Vegan pet owners must overcome their personal feelings towards animal products to provide their dogs with a well-balanced and healthy diet. That said, there are many other pet products and dog supplies outside of dog food that do mesh with the vegan lifestyle. Below we’re sharing some of our favorite picks of vegan dog products you should try.
Vegan Dog Treats
Threepaws Gourmet Strawberry Coconut Cream Chia Seed Organic and Vegan Dog Treats
Threepaws Gourmet Strawberry Coconut Cream Chia Seed organic and vegan dog treats look almost good enough for us to eat…almost… Made with chia seeds, peanut butter, and organic coconut cream, these treats aren’t just vegan, they’re healthy too because they’re grain free, gluten free, corn free, and soy free.
If you’re looking to support a small business that gives a portion of their proceeds to charity (Farm Sanctuary) and treat your pup to something rich in flavor, these treats are a good choice. Unlike many other vegan treats, these fruity biscuits have ditched the bland taste and replaced it with the much sweeter yet healthier benefits of coconut, peanuts, and chia seeds.
Shaded Trails All Natural Crunchy Vegan Dog Treats
If you’d rather stick with the more traditional taste profiles for your dog’s treats then Shaded Trails All Natural and Vegan Crunchy Dog Treats are a good starting point. Made with human grade ingredients, these vegan treats are grain free, low fat, soy free, wheat free, filler free, and free from artificial colors and preservatives.
Think all that means that these cookies are lacking flavor? Don’t, because both the peanut butter and banana flavor cookies and the sweet potato and apple flavor cookies are aromatic and apparently, delicious. (We didn’t try them ourselves but the dogs seem to go crazy for them!)
V-dog Pet Treats
V-dog is a vegan-based pet product company who specializes in plant-based formulas. While these treats aren’t exactly tasty, they are a must for keeping doggy breath at bay. Don’t get us wrong, they’re not offensive in the way they smell, but they aren’t exactly your gourmet coconut cream cookies either. That said, they do a pretty good job of getting your dog’s teeth clean without the addition of animal products, wheat, soy, corn, factory farming, dairy, fillers, or by-products.
If you’ve been tempted by the idea of “Greenies” we’d recommend V-dog Breathbones treats instead. They’re a healthier alternative made from all natural ingredients including broccoli, cinnamon, parsley, sweet potatoes, and chia seeds.
Raw Paws Pet Grain-Free Sweet Potato Training Treats for Dogs
We have had the pleasure of trying out a number of Raw Paws products for dogs and not a single one has disappointed so far. Their grain free sweet potato training treats are no exception. Okay, how wrong can you go with small pieces of dried sweet potato? But since we trust the Raw Paws brand, we feel much more comfortable feeding our dogs their sweet potato treats than using another megacorporation alternative.
The Raw Paws sweet potato training treats are grain free, gluten free, and easy to digest and they’re cut to the perfect size for training sessions. Plus, they have a sweetness to them that’s appealing so you don’t have to rely on that “stinky liver treat smell” to convince your dog to obey their commands!

For just under $40 you can get the cleaning bundle which includes all of the above products, but you can also add on other products in their line (skin care products or bath products) for a discount or you can buy products individually. What we like best about this line of products aside from the fact that they’re family safe and cruelty-free is…
