Dog guardians love to do almost everything with their dogs: enjoy the outdoors, binge-watch Netflix, take power naps, etc. But can dogs eat vegan with them, too? Yes! Here are some vegan dog-food brands to keep your dog happy and healthy:
PawCo is a 100% plant-based dog food brand that values the health of all animals and the well-being of the environment. It offers fresh, balanced meals for your dog.
As seen on Shark Tank, Wild Earth makes nutritionally complete, high-protein kibble and treats full of superfoods—with no animal-derived ingredients.
Petaluma is a dog nutrition company on a mission to make the future of companion animal care better for dogs, the planet, farmworkers, and farmed animals.
An entirely vegan, family-owned and -operated company, V-dog makes a wide variety of vegan dog foods, including kibble, biscuits, and even bones.
This Italian company makes healthy grain- and vegetable-based foods.
A U.K.-based vegan company, Benevo makes both canned and dry food for dogs as well as various treats.
Halo brand offers both a dry and a canned Garden of Vegan recipe packed with plant protein from nutrient-rich chickpeas and peas.
Note: Please remember to introduce dogs to a new food gradually. This means replacing a portion of the current food with the new food and increasing the amount of new food while decreasing the amount of old food over a period of 10 days or so. After switching dogs to a vegan diet, monitor them closely to make sure that their new diet agrees with them, especially if they are still puppies. Watch for chronic gastrointestinal and skin problems, and note any new health problems. Most dogs’ health improves on a balanced vegan diet, but occasionally an animal may not thrive, so use common sense if this occurs.
