Vet Referrals & Nutritionists

Many in the veterinary community are becoming more supportive of a plant-based diet, for general health or to address specific health concerns like allergies and obesity. If your veterinarian isn’t immediately supportive, try educating them. A quality vet will be open to learning something new! You can recommend that your vet read the 4th edition of Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Heath for Dogs and Cats. You can also recommend they listen to the interviews from The Plant-Powered Dog Food Summit to hear what other veterinarians with experience feeding plant-based have to say on the subject. Let your vet know you are willing to assess your animal’s health with blood tests a few months into the new diet, and be sure to feed a nutritionally-complete commercial food or properly supplemented home-prepared diet. The Compassion Circle Team is happy to communicate with your vet if they have questions.

If your vet simply does not support your decision to feed a home-prepared, plant-based diet, you’ll likely want to find a new vet. Below are some veterinarians who are supportive of plant-based feeding. If you have a positive experience with your veterinarian supporting your vegan diet plan, let us know and we can share that information with others looking for the same.
