Can You Find Good Vegan Dog Food North of the Border?

Canadians love their pups, and if you’re a vegan Canuck, you might be wondering if you can feed your dog a vegetarian or vegan diet. The good news is that there’s plenty ofevidence dogs can thrive on vegan or vegetarian dog food. The not so good news is that this type of dog food can be very expensive to buy in Canada, likely because much of it is imported from the US.

All is not lost though — we completed our quest and have managed to uncover a couple of vegetarian and vegan dog food brands that won’t force you to take out a second mortgage just to feed the beast!  We’ll guide you through the most popular vegetarian and vegan dog food brands and products in Canada, so you can make an informed choice that meets both your dog’s needs and your budget — although we know your dogs are worth every cent!

You’ll find information on the most popular Canadian dog food varieties including:

We’ll start the guide by comparing the prices, nutritional content, and average reviews of each brand, then we’ll dive into the details of each one.

A Few Points to Note About Vegan and Vegetarian Dog Foods

You will need to ensure that any dog food you buy is “nutritionally complete” — that means it can provide all the nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and other things your dog needs. If you buy food that’s not nutritionally complete, you will need to supplement it yourself, so check the label.

Consult your vet before moving onto a completely plant-based diet for your dog — although vegan dog foods are suitable in almost all cases, some individual dogs may have unique dietary needs. If your pups are on a vegan diet, ensure that you get their urine tested regularly. Some dog breeds are more prone to get alkaline urine on a vegan diet, which can cause urinary stones.

Vegetarian and vegan dog food can be a lot more pricey than regular dog food, so we’ve shown roughly how much it will cost to feed your dog the different brands. Please note, these are just approximate values for guidance and comparison, and may not be appropriate for your dog — please see the notes at the end of this guide for further details, and always speak to your vet about your dog’s individual dietary and nutritional needs.

You can often get dog food at lower prices if you subscribe through Amazon, Chewy, and the like — we’ve indicated roughly how long food will last for different dog sizes, so take that as an approximation of how often you would need to reorder. If food comes in a variety of sizes, you will always get better value by buying larger bags — an important point to bear in mind.

We hope you find this useful!

Conclusion

Vegetarian and vegan dog food in Canada is very expensive, with a couple of exceptions. The Evolution brand is the best priced, although Nature's Recipe isn't too expensive either. V-Dog, one of the highest-quality brands available, is expensive to buy in Canada, and if you're looking to feed your dog from cans, the prices increase very quickly.

From a nutrition standpoint, Evolution and V-Dog both do very well, although Nature's Recipe also has a high protein content. The canned food is much less protein dense, which can make it less economical.

Amazon reviewers loved V-Dog and Nature's Recipe, unfortunately PetGuard did not do as well.

We really hope you’ve found this useful, and that it’s a useful guide to feeding your dog the right vegan food.
