Vegan-based pets diets gaining popularity

Vegan-based diets for pets are gaining in popularity as some vegan owners are deciding that they want their pets to adopt a similar diet to their own.
Mainstream public opinion, including other vegans, hasn't offered much support, given the fact that dogs are omnivores and cats are carnivores: some require nutrients not found in human diets, vegan or otherwise.
Despite this fact, some petfood companies have made their niche selling vegan petfood, such as the Minnesota-based,
Evolution and Canada-based, Medi-Cal Royal Canine.
Some veterinarians are skeptical of the idea, pointing to the fact that owners and their pets are completely different species; each requiring their own specialized diet and nutrition.
