Jessy's itch is gone

'Jessy is very social with people and affectionate. Furthermore, he is nervous by nature, does not get along with other dogs and has the 'eye' which means that he keeps the focus on something and we can hardly get him out of it. Indoors and in the garden with play area he is great and loves to work. With border collies, it's important to keep them occupied, in addition to the rest they need. For example, if the weather is bad, you can play thinking games with them. Outside we train, we play and Jessy is also the best frisbee catcher of the two. We use the VeggiePet Sweet Potato training balls when training, he loves it! Furthermore, Jessy loves the Vegusto sausage.

At the end of January this year we started switching our border collies Jessy and Sacha to Vegan Dog Food. After ordering several test bags, the Greta chunks to be no. 1 with both. Sometimes I alternate with To me wet food, the Vegusto sausage and regular extra vegetables and fruit that are healthy and suitable for them.

Both had skin problems for years, Jessy worse than Sacha. That often started in April and lasted until October, terribly scratching and biting the fur, creating hotspots. Because we couldn't figure out where it came from, they were both given medication for the itching.

Since we started with Vegan Dog Food, all complaints have disappeared! No more itching, no more hot spots, no more medication needed. Really beyond expectations and we are so happy! Our vet is also fully behind it and would like to follow it, so she wants to do a blood check on both in September, but we expect that it will be very positive. (Update Oct 2021: The blood results are in order.)

Their coats look healthier, and their stools have never been as good and consistent as they have been since they started eating Vegan. And they love it!

We have a subscription which is very nice, and it is delivered perfectly every month. They also love the training sweets and chews, not too much of course, it was a bit of a search in the beginning for the balance because they gained some weight, but are now back to their ideal weight. 

We are very happy! And also to be able to contribute to the better welfare of all animals now in our family (the dogs are our children).' – Frans and Merlinde Swiers

Sacha has no more skin problems

'Sacha is very relaxed, takes it easy although she loves her play egg, catching frisbees and balls. Sacha is less sociable, she is a bit shy but once she knows someone she is very sociable. Sacha's favorite snack is the multivitamin chewing bone and she finds the Vegusto sausage delicious too. We use the VeggiePet Sweet Potato training balls when training, she loves it!

Nova's coat is much better now

Nova eats vegan because I became a vegan myself 3 years ago. It didn't feel right after that to give meat. Nova has also had a congenital skin defect since she was 1,5 years old. 

We wanted to try and see if vegan food would help with her skin condition. First we switched to chunks, after which we could already abandon antibiotics. It was better, but not gone. For two months she has been eating self-composed food with Vegdog all inclusive velux en Vegeyeast. I now cook the 'complete basic meal' from the book Dog.Eat.Plant for her. Since then, her hair has become much thicker and has less flakes. She also no longer needs to be washed every week with a special shampoo.

Nova was always just a bit too heavy with chunks (also with the vegan chunks). With the fresh food she has a much nicer weight.

When Nova got meat she was a very picky eater, now she rarely leaves anything out. She eats even whole pieces of vegetables or legumes.” – Larisa

Otis has the energy of a young dog

Otis is a minpin mix of over 9 years old. We adopted him when he was 20 months old in February 2013. He was then in a shelter after being taken out of a bad situation with a number of other dogs by the Animal Protection Agency 6 weeks earlier.

Otis primarily eats vegan because we are also vegans ourselves. But also because I believe that a diet without animal suffering is also better for an animal. I first started reading about the vegan feeding of dogs. He's eating now Vegdog Green Crunch (always sliced ​​with a carrot) for breakfast and Senior wet food with extra vegetables and some additional supplements for dinner.

Fun fact about Otis, he only likes soft toys. He is also very careful with that. He has a real hug posse. His first toy he got from us (now 8 years ago), Rataplan the rat, he still has and is his best friend.

Otis is almost 10 years old, but he has the energy of a young dog and the jumping skills of a kangaroo.
He is always happy and very funny. ” -

Nera is now a happy eater!

“I am vegan myself (for the animals) and came into contact with VegaVriend and Lisette Kreischer. When I read and learned more about vegan dog food, this seemed like a logical step to me. Before Nera (a Romanian sweetheart) came to us, I already had the sample package from VegaVriend! We gave our previous Romanian sweetheart 'normal' dog food for 10 years. This is because you 'just' did this without thinking. (She passed away a year ago.) 

At this point, Nera is getting the little chunks of it Greta, her favorite wet food from Pauline and since I booked it Dog.Eat.Plant also have self-compounded food with a supplement.

Nera was not 'such an eater' it was said when we got her. I think she has always had to wait for her food, in the pack where she stayed at a shelter in Romania and before that too, when she spent an indefinite period of time chained on someone's land.

In the beginning I was happy when she ate something. I tried everything. But when I started giving her vegetable wet food, her appetite changed! We tried out all the cans and Pauline's wet food turned out to be her favorite!

I was looking forward to the Dog.Eat.Plant book with great heart. I couldn't wait to start cooking for her myself. This with the necessary substantiated knowledge of course! I made sure I had the supplements at home. The first meal I made for her was a great success! She almost licked the bottom of her tank!

