"Our pets are fortunate to have our protection and love, but not all of them are so lucky. Many animals right now are
suffering to meet the animal protein needs of our society.
"Fortunately, today we have nutritionally complete options, such as v-dog, that allow us to feed and keep our pets
healthy without harming others. I also think that it is a duty of all of us who love animals and the planet to minimize
the suffering of others and reduce the environmental impact that we produce with our food. The food that our dogs and cats
consume produces more than 64 million tons of carbon dioxide a year that's the equivalent of driving more than 13 million
