A Few FAQ’s
1. Why plant-based?
There are many benefits to adopting a plant-based diet, both for you and your pup. For one, you’ll be decreasing your environmental footprint by an enormous factor in water usage, land usage, deforestation, methane emissions and food efficiency, just to name a few. You’ll be eliminating the vast majority of dietary toxins by removing the bio-accumulated pesticides, antibiotics and hormones from the equation. And yes, you’ll be saving hundreds of cute, sensitive animals every year from being used, abused, and ultimately killed in horrific ways.

2. But dogs are omnivores?
Yes! Dogs are omnivores, meaning they can live a healthy life eating plants, animals, or both. If the reasons listed above appeal to you, listen up, because that means that your pup can be healthy and thrive on a carefully planned plant-based diet. (No, this doesn’t mean you should feed your dog tofu and avocado toast every day).

3. Ok, but what’s actually IN the food?
I’m glad you asked! Sprouties is made with a delicious blend of organic beans, lentils, peas, and seeds. Free from gluten, grains, corn, soy, dairy, eggs, fillers, by-products, and mystery “meats” and “meals”, this food features 100% whole-food nutrient powerhouses like pumpkin & flax seeds, vitamin-rich sea veggies kelp & dulse, non-grain energy-packed seeds amaranth & buckwheat, and even Love Bites’ signature Miracle Powder multivitamin blend.

4. Beans? No thanks! I don’t like dog farts.
This is a common question, and understandably so. Even for people, introducing more fiber into the diet can have some… cleansing effects, to say the least. This is actually very healthy, as most Americans are fiber deficient, and fiber is what helps your body to eliminate toxins that can build up in the digestive tract, causing obesity and other health concerns. So, while you shouldn’t go from feeding your dog their usual food one day to feeding them just beans and lentils overnight, there is an easy way to transition your pup and their gut bacteria. Since different bacteria digest different types of proteins, you need to feed the plant-digesters slowly, so their numbers grow and over time the animal-digesters shrink in number to accomodate. For most pups, a 4-week transition time as outlined in the package insert will do just fine, but if your pup has a history of digestive upset, consider making the transition over 6 or even 8 weeks, just to give their tummies plenty of time to adapt. Always monitor your dog when transitioning a food, and always contact a professional if something seems unusual.