Now, when I am cooking in the evening, Nera gets all restless with joy because she is now eating with us!

A home prepared meal or an occasional can. And in between she still likes to eat her kibble! Because now she's a happy eater!

As a supplement:
I never thought that giving your pet animal-free, plant-based food, could bring you so much joy! Knowing that no other animals have suffered for this, knowing that it is super healthy and balanced nutrition, invented and made by people who have the good for all animals in their minds. It gives you a feeling of gratitude! And this has deepened my bond with Nera even deeper. This because I am really aware of what I give her, and because I really choose or make this with love for her (and all other animals).

Deli loves carrot

“Deli has been living with us since mid-November and from that moment on I switched her to vegan food. I soon noticed that she really likes to eat vegetables, because she always likes to handle carrots and she also likes to eat cucumber and broccoli. She likes to eat chunks much less. I've given her all kinds of vegan kibble for small dogs, but she doesn't like handling them as much as vegetables. So I went to see if she likes it when I make a recipe from the book Dog.Eat.Plant for her. It has a recipe that contains her favorite vegetables: Rani's Lentils and Seitan Stew. Deli loves it! She licks the tray completely empty every time.

I really enjoy cooking vegan for her. That way I know exactly what she is getting in and I know that no other animals have suffered for it. With the added supplement (V-Complete) it also gets a nice scent. She really enjoys it, so a win win for everyone! ”- Melissa van Vlimmeren

Wolfje's stomach problems are almost gone

'Wolfje had recurring stomach problems with all meats; fresh, processed, or processed into chunks. He now eats vegan and he is doing well on that. I like that he is doing well because I thought that would not be good for my dog. I usually eat vegan myself.

Wolf now mainly receives self-composed food, with the occasional few water-soaked chunks of Lukullus veggie. 

Wolfje has a very sensitive gastrointestinal system and ultimately does not tolerate any animal protein. Now that he is fed vegan food, the pain and pain have largely disappeared. It's not completely gone yet; CBD oil from De Groene Os also gives him relief. And I'm still looking for an even more pleasant life.

About composing yourself; 
- nice that there are good ones supplements are. 
-I prefer not to give him soy products as a protein source. I prefer to use red lentils or split peas, or other pureed varieties.
- In the book Verrot Lekker by Christian Weij and in Fermenteren, step by step by Adam Eland I found recipes to (partly) ferment them; they are easier to digest and the nutritional value is greater! A must for humans and animals! ' -

Pixel has been eating vegan for over 8 years

'My animals have always had a balanced vegetarian diet and since we learned that the dairy industry is just as big (or even worse) for the animals there and eating dairy and eggs is just as unhealthy as meat, it was normal for us. that we also let our own dogs evolve with it.   

I vary a lot and mix the dry food together, but the favorites are the canned food Ami Dog (the yellow one) , the chunks of Greta (wheat-free corn and soy-free) and the chunks of Forza10 bio (I also take these on long walks as sweets). - Chantal

Tyson's coat has become so much more beautiful

Tyson is now almost 12 years old and still a happy, energetic dog. I think this is largely due to his diet, which has improved a lot since he started eating plant-based. Tyson is fed vegan for ethical reasons. He is currently getting food from the brand yarrah

Tyson used to suffer from a coat with hard, wiry hair and now his coat shines and feels soft. He also no longer has stomach problems and no diarrhea since he does not receive 'meat' with by-products. Now that I also know what's in animal dog food, I am only happy that it responds well to vegan food. Tyson loves vegetables and I regularly give him fresh vegetables and herbs with his meal. I would never have dared to hope this 8 years ago.  

Tyson's coat has become so much more beautiful, but he also no longer vomits at every exhaust round and he stays off grass. According to me and according to the vet he is a lot healthier now. ” -  Natascha

Modest prefers to eat vegan food

'Modest eats vegan, because I eat plant-based food and I wanted to try to get our dogs to eat plant-based food as well. I had heard quite a few pros and cons until I did some research on it myself. This week I had their first blood test and everything was fine.

Modest is now eating V-dog Flakes. He really loves it! I let the vegetable chunks soak in warm water for a while and he loves it. This way he also gets some extra water, because in general he drinks very little water during the day.

In terms of energy level, he is still just as playful and fit as before. I do notice that Basile and Modest prefer these chunks much more than their chunks with meat. I had to stand next to the chunks with meat so that they neatly emptied their bowl. I don't have to do that anymore, because when their own bowl is empty they go together to see if there is any leftovers in it. - Melanie Schaekers

Bo's coat has become more shiny

“Bo comes from Spain and as a 2-year-old street dog ended up in a shelter there, where he remained for about five years. We adopted him via Moving Animals in March 2020. 

Bo gets vegan food, because we follow a vegan lifestyle as much as possible. He is currently getting VegDog Green Crunch. We started with one starter pack to see what he likes, but he ate everything without any problems. His coat has started to shine and look better. ' - Winnie Bakker

Pili is fit and playful

Pili is named after Pilar, a Spanish woman's name meaning “pillar of strength”. Pili has been tied to a stake for a year by people who used to bully her, but her character is stronger. She was eventually taken from there by a friend of mine who couldn't handle her, and that's how she ended up with me. 

