"The preference for feeding pets vegan is not going away, and whilst processed pet foods come nowhere near close enough to providing everything a pet needs on a vegan diet, fresh pet food can do. DoGood have carefully considered all aspects of providing the protein, nutrients and important essential fatty acid hydration, not to mention water-based hydration,
that a dogs' body needs to function optimally. If you are set on feeding your adult dog vegan, this really is the only way to do it safely. After years of research into vegan pet food, decades as a pet industry nutrition consultant and a vegan myself, I don't say this lightly."

"pet food companies are
to be commended for bringing to market such nutritionally sound alternatives"
“The environmental and animal welfare impacts of animal-based pet foods are substantial,
and increasingly of concern to consumers. However, there is no scientific or practical reason
why diets cannot be formulated entirely from plant, mineral and synthetic sources to meet all the nutrient requirements (including adequate protein content and digestibility) for dogs, and indeed, other species. Pet food companies are to be commended for bringing to market such nutritionally sound alternatives, which safeguard the health not only of companion dogs, but also ‘food’ animals and the environment.”

"One of the most healthy things you can do for your dog these days is to get them off animal products as a food. It is my conclusion that the increased amount of chemicals present in animals from the environment, is now the primary cause for chronic diseases."
Dr. Richard H. Pitcairn
Dr. Pitcairn’s career has spanned decades of veterinary clinical practice, teaching, lecturing and research devoted to animal nutrition. Author of “Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats”, where he demonstrates that plant-based diets offer a more humane, eco-friendly and less toxic way to feed companion animals in a field increasingly dominated by advocates of raw meat diets.
"what DoGood have achieved is truly a gamechanger"
"What DoGood have achieved in bringing fresh, wholefood, balanced plant-based food to the petfood market is truly a gamechanger, and they will disrupt the pet food industry for good! They have proved that there is no need to rely on meat-based non-sustainable dog food in plastic packaging when dogs can be fed a much healthier and kinder alternative full of natural wholefoods known to enhance the health of our pets - as it would with our own health.
Their food is ideal too for dogs suffering from any form of food intolerance as they have been careful to exclude every possible allergen from their well thought out delicious recipes."
