Feeding our dogs plant-based food is a contentious issue for some but one science is thankfully starting to address.

As an increasing number of families choose to feed their dogs non-meat diets for health, environmental and welfare reasons so the amount of research on the impact of plant-based and novel proteins on our dog’s health and wellbeing has increased.

Recent research shows that plant-based dogs have less frequent visits to the vet and live 1.7 years longer on average.

Plant-based ingredients contain powerful phytonutrients with antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties that are well researched for their ability to provide preventative support for skin and coat health, gut and digestive health, joint mobility and muscle health, oral and dental health, heart and eye health as well as brain and cognitive health.

The power of plants to heal is well known. They have been used in traditional medicine for 1000’s of years, the most well researched, and increasingly used to treat health issues in humans, being Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic Medicine.

Bonza includes PhytoPlus™, a proprietary blend of phytonutrients, that provides preventative support for many of the potential health issues your dog may suffer from.

A growing number of veterinarians, canine nutritionists, academics and scientists are now recommending plant-based diets for dogs – read their views here.

‘Food as medicine’, a practice built on the knowledge that food and diet play important roles in disease prevention and management, is becoming increasingly popular as we learn the importance of functional food and the benefits of nutraceutical food for both our own health and our dogs.
