Vegan Dog Diet:
Fact or Myth?
There is a wide misconception that we need to feed meat to our dogs. But dogs don’t need to eat meat, what they need is quality protein. Lucky for us, plants are loaded with protein. More and more studies continue to come out along with our own customers proving that vegan food can be healthier and promote longevity for our best friends.
Does My Dog Need to Eat Meat?
No, your pup doesn’t need meat! Dogs have evolved from wolves. Far, far from wolves. And they’ve become omnivores along the way. Alongside humans, the evolved dog can process protein from animals and plants. Our food is nutritionally-complete, high in protein and 100% plant-based.
Yeast: A Plant-Based Dog Food Protein
The secret behind Wild Earth’s high-protein, vegan dog food is the #1 ingredient on our nutrition label: YEAST. These “tiny miracles” are miniature protein factories—they pump out ultra-high quality protein, grow easily at scale, and require significantly fewer resources.
The protein generated by our yeast is of the highest quality and contains all 10 essential amino acids dogs need, so it’s every bit as nutritious as meat-based protein, with none of the downsides. It’s time we ditch meat and all the problems it causes.

FAQs About Wild Earth Vegan Dog Food
It’s often thought that dogs are exclusive meat-eaters. This belief stems partly from the fact that dogs are related to wolves, and from the fact that dogs belong to the scientific order Carnivora, which includes wolves and other meat-eating species. Despite its name, this order also includes herbivores and omnivores, such as giant pandas and raccoons, according to Tufts University’s Cummings Veterinary Medical Center.
The truth is that dogs have evolved a number of differences from wolves over the millennia. One of those differences, according to a study published in Nature, is that the genomes of dogs have evolved to not only enable them to digest plant-based starches, but to thrive on foods that include a wide variety of ingredients including fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, meats, poultry, fish and more, making them true omnivores.
Dogs can get their protein from multiple sources, because dogs are omnivores — scavenging omnivores, to be exact. Science shows that dogs evolved alongside humans over tens of thousands of years, developing gut enzymes that allow them to digest a wide variety of foods.
From a biological perspective, dogs lack most of the metabolic adaptations to a strict diet of animal flesh that is seen in true carnivores such as cats or ferrets. Compared to true carnivores, dogs produce more of the enzymes needed for starch digestion, and can easily utilize vitamin A and D from plant sources, just as people do.
The truth is, that the digestive system of dogs (and humans) doesn’t care where the protein comes from — it matters that the protein is complete, high quality, bio-available, and easily digestible. In independent studies, our dog food tested high in digestibility, meaning your dog absorbs all the needed healthy protein and nutrients with every meal.
Essential fatty acids (such as omega 3, 6, 9) can be found in both plant and animal sources.
Healthy oils and fats, such as those found in canola, sunflower and flaxseed, are an essential part of any dog’s diet. Oils derived from plant sources provide a healthy mix of unsaturated fat (source of energy) and omega fatty acids -3, -6, -9, which are important for maintaining healthy skin and a radiant coat.
While there are some common ingredients to other plant-based diets, our food provides higher levels of specific nutrients – such as proteins, digestible fibers and omega fatty acids – than other options.
Yes, Wild Earth Complete Protein dog food meets the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for Maintenance.
Wild Earth believes this is a baseline requirement and will always strive to exceed AAFCO guidelines.
Furthermore, we have taken both AAFCO and European guidelines into account in the development of our formulation to ensure exceptional product quality and safety.
