Your Essential Guide To Finding Everything Your Vegan Pet Needs
For those looking to transition their dog to a (mostly or entirely) vegan diet and earth-conscious lifestyle, the change might seem a lot to take on.
Making sure your dog gets what he or she needs — whether that’s an eco-friendly toy or fully plant-based meal — can be a bit overwhelming.
Fortunately, with a growing vegan movement, changing food systems and environmental uprising have come the companies made to answer your call.
What follows is a guide the brands taking the guesswork out for you — so you can worry about getting little Tofu to the park instead.
Perhaps the best known name in plant-based pet food, v-dog is a not-to-be-missed player in this hot new sphere.
This brand’s line of kibble and treats is made to bring out the best in your furry companion. Boasting simple plant-powered recipes made with high-quality ingredients you can pronounce, the entire range is naturally hypoallergenic, easily digestible and anti-inflammatory — not to mention rich in the plant-based protein your pupper needs to thrive.
Those skeptical of feeding their dogs a meat-free diet can rest easier knowing that v-dogs formula was formulated with the help of veterinary nutritionists and canine nutrition experts — professionals with your pet’s best interest in mind.

Because Animals is a small but mighty company creating nutritious, sustainable pet food with a focus on protecting animals and the environment — all while remaining totally slaughter-free.
In order to achieve this lofty goal, Because Animals has chosen cultured ingredients like probiotics, nutritional yeast and — coming in 2021 — its marquee product, cultured meat.
For now, the brand offers two Superfood & Probiotic Supplements — one for cats, the other for dogs — which boast upwards of 250 million active probiotic cultures. These seaweed-based health boosters are designed to improve your furry friend’s immunity and digestion, and give them healthy fur and skin to boot!
Because Animals also offers peanut-butter dog cookies called Noochies because these tasty bites feature every vegan’s favorite ingredient, nutritional yeast or “nooch.” These human-grade, organic creations are loaded with whole food ingredients like ancient grains, banana, coconut oil, flaxseed and applesauce. You know — ingredients you can pronounce, so you know exactly what goes into every bite.
Makers of natural, sustainably sourced pet food, Halo Pets has garnered an outstanding reputation within the plant-powered pet food scene. In fact, its animal-free formula Garden of Vegan took home the VegNews award for Best Dog Food 2018 and was nominated for the same title for the 2019 awards.
This vegan product features a wholesome list of ingredients – including chickpeas, non-GMO vegetables and fruits, and nourishing plant-based oils – all carefully selected to help your dog stay vibrant and healthy on a balanced diet free of animal products.
On top of its award-winning kibble and wet formula dog food, the brand boasts two flavors of healthy vegan dog treats so your furry companion won’t have to miss a thing on a plant-based diet.
The brand’s vegan dog food and treats are also great alternatives for dogs with ingredient sensitivities as they don’t contain any meat, dairy, corn, or wheat.
