The Power of Ayurvedic Healing - Documentary

  • Can dogs lead a vegan lifestyle?
    It is true that dogs belong to the order Carnivora, but they are actually omnivores. The canine body has the ability to transform certain amino acids, the building blocks or protein, into others, meaning that dogs can get all the amino acids they need while avoiding meat. A study based on genomics, published in the nature magazine proves that dogs have evolved to digest carbohydrates and starch. Based on our experience, we find that dogs are healthier and more energetic on vegan diets and also experience less bad breath and body odor. Bramble a vegan border collie lived a healthy life upto the age of 27!
  • Are all your products vegan?
    Yes, all of our food, treats, bath and body products are vegan, sourced in nature and eco friendly!
  • Does the food or treats have Curry or Peppers in it?
    There is no Curry or Pepper in the food. Curry and Pepper are the names of our fur kids!
  • Have trouble identifying your dogs dosha?
    Dogs can be of mixed dosha. Take our quiz to identify the predominant dosha. The dosha with the highest score is the predominant or primary dosha.
  • Do the Dosha’s change with time?
    Yes, the dosha can change over time and/or with season. We recommend that you take the quiz every 3-4 months to identify the primary dosha. Generally we recommend selecting products based on the primary dosha or rotating the food and treats based on the seasons. If you need help selecting the right product combinations for your pet, email us
  • How do I incorporate Ayurveda in my dogs daily routine?
    Incorporating Dosha based Curry n Pepper food, treats, bath & body products in your dogs daily routine makes it easy to create an Ayurveda based regime. Subscribe to our Blog to learn how to easily incorporate Ayurveda in your dogs daily regime.
  • Can dogs with allergies or other GI issues eat Curry n Pepper food or treats?
    Yes. Our food is inspired by our dogs who suffered from gastroenteritis and Brownie severe seasonal allergies. Our food is free of the common allergens like Wheat, Corn, Soy, Gluten, gums/binders, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.
