MY VEGAN HERO

My vegan hero is Leslie Cross; an early pioneer of the vegan movement and the man who is responsible for bringing about a literal definition of veganism that equated it with animal rights. Although the first Vegan Society was formed by Donald Watson and 5 members in 1944, it was not until 1949 that Leslie J. Cross pointed out that the society lacked an official definition. He then suggested: “the principle of the emancipation of animals from exploitation by man”. This was later clarified to “seek an end to the use of animals by man for food, commodities, work, hunting, vivisection, and by all other uses involving exploitation of animal life by man”. The definition was again changed in 1979. 

In spring of 1951, Leslie Cross wrote an essay in the early vegan publication which concluded with the following quote: “A great and historic wrong, whose effect upon the course of evolution must have been stupendous, would be righted. The idea that his fellow creatures might be used by man for self-interested purposes would be so alien to human thought as to be almost unthinkable. In this light, veganism is not so much welfare as liberation, for the creatures and for the mind and heart of man; not so much an effort to make the present relationship bearable, as an uncompromising recognition that because it is in the main one of master and slave, it has to be abolished before something better and finer can be built. ~~ Veganism is in truth an affirmation that where love is, exploitation vanishes. It possesses historical continuity with the movement that set free the human slaves. Were it put into effect, every basic wrong done to animals by man would automatically disappear. At its heart is the healing power of compassion, the highest expression of love of which man is capable. For it is a giving without hope of a getting. And yet, because he would free himself from many of the demands made by his own lower nature, the benefit to man himself would be incalculable.”

~Leslie Cross, (Vice-President, The Vegan Society)
39, Willow Crescent East, Uxbridge, Middx.



I saw a SILK commercial on television last night and thought of Leslie Cross and how happy he would be to see this mainstream advertisement of a plant-milk, as well as all the many vegan milks on the market today. In June of 1956, Leslie Cross founded the Plantmilk Society, which in 1972 became Plamil Foods, in the United Kingdom. He became a vegan in 1942, and at that time argued that dairy-milk production was cruel and exploitative. The first plant milk was fortified with calcium, vitamins B2, B12 and D2. In 1965 Plantmilk Ltd had Cross as its first full-time employee. 








An obituary by early vegan pioneer; Kathleen Jannaway appeared in the spring 1980 issue that read:
Leslie Cross, vegan for 35 years, founder member of the Vegan Society, and of the Plantmilk Society, died peacefully in his sleep on 2nd December, 1979. Inspired by his deep love of all life he looked forward to the day when plant milks would be generally used and a great burden thus lifted from the gentle cow. He was managing director of Plantmilk Ltd when it was at Langley, Bucks, was Secretary of the Plantmilk Society until his death, and often used his skill as a journalist to write on behalf of animals. We offer our sympathy to his wife, Constance, who worked so hard with him to forward the cause of animal compassion, and to his son and daughter, who were fine examples of vegan children.”

BASIC VEGAN RECIPE for FEEDING DOGS





BASIC VEGAN RECIPE for DOGS 
(feed twice a day, offer clean water,
and not the same meal everyday.)


About 1/3 of the meal (high protein) legumes

*whole lentils, split lentils (small red ones cook quickly)
*split peas 
*beans that are cooked well and mashed
*tofu (sometimes)
*tempeh (superior nutrition for dogs, highest source of food-sourced L-carnitine  in the vegan diet. Very high in protein. Not processed; a whole food product.   Make it palatable though, as in small chunks; seasoned and marinated.  
*seitan - wheat-meat - while I would not include it in my or their diet regularly,  it is good for dogs as they can easily digest the protein from it, studies say. It's  recommended for (vegan) dogs who poop a lot or have anal gland issues. Not a  staple food. 
*sprouted lentils, garbanzo beans, etc. (but not 1/3 of the meal, just a bit)

About 1/4 - 1/3 of meal; wholefood (organic) grain

*buckwheat (complete protein, optimal choice) low allergy
*quinoa (complete protein, optimal gluten-free choice) - low allergy
*oats - They have some good qualities, but not every meal
*brown rice - not high in protein, but good for B Vitamins
*barley - not every meal, change it up, needs longer cooking time
*whole grain pasta (spelt, buckwheat, etc.) - dogs love and I often add to the  mix  to help them love their meal. I am not fond of wheat or whole wheat,  though  some do give dogs this. If your dog has skin allergies or issues, don't  give them wheat. I try to avoid wheat completely when feeding dogs. 
*cornmeal, polenta, millet, amaranth- okay sometimes

About 1/3+ of the meal is vegetables:

*Butternut squash (superior choice because of omega 3 fats and high in beta carotene for your dog to convert to Vitamin A)
*Pumpkin/Squash - excellent choice. Every meal should have an orange colored  vegetable included. 
*Carrots, diced small and cooked into the meal and/or some grated raw
*Sweet potato - good choice as often as you like
*Potato (regular) - not highly nutritious (organic is best) (any green is toxic)
*Beetroot/beets - grate some raw into the meal, and or cook small amount
*Greens (kale) chopped small - raw or cooked (NO Swiss chard or greens that are high in oxalic acid as this can contribute to urinary crystals.) Limit spinach. 
*Broccoli - yes, small florets, too much is reportedly toxic to dogs. 
*Zucchini/Courgette - cooked with meal and cut into pieces. 
*Brussel Sprouts - cooked well, chopped into pieces, sometimes, not often.
*Raw sprouts mixed into the meal, broccoli sprouts, alfalfa, etc. 
*Fresh garden corn or peas, should be blended/mashed for digestibility
*String beans, cooked well and cut into small pieces.

