Vegan Dry and Wet Food
Just like many human beings, four-legged ones suffer from allergies more and more. Allergies to meat, fish and/or dairy products are not uncommon and a vegan dog nutrition can be the key to free dogs from all allergic symptoms. Since they are omnivores, a vegan dog nutrition is absolutely unproblematic and one only has to pay attention, as it is also the case with a diet that contains meat, to cover all nutrients.
No matter if you want to do your dog good in terms of health or if you do not want to support the meat industry by buying conventional pet food – there are many arguments for a purely plant-based dog nutrition.
Choosing the Right Food
Contrary to many opinions, most dogs tolerate soy and gluten very well, also in the long run.
However, as it is the case with human beings, there are individual intolerances. Therefore, you will find both soy and gluten-free complete feeds from Benevo, Yarrah, Ami and V-Dog in our shop. Please use our allergy filter for your search.
If your dog does not have any intolerance, you should simply try what s/he likes and tolerates best. Naturally, tastes and preferences differ.
Dry food, wet food or self-made food?
How exactly your dog’s diet should be put together depends, of course, on your personal situation and preference: How about your financial resources? How much can you invest? What food does your dog like best? We highly recommend a varied diet. This can, for example, consist of 50% dry and 50% self-made food.
Or you alternate between dry and wet food. The possibilities are almost endless. In our shop, you will find a great variety of dog food from Benevo, V-Dog, Yarrah and Ami Dog. Should you decide to make the food yourself, and if only partly, have a look at the nutritional supplement V-Complete!
Please note: Accustom your dog slowly to a vegan diet. Give him or her the usual food and mix in more and more of the new food. That’s how you should proceed with every change of feedstuff.
This is a completely new matter for you and you have no idea where to start? Check out our blog post (will be published soon) with great tips concerning the subject!
Do you believe it is unnatural and not appropriate to the species to feed your dog a vegan diet? If you really wanted to ensure a ‘natural’ diet, you should give your dog the opportunity to eat whole mice or birds. But has your dog ever tried to slay a cow on a meadow? No? Consequently, it is simply not natural to serve him or her a cow. Apart from this, a dog in the wild would ingest large amounts of greens as well.
Did you know that the oldest dog in the world was a border collie named Bramble who lived to the age of 27? Bramble’s diet was purely vegan and consisted mainly of rice, lentils and organically grown vegetables.
