For many animal lovers, our dogs are part of the family. If we’re striving to feed ourselves, and our loved ones, a healthy, sustainable and cruelty-free diet, then it only makes sense to include our pets in this lifestyle. However, what does vegan dog food even look like? How difficult is to provide dogs with appealing plant-based meals that will fulfill their nutritional requirements?
Petcurean’s Gather makes it easy!
My Picky Dog LOVED It
I was a little worried if my dog would be interested in the food, as he can be a picky eater who doesn’t love dry food unless it’s topped with something a little tastier. However, it turned out he really loved the formula. Although he was skeptical at first, I added some fresh sweet corn (which is currently in season—he loved it!) to the top and he finished it promptly. For dinner, he didn’t even need the corn topping to entice him to start eating, which is rare because usually he won’t eat his regular dry food (Blue Buffalo Small Breed Chicken & Rice) without a topping.
He really loved this stuff, and finished his entire bowl! Though I obviously can’t speak for my dog, to me, it smells fresher and cleaner than typical dog food, which might be one of the reasons he was so eager to eat it. It also seems easier for him to chew. This makes me think that the formula would be a solid choice for dogs of all sizes.
A Naturally Good Choice For Our Pups
This is a formula I can feel good about giving to my dog, not only because it cruelty-free (even the bag is made primarily from sustainable plant-based materials!), but because it is a nutritionally sound choice. All Petcurean food is developed under the purveyance of Dr. Jennifer Adolphe, who ensures Petcurean kibble contains every protein, carb and fat source, vitamin and mineral that pets need. Plus, the Gather formula is made from all-natural ingredients including certified organic pea protein. This vegan dog food option contains all the essential amino acids dogs needed for a balanced diet and has Omega 3 and 6 derivations. It’s also free of GMOs, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, wheat, corn and soy.
Of course, always check with your vet before switching your dog’s food. It is generally a good idea to ease the transition between foods by mixing your dog’s previous formula with the new formula for a short period before feeding him or her only the new food. However, your vet can advise on what’s best for your dog.
Here’s to happy and healthy pups!
