Dr Arielle Griffiths

Vegan Vet and Nutritionist

As a GP vet for 25+ years, I grew increasingly concerned about the obesity epidemic in our pets and wanting to do something practical about it to help owners, I threw myself into the fascinating world of pet nutrition. My findings were that the more plants you add to a dog’s diet, the healthier they will be. As a mother very concerned about the environmental impact of our own food choices on our children’s future, I turned vegan 4 years ago not even having been vegetarian before; and I turned our family dog vegan too. We have both never been healthier and I am now a passionate advocate of plant-based feeding in our pets.


Similarities between health conditions in our dogs and us when choosing a plant-based diet for our pets

Did you know that we share a very similar gut microbiome to our dogs which forms the basis of health for both us and our dogs when choosing a plant-based diet. The similarities do not end there and vet Dr Arielle Griffiths who feeds her own dog a 100% nutritionally complete plant-based diet will be discussing the similarities that you may not have even considered.
