Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyDogLady Great food but very pricey
I love Honest Kitchen's foods, my dogs all look phenomenal when I feed it to them. Their ingredients are truly quality, no fillers, and because they produce their food in human-grade facilities they are much safer than other dog foods and less likely to have recalls.
I do think however that these foods are very expensive for what you get volume-wise. A 10-pound box of Honest Kitchen will feed one of my 35-pound dogs for about 8 days, so more or less I'd be looking at 4 boxes a month for one dog. I have multiple dogs and it's not financially possible for me to feed this food exclusively.
I do like to use Honest Kitchen as a "topper" for the other food that I do feed. I put about a tablespoon of HK on top of the kibble, add water, and it makes a tasty gravy. I also like to feed HK to dogs who are off their feed for any reason, as they really like the way it tastes and often if I reconstitute the HK with warm chicken broth I can get a dog to eat who wasn't interested in anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCalTerriers Happy Diabetic Doggy, and his Westie Sister too!
My 8 year old terriers both love this food. They have been on a salmon based kibble diet most of their lives, so this was not a huge adjustment for them. I don't like the smell, but can tolerate it as it is the only low fat seafood based food I have found. My Schnauzer was diagnosed with diabetes last month and requires a low fat diet. My Westie has been on seafood only for 7+ years to keep her skin allergy under control. We have here the perfect balance. Expensive? Yes! Worth it to keep my diabetic dog healthy? Absolutely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogsrlove My dogs go nuts for this food!
I am so pleased with this food. My dogs go absolutely crazy for it. I use kibble in the morning and feed this in the evening and have noticed such happier tummies. Even my super picky female dug right in. It is pricey, but well worth it to know what they are eating and that they love it so much. The transition was easy and no upset tummies during it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marsaface19 Piston Loves It!!!!
My Shiba Inu, Piston is in love with this food. He was previously eating Blue Buffalo's Basic Salmon and it would take him forever to finish his food. I can't even get through the 3 minutes it takes for it to re-hydrate before he's barking and demanding its put in front of him. I changed his diet in hopes that the benefits will help with the nerve damage he has in is paw due to him getting hit by a car a year ago. I do see improvement and I hope this will continue as he continues his diet change!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Natalie890 Poor digestion and poor texture
With both of my dogs, one with a strong GI tract and the other not so much, when I feed this food they poop way more often, it's softer, and has chunks of this food in it. I sometimes make their food completely from scratch and that includes some fruits and cooked vegetables, which they digest fine. It makes me wonder if these dehydrated plant foods were not cooked first. Raw meat is fine for dogs if that's what the owner wants, but raw plants are too hard to digest.
I also had a lot of trouble getting any kind of nice consistency with this. It was either pasty or watery, whether I added warm or cold water and no matter how long I let it sit. I just imagined it gluing to their teeth.
Too bad, because I liked the list of ingredients. And the whole human-grade thing is nice, even if I'm not sure I believe it.
