  • I thought dogs were carnivores? How can they thrive on a plant based diet with no meat?

    One of the biggest misconceptions when it comes to dogs is the fact that people think they are carnivores because they are related to wolves. The truth is dogs are actually omnivores and have adapted for thousands of years alongside humans in order to be able to digest plants much better than wolves. In fact, there are many benefits of this diet compared to a meat based diet. Science shows that dogs who eat a plant based diet will often stay healthier, leaner and more energetic and on top of that it could help improve their skin/coat, oral hygiene, and much more.

  • How will my dog get enough protein from a plant based diet?

    When consuming Dylan's Pet Food recipes weather it be adult recipes or puppy recipes we can assure you that your pup will get enough protein in their diet. We have worked with veterinarian nutritionists to make sure that our recipes not only have enough protein, but they also have all the vital nutrients that a dog needs to grow and maintain a healthy lifestyle. As long as you follow our custom feeding recommendations you will have nothing to worry about.

  • Why choose a plant based diet?

    Besides being very healthy, there are many reasons why a plant based diet is a better option for your dog and the planet as well. A 2012 study in the journal Ecosystems by Mesfin M. Mekonnen and Arjen Y. Hoekstra, both at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, tells an important story. The study shows changing one’s diet to replace 50 percent of animal products with edible plants like legumes, nuts and tubers results in a 30 percent reduction in an individual’s food-related water footprint. Going vegetarian, a better option in many respects, reduces that water footprint by almost 60 percent. Meat production and consumption not only increases our water footprint but it also increases pollution of streams, rivers, and the coastal oceans, increases green house gas emissions, aids in the decline of marine resources, increases the need for fertilizers for crops used to feed livestock animals and much more. By consuming a plant based diet instead of animal products, you will not only be aiding in the health of your dog, but the health of your planet as well.

  • What is quinoa?

    Quinoa is a crop grown for its edible seeds and is one of the world's most popular health foods. Quinoa is high in protein, gluten-free and contains all nine essential amino acids.​​ On top of that, it also contains B vitamins, vitamin E, phosphorus, iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fiber and beneficial antioxidants.

  • Is quinoa a grain?

    Craig Morris, the director of the USDA ARS Western Wheat Quality Laboratory and former editor-in-chief of Cereal Chemistry states that although we often mix the quinoa into the grain category, it is technically not a grain. ​According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary quinoa is a seed that is harvested from a tall, leafy plant that is not a cereal grass ― that’s a relative of spinach, beats, and chard. So quinoa is technically classified as a pseudo-cereal grain, along with amaranth and buckwheat. Pseudo-cereal grains are seeds from a number of different plant species external to the poaceae family that are eaten in a similar fashion to cereal grains. So these pseudo-cereal grains are not true grains, but because they’re cooked and eaten in a similar way as other grains they all seem to get lumped into the same grain category.

  • Should I put my meals in the fridge or freezer when I receive them in the mail?

    Upon arrival, we reccomend storing all the meals in the freezer. Gradually move meals from the freezer to the fridge 24 hours before feeding to allow time to thaw. Once a meal is defrosted, keep refrigerated in a glass or plastic sealed container and use within 5 days.
