You are being a compassionate owner by feeding your dog a plant-based diet. Compassion is the ability to feel another person or animal’s pain or discomfort and then acting on that feeling to bring about a change. This is exactly what you are doing with every vegan meal cooked for your dog or each bag of vegan food bought – you are preventing the pain and suffering of millions of chickens, cows, calves, pigs, lambs, farmed fish and sheep so you can be commended for making such a compassionate choice!
Our dogs only like meat, chicken, sausages and fish as like us it is familiar food used in 99% of all dog food and dog treats out there. Familiarity is what makes us as owners crave those cheeseburgers, cakes and pizzas but as soon as we replace our familiarity with healthier, sustainable options, those cravings go.
Dogs have a sense of smell that is 1000 times more acute than ours and they can smell every amino acid and nutrient in their food. If offered healthier plant-based options, they will and do smell the nutrients in them and this causes the involuntary dilation of their pupils when they smell something they really want – just try our Umameo dog treats recipe or our homemade delicious plant-based diets on your dog to see what we mean!

Meat contains dioxins, artificial hormones and TMAO dangerous to not only our pets but to us too
No dogs do not need eat to eat meat from another animal, they need protein and they can get an ever better protein source from plants
