Just be Kind is a website dedicated to improving the lives of all our dogs with the help of nutritionally complete plant-based diets. It was founded by Vet Dr Arielle Griffiths who is passionate about researching and establishing the healthiest way to feed our dogs as she just wants the best for her own family dog Ruff. She is dedicated to promoting plant-based dog nutrition as she has seen first hand the astounding results when dogs transition from meat-based or even raw meat diets onto plant-based diets.
Working closely with Prof Andrew Knight to ensure accuracy, as well as german vet nutritionists; she has helped thousands of owners transition their dogs to a natural and balanced plant-based diet which results in those dogs coming off long term medication and enhancing their health through nutrition. Common health issues that can be resolved easily and safely through feeding your dog a plant-based diet as shown by all recent research include:
Dr Arielle believes that a wholesome and delicious plant-based diet allows us to better care for our dogs as well as contribute to making ever more environmentally conscious and sustainable cruelty-free decisions, without being influenced by large corporate pet food companies who may not always have your pet’s health at heart as we do.
“If nobody changes then nothing changes but if somebody changes then everything changes!”

Just like all you pet lovers out there; we love our little dog Ruff more than we can begin to describe – he makes our lives richer everyday with his overwhelming desire to just be our friend and make us happy.
We are a small family business with Mum Arielle a vegan vet, Dad a vet and our children are a vegan pharmacist, a physiologist and body builder, a vegan medical student and our youngest is a paramedic student, and a vegan, all with a desire to make the world a better place for all of us.
Our aims are ultimately for one of kindness
Kindness towards our own pets – feeding them the healthiest balance of sustainable tasty plant-based food that we can all lovingly prepare in our own kitchens with our trusting pets watching us
Kindness towards the animals we love so much – I still turn away in shame when I am driving and I see trucks carrying animals with their snouts reaching for the air vents as I remember that traumatising day as a young vet student when we had to visit an abattoir and witness the horrors of mass killing to satisfy our human greed for meat
Kindness towards our future – supporting small businesses that promote sustainability and generosity, not being tempted by the flashy advertising of large corporates who compete on a global scale for financial success and rarely prioritise kindness in their goals
Kindness towards our planet – ensuring that we use as little plastic as possible and find viable alternatives to protect our oceans, as well as feeding our pets and ourselves a plant-based diet to stop the destruction of land used for intensive animal and fish farming
Kindness towards each other – the greatest fulfillment I receive as a vet is when I work as a GP vet for the PDSA charity dealing with people whose pets are their lives – the personal reward I receive is massive compared to the financial reward
Kindness towards our environment – ensuring we have clean, healthy parks to walk our pets and hear the birdsong – simple, natural, mindful pleasures. We show how the choice of foods we feed our pets can affect our planet’s health.