Pili is fed vegan because I adopted her to save her from a hopeless situation and I couldn't accept that other animals now have to “live” and die for her in hopeless situations. She currently gets twice a day V-Dog flakes en Ami Dog chunks and in between I give a lot of varied food, such as beans, vegetables and fruit. The dogs like to eat just about anything, and because the four of us live vegan mainly on discarded fruit and vegetables and a minimal budget, they eat very varied and fresh daily. Their breath never stinks, their excrement composts very quickly.

I live with the dogs (Pili, Lente and Wodan) in a forest so they have a lot of exercise, good air, always fresh groundwater from the well in a bath, and have had to stop hunting. They are lean, but quite muscular and have a lot of energy. They are very fit and playful, and very large and quirky. They have all flowered very well here, with a lot of patience and some scars here and there. ' - Samuel Coppens

Spring is full of energy

“I adopted Spring and Wodan 2,5 years ago and they have been fed vegan food ever since. Spring is named after the season, because her bright, hopeful look made my winter depression disappear the second time I saw her at the shelter. In the meantime, it has revived more people. She is very lively, but also very gentle in handling.

Wotan lives in the forest

“I adopted Wodan and Lente 2,5 years ago and they have been fed vegan food ever since. Wotan is named after the god of wisdom and struggle: Odin. He would most likely have been sentenced to death in the shelter for “unrepentant biting”, but I was allowed to approach him, and although it left me with some scars during the first few months, I immediately had a tremendous amount of awe for him.

Jos shines when he walks in the sun

Jos is an adopted dog from Bulgaria and together with Léonie makes our lives so much richer. Already with his super sweet and
very dedicated foster family he got vegan dog food. Despite his background, he is a super soft cuddly ass who loves lounging on the couch as much as he likes long walks in the woods or on the beach, then he seems tireless.
He also likes to stay with his “bomma” and bompa ”where he is pampered with Léonie. Joske is a sweetheart.

Joske eats vegan, because we ourselves have been convinced vegan for 5 years and had a very difficult time with the animal nutrition of our 6 cats and 2 dogs. It didn't make sense. We switched the dogs first and later the cats. The cats were mainly fed fish-based food, but with the knowledge of the animal suffering that was no longer an option. Rick Scholtes' expertise helped us make the decision. 

Jos now gets Ami Dog chunks en Ami Dog wet food Red and Yellow. Occasionally Benevo Duo wet food which is slightly moistened with water.

We first gave the test bags for the dry kibble and there was the most enthusiastic response to Ami Dog. Amidog wet food is also a big favorite with both of our dogs. They still go crazy at every measure when I bring out the kibble and cans. I usually mix a small portion of kibble with a small portion of wet food, 3 times a day. For a change, I sometimes soak the chunks in boiled water with a very small amount of unsalted vegetable stock, with or without boiled vegetables, and then let it cool down. Jos's coat showed chapped and bald spots, but these have now disappeared. He shines when he walks in the sun. In terms of weight, he gained a lot of weight, but that was not so bad in the beginning. Now we make sure that he does not exceed the recommended amounts and his weight remains stable. Joske is a happy, healthy and energetic vegan dog. ” - Inez

We first gave the test bags for the dry kibble and the cats themselves showed a clear preference for Ami Cat. The transition went smoothly and without significant problems. The only noticeable difference was a little weight loss but that has stabilized. Furthermore, all cats are in good condition, with a healthy coat and enough energy. ” - Inez

Hansi was adopted together with Trudi but they are not from the same litter. Hansi is a handsome, large, slender tomcat, but of a timid nature. He does not like visitors and hustle and bustle in the house. His permanent hiding place is under the kitchen cupboards and he even removes the cupboard plinth for that… His great idol is our other tomcat Knäuli. Hansi mainly eats dry chunks of Ami Cat. He is the only one of our 6 cats who often misses the wet food. He is a healthy vegan handsome.

She really likes to eat her vegan food and you notice that in her funny joyful dances which she herself accompanies with singing, as soon as she realizes that I am preparing everything ...

Léonie has gone from lean to normal in weight since the vegan diet.

Food allergies are a major problem for many French bulls. We don't notice any of this at Léonie. If she has problems with her intestines or stomach, it is always due to something that she has secretly eaten somewhere (such as cat poop, for example…). Her skin and coat are in good condition, just like she is. ” - Inez

The only noticeable difference was a little weight loss but that has stabilized. Furthermore, all cats are in good condition, with a healthy coat and enough energy.

