The wolf story
"But dogs are descended from wolves!" Okay, this may be true, but we're talking about a very long time ago. Over the course of their evolution, dogs have changed significantly and adapted to the lifestyle of humans. Compared to wolves, dogs are better equipped with enzymes that are necessary for the decomposition of starch. Dogs can therefore easily absorb and digest plant-based foods. Your pet requires protein, but this doesn't need to come from meat.
With our vegetarian VeggieDog food, which was formulated together with nutritional scientists in line with international nutritional specifications, your adult dog is perfectly provided with all the necessary nutrients. Did you know that the oldest dog in the world lived on a vegan diet? You can find more information about why a vegetarian diet is possible here. There are also a few other reasons for feeding your four-legged friend a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Intolerances to animal protein
Maybe you have a pet that has an allergy or a food intolerance. Intolerances are always related to protein structures. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly common for dogs to have an allergic reaction to all kinds of proteins, requiring a food with a previously unfamiliar protein source. Some pet owners turn to kangaroo or ostrich meat. But there's no need to commit these environmental sins: with purely vegetarian food, you can feed your pet sustainably!
