Perry’s vegan trip
In 2019, Perry was part of a group of prominent investors that included Serena Williams, Jay-Z, Trevor Noah, Ruby Rose, Jaden Smith, and will.i.am who helped the plant-based company Impossible Foods raise $ 300 million Raising dollars in a Series E funding round. The 36-year-old musician is also a big Impossible Burgers fan. Before Perry gave birth to daughter Daisy Dove Bloom last year, Perry satisfied her pregnancy cravings with the plant-based burger. “Actually, beef is a food that I’m excited about now,” Perry told her fans in March 2020 on Instagram. “Not really into red meat, but thank goodness for Impossible Burger, because it basically tastes like red meat and if I want it, I’ll do it.” Perry even dressed up as a vegan burger twice, for the 2019 Met Gala and for Taylor Swift’s music video for “You Need to Calm Down”.
Can dogs go vegan?
Perry isn’t the first celebrity to switch their dog onto a plant-based diet. In June, world racing champion and vegan Lewis Hamilton announced that his dog Roscoe is vegan and “super happy”. While there is debate over whether or not dogs should be on a completely plant-based diet, Sarah Dodd, DVM, a consultant veterinarian for vegan dog food brand Halo Holistic Garden of Vegan, affirms that dogs – unlike wolves, evolved with them Humans – can live on a properly managed plant-based diet. “In fact, there is even evidence that some phytonutrients are more digestible in dogs than animals,” Dodd told VegNews in June that a dog’s transition to a new diet should be gradual and with the advice of a veterinary nutritionist .
