would be made available at a cost
competitive with standard nonvegan options. Together, then,
it was argued that there was no
legitimate reason not to make the
switch.

A flawed proposal:
Nutritional
inadequacies in vegan
dog food
Without opining on the philosophical considerations or countering the accusations regarding
safety of the current food, there
remains a fundamental flaw in
the proposal. Briefly, it does not
appear that the vegan foods being
considered are in fact nutritionally adequate, at least not for a
significant segment of the shelter
population. The manufacturers of
the vegan products being contemplated all expressly indicate in
their labeling that the products
are "complete and balanced," but
specifically just for adult maintenance. A quick look at the guaranteed analyses and ingredient lists
for these products confirm the
rationale for this limited life stage
designation, because there are
glaring deficiencies in these foods
for life stages other than adult
maintenance. As such, they would
not be nutritionally adequate for
any puppies or pregnant/nursing
mothers housed at the shelter. 
Also, considering the fact that
many animals coming into the
shelters may be sick, injured,
parasite-laden and/or malnourished already, a large number of
these animals would need a plane
of nutrient intake higher than
what would be normally ascribed
to a maintenance diet. Other