Knäuli is the first of our 6 adopted cats. He was found as an abandoned kitten in a holiday home in the South of France. The finders and we met each other up to Paris to take him over ... They gave him his name, which means “little ball of wool”. In the meantime he is a big, handsome tomcat. When he went vegan he lost some excess weight so that was an added benefit. Because Knäuli likes to eat and no kitchen cupboard is safe for him, he can break in like the best! When the bowls with Amicat chunks are empty, he is the first to wail loudly. ” - Inez

Sapphire switched at the age of 12

Sapphire eats vegan because I think it's healthier. There are no growth hormones and antibiotics in the kibble and there is no animal suffering behind vegan food. Sapphire is currently getting the Evolution Gourmet Fondue chunks. He likes it super. Have already had 2 other vegan kibble before. But unfortunately he didn't eat it. Glad we found this one now and I feel good that my love doesn't have to eat crap anymore. Because what I don't want in my body, I don't want to give to him. ” - Susanne Dam

Saar, the young vegan

Saar is our first dog. I myself eat vegan and I also strive for an existence as vegan as possible. The choice whether or not to get a dog was a long question…. In the end we went for our Saar. Then you come across information about nutrition. Dogs are descended from wolves, and wolves eat meat. Feeding meat didn't feel okay to me. If it really should for Saar; okay, but i continued looking. I follow Lisette Kreischer via Instagram and Facebook and I also met her personally and I thought: 'I will ask her'. She had sent me a nice story that made me stronger in my choice. I also made contact with VegaVriend and they also had a good and beautiful story about vegan dog food. With this information and by following my heart I dared to. In addition to the Benevo puppy kibble she currently also receives the reward cookies from Baby Latta Mix. A party for Saar and for me too! No smelly meat hands, but a nice vanilla scent. She now gets a lot of reward cookies, but we usually break the cookies into 5 pieces. So we use it for a long time.

From my environment I regularly get the comment: "It must be expensive!" Yes and no. If you get food in a cheap supermarket… Yes, we will lose more. When you buy a more expensive type of chunks, the price is not more expensive. You want your dog to be strong and healthy, don't you? The reward cookies are also inexpensive. 900 grams for 4,75 euros. Just go to a pet store and buy a tray of treat cookies there. A jar of 300 grams costs 3,55 euros! Then vegan is not more expensive!

Extra addition:
At VegaVriend I have noticed that you can always email. They think along and give advice where necessary. The orders we have placed are neatly shipped and have always received a snack as a gift. For example, we introduced Saar to the vegan pig ear and chew sticks. Everything we order (which of course is new for us and for Saar) is eaten with great pleasure. Although my environment does not advise raising the dog vegan, I am happy with VegaVriend and I do not want to switch to meat…. ” -

Quinty wants vegan food, not meat food

“Quinty gets vegan food, because we also eat and live vegan ourselves. As a result, we could no longer afford to feed our dogs dead animals, which often come from the livestock industry that we are so opposed to.

Quinty ate first V-dog Crunchy Nuggets, but that turned on something. Or we gave too much. Now we have her on Amì Dog and that works very well. 

She has always been a very headstrong eater. It took a long time to find a (meat) food that she wanted to eat. She does not have this 'problem' with the vegan food and that is very surprising. We use trial bags they do as trainers and there is no species they do not like. ” - Cindy Pitstra

Dobby is super energetic

“Dobby gets vegan food, because I am a confident vegan and I want to give my cat a healthy diet, without E-numbers, et cetera. At the moment he gets a mixture of Ami Catbenevo and Evolution Gourmet Fondue. Dobby only gets the kibble, the wet food is not his thing. He is very fond of the kibble. The first time I gave him some to taste, they couldn't run out fast enough. 

He now eats more, as it is getting colder, but he is super energetic with that food! Before that, because that is its nature, but digestion is smoother. ”  - Birgit

Spock, a picky eater

Spock eats vegan because our family is vegan and we don't want to support the terrible animal industry through the cat food.

Spock came to us as a kitten more than three years ago at the same time as his “half sister” Chopin from another litter. He is very affectionate, a sloth and loves to eat and sleep. From the beginning he was very picky with his food and he did not like homemade vegan wet food and the other brands of vegan wet food were also not appreciated. However, he is always very fond of dry food Amì Cat of benevo held and therefore gained too much weight. Fortunately, we have now discovered Evolution wet food, which he loves. By planning meals better and by exercising more, he now has a top weight again. But every morning he is still standing next to our bed shouting if he wants food or just attention. Like Chopin, he has a beautiful shiny coat and is very healthy. ”

Chopin's coat is shiny and soft

Chopin eats vegan, because our family is vegan, so we didn't want to support the terrible animal industry through the cat food. Chopin has been part of our family for over three years. She came to us as a kitten, together with her “half brother” Spock, who came from another litter. At that time our old male Acda was still alive, who had been getting the kibble for several years Amì Cat and homemade vegan wet food. For example, the “normal” kitten food quickly became less interesting and it was easy to switch.

Today Chopin eats Benevo chunks, Evolution Gourmet Fondue Cat Kibble and Evolution wet food. We tested several brands before we found the ideal food that really appealed to us. Finding tasty kibble was not that difficult, wet food was. Because Benevo duo en vegetarian food weren't favorites. Homemade wet food with eg chickpeas and rice and the necessary supplements was the solution for a while, but now the Evolution wet food is the winner. Too bad there are so few vegan snacks for cats! 

Chopin is a real cuddly cat. She likes to crawl in everything and also sleeps under the covers in our bed at night. She is also very active and especially likes to catch "dangerous" spiders, mosquitoes and other insects. She loves being brushed and her coat is also wonderfully shiny and soft. 

