How Is PawCo Different From Other Dog Food Brands?

When it comes to choosing the right dog food for your furry friend, there are countless options to consider. With so many brands promising to provide complete and balanced nutrition, knowing which one to choose can be challenging. However, if you’re looking for a brand that stands out from the crowd, look no further than PawCo. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what makes PawCo different from other dog food brands and why it may be the perfect choice for your dog.

Fresh Vegan Food

PawCo offers fresh vegan dog food based on whole-food ingredients and developed by a dedicated team of board-certified food scientists and animal nutritionists. Unlike traditional animal-based diets, fresh vegan food is easier for dogs to digest and is packed with nutrients that promote their overall health and well-being. This type of diet is especially beneficial for dogs with food sensitivities, allergies, or digestive issues. It can also help prevent numerous other health issues, including cancer.

A study by Dr. Andrew Knight suggests that a vegan diet may be the healthiest option for dogs. The study observed 2,536 dogs for a year, examining seven key health indicators. Results showed that dogs on a vegan diet required less non-routine medication and fewer vet visits compared to those on conventional or raw meat diets. Dr. Knight concluded, “The healthiest and least hazardous dietary choices for dogs are nutritionally sound vegan diets.” 

Moreover, PawCo’s fresh vegan meals are different from kibble, which is often heavily processed, has a low moisture content, and may contain fillers and additives. Read more about the issues with kibble here.


PawCo’s meals are made with GreenMeat™, the world’s first plant-based meat specifically formulated for dogs. GreenMeat™ is made with high-quality plant and yeast proteins and is nutritionally complete, providing dogs with all the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals they need. Unlike other brands that may use lower-quality plant- or animal-based proteins, PawCo’s GreenMeat™ is carefully crafted to meet the nutritional requirements of dogs.

Exceeds AAFCO Standards

PawCo’s meals exceed the guidelines set by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) to ensure that pet food manufacturers provide complete and balanced dog nutrition. This means that PawCo’s meals are formulated and tested to give dogs all the nutrients they need to stay healthy and happy. By exceeding AAFCO standards, PawCo ensures that its meals meet the highest nutrition and quality standards.

Taste Test Results

PawCo conducted a taste test with 20 dogs who were normally fed animal-based diets. The dogs consumed 99% of the food on day one and 100% of the food on day two, suggesting that they enjoyed the taste and experience of PawCo’s meals. The absence of gastrointestinal upset during the taste test is also significant, as dogs are known to avoid foods that cause discomfort. This means that PawCo’s meals are not only nutritious but also palatable and enjoyable for dogs.

Customizable Meal Plans

PawCo’s subscription plans are customized to a dog’s size, age, and breed. Additionally, PawCo has several different flavors with different health benefits, such as vitamin-rich Green Mix & Carrots, anti-inflammatory Pumpkin & Cranberries, antioxidant-rich Blueberries & Veggies, and high-protein Peanut Butter & Apple. This allows dog owners to choose a meal that fits their dog’s specific health needs and preferences. Learn more about our different available recipes here!

Sustainable Shipping and Easy Storage

PawCo’s meals are shipped frozen to maintain maximum freshness. Upon arrival, they can be stored in the freezer for up to 9 months and in the fridge for up to 5 days once thawed. PawCo always uses meal cups made from recycled materials and recyclable shipping materials to reduce their environmental impact.
