A vegan diet for a carnivore?

HSUS has it’s own brand of vegan diet for your pet, but for some pets this diet is a form of animal cruelty.  The dog food brand called “Humane Choice” is made in Uruguay and shipped 5000 miles to feed American pets.  It’s not even USDA approved.  But the real kicker is that it is short two essential amino acids that can only be attained by eating meat.  The absence of these amino acids causes an enlarged heart and the potential for heart problems in dogs and cats.

It’s obvious that America’s farmers care a lot more about the animals they raise than HSUS does.  Who would feed an animal a diet like that.
