No questions are too basic or ‘silly’ as some owners have said. These are some questions asked by owners that will hopefully help you –

Why does everything get mashed or blended once it is cooked?

The secret to homecooking a plant-based diet, is to make sure that everything is well cooked and blended. Dogs have shorter digestive tracts than we do and they do not chew their food like we do – some owners describe their dogs as ‘hoovering’ their food! For this reason, by blending everything, it ensures that your dog can get the maximum nutrition from the food.

It is possible to bake most of our recipes which is better for fussier dogs as it gives them something to bite into and it makes the food tastier. See the video below that shows the baking stage –

The Just be Kind supplement must not be added to the cooking or even the hot food as this destroys the valuable vitamins.

Always add the supplement at the end along with the oil and fresh herbs to make a ‘nutrient rich icing’ that you either mix into the cooled cooked food, or add it as a topping or as a filler if making ‘sandwiches’ with the baked food. We advise batch cooking to make it easy and practical for you to feed plant-based homemade long term.


It is so important when homecooking for your dog, to weigh all the ingredients (once we send you the tailormade quantities for your dog) and get the balance just right as every weight of dog has a different requirement. The reason for this is that a Chihuahua has a much greater surface area than a Great Dane for example, so this means a higher protein requirement (as a higher surface area means more protein-requiring fur).

Together with the a top vet nutritionist in Germany, we have done all the calculations for you. Just follow our family recipes and use the correct amount of supplement, and you will have certainty that you are feeding a 100% balanced plant-based and highly nutritious (and delicious!) home-cooked diet.

Can I mix the dry biscuits with the wet homemade food?

Absolutely and it will make the homemade food last longer. The quantities you are weighing will be the same, but if half the daily ration is made of dry biscuits mixed into the homemade food, it will last twice as long.

We do advise using the top recommended and balanced dry foods – TRY SAMPLES OF THE TOP FOODS

Are the vegetables' weight the weight of all the vegetables or individual kale, cauliflower and sweet potato?

Where the vegetables are grouped together in the measurements we send; the weight is for all the vegetables weighed together. Remove any woody stems of the kale so that more of the leafy foliage (full of nutrients) is used. Remove the skin of the sweet potato prior to cooking.

What is the best Algae oil to use?

We highly recommend Vegetology Algae Oil capsules that complement the JUST BE KIND Supplement and are very palatable to your dog.

It seems like an awfully long time to boil everything for 40 minutes

We agree that for us to boil all our food together for so long does seem contra-indicated as all the important nutrients may be lost. It is very different in our dogs as they cannot fully absorb the nutrients unless everything is well cooked and carefully mashed or blended.

Dogs do not chew their food as we do, they instinctively gulp their food, so the digestive process only starts in the stomach and intestines. Their intestinal tract is shorter than ours so they need everything already broken down to be able to absorb all the amino acids and nutrients from the food (or you will spot whole seeds or peas coming out the other end!)

By adding in the oats, or millet, or polenta to the remaining nutrient rich broth; we ensure that no nutrient rich water gets thrown away – some dogs will even drink the broth quite happily without the addition of the oats. It is worth keeping some broth and freezing it for emergencies as this broth is ideal for any dogs suffering from a tummy bug or recovering from an anaesthetic. The vegetables used are soothing and cleansing to their digestive tract.

What are the best Omega 6 oils to use?

Sunflower oil (or rapeseed oil) has the highest amount of linoleic acid that is essential to our dogs so it is the oil of choice for your dog to obtain their vital Omega 6’s. Our recipes also use sesame oil also for its high Omega 6 content, and dogs find sesame oil particularly palatable!

I have a number of dogs of different weights - how do I measure accurately?

We advise cooking in batches for dogs that are of similar weights  – cook for them together and if you have a number of small dogs, cook for them separately to the large dogs. We appreciate that it will not be 100% accurate, but makes it more manageable for you with a number of dogs.
Our most cost-effective recipe to make where you can buy the ingredients in bulk, would be our Potty about Polenta Recipe (also one of our tastiest and does not really require baking as the polenta hardens to give a bite so easier to bulk cook)

“Byron just had some homemade food, he loved it, keeps going back and licking his very empty bowl!”

Byron's Owner

“Yes I undoubtedly would recommend this food. The recipes are so easy to make . My dog loves it. I feel very confident she is getting all that she needs to thrive. This vet is so helpful and knowledgeable I feel very safe in her hands. I wish I had had her advice when I was first transitioning my 30kg dog as it’s quite scary and you only want the best for them. My dog is thriving I’m so glad I came across this wonderful website!”

“We’re delighted to have transitioned our two rescue greyhounds (overnight!) onto a plant based diet thanks to Arielle, Vegan Vet. We obtained the supplements together with the recipes and we’re enjoying making the food and thrilled to watch April and June eating their meals with enthusiasm and licking their bowls clean. We are so grateful to have found a vegan vet and to have a professional fully embrace this lifestyle will hopefully bring credibility and encourage other professionals to investigate this compassionate option. Thank you!”
