So this passed weekend i visited the pet store called Pets at Home. I have now made the decision to start feeding my puppy a vegan diet. I was confused as to why they only had a vegetarian option but not vegan. So I went on to twitter and posed the question to their twitter account. They responded ( as you can see below) . I think this is wrong and unfair to dog owners who are vegans and do not want to contribute to an industry that makes animals suffer. Am i right in saying dogs do not need to eat meat?

You're wasting your time looking for a vegan dog food. Make your own. There are a ton of recipes online you can use. I keep cooked sweet potatoes and mixture of brown rice, oats and lentils cooked with carrots or beets (depending on what I can get) on hand and add a few other ingredients when I serve our dogs. Usually, I add some beans, a few greens and sometimes a few other things.

We also give our dogs apples, sometimes with peanut butter, as a treat. There are other recipes I use, too and other items I give them, but this is the base. It's actually pretty easy and I don't give them anything I wouldn't eat myself anymore, so it's just like preparing another meal when I make breakfast and dinner (usually the apple is their lunch, sort of). We also give them plenty of our table scraps and anything that if it doesn't get eaten will go bad (as long as it's safe for them). You can Google the ingredient and whether it's safe for dogs to find out.

Hope this helps!

Hi Tamsin

I ordered v-dog from veggiepets (i can't post links so you'll have to google it!) which is advertised as vegetarian but is actually vegan.

Lots of dog foods are advertised this way - I assume because more people are vegetarian than vegan.

Check out that website, they list which ones are actually vegan and not vegetarian. I assume a company like PaH don't have that relationship with the brands that veggie pets do.

Also, there are some advertised vegan foods on there if that is easier like Ami.

There's are many vegan dog food brands. Usually ordering online is the easiest and cheapest way. V-dog, wysong, halo... etc. Those are good brands and fairly cheap.

Goodluck!