Our cats are both perfectly healthy and have a nice shiny coat. We regularly receive compliments from visitors and also the vet. We are very happy! ”

Gaston now has a good bowel movement

“Gaston is fed vegan food, because I am a vegan myself and after a lot of research and comparing food, I have discovered that vegan dog food can be a complete food that contains everything dogs need. Healthy pets without having to let other animals suffer as well as a smaller ecological footprint make it logical for me to make the decision.

Gaston was adopted 8 months ago. He was very thin because he had experienced a lot of stress in the past and is therefore very anxious and nervous. He often suffered from diarrhea. Once Gaston joined the pack, we gradually transitioned him to vegetable chunks. He immediately ate them with full flavor. His coat shines beautifully, his bowel movements are regular and regular and his weight no longer fluctuates. A happy dog ​​in his new vegan family.

My dogs are currently being fed dry food from Yarrah and Green Petfood. My experience with the vegetable food is a beautiful shiny coat, dogs that maintain their weight, energetic, less intestinal complaints (not even diarrhea at menopause). 

In terms of price, I certainly don't pay more than if I bought animal chunks and snacks. I am very satisfied with my choice and hope that in the future there will be even more awareness about veganism in dogs and that it is certainly not unhealthy. At the moment there is still too much the idea that dogs are pure carnivores and that they would be short of anything on vegan food. My four-legged friends are living proof that this is certainly not the case. ” - Lindsey van den Eynde

Frits also maintains his weight nicely with these chunks, even after his castration last year.

Joe is doing well on V-dog

"I am vegan myself. What convinced me about vegan dog food are experts on social media, such as Instagram and Youtube. What makes me permanent with vegan dog food is that she does it so well; she has a shiny coat and is perfectly weighted and has a fresh breath. The faeces can be cleaned up well. Joe gets chunks of it V-Dog. She visibly enjoys her food and I also notice that she eats it differently. She used to be very shocked before she ate vegan, but now she tastes more and takes longer to eat it.- Eve

Toby is very sporty

Toby is fed vegan food for ethical reasons. Toby also got diarrhea easily with animal food, the vet thought it was not a bad idea and so the choice was quickly made. He is getting at the moment Greta chunks and Ami Dog wet food (all four flavors). 

Toby is doing very well on his diet, he is an energetic dog and that is why we run a lot together. While running, he wears a special pull harness that is attached to my hip belt with an elastic line. Running in this way with your dog is also called Canicross / Canitrail, the dog may also pull. We run an average of 20-40km a week and our longest trail so far was 17km. We walk a lot less in the summer, of course, because it is often too hot for him. But we are already looking forward to the start of the season in September! ” - Marcella

Bowie loves Amì

“Bowie gets vegan food because I can't afford to buy meat, because I think meat or animal food with meat stinks and because I don't want to contribute in any way to the meat industry. You have influence when you spend money. When the industry does not receive funding in any way, they are forced to change direction. So I feed Bowie vegan food for emotional, rational and practical reasons. 

Bowie has both Amì Cat as a benevo had. But mainly Amì Cat. She loves it! She always comes to ask when it's dinner time. It does her good too. When I got her she was still overweight but Amì put her on a healthy weight. Her coat also looks healthy, full and shiny. She has little to no hairballs or hair loss. Recently I also tried some canned food. She got very excited about it Benevo duo. ” - Sabine Zwanink

Mara has been eating vegan for over 8 years

Mara has been eating vegan for over 8 years. Eight years ago she came to the Netherlands from Spain. I immediately switched her to vegan food (Yarrah en Ami Dog). That went well immediately. I don't know what kind of food she had at the shelter in Spain, but I noticed from the start that everything tasted and she's doing fine on it. I never felt like anything was missing.

I myself have been a vegan for 16 years, so it was obvious to me that no animal has to suffer for human needs. When I started taking care of Mara, I naturally studied the possibilities of giving animal-free - vegan - food. It was possible. I also knew others who did this and had good experiences. Why would you have animals killed for the food of an animal you provide if it is not necessary? In short; it just makes sense to give vegan food. Reactions about vegan feeding of 'pets' often say that it is not natural, but what is 'natural' at all about a well-bred dog that is physiologically very different from its ancestor, the wolf. For every animal it is about nutrients. And with vegan food you can get the nutritional fulfill the needs of the dog and not cooperate with the industry that exploits animals structurally. Then why wouldn't you? 

Currently Mara is a fan of V-dog Crunchy nuggets. I often order it in combination with Greta, which she also likes very much. I used to teach Yarrah and Ami Dog. Sometimes she still gets it. Wet food gets it from Yarrah or Amidog. Mara is not that picky;) ”- Alex Romijn

Esmée shines in her skin

Esmeetje has been with us for over a month now and she came from a home where she got raw meat. We really did not like that, but to continue with her dry granules did not really seem appropriate to convince her of a vegan lifestyle :-). So now all three (including Charlot and Momo) get a can of wet food on top of the Yarrah dry food. benevo or in VegDog (Esmée loves that). From day two, Esmée was already sold and she really eats it with taste. 

