"You never change things by fighting against the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete."


- R. Buckminster Fuller

About Me

I'm Laura Simonson and through my business, Virchew, I'm doggedly following a long-time vision to create a compelling business that also champions a cause. Based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, Virchew has set out to transform the dog food industry. We're serving up the first plant-based meals and treats for dogs powered by trail-blazing veterinary nutrition programs - with a dogged focus on skin, digestive and preventative solutions. And, we deliver or ship right to your dog's door.


As of this writing, we're in the process of building a new website for our company's growth. But in the meantime, learn more about our extraordinary venture in Vancouver (or order your dog's dinner!) at

  • LinkedIn - Black Circle
  • Twitter - Black Circle
  • Facebook - Black Circle

I'm also the founder of VEGAN Vancouver, a community that celebrates plant-powered (vegan) business, people, and lifestyles. Most recently, I also co-founded Let it BE, an inspirational weekly Zoom circle of women determined to thrive during our new normal in 2020 - 2021. 

Through business, collaborations, speaking and community events, I'm on a mission with a community of awesome people to provide inspired living for everyone and their dog!


Let's connect and thanks for dropping by.


Peace, love, dogs,