Other Recommended Additions to the meal

*Ground flaxseed/almond/sunflower seeds - Just add a spoonful. If a dog already poops a lot, do not  give them flax seed or flax oil. 
*Hemp seeds (complete protein), Hemp Oil is thought to be the very best oil you can give your dog because of the omega ratio. You need to provide some oil to the meal for them to enjoy it, and for nutrition. Many dogs will not eat their food without an oil source. Not too much though! Flax oil is good for a shiny coat. Other options are organic cold-pressed olive oil, sunflower oil, (organic) canola oil, Coconut oil (not for dogs who are overweight), etc. 
*Some salty flavoring - mineral salt, tamari - too much salt is toxic to dogs.  Many dogs will not eat their meal without some sort of salty flavoring. 
*Cranberries/Cranberry Concentrate or Cranimals - can help to regulate the  urinary Ph of a dog on a plant diet. Cranberries are high in antioxidants, too. 
*Probiotic source like a small bit of sauerkraut (non-pasteurized) or Green Mush
*Nori and seaweeds - NOT too much, can overdo the iodine which can  cause health issues. If providing sea vegetables, then lessen the salt, or no salt. Kelp is super high in iodine so be careful if using it as overdoing iodine is a no-no.  
*Nutritional Yeast, Savory Yeast, or yeast specifically for dogs such as from   Evolution Diet in the U.S./Canada.  
*Marketed Vegan Dog Kibble - LINK to verified vegan brands worldwide - add  to prepared meals (to soften the kibble and to ensure required nutrients) or offer kibble alone. 

Supplement Additions (Do supplement, but don't over supplement.)

Taurine and L-carnitine - (vegan sourced) - is advised as a precautionary measure to prevent enlarged heart (dilated cardiomyopathy) which can occur in dogs fed vegan who are not properly supplemented. These supplements are included in most of the marketed dog kibbles, worldwide. Too much can upset the stomach of some dogs. Just a sprinkle depending on size and weight of dog. Taurine is given more often, and a few times a week on the L-Carnitine. 
Green Mush - has enzymes, probiotics, green powders, - highly recommended
VegeDog powdered supplement (does not contain L-carnitine, but all else). V-Complete from Germany/Europe.
B12 supplement - sometimes perhaps
Vitamin D (vegan) supplement if they don't get sunshine, but they should get sunshine.
Fruit treats, berries: some dogs will and some dogs won't. Some high antioxidant fruits like blueberries, offered in the meal or as a treat, can be a nice addition. Some marketed dog treats include fruit.
Molasses - supplies some iron.

Do NOT include these toxic-to-dog foods 

*onion/garlic, chives, leaks
*macadamia nuts - can cause hind leg paralysis. Walnuts are reported to be toxic  to dogs.
*Avocado - The persin in avocado is toxic to dogs, and they also can cause  enlarged heart with  pulmonary edema - One scientific study HERE. Kisses, my  dog friend. loved avocado and ate them regularly, and did get diagnosed with  enlarged heart (at age 14). Not worth  the risk. 
*nutmeg
*raisins, grapes, sultanas, currants
*chocolate, coffee and caffeine

Some of the brands are far more nutritionally complete than others that don't seem to include necessary vitamins/minerals...so you should supplement in order to ensure your dog friend is getting superior nutrition. Though all the marketed products would meet industry standards of good nutrition. Some brands are almost vegan but include vitamins that are animal-derived, and I DO NOT include those, nor brands that include ingredients that are reportedly toxic-to-dogs or inferior.

Zuke's Skinny Bakes Treats - NOT a vegan company, but they offer Skinny Bakes (now known as Crunchy Naturals) which are indeed vegan in the 5, 10 and 20-calorie blends - (note: not the 2's). The “natural flavor” ingredient is derived from vegetables in these varieties. Varieties that are vegan include Coconut & Pomegranate, Peanut Butter & Blueberry, Peanut Butter & Apple, Peanut Butter & Cranberry, Pumpkin & Sweet Potato, Cherries & Berries, Peanut Butter & Banana, Coconut & Strawberry, etc. They are divided by the amount of calories per treat which is helpful if your dog is underweight or overweight. 



Isle of Dogs - offer natural dog treats - some vegan and some NOT. They use non-organic canola oil (reportedly bad for the environment), but the rest seem like good ingredients. The second ingredient is 'cane molasses' which could possibly be a by-product of the sugar industry in the U.S. which is not necessarily vegan, due to using tons and tons of animal bones to refine the molasses out of the sugar to turn it white. The "joint" treats are definitely NOT vegan as they have chontroitin.