A few days ago, the people who took care of her relocation came by and they couldn't believe how Esmée's coat had changed. They kept petting her because she had become so soft. They said she 'shined in her skin' 🙂

That made us very proud and we secretly hope again that this is partly due to her nutrition… ” - Vanessa and Heiko

Momo likes all snacks

“We have only noticed the benefits of vegan food so far. With every dog ​​(see also Charlotje and Esmee) we switched to the Yarrah kibble immediately after the adoption and they tolerate it well, the bowel movements are normal. They do have a little more stool. They love to eat the vegan food, especially in combination with wet food, soy yogurt and nutritional yeast flakes.

Momo had a stomach problem and reflux when he got to us. Was very bad in the beginning but after a few weeks Yarrah we can say that we have this under control and he feels a lot better.

Momo gets vegan food, among other things, because we had a good experience with our former English bulldog: Ebony. When Ebony was nine years old (and didn't eat vegan yet), she was gone. She had a lot of joint problems and little energy. We then switched to the vegan kibble from Yarrah and we got a new dog! She felt very good and went everywhere again. Ebony turned 12 and has remained active to the last. We are therefore very satisfied with a vegan diet for the dog. ” - Vanessa and Heiko

Charlotje has been strengthened with vegetarian food

Charlotje was adopted by us in 2018 and since she has been with us, she has been eating vegan. We are also vegan ourselves and do not think you can save one animal and then kill another animal to feed your own 'rescued' animal. That's why Charlotje now gets the dry food from Yarrah in combination with canned food, usually Benevo Duo en Ami Dog green. She also receives Alpro soy mild & creamy and nutritional yeast flakes.

When Charlotje first came to us, she was very thin. We immediately gave her the vegetarian chunks and in the meantime she has already gained a few kilos. She is very active and running is really in her blood. She is very cheerful and really pulls the other two (Momo and Esmée) along to be more active.

What we also noticed, when she first came to us, is that she had a growth under her armpit and her teeth showed a lot of plaque. We went to the vet for that and he suggested to anesthetize her to clean her teeth and use the anesthetic to remove the tumor. What seems? Since she's been with us, her teeth have become much whiter and cleaner and believe it or not, the growth has completely disappeared! We can only attribute this to her diet? The vet has no explanation but I am really convinced that nutrition has played a role.

She is very grateful when she gets a little extra and can really enjoy the chew sticks from soopa, these with banana and peanut butter are her favorite. Unlike Momo, this is really pure chewing pleasure for her and she lasts a long time with the stick. Nice to see!'' - Vanessa and Heiko

Yena, switched at a late age

“Yena is currently receiving the Ultra Sensitive chunks from Yarrah, because I have the belief that I want to contribute as little as possible to animal suffering.

Yena used to always receive 'normal' animal feed (ie dry chunks and fresh meat). However, I myself have been a vegetarian for over 12 years and since the summer of 2018 also vegan, on principle because I do not support the animal suffering caused by the bio-industry and not through financial support, by buying animal products, in wish to hold out. The switch to vegan was partly due to a relationship with a convinced vegan and she also provided me with the necessary information about the dog as an omnivore. That perspective made me decide to switch to vegan feed for Yena as well, simply because this also means less animal suffering in the world. The switch went without problems, she likes to eat the food and it is also good for her. Healthy shiny coat, still vital, in short: a happy healthy doggy. Even in their old age, dogs clearly appreciate healthy and ethically responsible food! ” - Erwin de Ryke

Pooh eats home-cooked meals

Currently Pooh Eet eats homemade vegan organic food, including homemade cookies + addition of V-completeVegeyeast and while traveling Evolution (wet food).

"mr. Pooh.

We've been through so much together. It's been around since my 2nd book (and shines in almost all ;-)). When we enter a place, people often first look at him and then look up. He gets all the attention and my heart sings when that happens.

He is about 12,5 years old. We don't really know for sure. Nobody knew where he came from or what he had been through. About 10 years ago I entered a room where he was staying. There were many dogs, but no Pooh. We had to find him. In the end he was hidden behind the pot stove. I saw a little frightened creature with some scratches here and there. He looked up at me with his big brown eyes and there it was, that feeling that I knew that we would continue our life's path side by side, that I would take care of him and love him.

Since I had been vegan for many years, I decided to feed Pooh with vegan food. Purely intuitive. I hadn't done any research at the time. I gave him organic Yarrah vegan kibble. Because that was what I could find then. But Pooh's shivering got worse and over the years I tried to relax him with herbs, tried everything, visited several vets (which showed no results) until after about 7 years I ended up with a naturalist. He told me that Pooh needed raw meat. I was so insecure and afraid that Pooh was missing something that I decided to take his advice. Maybe it wasn't natural to feed a dog vegan after all, I thought. Pooh loved the meat, my heart was crying. At one point, Pooh developed all kinds of skin conditions and his bowel movements turned into a too common bout of diarrhea. I was not comfortable. I did another round of vets, but no one could find anything. Until at one point I read a story about a sanctuary that had just saved a number of goats from slaughter. Beautiful, spirited kids that would likely end up as dog food. Pooh's food. That was that. I cried everything together, looked at Pooh and told him that we would explore together, find the best vegan food for him and that it would nourish and cure him well. I dived into the books, the research and it turned out; the years had caught up with me. Vegan food for dogs was fine and not only that, it also seemed to be medicine for many. I didn't need more. I went into the kitchen and started developing recipes. A number of deliciously balanced organic compositions were released that he has been enjoying for a long time now. His ailments disappeared like snow in the sun, as did his shivers. Had it been the intention all along that I would just cook for him? It makes sense. I am deeply sorry for feeding raw meat to Pooh for 1,5 years. I have learned from it, will never do it again and my confidence and faith in plants as food and medicine for humans and dogs has grown even deeper thanks to this learning experience. ” - Lisette Kreischer

