Formula One racecar driver Lewis Hamilton has revealed that his bulldog Roscoe is now on a “fully vegan” diet like himself and has insisted the dog is enjoying his new plant-based meals.
On a regular basis, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton likes to fill in his fans and followers on how his dog Roscoe is doing. However, in one of his latest posts, he has revealed he’s decided to put the bulldog on a plant-based diet.
He wrote: “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.”
Roscoe, who has his own social media channel, is often spotted by Hamilton’s side as he walks the red carpets and the F1 paddock.
Speaking of his dog’s new vegan diet, he added: “Super happy with the result and he is too.”
Hamilton himself decided to adopt a vegan diet as he felt it was the “only way to save the planet”. He has described the world as a “messed up place”. He claims leaders are “either uneducated or don’t care about the environment at all”.
The motoring star explained: “Going vegan can be done so quickly…all you have to do is put your mind to it.”
Following his decision to try and help save the planet, the 35-year-old sold his private jet. He has stated that “agriculture farming” is the biggest pollutant, followed by the meat and dairy industry which has led to “deforestation [and] animal cruelty”.
He believes that human extinction is “more and more likely as we overuse our resources” and “our seas and climate [are] decaying on a daily basis”.

Last night at around 9pm, my beautiful little girl Coco died at home with the family by her side. Her little heart gave in, we think it was a heart attack. I tried to revive her but it was no use. She’d had the best day, happier than I’d seen her in a long time. She was such a special dog, born with so many problems and I feel so lucky to have adopted her. Her breeder said she was going to have to put her down as she wouldn’t be able to afford all the things she would need to survive, she went through a lot to become the bouncy, lazy loving dog she was. On her last day, we shared a special moment playing together which I will never forget. I will miss her snoring and how happy she was always to see me. She was only 6, healthy and happy. Naturally, my heart is broken but i hope she’s in a better place with my Aunty Diane. Wanted to share with you and thank those of you who loved and cared for her. #coco #restinpeace

Despite trying to revive her, “her little heart gave in”.
On Instagram, he shared the upsetting news with his 17.5 million followers. He said: “Last night at around 9 pm, my beautiful little girl Coco died at home with the family by her side.
“Her little heart gave in, we think it was a heart attack.
“I tried to revive her but it was no use.”
He said that he found comfort in the fact Coco had been having the “best day” and was “happier than I’d seen her in a long time” before her unexpected and sudden death.
