Why every practice should stock plant-based dog food
With the knowledge shown below that we have an overwhelming demand from the general public wanting to feed their pets more sustainably, we have so much published proof of the health benefits of plant-based nutrition in our dogs; and it is shown to be one of the healthiest diets available for dogs, EVERY vet practice should be stocking plant-based dog food.
The morale of an entire practice can improve by being able to promote a diet that is ethically and sustainably superior to all the diets out there…and is backed by scientific research. For receptionists and nurses and vets to be able to recommend these diets that we know are trending, would greatly improve staff retention within a practice and tick all the boxes to promote sustainability for the entire practice.
“A balanced plant-based diet is a good choice for a truly novel protein diet when food trialling dogs with potential cutaneous adverse food reactions.
They are often more palatable than hydrolysed protein diets and dogs with an intolerance can be maintained on a complete diet indefinitely.”
Veterinary Dermatology Specialist Dr Sue Paterson
No need for unpalatable elimination hydrolysed protein diets that dogs can only stay on for up to 6 weeks as they are so low in protein! Dogs can eat plant-based foods for life which means a constant stream of income for a vet practice if these foods are kept in the waiting room for owners to purchase.
Once an owner knows that the food they are feeding is the only one that their dog can have, they are fiercely loyal to the food and do not allow their dog to eat anything else as shown in the reviews below.

“Pax was fed organic raw meat. She used to have all sorts of issues – allergies with constant hot spots, mystery lumps, bad staining around her eyes and mouth, problematic anal glands. The vet said her bloods were outstanding – literally everything was spot on – and that if she had a 9 year old dog with such good bloods she’d be very happy so whatever we’re doing for her, it’s working.“
“Without wanting to sound dramatic, Solo Vegetal has literally saved and brought our boy back. We saw many vets including specialists and not one suggested a vegan diet so we didn’t even know this was an option for dogs. I dread to think where we’d be now if we hadn’t transitioned Duke!“
“The diet change to plant-based has been the game changer…and we have not been back to the vets for 4 weeks and counting! (which is incredible considering what we have been through with Lottie and her itchy ears)“
“Plant-based dog food has been life changing for Tommy. I decided to try Solo Vegetal and after just 3 months his skin became clear and his brown gungy saliva returned to normal!“
“As a breeder of Italian Bolognese dogs the biggest challenge is the tear staining. I have bred for 18 years.
My dogs have never looked so good, no stains and really healthy, so far we have been plant based for 5 months and are learning everyday.“