Both Tinka and Fico like almost everything and prefer to eat their snack outside on the grass. I recently brought the dogs to the vet for a dental check-up and it all looked fine, very little tartar. I also get a good message from the groomer: She still thinks my dogs coat is the same.

Vegan food works wonders for Fico

“Fico eats vegan, because I myself (after having first eaten vegetarian for 30 years) have been eating vegan for 18 years now and I increasingly opposed feeding meat to the dogs. 

Our previous dogs were vegetarian, but Fico remained skinny with everything we fed. At the time, I eventually started feeding Fico fresh meat that brought him to a normal weight. However, I had more and more trouble with all that meat. When I heard about vegan dog food, I went to Rick Scholtes' lecture and that gave me the final push. I then brought all kinds of test bags to see if Fico and Tinka liked it. They both liked everything. With my vet (who is very much in favor of feeding fresh meat, but who understood my aversion to it), I looked at the food on this website and she said, "It's all in there, fine." The changeover went smoothly. 

Fico is currently eating the chunks of it Greta, wet food from To me en yarrah, fresh vegetables and all kinds of vegan nibbles.

Fico had osteoarthritis in his front leg at a very young age. He regularly got trauma or Chinese herbs for this when he was very limping again. Then the question was always: "Can he go for a walk?"

The vegan diet works wonders. Since he gets that, I've only given him trauma once and he could always go for a walk. When he gets out of his basket, he sometimes limps a little bit, but much less than a year and a half ago, before he started eating vegan.

Fico keeps his weight nicely, given the past I was afraid that he would become skinny again. Tinka is also doing very well on the Greta chunks. We often get compliments for both dogs for looking so good.

I can feed my dogs guilt-free and with pleasure again!

My joint pain also disappeared when I started eating vegan 18 years ago, but to see such a huge improvement in my dog ​​now is really fantastic. ”- Helen Jonker

Written on 25/3/2019

Update 2-10-2019:
“Fico is doing so well, he will turn 12 in a month! He will never limp again, even if he has walked or been lying for a while! Amazing when you consider how young he already had severe osteoarthritis in his front leg and how often he suffered from it. Until he started eating vegan 2 years ago!

I am so happy that we switched. Now I can feed them without feeling guilty. And they love everything. ”

Poet loves Vegusto

My cat likes vegan food from the start. He scraps his food away and he likes wet food even better. When I first gave him chunks of fish, Poet was very thin, his faeces turned orange and I was not happy with all the chemical junk he ingested. When I switched to vegan kibble, Poet became a lot healthier; his poo had returned to its normal color, his fur softened and began to shine and he gained a kilo. He gets a mix of it Amì Cat en benevo chunks.

Months later, he is still doing very well! Never again have animals to be slaughtered for my boy. 

I recommend everyone who is interested in vegan pet food and / or wants to start feeding their pet vegan to do their own research first. Make sure you know what food you have to give your animal to get the right substances and do not just experiment. Talk to other people who have vegan pets and see how they do (the Facebook group “Vegan Pets” is a good place for this.) ”- Elisa Werthenbach

Savannah chews her kibble well

Savannah lived the first period of her life on the streets in Southern Europe, just like many other cats and dogs there. Life there is anything but pleasant for stray animals. The same goes for the animals in the livestock industry. I want Savannah to have a better life and I want that to all animals.

The young lady now gets a mix of Ami Cat and Benevo cat food, which she eats with taste. Madam loves to eat, but when she has had enough she stops and starts lounging or playing. Savannah ate the same kibble mix before she came to me, so I cannot compare that with other food. My previous cats did not eat vegan kibble and I did notice that they had less appetite from time to time or were sometimes too greedy and then outbreaked the excess. They preferred to swallow the kibble whole when given the chance. At Savannah I notice more rest during the meal and she chews it well, even though the kibble is small.

