Vegedog™ – Vegetarian/Vegan Dog Supplement
Although members of the order Carnivora, dogs are nutritionally omnivorous. It turns out, vegan nutrition for your canine family member will allow them to thrive AND avoid the toxicity of meat-based and commercial diets. Achieving the proper nutrient balance isn’t easy when making home prepared meals, since a dog’s dietary requirements are quite different from those of people, but the Vegedog™ supplement solves this problem.
Back in 1986, knowing dogs’ nutrient requirements, the original Vegepet formulator created recipes that met a dog’s nutritional needs as close as possible, using natural foods without animal products. Much of what dogs required was in the recipes, however, there were still important nutrients lacking. Those nutrients went into the Vegedog™ supplement. On the Vegedog™ diet, most nutrition is supplied by your using fresh whole foods obtained locally but the gaps are filled in using the Vegedog™ supplement. Our recipes and Vegedog™ supplement have been updated to meet the most up-to-date nutritional requirements set by the AAFCO in 2016.
Just add Vegedog™ to ordinary people food using our recipes as a guide and the vitamin and mineral content of the food is adjusted. Recipes can be adjusted if your dog needs to gain or lose weight or has a health condition that requires a modified diet. The new, 4th edition of Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats is a wonderful resource when special diets to address health conditions are required. Beyond using the Pitcairn’s recipes or other nutritionist approved, published recipes, we do not recommend making big changes to our recipes on your own without consulting an animal nutritionist to be sure the modifications are providing complete nutrition.
All Vegedog™ recipes contain food yeast (not to be confused with the kind that is used for baking) for B vitamins. Brewer’s yeast, nutritional yeast (pale yellow color), or our very special high acid VegeYeast can be used in the recipes.
For optimum health add digestive enzymes to each meal.

Suggested Use: The Vegedog™ supplement is intended for use with Vegedog™ recipes. Recipe brochures ship with the product. Contact us if you did not receive a brochure, or find recipes at www.CompassionCircle.com/Vegedog. Please read the introductory portion of the recipe brochure thoroughly before preparing meals. Recipes list the amount of supplement required for that recipe. You may increase or decrease the amount of food you prepare by proportionally increasing or decreasing all ingredients in the recipe. If you create your own recipes, closely based on ours, divide the daily serving size between meals. It is best to mix the supplement into prepared warm food, but the supplement can also be added during the cooking process.
Use our kibble recipe to make a delicious kibble and convenient biscuits. Cut kibble pieces larger or smaller according to the size of your dogs. Biscuits are quickly made with a wheeled pizza cutter, unless you want to get fancy and make bone shaped biscuits using a cookie cutter.
