Why Virchew?

Solutions. Support. Smiles.

Plant-based foods boast incredible health and therapeautic benefits that are good for our dogs, good for our earth, and good for our hearts. If plants hold the solutions to support all of this, why are we not feeding our dogs these powerful foods?

We feel it's just the right thing to do. That puts a smile on our face.

Did you know research reveals the most common foods that cause skin issues include animal-based proteins? 

Zak here, tried several foods but now he's got happy skin!




There are as many mysterious digestive issues as there are types of dogs. Just as in humans, the causes are unlimited and most often, puzzling.

Rowdy here, is now a good pooper!
