Ami Vegan Dog Food
We have not tried Ami dog food, but it does appear to have some very good reviews and is well-liked by dogs eating a plant-based diet.
Ami Dog was first introduced to the UK by VeggiePets.com in 2003 from Italy.
It is made of Corn, Corn Gluten, Corn Oil, Rice Protein, Whole Peas, Beet Pulp, Linseed, Bicalcium Phosphate, Hydrolysed Vegetable Protein, Potato Protein, Brewer’s Yeast, Calcium Carbonate, Sodium Chloride, Rapeseed Oil – maybe higher in calories than other plant-based diet due to use of rice and corn gluten, corn oil and beet pulp – all ‘sugar-rich’, but it is still a sustainable diet.
The kibble is very small compared to other brands so better for smaller breeds and the food can be soaked to make it more palatable.
There is no mention of added taurine in the Ami food for heart health, or plant-based Vit D3 so we are not sure if it is a vegan food or vegetarian like Yarrah if the Vit D3 is from sheep’s wool.
It will contain a small amount of methionine as it is mainly corn-based, but being a plant-based food, we always look for brands that add in extra methionine to help acidify the digestive tract further for adequate absorption of the main nutrients as well as preventing any urinary tract problems. Ami do not mention the addition of extra methionine. If this concerned you if you had a dog who has had urinary tract problems or heart conditions, then we would advise supplementing the taurine and methionine.
