I watched a programme on BBC 1 one Sunday night where Chris Packham goes on a favourite walk in the Hampshire countryside and he speaks about his life and his memories. I was totally entranced in that hour as he spoke with such complete honesty about how the deaths of the beloved Poodles he has had over the years have impacted his life.
We can all connect with this and I know that the loss of our pets have also deeply affected me. This programme and his words prompted me to action. I have always held Chris Packham in such high regard with everything that he stands for, so I sent him some top quality vegan food food to try on Sid and Nancy who I knew were raw fed even though Chris is a staunch vegan.
When he replied with this e-mail “Arielle
Thanks for the package
We’ve tried the tins and both of the very picky poodles wolfed it down! Makes a change!
We will try the rest now we’ve done the photo
Best Chris” and he published the photo to all his social media accounts; I don’t think he realised what an enormous environmental impact he would have!
Suddenly we had SO many dogs wanting to try plant-based and keen to transition and let their own dogs try the food that Sid and Nancy ‘wolfed down’.
Shown below are some of the dogs who signed up for our top sample boxes in just 24 hours after Chris Packham’s post!! If these loved dogs transition to plant based and stick with it over their lifetime, the saving of animal life and the reduction in environmental impact from them being 100% meat-based (and many raw fed) to now being plant-based is enormous! (and we haven’t even touched on the impact that these dogs going plant-based would have on their health:)
I returned home emotionally drained, but also feeling so much more positive about the future of plant-based dog nutrition with the contacts that were made
I have never seen such a manic reaction from two lazy dogs, they scoffed Give A Dog A Bean as if this was the first meal they’ve had in a long time
Without wanting to sound dramatic, Solo Vegetal has literally saved and brought our boy back
Yet another paper providing evidence that a nutritionally sound plant-based diet WILL benefit our dogs
“Boston loved the tinned food and woofed it down in one go. It’s actually the best smelling dog food ever. Impressive stuff!”
