While some claim canines are natural carnivores, Phil Klein of Whiskers Holistic Pet Care in the East Village contends that “God made dogs and cats to eat raw food and veggies,” as he tells the Times. Kibble only leads to “tooth decay, bad breath and gas,” which explains a lot about some dogs we know. Klein claims he doesn’t carry anything he wouldn’t eat himself, including kelp powder and organic catnip. Fine, so long as these raw, vegan, organic pets don’t start invading our yoga classes — that’s a kind of downward dog we don’t need to deal with. [NYT, Related]
