I've been doing so much research on dog food just trying to find the best for my 4 year old pup. From best ingredients, brands, how feed grade is made, human grade ingredients vs human grade processed as well.Upon receiving this my dog would barely let me open the shipping box he was sniffing it so hard, then I decided to prepare him a meal right away to try. I could barely prepare it he was barking and scratching at the counter so hard. Upon finishing the prep he gulped down the bowl and now doesn't seem to want to touch anything else. It's a dog food he's ACTUALLY excited for, instead of waiting days to finally touch his normal kibble.It's so great to have a product for my dog that is human grade ingredients and made in a human grade facility. It's disgusting how normal dog food is made...the horror stories of millions of roaches in a big name manufacturing plant, meal made from diseased and put down animals, animals struggling to cling to life admist piles of dead ones waiting to be slaughtered to be made into meal.I'm choosing human grade just to avoid the cruelty to animals and to my own pet for feeding them that.Also in regards to the recent DCM scare. Do you're research and form your own opinion, also look at the actual FDA articles yourself. Those big name grain based brands are still on there. Do what you feel is right and see how your dog is thriving, grain free or not, boutique brand or not.
I was looking for a food that didn't have crap in it - no preservatives, misc. animal meals, or other questionable/unidentifiable ingredients. My older dog was having some issues with his liver, and his digestion was poor. I couldn't find a kibble that fit our needs, and I really can't afford to feed raw or make my own dog food from scratch. Then I read about how kibble is typically processed, and was even more worried about what to feed my dog. I came across great reviews for Honest Kitchen and love that this is human grade dog food. Easy to store and prepare - just add water. Not only does my dog love it, but within a week he was looking and acting like a new dog! I transitioned him from boiled chicken + plain white rice or potato (which he still with digestive issues on) to the Honest Kitchen whole-grain turkey over that week. His digestive issues have ceased! (he's also on Denamarin for large dogs, started at the same time) I am sure the liver support supplement helped, but the diet change is making a huge difference! He loves this food, and his energy level and playfulness have increased as well. I know I won't have him forever, but for as long as he's still with me, this food is worth the money for how happy and healthy and vibrant he's become again. Just like with people - you are what you eat. You eat crap, you'll feel like crap. Eat healthy food, your body will respond in kind. Thank you, Honest Kitchen - the first dog food to have the FDA's stamp of approval for 'human grade' ingredients!
My dog went into heart failure and I was challenged with finding a quality low sodium food. After trying some of the low sodium kibble available, I just was not happy with the ingredients they contained. Someone recommended honest kitchen and I am so glad they did. Now I did not think my dog would like this very much, considering it is basically green in color and does not smell like meat. But lo and behold I started incorporating this slowly and now my dog is eating honest kitchen Verve 100% And she gobbles it down. Yes it cost more than the cheap garbage dog food you will find in the store but this stuff is worth every penny. I see Improvement in my dog's energy levels. One thing of note, my dog now goes to the bathroom about 4 times a day. So that was something to get used to but this is perfectly normal once your dog is eating honest kitchen.
We have too much training, time, and expense invested in my wife's medical service dog to trust her diet to poor quality dog food. She has been fed an organic home cooked diet all of her life until we moved to the country to build our off-grid cabin. Not having a full sized freezer to store home cooked meals during construction, we searched for a quality dog food and came upon The Honest Kitchen Human Grade dog food and decided to give it a try.Our dog absolutely loves it. It is easy to prepare, made from wholesome ingredients, and best of all, can be stored without refrigeration. Our dog has been eating it for almost two years and has been healthy with a shiny coat, and energetic. It is a quality product.
When my now 9 month old Golden was teething, I had to moisten her dry kibble to make it easier to eat. We have continued to moisten her breakfast just as a treat during the cold, wet winter. I started adding a bit of canned food for awhile but soon her stools became soft and she developed a rash on her tummy so we quit that and went back to plain warm water.Then I found a sample size of dehydrated dog food in a pet store. I mixed part of it up into her kibble and added warm water. My pup was in heaven. She has been eating a small amount daily mixed in with her morning kibble with very warm water. Her stools have firmed back up and her rash is gone.To avoid giving her too many calories on days when she isn't going to doggy day camp, I simply give her 1/8th of the amount required for her weight and energy level and I reduce her kibble amount by 1/8th. She gets her full amount of kibble on day camp days since she burns the extra calories from the dehydrated food up with all her rambunctious playing.One 4lb box is lasting me awhile since she only gets small amounts daily but I will definitely purchase this product again when we run low.
