News from the Natural World: Dog on vegan diet asks the question that has been on every Canine’s lips.

But that would require a sensible and intelligent human capable of learning and common sense. Most Dogs don’t have that luxury. Most humans are bad enough with their own diets let alone controlling a balanced one for their Dog. But what of the Dogs themselves? What are their chief concerns about going on a vegan diet?
