The guinea pigs and the rabbit just a salad type thing along with their pellets. The cat eats whatever she wants in addition to her weight control catfood. The dog is on Natural Choice for Sensitive Stomachs.

Mr. Sun, Do I assume you have a rabbit or Guinea Pig?</div>
</div>
<br><br><br><br><br>
I "have" a rabbit. He used to live in a shelter and now he lives here.<br><br><br><br>
If I had a dog I would definately feed him/her a vegan diet. If I had a cat I would seriously consider a vegan diet. I read <i>Obligate Carnivore</i> last year and it's an awesome book. Jed Gillen describes how easy it is to have a vegan dog. Veganizing cats takes a lot more work and if one isn't diligent the cat could suffer and that would be cruel indeed.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Urinary tract problems are extremely common in cats and, because of the relative acidity of meat to vegetable protein, many vegan cats suffer from them.<br><br><br><br>
Although we have been giving advice for some time on how these problems can be minimized while still feeding a completely vegan diet, we have found that the vast majority of our customers have not been following this advice.<br><br><br><br>
Unless you are very committed to following the advice outlined below, we therefore recommend that you mitigate the risk of urinary tract problems by feeding males cats only a 25-75% vegan diet and females a 50-100% vegan diet.</div>

ETA: I meant to write "if I had a cat when I became veg*n". I wouldn't get a cat now because I don't think I could be as diligent as Jed Gillen who was able to find healthy vegan diets for all his cats (some of them were trickier than others). I would consider getting a shelter-rescued dog, though. But not until the rabbit goes onto rabbit heaven. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I think my bird is vegan now. Are Ritz Crackers vegan? He used to eat goldfish, but I don't have any around the house any more. Mmmm.... Pepperidge Farms... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br><br><br><br>
Mostly, he sticks to seeds, though. I've tried switching him to the healthier pellets, but he's a picky eater. At his age (almost 21, which is very old for a cockatiel), I'm not going to be able to teach him new dietary habits.<br><br><br><br>

Rabbits get mostly hay, and 3-5 times a week some bread, banana and apple. And regular pellets.<br><br>
Cat gets regular cat food. Dry food is Hills natures best, and he gets a pack of wet food a day. He likes whiskas.

cockatiel eating goldfish?<br><br><br><br>
wtf?<br><br><br><br>
ohhhhhhhh you mean the cheese crackers ohhh lol. I thought you meant real goldfish. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lipsrsealed2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sealed:"><br><br><br><br>
But still, cheese? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/worried.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":worried:"><br><br><br><br>
try carrots, or broccoli, or spinach some time<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:"><br><br>
I cared for a cockatiel many years ago, and he looooved carrots - tore em apart. He's actually ~12 years old now - my mother now cares for him (for various reasons).<br><br><br><br><br><br>
and 21 is amazing for a cockatiel - scratch his head for me!

the cats that live with me (one is mine, one is my sisters) eat 'regular' cat food, both tinned and dry. I definitely understand the arguments for feeding cats a vegan diet or working towards doing so, but at the moment that's not really possible. When me and Molly (my cat) move out I want to do a lot of reading on the subject and consider it carefully. If I can't feed her vegan, I would like to move her towards the most humane diet I can.

My dogs use to eat raw, but I got sick of them throwing up undigested bone in the middle of the night on the carpet! Now they get Natural balance organic chicken and rice.

Yep. I bought a 5 cubic ft (I think it's 5) freezer chest just for their stuff, since I buy it in bulk.
