LEWIS Hamilton could make his dog unwell by feeding him a vegan diet, an expert has warned.
The F1 champ, 35, said he is already seeing the difference in bulldog Roscoe since he switched to plant-based food.
But Daniella Dos Santos, president of the British Veterinary Association, said: “A nutritionally balanced diet is essential. Meat contains vital vitamins and nutrients needed by dogs.
“Owners would need to take expert advice to avoid dietary deficiencies and associated disease.
“A dog on a vegan diet may also need synthetic supplementation.”
Six-times world champ Lewis revealed on Tuesday that Roscoe had ditched meat.
He said: “Hey guys, so Roscoe is now fully vegan.
“Since he has gone vegan, his coat is much softer, his swollen paws have healed up, he is no longer limping with pain of arthritis and his breathing has opened up.
“Super happy with the result and he is too.”
