Pet parents may choose to feed their dog a vegan dog food because it is a holistic alternative diet for protein-sensitive dogs. (And Halo Garden of Vegan® doesn't use any rice so it's a completely plant-based protein from whole grains, green peas, and chickpeas.) It is also an option for vegan pet parents who would like to include their dogs in their meatless lifestyle, or anyone who wants to reduce their carbon paw print, since avoiding meat even one day a week can make a positive impact on the environment.