My German Shepherd has been on this food for several months now and honestly I wished I had switched to it a lot sooner than I did. (My Lab is on the fish formula and I wrote a review on that one separately as I did not rate it as high- 3 stars) In my quest to stop my girl from itching I tried several high quality brands. Zignature, Victor, Fromm's and Farmina. Salmon, Kangaroo, Duck, Codfish I tried several formulas. Unfortunately she would maybe itch less on some formulas than others and some she would just refuse to eat or leave a bowl half full. I've discarded half full bags, it was frustrating and a waste of money. After reading about how over cooked and nutrient deficient kibble is no matter how expensive and considering going to home cooked or raw feeding I decided to try Honest Kitchen. The beef with grains formula is what I chose and after a week or so on the diet her itching was gone! She also scarfs this food down which is a new problem I am working on. With kibble she at slowly and stopped several times. I realize now that she was unhappy but hungry. For my 55lb girl I use 3/4 cup both morning and night and mix in 1 to 1 1/4 cup of warm water. The food absorbs the water completely, I would liken the texture to a paste. A 10lb box last just at a month and its cost is right at what I was paying before for kibble. With its high quality human grade ingredients it's a winner for me and I am glad I found it.
My two dogs love it! For a long time, I made my dogs' food, but it got to be too time consuming for my schedule and life. I wanted a comparable, healthy, and affordable alternative for my dogs, as commercial dog food is generally junk. This is a great option for us, and it only takes a minute to prepare for them. Just add water, get a whisk and stir it up, and serve. When I get out the tub of food, my dogs come running. If I get sidetracked in the kitchen, my girl will let me know that I am taking too long with her food and she barks at me to hurry up! They lick their bowls completely clean, so much so that I have to take them away after they finish because they will keep going! I love that I can get it through Subscribe and Save, it makes it more affordable.My 2 dogs are both around 40 lbs, and we go through 2 of these 10 lb. boxes per month. About every 3 months, I order 3 boxes for overage, to make sure I don't run out. I also throw in some vegetables periodically, or a tsp of coconut oil. Digestively, Honest Kitchen is great for them, and they are very regular. :) They like both the chicken and turkey, and switching back and forth is no problem for them. I definitely recommend this brand if you are looking for a high-quality, easy to prepare dog food!
Where do I even begin with this Dog Food. My only complaint is that I did not find and use it sooner.I was feeding my dog Blue as I thought I was doing the best I could for my dog. While she did OK at first she started spitting it out all over the floor. She also would not eat until her stomach would growl, so I know she didn't enjoy her food. I tried other flavors but it was all the same.Then one day I purchased a bag that was missing all Life Source bits , the stuff they claim holds all the extra vitamins and power. The company told me the bits are no different than the rest of the food. Meaning they don't do anything extra as their commercials boast, I was safe to just feed her the bag with out them.I was done with processed dog food.I did a lot of research, even looked at the "freash" Bologna looking food in the refrigerated section and was not at all pleased.When I found this company everything was different. Their website is packed full of every bit of information you could ask for.I did some research about their claims and found no issues. Also, the fact that they had their food certified safe for human consumption mattered. They do not even allow any products on the property that are not safe for humans to eat.I purchased a trial box to check it out. It is just like making Oatmeal and it actually smelled like food. Not dog food. I could also see all of the things they claim to put into their food right there in the bowl.Is it pretty to look at? NO, it's food. It's real food. We are so used to everything being appealing to the eye. You don't need artificial colors or shapes for your dog food. You need good nutrition.So of course I decided to make the move. In fact I didn't even switch over gradually I just gave it to her and removed the kibble for good. She didn't have a single problem and finally...she ate when I gave it to her. No more waiting until late at night or listening to her tummy growl.One of my orders...the bag at the very bottom got a hole in it. You could tell it was done by the seal which probably got caught on something. Still, they wanted my food to be fresh as they made it and had a new box sent out immediately.They even wanted the lot number from the box to keep in case they see anymore issues besides just my own. It's so comforting to know that the food I'm feeding my much loved pup is being made by a company who takes their job serious and stand behind their promises.I worked it out financially and I'm actually spending less than I was before.It's also really, really nice not having to deal with big bags of dog food. The boxes are made to look so nice that I just keep it out on my the counter.This is a move I know I was right to make.
