Why PawCo?

Why PawCo?

We are a team of board certified animal nutritionists and food scientists.
PawCo cares about the health of your dog, the welfare of other animals, and the environment. We offer complete and balanced dog meals. PawCo’s 100% plant-based meals are sure to provide your dog with all the necessary vitamins, minerals and amino acids, while reducing the negative effects of meat consumption on the health of your pup, the environment, and animal welfare.

What makes PawCo Foods different from other vegan dog food brands?

PawCo Foods stands out in the vegan dog food market with our unique GreenMeat™, the plant-based meat formulated for dogs, created by expert nutritionists. We exceed AAFCO standards, offer delicious meals loved in taste tests, provide customizable subscription plans, and use sustainable packaging. For detailed insights on how PawCo compares with other top dog food brands, check out our article on the subject. Discover the PawCo difference and give your furry friend the best in plant-based nutrition!

Why fresh food?

Fresh food offers multiple benefits over traditional dry kibble. At PawCo, we believe that our pups should eat as well as we do, and that fresher and less processed food is better for everyone, including four-legged family members. Our ingredients are fresh, nutritious, and tasty, and unlike dry kibble, our meals provide enough moisture to support healthy digestion.

And rest assured, that even though our shelf-stable InstaBites™ recipe is not fresh in the same sense as GreenBites and LuxBites™, it is still as healthy, cooked gently at very low temperatures, and will be served “fresh” by adding water and activating it.

Why plant-based pet food?

It’s a common misconception that dogs are carnivores. They are, in fact, omnivores, and recent studies have shown that our furry friends can live happy, healthy lives, and may actually thrive on a vegan diet, as long as they get all the nutrients they require. Benefits of a vegan diet for dogs include reduced allergy symptoms, shinier coats and healthier skin, reduced cancer risk, reduced animal farming, and a reduced environmental impact.

About our food

Where can I buy PawCo Foods?

Our meals can only be purchased in our online shop and is currently available in the United States.

Does your food suit all dogs?

While all dogs are different, our meals are formulated to suit most adult dogs.
Pawco meals are free of animal products and therefore they are recommended for those who have allergies for animal products.
Our current recipes are not recommended for puppies. This is a work in progress and we will have Pawco meals specifically formulated for puppies in the near future.

We recommend consulting your veterinarian about any diet change, as they are familiar with your pet’s medical history and dietary needs.

How do I transition my dog to PawCo foods?

Transition to the new food over the course of a week or ten days, gradually decreasing your pets current food and increasing the Pawco food.

Following the instructions we’ll send with your transition package, mix PawCo adult dog food in gradually larger proportions with your dog’s current diet for the first seven to ten days, until you’re feeding 100% of PawCo’s food. Be sure to always have a bowl of fresh water available.

Does your food meet AAFCO standards?

Our recipes are complete and balanced plant based meals, and formulated by a team of board certified animal nutritionists to exceed AAFCO’s standard, for adult life maintenance.

Who creates your recipes and ensures they’re complete and balanced?

All PawCo recipes are carefully formulated by our team of food scientists and animal nutritionists to ensure your furry friend gets all the nutrients they require. Our 100% vegan meals are complete and balanced and contain all the necessary vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

How should I store and serve PawCo Foods?

When our delicious PawCo meals arrive at your doorstep, we recommend stashing the GreenBites and LuxBites™ in the freezer. They’ll stay perfectly fresh for up to 9 months, ensuring you always have a healthy meal on hand for your furry friend. When it’s time to serve the food, simply move what you need from the freezer to the fridge to thaw overnight. Rest assured, they keep in the fridge for 4-5 days once defrosted. And remember, there’s no need to heat these meals – they’re best served at room temperature.

InstaBites™, on the other hand, is our fresh and shelf-stable innovation! No need for freezer space here; just store these convenient pouches in your pantry. When your pup is ready to eat, just mix InstaBites™ with some warm water and in only a few minutes, you have a nutritious, fresh meal ready to go.

About the subscription

How does the subscription work?

When you go to purchase your first PawCo package, you will be asked to answer a few questions about your dog, such as their age, breed, and weight. We use this information to calculate the appropriate amount of food for your dog, and you can choose a subscription plan based on your answers. 

The first package you receive will be your starter box, containing the right quantity of food for your dog, a welcome letter, and instructions for transitioning your pup to our product over 7-10 days. You and your four-legged family member will then continue to receive deliveries of yummy, balanced, and complete vegan dog meals from PawCo regularly, based on your selected plan.

Can I change my subscription?

Yes, you can login to your account and make any changes to your subscription. In the customer portal, you can manage your address and payment method, change recipes, adjust the frequency of your orders, and skip or reschedule deliveries. You can also always email us at [email protected], where we’ll be happy to assist you!

Can I cancel or pause my subscription?

Yes, you can login to your account and cancel or pause your subscription at any time!

Can I change recipes after subscribing?

What is your return policy?

We hope all our customers love PawCo meals, and this won’t happen. 

Unfortunately, we can not accept returns. But we do offer a 100% money-back guarantee for the starter package, so that you can try our food risk-free!

How does shipping work?

Most of our meals are shipped frozen to keep them safe and help keep nutritional values unchanged. 

They are shipped bi-weekly/monthly in a shipping box with a thermal panel and dry ice to keep them frozen. After receiving the PawCo box, get excited, and then put the frozen meal in the freezer. Please defrost the meal packs in the fridge overnight prior to feeding your pet. 

Our InstaBites™ recipe ships separately, as it is shelf-stable. These convenient pouches can be kept in your pantry!

Is your packaging environmentally friendly?

Not only are all our shipping boxes and thermal panels recyclable, but our meal packages are also eco-friendly and made using recycled paper material.