She is a happy and content cat and often, as now, she comes to sit or lie down with me. Visitors love her without exception. Savannah loves to lounge around, but also likes to be active. Everything that rustles or moves has her interest and then she runs and jumps that it is sweet pleasure. Her favorite toy? The laces of my vegetarian boots! ” - Annemieke

Crosby in excellent condition with Yarrah vega

Crosby has been on vegan food for about a year now. The owner of Lulu drew my attention to it. Our Crosby actually eats all the food we serve him, he is an easy eater. We had him neutered a year and a half ago and our concern was: 'Would he not get too fat and his coat would not suffer after a castration?'. Indeed, he did gain weight and his fur began to tangle. Now, after a year yarrah he has lost 4 kilos, his coat is beautiful and shiny again and his condition is excellent. ” - Yontie Helders

Pepper keeps its weight well with Greta

“For us it was a logical step to feed Pepper vegan, because I started living a vegan lifestyle myself. When we started with vegan kibble, Pepper fell off. That was nice in the beginning, a few kilos less, but she quickly became thinner very quickly. She then got Yarrah vega (the old chunk) and after advice via Facebook we switched to Edgar (now Greta). It went much better on this food and she also gained a nice healthy and stable weight. We are very satisfied and Pepper likes her kibble very much! ” - Miranda de Velde Harsenhorst

Snoopy has been eating vegan for over 13 years

“Vegan food was already available 13 years ago, but much less available than today. I had thought to slowly switch from the food that we received from the shelter to the vegan food. However, Snoopy liked the vegan food much better, so we switched to the vegan food immediately after 1 day. She hasn't eaten anything else since. Currently she is getting a mix of Ami CatBenevo Kat and Evolution (chunks). Every now and then she gets some wet food vegetarian food of Evolution.

My vet does an annual age check nowadays. For this, some blood is always taken and the urine is examined. For the time being she is doing well. We are starting to notice that she is getting older. In her case that means that she has become a bit cozier (wants more attention from us) and she hardly goes outside in the winter. Instead, she is lying on our bed enjoying the sun or sitting with her boss who often works at home. ”  - Rick Scholtes

Teddy loves the Vegusto sausage!

Teddy is from Spain. He didn't have such a nice start there, but nowadays he enjoys life to the full. He likes nothing better than to run: next to the bike, through the woods or on the beach. He's also a big believer in cuddling: after a long walk, he loves to lie on the couch together and be petted.

Teddy was already fed vegan kibble before he came to us. He is a fairly picky eater: he does not eat 'people food', but likes most of the kibble (such as the chunks of Amì Dog small size of Greta small size). As a snack he prefers the Vegusto Vegi-Dog maxi sausage, but he likes the pawtato mace also very tasty. ” - Rick Scholtes

Rani likes all kinds of vegan food

Rani is originally from New Delhi, India. Unfortunately she was hit there and that is why she now has to miss a leg. That is also the reason that she eventually ended up in the Netherlands and subsequently with us. Since Rani has been with us, she has been eating vegan kibble. Rani likes many types of food, such as the chunks of Benevo (both original as a biological), Greta en yarrah. She is especially fond of wet food, such as Benevo duo en Yarrah canned food. She gets that mixed with her food in the evening. ” - Rick Scholtes

Hannah likes to eat vegan spreads!

Hannah came to live with us six months after Snoopy. Hannah was (and is) a very scared pussy. She came from somewhere where a lot of cats have been taken from the house. She had some 'start-up problems' in the beginning that upset her stomach. After some special food from the vet it all worked out and she was always fed vegan food.

She gets vegan food, because I don't want other animals to suffer for her. At the moment she gets a mix of it Ami CatBenevo Kat en (chunks). Every now and then she gets some wet food vegetarian food of Evolution.

My vet now performs an annual age check. For this, some blood is always taken and the urine is examined. So far the results of these studies have been excellent. Hannah is doing fine and she eats her tasty treats every day. ” - Rick Scholtes

Vegan food is a godsend for Jip

Jip is getting VeggieDog at the moment. Previously he had Fitness Trainer 3 but he started vomiting if there was too long between meals, especially at night. The chunks of Fit pressed he gets as a snack. 

Since Jip is 6 months old, he has a lot of allergy complaints. It was quite a quest to find out what for. He appears to have an allergy to dust mites and brok mites, but also food allergies. After elimination with different animal species, it turned out that he reacts allergic to any animal protein if he is given it for a longer period of time. It went reasonably well on vet chunks, but I still wanted to try vegetarian chunks. We also eat vegetarian food, so we also liked the idea. I discussed with our super nice vet whether this was a good idea and whether he would not be short of anything. She checked the ingredients and thought it was a good idea. Jip is doing great and has far fewer complaints. The vet is so enthusiastic that she has recommended it to more dogs with allergies.

The nice thing is that Jip also seems to love fruit and vegetables. He thinks the chunks are super tasty and all the vegetarian snacks too. In fact, he doesn't seem to have any interest in meat at all. Where he used to fish a carcass in nature, he now comes with banana peels.

I see a lot of other dogs for my work and they also like the veggie chunks and snacks. ” - Willemien

Lulu is no longer itchy

“Lulu comes from the shelter and had problems with her skin when we got her, she scratched herself a lot and also had bald spots. The vet warned that this probably wouldn't go away. I once read that yarrah has been making vegetable chunks for animals that suffer from their skin for a long time, so we tried that. It's fine, Lulu no longer has itching and a good coat. 

Lulu likes to eat varied, so we often add some of our own meal to the kibble so that she has something different every day.

When we have dogs visiting, we always enjoy eating. I have not yet met a dog that is not enthusiastic. Several acquaintances from the park have switched to vegetable chunks because they know Lulu ”- jacqueline
