Our Favorite Vegan Dog Toys

Are you vegan and wanting to know if your dog can enjoy some cruelty-free treats? The answer is YES! There are lots of alternative vegan dog toys for your pooch that will keep them from chewing on your shoes and satisfy their need to knaw.  

(Special thanks to everyone who helped me make this list of our favorite dog toys from the Vegan Pregnancy & Parenting Facebook Group — if you’re not a member, definitely check it out! It’s a wonderful resource and an amazing community of like-minded people.)


Wood Root – An alternative to sticks that can splinter and harm our furry friends, try non-splintering wood root for your dog to chew on. They make great vegan dog toys!

Frozen carrots – Did you know that dogs could eat carrots? I didn’t! Frozen carrots are a great treat for dogs in the summer months and super affordable, too!


Ropes – Rope chew toys are a great alternative and can give your dog something softer to chew on. Check your local pet store or online for these popular chew toys.

Deer/Elk Antlers – This one may be a little controversial, but here’s the thing about deer and elk antlers. These animals shed their antlers naturally every year, so they aren’t harmed or killed in order to get them. It is an option for those who are looking for a rawhide alternative without contributing to the animal agriculture industry. Our locally owned pet store carries elk and deer antlers, but they’re also available here.
