Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton has revealed on Instagram that his bulldog Roscoe is now fully vegan, which has helped his health problems.
The racer shared a photo of the canine with a caption talking about his dog’s arthritis and how he was “limping in pain” because of it. Roscoe also had swollen paws and breathing problems, and Hamilton claims that giving him a vegan diet has healed his paws, his limp is gone, his breathing has opened up and has a much softer coat. He states he is happy with the results, and so is his dog.
The news was posted on Roscoe’s Instagram account, with the description confirming that he is a “vegan bulldog”.
Hamilton went vegan in 2017 for animal welfare and how a plant-based diet had a positive effect on his body. He revealed to GQ Hype that veganism had eradicated the “big oscillations and highs and lows” in his energy levels, and he was always looking for ways to improve his training.
