"HALO" Pet Food Is Part Of The Discussion To Sell Their Vegan Kibble Dog Foods To LA County Shelters.
"Halo" Confirms They ARe In TAlks To Sell Their Vegan Dog Food
From David Yaskulka at "Halo": I can confirm there is discussion about feeding their sheltered dogs vegan food, and Halo has been part of the discussion.
The city currently pays $.87 per pound for Canidae Life Stages
The decision isn't being made because of cost. The Washington Post reported that "The city pays $0.87 per pound for Canidae Life Stages, and the only vendor contracted to the city charges four times as much for a vegan product, it said. What’s more, Prupas wrote, a vegan diet higher in fiber could “lead to increased fecal bulk and frequency of bowel movements,” leading to more cleanup work for shelter staffers."
Why More Poop You Ask?
Think about that. Do some research. Why do dogs have increased fecal bulk when on a vegan diet?
