An update to the Vancouver based Dogg Canine Nutrition Company (previously known as INDOGO) feeding trial. The results of an informal 12 week plant based feeding trial is now in. They are to release a formal announcement along with a summary and clinical abstract in the coming weeks. Here is a statement from the Supervising Veterinarian at Yaletown Pet Hospital.

That all sounds quite positive. Good news for anyone thinking about a meat free diet.

Dog food studies seem to be few and far between however recently a dog food study, Vegetarian versus Meat-Based Diets for Companion Animals was published.

Tara's vegan story has made some of the daily nationals but I believe this was the original article. Looks like a tray of Benevo Grain-Free Vegetable Feast with Mixed Herbs next to the Yarrah Dry Dog Food. Benevo is not rated in the food directory at present but the ingredients for this particular product is
Composition: Lentils (10.0%), Potato (5.5%), Chick Peas (5.5%), Peas (4%), Carrots (4%), Sunflower Oil (4%), Linseed Oil (1%), Tomato (1%), Sunchoke (0.5%) Mixed Herbs (0.5% Rosemary, Parsley, Oregano, Marjoram & Mint), Seaweed (0.25%), Minerals
Analytical Constituents:
Moisture 70%, Protein 6%, Fat Content 5%, Fibre 0.5%, Ash 2%

Meg thanks for posting. I hadn't read that article before. Indogo mentioned in the article is now the Dogg Canine Nutrition Company.

I am aware that some believe that it is appropriate to feed dogs a vegetarian/vegan diet.

I am mindful that humans get most benefit from fresh (not processed) veg......the alleged starch/sugar levels in some dried processed foods of this type rule this that type of vegan dog food out for me presently.

Despite currently having a vegan family member in the household I currently lack the confidence to correctly & safely source prepare & feed a cost effective suitably balanced d.i.y. vegan dog food diet.

The DOGG brand link has raised my interest as they claim to be launching a fresh plant based food. As stated the company is infancy & not selling food yet.....also only initially planned for sale in a specific area of Canada.

I will do some more research & keep an open mind in this area.

Like you Coaster, I have an open mind and as vegan, vegetarian products very slowly come on the market the more we will learn.

Very interesting topic at the moment. I recently have stopped eating meat but I would never want to put my choices onto my dog. It is my belief however that dogs can survive/thrive on vegetarian diets. One of the downfalls though about a veg diet is that veg protein sources are often poor sources of specific essential vitamins and fatty acids. Therefore, when choosing a veg diet they must be appropriately formulated and balanced, including proper sources of amino acids.

I just want to tell my experience , my four dogs have been eating vegetarian/vegan food in the last 6 months  and I am really impressed as they are doing really well. They enjoy their meals  and they look as good as ever (they were in cold pressed food and raw meat before). They eat Yarrah and Veggiedog kibbles but also supplement with seeds(chia, flax, hemp) and with vegetables (sweet potato, pumpkin, beans, etc) and fruit.
