The Honest Kitchen Verve Dehydrated Dog Food
homemade meal without the fuss
I bought this product after seeing The Honest Kitchen on CBS Sunday Morning. They seem like they put great care into making their product. I like that it feels as if I am making my dogs something special but it requires little effort. Because I have 2 large dogs and the food is a bit expensive, I only use this as a mix-in with their dry dog food once a day. I know they like it because they get very excited when I'm getting it ready! I debated using canned food instead because it is less expensive, but I decided this product is worth the cost. It isn't as messy, takes up less space in the pantry, and probably has less impact on the environment (no cans to have to recycle). I decided on the VERVE type over the others because it wasn't the highest in protein (my dogs don't seem to do well with foods too high in protein) and had lower fat content.

I have a 10 year old Pug who lives to eat. When she suddenly didn't want any of her food, I was obviously concerned. After numerous vet visits and even a visit to a specialist at a local vet school, we came to find out that she was receiving too much protein and fat in her current diet. It was causing her urine to crystalize and caused her horrible pain. Within 1 week of her eating this food, I noticed a huge difference. My girl was back. She has been on it for almost 6 monts now and her energy is back. She's like a puppy again. It has also cleared up her allergies to where I no longer have to give her medication for the scratching. I would highly recommend trying this food for your best friend.

6 dogs- 6 paws up
with 6 dogs from ages 3 to 12 we have nutritional needs for a few different stages and types since we also have 2 special needs. I do not use THK as the main bulk of their food but it does supliment at dinner w/kibble and the stew I usually make once a month in my pressure cooker is for breakfast(one dog needs no extra sodium due to seizures but then needs it for his Addisons so we are on a fine line whith what he can and can not have)I will mix up a cup full at dinner time and split it up between everyone and they are all doing great we are trying out other combos and THK teas as and additive for our seniors. Love them, so far so good.

All three of my dogs love the Honest Kitchen products, and it is much healthier for them too.
I can't say enough good things about Honest Kitchen dog food. It's very easy to rehydrate. My dogs have always loved to eat, but the Honest Kitchen dog food is by far their favorite. They go crazy when I start mixing it up! I do mix in some (high quality) dry dog food in with the rehydrated Honest Kitchen to provide some crunch, and that combination has worked out really well. I have tried the Verve, Keen, and Force mixes, and all have worked out great. I first bought the Force mix, to help nurse one of our dogs back to health after a near-death experience, and we've been sold on Honest Kitchen products ever since. One box goes a long way too, especially stretched out with some dry dog food. Worth every penny. Mr. Chewy provides great service, fast delivery too!

Easy to feed
My girls love having THK mixed into their kibble. I can't afford to give it as a full feed due to having multiple large dogs, but it works great as a nutritious topper!

I have an 8 year old female German Shepherd who has severely itchy skin and is a very picky eater. Although she hasn't been on THK very long, she loves to eat it! We also have a 2 year old male Black Lab who can't get enough of it. If you have a picky eater, get this and just make a small amount to put over kibble...it'll be gone before you know it.

Very good product
My beagle has allergies and did have terrible skin issues so when I began an earnest effort to help her, I decided on thing that had to be a factor was diet. I had to go way outside of the box and use a raw diet.
Not being a cook for myself and needing the best value, I went with the Honest Kitchen products. They have yet to have major recall, only one to my knowledge and even then no animal reported being ill. And they have interesting varieties of food that are more than just different named products.
It has taken months, but my dog is much improved. I use Keen, Verve and when I can swing the cost, Thrive. She seems to really like the food and licks the bowls clean each time.
My girl seems happy, so we are going to stick with what is working.

Wonderful dog food!
Honest Kitchen is a great product. One of the best dog food products out there. I have tried Embark, Keen, and now Verve. My boxer likes all three. I feel so much better feeding a food without hormones or by products. Just good food.
