What you eat.

What your dog eats. 

Every bite counts.


- Laura Simonson

Founder of Virchew

No sugar-coating.


From disease to climate change to factory farming to record rates of animal extinction, humanity is facing catastrophic problems.


We need solutions and we need them fast. The negative environmental impact from factory farming combined with the tragic treatment of food animals is indefensible. We can no longer just kick back and hope for our governments or 'the powers that be' to solve these issues. We're in this together. 


We have to dig deep and bring forth innovative, compassionate solutions through business, food technology, and social impact. We need to; start, support, invest in or purchase from businesses and organizations that are leading the way to solve these issues. 


The global dog food industry is a significant part of the problem. It's been estimated in the United States alone, up to 70 million tons of carbon are released annually from the production and consumption of pet food.


As important, the same pet food industry is counter to the current rescue and animal welfare movements. Like people, dogs are actually considered to be omnivores, so why are we still feeding them other animals?


To be part of the solution, we must consider plant-based foods for our own plates and our dog's bowl.


Our dog's dinner has never been more important.

Virchew is serving up healthy, sustainable, compassionate solutions through 100% plant-based foods for dogs (not kibble or canned). Our extraordinary (tasty) foods are supported by ground-breaking veterinary partnerships, nutrition programs, clinical research, exciting business to business collaborations, community events and our own Virchew Shop.


We're on an exciting journey to serve ONE Million Virchew Dogs. We believe when we transform our dog's dinner, we'll impact our world's dinner and lifestyle choices. And that's just the beginning.


This winter we're unleashing in Vancouver, BC, through direct delivery to dogs and their humans, with very exciting plans to serve dog lovers everywhere.


Come, join Virchew, and together we'll make every bite count.

“Everyday there is new information about the link between a plant-based diet and disease prevention. Why would it not be the same for our beloved dogs who are prone to many of the same diseases?”

“These diets will have endless benefits for our canine patients, both from a preventative and therapeutic approach and will provide a lucrative business opportunity for veterinarians as well.“
