Mixing Dry and Wet Vegetarian Dog Food

As far as I know Eukanuba don’t do vegatarian dog food, but I read a post about mixing dry and wet dog food. My Malinois never has a problem with the dry stuff…until that is…it’s time for his doggie medicine and I have to force pills down him.

Take a look at their post: https://www.eukanuba.co.nz/blog/why-it-s-a-good-idea-to-mix-wet-and-dry-dog-food/

Vegetarian Dog Food

This post gave me the answer I needed. I started to mix my vegetarian dry food (I was using Yarrah’s Vegan Baobab Mix at the time) with a vegetarian wet food and the scary medication was suddenly not so scary.

I hid the Clindamycin in the wet veggie food and it went down well. I decided to go for the Lily’s Kitchen Veggie Feast because as as Amazon Prime member I needed something quickly. Lily’s Kitchen Veggie Feast is around £6/kg so I wasn’t keen on giving my Malinous JUST that, but mixing it seemed to go down excellently.

If you’re interested, Lily’s Kitchen does all sorts of dog food but this vegetarian one took my fancy as there are NO derivatives, fillers, artificial flavours or sweeteners.

You can buy a 6 pack here for around £14 when there’s an offer on.

NOTE: This is vegetarian dog food, NOT vegan dog food, and contains eggs and cottage cheese.

Add me on Instagram and let me know how it goes! I struggled in the early days to find proper vegetarian and vegan dog food so let’s share ideas on ethical pet food and I’ll see you veggies soon!

Vegetarian Dog – Can It Be Done?

The Lowdown

Can your pet dog be raised healthily on vegan or vegetarian pet food? On a completely meat-free diet?

Yes, yes it can – safely, and often more healthily than raising on tinned meat-based products.

Sorry did you want more information than that? Oh alright then…

In the 10,000 years since dogs have lived as life companions by our sides, things have changed a great deal. Just like how seals moved from the swamp to the sea, dogs’ genetic maps have completely changed since the days they wandered the terrain as wolves. Wolves still need meat, dogs no longer do. Why? Dogs have adapted at our side to create energy efficiently from plant based foods.

Look at the science.

Your husky may look like a Siberian wolf on the outside, but not on the inside. Since we domesticated dogs as our best friend, the gene Amy2B has shot up in dogs. Amy2B is crucial for Amylase production, and this gene is now 2800% more present in dogs than wolves.
