Wild Earth Shares Vegan Resources for Dog Parents Following New Study Showing Health and Safety

Wild Earth, a cruelty-free dog food company, is sharing resources for pet parents interested in exploring vegan options for their dogs, in light of a recent study of more than 2,500 dogs shows that those on a well-balanced, plant-based diet exhibited fewer signs of poor health than dogs fed a standard kibble.

The study, led by Dr. Andrew Knight, who is affiliated with the Centre for Animal Welfare, Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at the University of Winchester in the UK, was published in the open-access Public Library of Science (PLOS) and explores the health outcomes of dogs fed vegan and meat-based diets.

“It revealed that the healthiest and least hazardous dietary choices for dogs are nutritionally sound vegan diets,” said Knight. Additionally, the study showed that dogs on a vegan diet required fewer vet visits than those on a conventional diet, which may lead to a reduction in healthcare costs.

On its site, Wild Earth offers resources and information for pet owners curious about a vegan diet for their pets, including answers to frequently asked questions and feature stories from other pet parents that have made the switch for the health of their pets.

“This study is further proof that not only can dogs survive on a vegan diet, but thrive,” said Ryan Bethencourt, Wild Earth’s co-founder and CEO. “I am hopeful that dog owners who may have been hesitant to switch to a vegan diet will see this information and have the confidence to switch knowing it’s the best diet for their dog’s overall health and wellbeing.”
