FOR PUPPIES & MAMAS
Dogs are nutritionally omnivores without the metabolic limitations of carnivores, but achieving the proper nutrient balance is not easy on your own. Like magic, Vegepup™ makes it easy! Simply add this vitamin, mineral, and amino acid supplement to high-protein, plant-based, people food, using the Vegepup™ recipes in the recipe brochure that accompany your supplement.
Puppies and pregnant or lactating dogs need roughly 30% protein in the diet and require some nutrient levels to be higher than those for an adult dog. For this reason, the Vegepup™ supplement and recipes should be used for puppies under 12-months of age and pregnant or lactating dogs. Vegepup™ has a higher calcium, phosphorous, and mineral level than Vegedog™ and has threonine added to enhance the amino acid profile of the diet. Vegepup™ is safe for large breed puppies who have a lower calcium maximum allowance, too.
All recipes include food yeast. If you are feeding a vegan diet, we highly recommend using our VegeYeast, a brewer’s yeast modified for acidity that is especially good for your dog’s or puppy’s urinary health. See the recipe brochure for substitutions and additional information.
Adult dogs who are not pregnant or lactating, living in homes with puppies, can eat the Vegepup™ diet for convenience.

The Vegepup™ supplement is intended for use with Vegepup™ recipes. Recipe brochures ship with the product and you can find recipes information in the top menu bar above. 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.
On average, recipes need 1 tablespoon (15g) of Vegepup for every 1000 calories or 3 tablespoons (45g) of Vegepup for every 3000 calories in the recipe.
To find out how many calories to feed your pup per day, ask your vet or use a calorie calculator. Each of our recipes lists the number of calories in the entire recipe. You can divide your prepared meal into cups to determine the calories per cup and amount to feed. Young puppies benefit from multiple feedings per day.
For optimal health, add Prozyme® Plus and Green Mush™ to the diet. Prozyme® Plus is a digestive enzyme product and Green Mush™ is the ultimate superfood for your animal companion. Both are available from Compassion Circle.
For training treats, flavor our kibble recipe with nut butter (and banana) and use kibble pieces or cut our Sweet Potato Dog Snacks into bite size pieces (available from the Shop page).
