Assuage the owner's morals by denying the dog the food they were designed for.
Removing a food from an animals diet that the species has depended on for thousands of years is unlikely to provide any benefit at all.
The only benefit is if your dog has food allergies and you are feeding them this way under the direction of a vetrinarian.
Otherwise, dogs are omnivores (and at that, mostly on the carnivorous end of the spectrum). Feeding dogs a vegetarian diet denies them essential nutrients and is not healthy.
There is no benefit. Dogs need meat, bottom line. Just as any carnivore, canines need fresh meats. I feed my dog liver and kidney as well as veggies. She prefers the bloody meats.
