There's plenty of evidence that humans can thrive on plant-based diets — but can our dogs? The matter is often contested, with conflicting information leaving vegan, vegetarian, and eco-conscious dog parents confused as to what the best diet is for their companion animals. To learn more about both the health effects and the environmental impacts of feeding dogs plant-based diets, Green Matters spoke with Lindsay Rubin, vice president of V-Dog, an all-vegan dog food company. 

V-Dog was founded in 2005, and the San Francisco-based company makes allergy-friendly and vegan dog food that is free of corn, soy, wheat, gluten, and other fillers. V-Dog's food is powered by high-protein whole foods like peas, oats, lentils, brown rice, flaxseeds, quinoa, and millet.
