Dogs can be fed a vegetarian diet as a healthy alternative to traditional dog food, an article in DNA India claims.
This type of diet is becoming more common in India, where many owners feed their dogs a combination of rice, vegetables, tofu and other vegetarian items. For those who prefer a vegetarian diet for their dogs, Pedigree introduced an all-vegetarian line for adult dogs.
"At least 3% of our nearly 600 clients insist on vegetarian or Jain food for their dogs," said Wasiff Khan, owner of Homecare Dog Food Pvt. Ltd., a home delivery service for dogs. "Even most non-vegetarians don't serve meat to their dogs during Navratri."
