I am thinking about getting a malamute husky and wondering your thoughts about we being mostly vegan
I think it's great if you and the other human members of your family are vegan. However, dogs are carnivores and I personally feel that it would be unfair and unhealthy to try to make a dog be vegan or even vegetarian.
Look into what food you'd want to feed the dog and make sure it's something you can deal with. There are some high quality foods that use only free range meats. Also you could consider a raw or home cooked diet, using only free range organic meats if that's something you're concerned about.
I know they make vegetarian dog foods but I'd never use them for my dog or recommend them. If you are against feeding an animal meat, then I'd recommend you consider other pet options instead of getting a carnivore. If you are willing to feed meat, then I'd say look into some of the more humane options for meat based dog foods and decide before you get the dog whether or not it's diet is something that you feel comfortable with.
Agree, except that dogs are omnivores, not carnivores - still, they need meat in their diet.
Scientifically dogs are classified as carnivores.
You are incorrect. Dogs are omnivores, but since omnivores are also carnivores, they could be said to be carnivores as well.
I have Malamutes. Malamutes are not huskies but are cousins to that breed. My dogs are very active and have huge appetites. I wouldn't think a vegan diet would work with this type of breed.
They are a northern, natural breed ( not man made ) that evolved under sub-arctic temperatures where their diet consisted mostly of fish, whale meat and game. They also have a different type of digestion system and are prone to stomach and skin problems. My dogs have problems digesting wheat and corn products. I feed them a salmon based kibble. I would suggest getting a breed that would be more adaptable to a vegan diet.