If you really want to know about your pets health take a minute to read WHY this dog food is 20 stars BETTER than any 5 star kibble dog food. I graduated with a degree in Food Science so my information is credible. All foods (human or dog) consist of thousands of chemicals with particular bonding. These chemicals consist of vitamins, minerals, proteins, flavonoids, polyphenols ect. all providing benefits to the health of humans and dogs. Heat treating foods can destroy or alter these chemical compounds in a way that your body doesn't get the health benefit. If interested I will explain one quick example, if not interested in my example skip next paragraph.Example:Its well known that steaming your vegetables is better than boiling in straight water. Why? Cause, vegetables especially, contain many beneficial flavonoids and when boiled in straight water these flavanoids are destroyed because high heat destroys them. Steaming vegetables over the boiling water preserves these flavonoids because the food is being cooked with water vapor. Same principle applies to protein in vegetables. Protein is a multi-folding molecule and in biochemistry they are categorized as primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary structures. Generally, proteins start off in a quaternary structure and as the molecule undergoes heat process the molecule starts to unfold to its tertiary, secondary and primary structures. In terms of health, this effect is undesirable because protein in its quaternary structure is most useful for the body. When people say eat more RAW foods, you can think of eating foods that have not undergone any heat process (such as salads, fruits, nuts ect.) and therefore these foods have a lot of those flavonoids still available for your body to utilize.Now back to the The Honest Kitchen product, this food is heat processed BUT it is only heat processed at something like 160 degrees (hence why they call it dehydrated food). This is awesome because you're preserving these precious proteins and flavonoids I talked about for your dogs body to utilize. Now most dry kibble is heat processed at temperatures around 500 degrees. At such high temperatures you are going to destroy a lot of these beneficial chemicals that your dogs needs. Now ready listen to this. Not only is this brand healthier for your dog BUT they will like the taste better too. I give my Australian Shepard half honest kitchen food and half kibble in his bowl (for financial reasons) and EVERY TIME he always eats the honest kitchen food first and eats the kibble last. My guess is, he likes the the honest kitchen food better because it is healthier for him (but obviously he does't know that).If anyone reading this has any questions or comments please let me know because I am always eager for discussion. Hope your fury friend enjoys his new food if you decide to buy this product!-Joe
I have dogs that have very sensitive stomachs and the one was on a RX diet via the vet for a long time and I am not only not a big fan of the RX brands they are crazy priced for what you get. Now don't get me wrong they do work well but they are just not something I feel I want to keep my dog on long term. I also have a puppy mill rescue that has only two teeth thanks to horrid conditions and lack of care most of her life so she cannot eat kibble. She is the dog I bought this for in the beginning but all of my dogs snub kibble once they smell this. They all want it so I am not putting all four of my small dogs on it because the two that were on it have much better coats. I fed the Natures Variety kibble so I was not by any means being cheap before so it is not all that much more to swallow. The upset tummy baby has been on this for about 3 weeks and before I put him on it he had lost a lot of weight and his skin was dry from the RX stomach food. He was actually scary thin as he is a hairless crested and you can see everything. So in the three weeks he has begun to gain weight and his skin is like silk to me. I absolutely love touching it. He had one tummy event so far but I had been a sucker and gave him some Greenies so that was my bad. I went to the vet talked it all over and she said she liked this and that we should continue on it but we did decide to go to a more limited ingredient one like chicken quinoa so I will be reviewing that next. The vet liked that it has unusual ingredients so it may be better for his stomach. My puppy mill dog has not grown more coat and it is much softer and they bothe have more energy. I hope that all stays this way as I like it when everyone can eat the same thing and not have to swap around.
