Solo Vegetal is a unique and delicious completely vegetable based food for dogs, containing all the essential nutrients for a healthy diet. It is moist and highly palatable and ideal for dogs with skin or gut problems related to either food sensitivity or food intolerance.
Solo Vegetal is a unique, complete vegetable based food that can be given in conjunction with meat based diets or given on its own as part of a vegetarian / vegan diet. It is also very useful when meat needs to be avoided, for example if your vets suspects your dog has a food sensitivity or intolerance.
It contains a unique blend of ingredients, including: Spinach, Apple, Tomato, Carrot, Chicory, Alfalfa, Hulled oats, Einkorn wheat, Buckwheat, Spelt, Wheat germ, Evening Primrose and Borage oil. All these combine to offer your dog a complete food with all the necessary protein, vitamins, minerals and nutrients they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Absolutely! While it is true that dogs belong to the order Carnivora, they are actually omnivores; this means they can get all the energy, nutrition and protein they need from a plant based diet.
Some dogs may be sensitive to an ingredient in their food and skin problems can be a common symptom of this. Studies show meat, dairy, egg and soya can cause food sensitivities and these are common ingredients in some diets, but are completely absent from Solo Vegetal.
Some dogs are unable to break down certain components in food, typically protein sources from meat. This can lead to poor gut health resulting in symptoms such as diarrhoea and flatulence.
Absolutely! Solo Vegetal can be fed either on its own, or in conjunction with other meat based foods to increase vegetable and fibre in the diet. As well as making up a complete diet, Solo Vegetal’s ingredients also have a number of health benefits for the body, in particular the skin and gut:
If your vet suspects a food sensitivity or intolerance, it is important to try and find out what ingredient or ingredients are causing the problem so they can be removed from the diet. Your vet may advise that your dog is put on an elimination food trial as this is the only way to identify what is causing the problem.
An elimination food trial means your dog is to be fed a new diet which does not include ANY food they have previously come into contact with. This way, your vet will be able to determine if your dog has a food sensitivity or a food intolerance and find out what ingredient(s) your dog should avoid in future.
Solo Vegetal has been specially formulated to fulfil your dog’s nutritional requirements, with the right balance of proteins, vitamins, minerals, whole grains, fatty acids/oils, carbohydrates and fat. It is also really tasty, so we are confident your dog will love it!
