  What are the nutrients that can not be missed in a vegan diet. Possible health risks from poor diet. Veterinarian's role in proper nutritional management. Motivated for different reasons such as the defense of animal welfare, rejection of specism, environmental sustainability, health care or simply fashion, thousands of people around the world have changed their eating habits in recent years becoming dieted without components of animal origin. Vegetarians, flexitarians, vegans, whatever their rating according to the degree of rejection against the consumption of products from animal sources, the truth is that, when it comes to the care of their pets, these people also prefer to prevent their dogs or cats from consuming proteins of this origin. According to a survey of nearly 4,000 dog and cat owners from 5 English-speaking countries, 12% of them said they had vegetarian or vegan eating habits. Of this group, most agreed to prefer balanced without animal components for their dogs because, in this way, "they contributed to protect the welfare of farm animals" [5].
