VEGAN VET DR. MAY: How to Transition your DOG to a HEALTHY VEGAN DIET!

Plant-based Nutrition for your Pooch Dr. May will discuss the benefits of a vegan diet for your dog and how to safely transition him or her to vegan diet.

Armaiti May is a vegan animal advocate and house call veterinarian for dogs and cats in Los Angeles. She obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in June 2005.  After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. May spent 20 months working at a 24-hour emergency dog and cat hospital in the Los Angeles area. She then became certified in veterinary acupuncture through the Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine and started a housecall practice for dogs and cats in Los Angeles.

As a practicing veterinarian, Dr. May educates people about preventive medicine as well as holistic options that exist for treating their companion animals’ ailments. Since 2006 Dr. May has served on the Board of Directors for RedRover, an animal protection organization that brings animals out of crisis and into care. She has also volunteered her time extensively lecturing to a variety of groups across the country on a wide range of topics including humane education in veterinary school, humane alternatives to declawing, the benefits of vegetarianism, and how to keep companion animals healthy.

Dr. May speaks Spanish and has provided volunteer veterinary services including surgeries, vaccines, and deworming to remote areas in Guatemala and Nicaragua without access to regular veterinary care. To learn more about Dr. May, please visit her website www.veganvet.net.

    Well worth my time! Dr May was very knowledgeable and informative. A lot of valuable information was discussed. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any cat or dog owner. She certainly helped me to decide going vegan with dogs was safe and healthy. We need my Vets like Dr. May.

    Dr. May sounds fabulous. Any chance she -- or anyone else reading this -- can direct me to a listing of veg*n vets in the East Bay/Berkeley area?

    I would love to see the event but I am working that evening. If she recommends any books on how to transition your dog to a healthy vegan diet, and someone would post that information online here, I would be most thankful!
