UK Vet Help To Feed Your Puppy Correctly

Puppies have such specific and different requirements at each growth phase compared to adult dogs and it is easy to get it wrong when choosing a plant-based diet for your puppy on your own. We offer something completely unique for you – a tailormade diet for your puppy’s size, age, weight, future growth and preferences. It is all worked out through the partnership of UK based vet Arielle teaming with one of Germany’s top vet nutritionists Dr Lisa Walther.

I send her the information about your puppy, and she sends me the recipe and exact quantities to feed not just a homemade wholesome puppy food recipe, but also premium dry food to make it easy for you.  We post you the delicious foods and supplements needed to get you started on a healthy sustainable plant-based future for your puppy! I also offer you a one on one teleconsult to discuss your puppy’s diet and all the fine detail is worked out for you so that together we get everything 100% balanced, and delicious for your new puppy!

“A big concern in getting a puppy was the impact of her food on animals and the environment so I’m so very happy to have found you.”

Claire, Belfast

Oakley's Owner

“Peaches just loves her homemade food and it is great to know it has all the nutrients she needs to grow and be healthy. Your recipes have enabled me to feed her a plant-based diet that doesn’t require any other animals to suffer and that minimises the impact on the environment.

Thank you for all your help and support”

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT FEEDING YOUR PUPPY PLANT-BASED
heart green We all love our new puppies and only want the best for them and these diets are what we as vets would feed our own puppies – sustainably and kindly. Hopefully these FAQ’s answer all the questions you may have but please let us know if you need any further reassurance by e-mailing our vet Arielle at info@dogsgo-plantbased.co.uk, although our Green Paws Package does include a FREE 25 minute teleconsult or Zoom consultation.
Can we homecook for our new puppy?

heart green We admire any owner dedicated enough to homecook for their new puppy as it does offer them the best start in life. It is possible with our tailormade recipe that we send you for homecooking with fresh natural ingredients that you choose so that you are completely in control.

All in VeluxeOur homemade recipe is tailormade to you and your puppies’ preferences using wholesome ingredients such as lentils, oats, fresh green vegetables, vibrant orange vegetables, and the recommended addition of rice protein powder to ensure adequate amounts of protein for your growing puppy.

Where a plant-based diet lacks certain nutrients such as Zinc, Taurine, l-Carnitine, Vit D3, Calcium and Methionine; these are added in the form of the All-In-Veluxe supplement from VegDog that we send you with the tailormade recipe for your puppy.

We also include additional supplements in your package that your growing puppy needs such as extra Calcium and Phosphorus (in the perfect ratio of 1.3:1) as well as just the right amounts of Copper and Zinc supplement in a combined tablet. Leave it all up to our specialist vet nutritionist to get it just right for your puppy and up to us to supply the delicious recipes and post you the products to get started.

The diet made using the VegDog All-In-Veluxe supplement is 100% hypoallergenic – no corn, wheat or soya and we include the supplements needed for your puppy to get you started.

Why can we not just feed Benevo puppy?

heart green When I first began promoting plant-based dog food, I had so many owners ask about what to feed their puppy and if Benevo puppy was adequate as it is currently the only puppy plant-based food available in the UK.

benevo puppyI did not have the answer, so I asked Dr Lisa to run the nutrients through her food analyser. She replied saying that Benevo kept the full breakdown of the amino acid component of the food hidden. They also offer just one food for all sizes of puppies at any growth stage which is also a concern as different sized puppies have such different nutritional needs at every phase of their growth.

We felt that Benevo although adequate, just did not offer the best for your puppy. It is the only dry plant-based puppy food available in the UK and it is affordable and puppies do well on it, but our option is to offer an even healthier alternative that is tailormade to your puppy.

Greta dog foodAs Dr Lisa Walther knows the full nutrient value of the Greta premium adult dog food from Vegan4Dogs;  it is her first choice to give puppies the best start – and it is VERY tasty, but as it is an adult premium food, it does require the addition of supplements tailormade to your puppy’s weight and growth phase. We keep it in stock for you to purchase from us.

It is SOYA FREE | CORN FREE | WHEAT FREE so is 100%  hypoallergenic for sensitive puppies. Its protein source comes from easily digestible organic rice combined with potatoes, as well as pea protein, lentils, sunflower seeds and flax seeds.  The delicious flavour comes from carrots, beetroot and the herb lovage.

It is highly digestible as it has the addition of a herb called savory (that helps diminish the side effects of lentils and gives the food a smell reminiscent of oregano), as well as papaya leaves and fructooligosaccharides to act as essential prebiotics. The algae Schizochytrium limacinum provides omega 3 fatty acids (DHA).

