Vegan Dog food

Many of us wonder if it is safe and possible for our omnivorous friends to thrive on a plant-based diet. This could be due to a number of reasons, perhaps we disagree with the treatment of food animals, are concerned about the qualify of meat and ingredients in conventional dog food or our pets are allergic to, or otherwise adversely affected by, the meat in their diet. It is our duty to ensure the animals in our care receive the highest standard of living obtainable and this includes feeding them a variety and nutritionally complete diet remembering that dogs require specific nutrients, not specific feedstuffs (National Research Council).

I would advise anyone interested in introducing their dog to a vegetarian (Vegan)  diet to read the following book:

The Simple Little Vegan Dog Book

Another great book that is unfortunately only available via import from or direct from

Vegetarian Dogs Towards a World Without Exploitation

Or try one of the top name Vegetarian and Vegan Dog Food Brands available online and in some pet shops: Ami Vegan Dog Food (Soya Free), Benevo Organic Vegetarian (Vegan) Dog Food, (Wheat Free), V-Dog Traditional Flake (British), Yarrah Organic Vegetarian Dog Food, Wafcol Vegetarain Dog Food.

For a free overview of Canine Nutritional Requirements published by Natural Academies, a none vegetarian/vegan affiliated science institution you can download Your Dog’s Nutrienal Needs A Science-Based Guide for Pet Owners for free.
