Halo Adult Dog - Holistic Ocean of Vegan Recipe
Halo vegan dog food
Halo Holistic Ocean of Vegan® dog food uses plant and marine-sourced protein, with no animal protein or fat, and no dairy. Halo is the first to market with this unique new recipe crafted with grains, protein-rich legumes, plus plant oil and sea veggies like sea kelp and micro-algae. Added DHA Omega-3, L-carnitine, and taurine ensure your adult dog has all the vitamins and minerals it needs for a healthy life. If you are looking for a vegan dog food or vegetarian dog food, Halo is a great choice for all breeds. Halo's balanced vegan dog food recipe is nutritionally balanced with the finest quality ingredients for a happy pet—inside and out.
At Halo, our mission—"to change the way companion animals are fed and farm animals are raised...for the better"—drives everything we do. With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's recent update about a potential connection between diet and instances of a type of heart disease called canine dilated cardiomyopathy or DCM, we want to remind you that the quality of the ingredients and formulations of your pet's food is our highest priority. That's why Halo insists on using only non-GMO vegetables and plant-based ingredients (and NO rice filler) in our Ocean of Vegan® kibble diet.
While experts don't know what actually causes DCM, according to the FDA, "taurine deficiency is well-documented as potentially leading to DCM." Taurine is an important amino acid found naturally in meat, poultry, and fish. In some of the DCM cases, the dogs have had low levels of taurine.
We want to assure you that at Halo we include supplemental levels of taurine in our Ocean of Vegan dog food since there is no animal protein in it. This is also true for every other formula of Halo dog food, whether it is a meats, poultry, or fish-based diet, or a plant-based diet. You can feed your dog complete and balanced Ocean of Vegan foods daily, with love and confidence.
FAQs about Vegan Dog Food
FAQs about Vegan Dog Food
Dogs are omnivores, meaning they can get their nutrients from either plant or animal sources. Halo Ocean of Vegan® provides dogs with an alternative to a meat based diet that delivers equivalent essential nutrients and is complete and balanced for dogs.
Many users of Halo Ocean of Vegan feed their dogs this recipe either because they wish to extend their own vegan lifestyle to that of their companion animal, or because their dogs are experiencing allergic reactions to common meat based dog food recipes.
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 Ocean of Vegan® doesn't use any rice so it's a completely plant-based and marine-sourced protein from chickpeas, sea kelp, and micro-algae). 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.
Yes. Dogs are omnivores (not obligate carnivores, like cats). The nutritional value of a dog diet is measured by its essential amino acids—the building blocks of protein—not by the protein type. Halo's Ocean of Vegan® delivers all these essential nutrients through meat-free protein, and is a complete and balanced recipe.
In addition to Halo Ocean of Vegan® dry dog food, we also offer Halo Garden of Vegan® which is available as a wet canned dog food and as a dry kibble dog food. Additionally, Halo offers Vegan Peanut n' Pumpkin Treats and Vegan Sweet Potato, Carrot, and Quinoa Cookie Treats.
