Barking Heads has introduced a new plant based food range for dogs, after the company recognised a demand for more “nutritionally balanced” vegetable based food options.
The product entitled ‘Plant-Powered Pooches’ includes vegetables, fruits, herbs and botanical ingredients, and retails for £6.50.
Dr Scott Miller, TV Vet and Barking Heads resident expert said: “Of course, dogs love meat. But we know veg is an awesome source of power and nutrients for all of us, including our pooches. Dogs are naturally omnivores which means they have always eaten both meat and vegetables to provide the vital nutrition they need.”
“We estimate that one in five of you are already adding fresh or cooked veg to your dog’s food, and some of you are occasionally feeding plant-based meals.
He added: “So, we felt it was important to formulate a more complete way to do this with added vitamins and minerals and the right amount of protein for healthy pooches! For tasty (and occasional) meat-free Mondays, or for added veggie power in your dog’s regular meals, Plant Powered Pooches is it.”
