“If you are not using a commercially prepared complete vegan dog food, with a formal analysis that you can check for nutritional completeness, be very careful that you are meeting a dog’s nutritional requirements.”

Nancy is an 18 year old Border Terrier cross with a very dedicated Dad who is happy to share her story to help others –

💚 Months after starting to feed Nancy on home-cooked meals without a supplement (and thinking that we had researched and understood her nutritional requirements), she started to become unwell. She had increasingly worrying congitive and physical symptoms that could have been put down to her age (doggy dementia).

💚 It turned out that she had insufficient Vitamin D in her diet, causing her to have problems with processing of available Calcium (which WAS already present in her vegan diet in sufficient quantities). Tested calcium levels in her blood samples were worryingly low.

💚 Some of our misunderstanding about Vitamin D was thinking that it was present in things such as tofu (it’s not in the UK, unless fortified). With calcium supplements (Just be Kind Supplement) and adding more Vitamin D into her diet (Omega 3 Algae oil with fortified Vit D3) she recovered completely. From this point on, we have always added a supplement to her meals.

Nancy is a happy 19 year old now so a huge well done to her Dad for all his research!!🐾

I started my dog, Cash, on a plant based diet 5 months ago, and the results have been amazing! He is an elderly dog with arthritic hips.
