“ Brand: Vegusto / Type: Dog Food „
I have been a vegetarian for 16 years and recently opted for a vegan diet for myself and whilst researching into a dairy free life I began reading about vegan diets for animals. After considering all pointers I decided to try a vegan sausage for my dog and also a similar one for my cat. This is what we thought ....
I used vegan food website Vegusto.co.uk who sell a range of foods for humans and pets which are all vegan and thankfully have a list of all the ingredients they are free from including Palm Oil. I opted for the Swiss Dog Rice Maxi Sausage which sells at £3.49 for a 700g sausage. They also sell a Swiss dog maxi classic sausage for £4.99.
The sausage is made up from Ingredients: water, wheat protein (gluten), vegetable oils (non-hydr.), rice (5.6%), yeast, VegedogTM, tomato paste - (tomatoes, salt), spices, rice starch, rock salt, natural smoke flavour VegedogTM: dicalcium phosphate, calcium carbonate, ascophyllum nodosum (source of arachidonate), taurine, zinc oxide, ferrous sulfate, vitamin E, sodium selenite, vitamin B4 (choline chloride), sodium selenite, vitamin B12, vitamin D2, vitamin A-acetat
It has the following nutritional values; (100 g): crude protein 22.5%. crude oils & fats 0.8%, crude ash 1.33%, crude fibre 0.54%, moisture 56.3%
From the second I took this out of the delivery box my dog showed great interest, sniffing, licking and nudging at it. When I opened it, it had a strong meaty smell which drove my dog wild. It's very simple to use, just simply cut a slice off and cube the same way and to the same quantity you would serve wet dog food, or combine with dry or even use as a training aid.
The sausage was in the bowl a matter of seconds before my dog wolfed it down her neck!
No nasty side affects either; no bad smells, toilet issues etc.
Kepp refridgerated and eat within a week, however as it is vegan it will probably last longer.
Overall my dog loves this food. It's not the cheapest but its a good healthy option.
