Each year, animal shelters across the country take in an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals. Sadly, approximately 2-4 million of these pets are euthanized due to lack of space, funding, and other issues. Adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue organization not only saves a life, it opens up more space for other needy pets and increases awareness of the homeless pet issue in your community.
As wonderful as it is to adopt a rescue pet, bringing them into our homes isn’t always happily-ever-after. Many pets have been abused, neglected, or abandoned and may have a difficult time adjusting to life in a loving home. Although it’s natural to feel confused and dismayed by your pet’s undesirable behaviors, it’s important to keep in mind that most problems can be rectified with patience, love, and consistency (and sometimes professional help).
It’s been well documented that a plant-based diet is healthier for humans. Many veterinarians and veterinary professionals are vegan or vegetarian for health, environmental, or animal cruelty reasons. Could this also be a good approach to pet nutrition? The Pet Experts at Wheaton Animal Hospital are exploring vegetarian and vegan diets to learn if our pets can benefit as much as we do.
