Companion animals hold a special place in our hearts so of course we want to show them love by giving them the best food and treats. We also know there’s some controversy around plant-based pooches, so we did a little research to share a few of our favorite dog food options with you.
V-dog is owned and operated by a pit bull-loving family that believes “vegan dogs, like vegan humans, leave a much smaller paw print on our planet.”
We love V-dog kibble because:
- V-dog’s eco-friendliness is something we can get behind—The bags are 100% compostable.
- V-dog is endorsed by PETA, Mercy for Animals and other animal-friendly organizations that we ♥.
Pups love V-dog kibble because:
- V-dog for dinner means more energy for walks and fetches! This 100% plant-based formula combines USA-sourced ingredients to build strong muscles and support brain development and cardiovascular health.
- No gluten, wheat by-products, fillers, soy, corn or GMOs means no itchy bellies or other uncomfortable allergy symptoms.
2. Natural Balance
Natural Balance Pet Food Co. provides pets and their owners with “The Food for a Lifetime”, focusing on applying sound scientific principles and nutritional truths when developing their formulas.
We love Natural Balance Vegetarian Dry Dog Food because:
- They test each and every batch for 9 known contaminants before it is distributed, meaning we can buy with confidence.
- They won a VegNews 2009 Veggie Award.
Pups love Natural Balance Vegetarian Dry Dog Food because:
- It keeps them feeling sharp and looking shiny because it’s chock full of healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
- Green peas at every meal will guarantee your pup will be satisfied with a wholesome amount of protein, fiber and carbohydrates.
3. Homemade Dog Food
Okay, okay, so this isn’t a brand, but we’re all about DIY over here at Vegan Cuts. You can find recipes of all types from a simple Google search, but one of our favorites is this recipe from The Vegan Zombie: Cook and Survive, which is available in the Vegan Cuts digital marketplace:
We love homemade dog food because:
- Like other DIY products, making it yourself means you know exactly what does and does not go into your pup’s food.
- We love cooking!
Pups love homemade dog food because:
- Variety is the spice of life! Mixing up ingredients rather than sticking to one kibble means that your dog gets a taste of a wide variety of fruits, veggies and grains.
- A homemade, nutritious meal is easily digestible.
