About v-dog
At v-dog, we’re vegans and love dogs of all shapes, sizes and scruffiness. In fact, we love all animals…cows, pigs, chickens, you name it! That’s why we’re passionate about making a difference through our 100% plant-powered products.  We use clean, plant-powered protein and leave out corn, soy and wheat, so our products are excellent for sensitive and itchy pups. Plus, a vegan dog, like a vegan human, leaves a much smaller paw print on our planet. Yummy, healthy, cruelty-free dog food?
