Veganism Is For Animals, Too!

Plant Power doesn’t only apply to humans, it applies to animals too!

Research indicates that “ailments associated with meat consumption in humans, such as allergies, cancer, and kidney, heart, and bone problems, also affect many nonhumans”—such as our dogs.

The answer? A vegan, nutrient-rich, plant-based diet—for dogs!

Kona & Banksy—The Exemplar Dogs

Glenn Whitehead, cofounder of PMK, and his family have two furry-friends of their own: Kona the Golden Retriever and Banksy the rescue Boxer Beagle mixed breed.

Just like everyone else in their family, Kona and Banksy only get the best of the best when it comes to food.

“We treat our dogs’ diet the same way we treat our own,” says Glenn, “we don’t feed them anything that’s unethically sourced, that contains animals or animal byproducts, or that isn’t completely healthy.”

For these reason and more, Kona and Banksy are fed V-Dog.

V-Dog, for The Very Best Dogs

V-Dog is an American company, based in California, that makes “premium products that are animal & cruelty-free and don’t do bad things to our planet.”

Kona & Blanksy

Founded by vegans in 2005, this family owned and operated company is committed to what they call the win-win-win lifestyle, which stands “for the animals, for the planet and for the opportunity to live a more peaceful life full of abundant health and happiness.”

Made for animals by animal lovers, V-Dog kibble is:

  • Easily digestible
  • Free from animal products & by-products
  • Free from corn, soy & meat

Feeding your dog V-Dog will not only benefit their health, but it will also minimize their carbon footprint and help improve the welfare of our planet.

Pondering Over Protein?

Protein intake is a common concern that pet owners, and humans alike, have when switching to a plant-based diet.

But, there’s no need to worry, because legumes, beans (from black beans to chickpeas to lentils), whole grains, fruits, vegetables, soy products, V-Dog kibble, and other vegan-friendly foods are packed with protein.

V-Dog’s kibble is made with a highly-digestible plant protein formula and packs 24% protein.

If you plan on making homemade kibble for your dog, remember that there are some ingredients that should not be included—though healthy for us humans, they can be
detrimental to your dog’s health.

Veganism is for Dogs, Too!

At PMK, we believe that veganism is a lifestyle that we can just as easily adopt for our pets as we can for ourselves. Feeding your furry-friends wholesome, organic, and ethically-made meals will drastically improve their health and well-being, so why not give it a try!
