OMNI, a company that specializes in plant-based dog food in Britain, said it is seeking dog owners to sniff their dog’s poop, to test the effect a plant-based diet has on their dog’s digestion, stool odor and general health.
The winning applicant will be paid $6,685.82 to use OMNI’s dog food for two months and report on the effects the food has on the animal’s frequency of bowel movements, poop odor, energy levels, behavior, sleep patterns, weight and fur condition.
OMNI co-founder Shiv Sivakumar said customers have reported improved general health after switching to the plant-based food.
"We know that this is quite a peculiar vacancy, but we also know that this is the way for us to put our money where our mouth is and show that plant-based dog food could improve dogs’ digestive health," he said.
