Halo might be best known for being co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres, but they make really high quality products as well. Halo holistic is Halo’s line of vegan dog food, and is one of the best vegan dog foods you’ll find. However, one big drawback is the price. Does the quality of the food justify the price? That’s what this review is for. We’ll look at the dry kibble version first, and then the canned...

V-Dog Kinder Kibbles Review: Is V-Dog the Best Vegan Dog Food?

V

V-Dog might be the most famous vegan dog food brand there is. It’s a family owned business that’s exclusively been making vegan dog food since 2005. If they weren’t good at it, they’d be out of business. V-Dog only makes dry food, in 2 variations: kinder kibble, and kinder kibble mini-bites (for smaller dogs). Both are intended for adult dogs. At the moment, they don’t make any wet (canned) food...

Natural Balance Vegetarian Formula Dry and Canned Food Review

N

Natural Balance’s vegetarian formula is known for being high quality while still relatively affordable. It comes in both dry and wet food, and is rated #1 overall in our list of the best vegan dog foods (for both wet and dry). This is mainly due to a combination of the cost, and that almost all dogs seem to like it (even picky ones). It’s not a perfect dog food, but it is very good. The protein...

Can Cats Be Vegan? A Research-Backed Answer

C

Ever since going vegan, I’ve been incredibly conflicted about this question. It’s sad and painful to feed my 2 cats animal products, but at the same time, I can’t imagine feeding them lower quality food, or vegan food that might cause serious health issues. Ask vets if cats can be vegan, and 99% or so will say that it’s not a good idea. I’ve been pouring through all the research on vegetarian...

How to Feed a Dog With Vegan Food on a Budget

H

For an equal level of quality, vegan dog food is going to be more expensive than “normal” dog food. There’s just less demand for it, so companies can’t manufacture it in the same quantities (gets cheaper the more you make). But you do have a few options to lower the cost. 1. Monitor Online Stores for Discounts (and buy “damaged” food) Veggie Pets is a store that sells vegan dog food like V-Dog...

There are a few good reasons to give your dog(s) vegan dog food. Many dogs do great on a plant-based diet, but some don’t. If you’ve noticed some issues after making the switch, there are 3 main ways that the vegan food could be causing them. Regardless if one of them is the culprit, you should always go to the vet to rule out any other serious causes, as the timing may just be coincidental...

Why Would You Feed a Dog Vegan Dog Food? Is It Safe?

W

Don’t dogs need meat? That’s a completely reasonable question. We think of dogs, who came from wolves, and it’s not a far stretch to assume that dogs are carnivorous (e.g. they have to eat meat to meet their nutritional requirements). But as dogs became domesticated, they evolved to be omnivores. Dogs may prefer meat, but they can digest plant materials just fine. There are 2 primary...

The Best Vegan Dog Treats to Buy in 2019 (That are healthy!)

T

After doing several hours of research to find the best vegan dog foods, I turned my sights to treats. Treats are a great way to reward or spoil your dog, and there are quite a few vegan options available.
