husband and two dogs in the last couple of years I no longer listen to others but do my own research. I just want to do the very best for the best companion anyone could wish for.Kind regardsSue

Sue is exactly the sort of owner we are determined to support and help as best we can with as much reassurance as possible that feeding a balanced plant-based diet is indeed one of the healthiest and kindest ways to feed our pets.
