Bond Pets have updated their website. https://www.bondpets.com/
Do you know how they get the animal cells? Fur, feathers, flesh?

OFS would you be so kind as to give us some feedback on Lukullus Veggie once you have used it over a period of time.
Yes, of course

Thanks Seaweed. I have already ordered 20 kg of Lukullus Veggie for my dogs; itś really good to have good options in the market as I have always had my preferences on cold pressed food for dogs

I found an interesting article from what I think it is an independent and objective opinion about the topic http://vetnutrition.tufts.edu/2016/07/vegan-dogs-a-healthy-lifestyle-or-going-against-nature/

I always thought it was the same as "meat meal", question of marketing as the term "Dried meat feed" sounds more attractive.

Thanks Seaweed and congratualtions for this  thread .  I never thought  that my dogs ever consider not eating meat  but  we did a  slow transition and now they love their food. 
Another article that you could find interesting http://www.veganhealth.org/articles/vegan_dogs

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.

I found this cold pressed food in zoo-bio.uk :
Hazy Meadow - Turkey & Trout  https://www.zoo-bio.co.uk/black-canyon/32011-hazy-meadow-turkey-trout
Glen Valley - Duck & Sweet potato https://www.zoo-bio.co.uk/black-canyon/32009-glen-valley-duck-sweet-potato
Has anyone tried them?

I saw in some Spanish  online shops that they use a process called "Tenderize technology" that I understand is basically a hydrolysis process so in that respect it would be different to the other cold pressed food that we know.
In this web  there is  more information http://www.huellacanina.com/grain-free-food-alpha-spirit-food-alpha-spirit-only-duck-p-9279.html?osCsid=so365rfo1jto7h88jk5j4h4ac6

By the way,  I have been feeding my four dogs with cold pressed food (Luposan Natural Extra Energy and Markhus Muhle Acticell) in the last 3 months and  I am really happy with this type of food. I highly recommend  cold pressed food for your dogs.

Alpha Spirit  has got a new variety of dry food http://www.aspiritpetfood.com/products/dry-dog-food/. Through the description I understand  that it is cold pressed food.

Thanks Meg but I couldn't remove my vote

My option would be  Mostly dry complete +some raw food + wet food complete .  I decided to vote for Mostly dry complete +wet food complete.

Certainly, testing is the best way to know if the product is working all right or not.
Thanks for the link
