Ways to Incorporate a Vegan Diet into Your Dogs—And the Benefits

Author: Olivia Deloian – April 3, 2020

Going entirely vegan may not be the perfect fit for your dog, but that doesn’t mean you should cut it out completely. In fact, there are many benefits of incorporating some vegan options into your dog’s day that will compliment the rest of their diet and make them feel good!

 

Let’s start with the benefits!

1.         Allergen friendly- According to a study done by the Cummings School at Cummings Veterinary Medical Center, the most common food allergens in dogs are chicken, beef, dairy and egg. Vegan options obviously rule these out, and over time builds immunity having not been exposed to those triggers.

2.         Better digestion: Ruling out allergens or meat-based sensitivities, is an anti-inflammatory on the digestive system, making digestion much easier for your dog.

3.         Anti-inflammatory: Not only is it an anti-inflammatory for the digestive system, but also for your dogs’ joints which does wonders for older dogs according to V-Dog. If they have arthritis or general joint pain, studies suggest that plant-based meals help alleviate this pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

 

4.         Energy: Because of the plant-based proteins within vegan food, they automatically raise your energy levels. Want your older dog to be ready for a longer walk? This may just help!

 

So what’s a good way to add some vegan options into your dog’s diet? Dog treats!

Dog treats are the perfect way to incorporate vegan choices without fully changing over their diet. We have three different options at TROPICBD—Apple, Original, and Pumpkin.

Not only do they have all of the benefits mentioned above, each comes with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, which will also add to the anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits. In addition, the Full Spectrum Hemp Oil has anti-anxiety properties, so what better way to relax your dog while incorporating an even healthier diet?

No matter what treat you decide to choose for your dog, the benefits will be there. Including these vegan treats is an easy transition to make, and will leave your pet happy, healthy and relaxed.