With L-carnitine and Taurine as well as essential vitamins like B12, plant-based D3 and minerals, Greta is a complete and balanced adult dog food. It is ideal to start your puppy on this high quality dry food ALONG WITH THE ADDED SUPPLEMENTS SPECIFIC TO YOUR PUPPY  that are needed for your growing puppy.

We include the supplements in your package that your growing puppy needs such as extra Calcium and Phosphorus (in the perfect ratio of 1.3:1) as well as just the right amounts of Copper and Zinc supplement in a combined tablet. Leave it all up to our specialist vet nutritionist to get it just right for your puppy and up to us to supply the delicious recipes and post you the products to get started.

How much does it cost?

heart green The cost of our Green Paws Package is just £132 and this includes the homemade and 100% hypoallergenic recipe specific to your puppy, a 500g tub of the Vegdog supplement, the recipe needed to feed Greta dry food for your puppy, and 4kgs of Greta dry food to get you started as well as the supplements needed with the exact amounts to feed with the weight increases of your puppy.

Both diets are carefully formulated by a veterinary nutritionist and you then receive advice and help from Arielle our UK based vet with a 25 minute FREE teleconsult or Zoom chat with Arielle to discuss your puppy’s new diet!

We keep growth charts of your puppy to ensure adequate growth stages with the diets, and there are follow-on costs of £55 every 3-4 months to update the recipes needed for your puppy as they grow through the various stages. These follow-on costs every 3-4 months are for the recipes only and do not include food, supplements or a teleconsult as sent in the first Green Paws package.

Our Green Paws Package also includes some high nutrient homemade hypoallergenic dog treats to spoil your new puppy:)

Will my new puppy get everything they need from a plant-based diet?

heart green Absolutely! Puppies need completely different levels of nutrients initially for adequate growth. Between 2 and 12 weeks, they lose the natural immunity from their mother’s milk, but their own immunity is not fully developed. They need adequate levels of natural immunity boosters at this stage such as Vit B and E, as well as Omega 3’s for brain and skin development.

As they grow, puppies need the right nutritional balance of calcium and phosphorus in their diet (1.3:1). Puppies’ bodies cannot regulate how much calcium they take in – and so when they are under six months old, they cannot protect themselves against excessive intake. Too much calcium can be as detrimental to their development as too little, so the amounts measured by our nutritionist are just right for your puppy to prevent any bone deformities.

Their diet is much higher in protein compared to an adult diet, but this is not a concern in a plant-based diet as rice protein (80% protein) is added to the Greta dry food to ensure adequate levels of protein for your puppy. We do not supply rice protein powder, but send you the exact amounts to feed and it is easy to purchase from BuyWholeFoodsOnline.

A plant-based diet also tends to result in an alkaline environment in your puppy’s digestive tract as well as resulting in alkaline urine. This makes your puppy more prone to a puppy bladder infection (cystitis), especially in our little female puppies. The Greta food and the Vegdog supplement contain added Methionine – a very important amino acid found normally in meat and added to help acidify the urine of your puppy and prevent bladder infections. Benevo puppy does not have this important addition.

Puppies have a greater nutritional need for Copper, Zinc, Calcium and Phosphorus and we supply all of these in just the right quantities for your puppy as tablets and powders, so you do not have to worry that your puppy is not getting the very best.

What about Omega 3's?

heart green Omega 3 Algae Oil CapsulesWe advise using Algae oil capsules that are the purest form of Omega 3’s. The ones we recommend contain pure DHA and EPA fatty acids and no additional Vitamin A that is supplied in adequate amounts  in the Vegdog supplement.

Omega 3’s are important for brain development as well as fur and skin growth and the Algae capsules that we recommend with their ocean ‘umami’ flavour and smell, are very palatable to puppies.

How long do we wait for the recipe to arrive when we place an order?

heart green We send the details off to Dr Lisa Walther as soon as we receive your completed form. She takes approximately a week to send it back to us and it takes us just a day to translate the diet accurately for you from german and e-mail it to you specific to your puppy.
We use DPD delivery to post the food and supplements to you that you will need as they are a carbon neutral delivery service and the most sustainable local delivery service. This is all included in the Green Paws cost of £132.

“I have not been happy with the current plant-based puppy options available especially with Jake being such an active pup. We started him on the Green Paws Challenge and he loves the Greta dry food and by adding the supplements in the soya yoghurt according to his weight, I know that he is getting everything he needs to support his growth.

Thanks to all of your support we have a very happy and healthy boy eating food he loves!”
