Rated 5 out of 5 by Morrison The Honest Kitchen Dog food
I use this dog food everyday on both of my Corgi's and they do really well on it. I recommend it to anyone that wants to use a grain free dog food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ursula Ribs poking out on THK and more than 3x the stool
I have a 7-year-old GSD with a very sensitive stomach. The good news is we have gotten to 50% THK Embark and 50% chicken and rice and he is tolerating THK without diarrhea (unlike 8 other kibbles we've tried). But, the weight is just falling off of him. His ribs are poking out even after increasing both THK and his old food -- and I am feeding nearly 40% more than what THK recommends for an 80 lb active dog. The other downside is that on THK he is producing more than three times the stool (and we're only on a partial serving). And this is after waiting 15+ min to let the food re-hydrate (which tortures the poor guy). I haven't seen any real improvement in coat or energy so far, which is surprising at this price level.

Tried a smaller box of this after the fish was refused. She ate this at first but turned her nose up it after that. Gone back to basic can dog food.

This food is not overly processed and contains healthy, human grade ingredients. I feed it to my Toy Fox Terrier who has kidney disease. I adopted him from the shelter as a senior and soon discovered he was in kidney failure from glomerular nephritis. The vet cleaned his teeth hoping this was the cause. His lab work did not improve, so we prepared ourselves to lose him within a couple months. It has been over a year now and he is active, beautiful, energetic and looks like a young dog! The vet calls him a miracle dog as the protein levels in his urine went from 4+ down to 1. I don't know how much Embark helped his condition, but I know that overly processed kibble with cheap ingredients put in for profit not health would definitely not have helped him. In fact, I believe the starches in kibble are what caused his tartar and subsequent dental and kidney disease. The only downside is the expense, so it isn't for everyone's pocket book especially if you have a large dog.

Love Honest Kitchen, our 16month Weimaraner has colitis. We had a terrible time finding a dog food that didn't cause lots of diarrhea. Yes this is expensive but you have to use what works, and she love it

My dog has a sensitive stomach, since switching to THK Embark he's had no stomach problems & no loose stools. I'm very happy with the human grade ingredients & my dog loves it.

This is the best of all the Honest Kitchen formulas. My dog has a sensitive stomach and is a finicky eater. He came to me from the shelter and had loose stools probably due to stress related colitis. Although I had him on an alleged "high quality" dog food (Hill's Science Diet) he just never did well on it. I had a bit of a trial and error period after his adoption. Homemade dog food was a headache as I never knew if I was giving him enough of certain nutrients. I researched the best dog foods and Honest Kitchen really impressed me. Initially he did well on Honest Kitchen Keen but of course after buying a 10 lb box his bowels became watery again. He also did terribly on Honest Kitchen Thrive. That made him incredibly ill and his bowels exploded. It probably was the quinoa in it. I think he just does not do very well with grains. Since I started him on Embark, his stools have been nice & solid and he loves the food. I supplement this food with chicken breast since he is very active and also spoiled rotten.
