I’d also like to add that sometimes, you may think you are getting something that is cruelty free, but it’s not. I just looked at the sites for these foods, and Nature’s Recipe is manufactured by Del Monte Foods, which makes Kibbles N Bits, Snausages, Meaty Bone, and more. All brands that are not even close to being cruelty free. So even if your dog is eating the vegan food, you are still supporting a company that promotes cruelty. Just sayin…

Not every vegan pet owner who tried this best vegan dog food has been as successful in converting their mutts. This formula seemed to work fine at the start, so they were initially ecstatic. Months later, their dogs experienced issues like uncontrollable diarrhea and gas. While they wanted so much for this food to work on their pets, their vet had to recommend dry meat food back into their dogs’ diet.

In early 2010, I decided to transition the dogs from a vegetarian to a vegan kibble (having abandoned the use of eggs and dairy in homemade dog food the year before). According to the Vegan Dog Nutrition Association, the Nature’s Recipe Vegetarian formula , as the vitamin A is derived from retinol and the vitamin D3, from lanolin. My first choice of vegan kibble was , which the dogs initially tolerated. However, after several months on V-Dog, I noticed a large uptick in the frequency of vomiting (usually bile, usually at night) in all five dogs – even Kaylee and Jayne, who have stomachs of steel (probably from years spent scavenging for food due to “owner” neglect and/or abuse). In May, we switched to ( with free shipping) – which is vegan – and the vomiting quickly ceased. More than two years later, and the dogs are thriving on Natural Balance (and their mum and dad could not be happier or more relieved!).
Please do not harangue me about “my” vegan dogs!

Crockpot dog food recipe - it's vegan, but I added 1 lb of ground beef to the 6 c water, 1 c rice, 1 c lentils, 3 sweet potatoes - cooked on high for 4-6 hours. Mushed it with a potato masher and added ~2 c cooked black beans, 2-3 T spirulina, & wheat grass powder. Dogs loved it frozen in a Kong! Next time I'll add a few apples and carrots to the crockpot.Crockpot dog food recipe - it's vegan, but I added 1 lb of ground beef to the 6 c water, 1 c rice, 1 c lentils, 3 sweet potatoes - cooked on high for 4-6 hours.

The pugs seem to like every bean, vegetable and fruit I throw at them, but they're particularly fond of: corn, peas, sweet potatoes, black beans, kidney beans, black soy beans, tempeh, apples, bananas, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, asparagus, brown rice (they actually won't eat white rice), collard greens, kale, spinach, whole grain cereal and oatmeal.Vegan Dog Food Recipe-sweet potato, brown rice, black beans, kale.
