Questions & Answers

31 Customer Questions

How many lbs of fresh food is this equivalent to and can you add broth instead of water? Thank you.
Answer by ChewyDec 22, 2022
The 2-lb box contains about 8 pounds of of fresh food, the 4-lb box contains about 16 pounds of of fresh food, the 7-pound box contains about 28 pounds of fresh food and the 10-pound box contains about 40 pounds of of fresh food.

I like to ensure the animals raised to feed my dog have a good life. I don't know what "ranch raised beef" means, and I couldn't find a industry standard definition. Could you define how the cattle are treated? What do they eat? Are they pastured or raised in doors? Are they overcrowded?
Answer by ChewyNov 07, 2018
Honest Kitchen ensures that meat animals are raised according to USDA guidelines for treatment according to human consumption standards. This means no 4-D meat (dying, diseased, disabled, deceased animals) ever lands in their pet food. The beef is from a variety of different ranches throughout the Midwest and California. A portion of the beef is range/grass fed and the remainder are fed a grain based diet. Some of their products include Wagyu Beef, raised using a slow-feeding phase of over 400 days. Wagyu beef is fed an all-vegetarian diet and handled with strict care protocols throughout the entire production system. Their beef meat is free of added hormones and antibiotics.

Are the potatoes cooked before being dehydrated? I see in a previous answer that they’re ‘flash heated’ but does that mean cooked?
Answer by ChewyAug 20, 2019
The potatoes in this dehydrated dog food is not technically cooked. The potatoes used in this Honest Kitchen formula are cleaned, steam peeled and flash heated to help break down the cellulose content. The potatoes are then gently dehydrated to remove moisture.

I don't see many actual pieces of beef meat in this product. Is this mostly veggies?
Answer by ChewyMay 20, 2018
This formula contains 16 pounds of dehydrated beef.

Dog approved

My dog adores this food. The beef makes the food very gelatinous, but she doesn't care at all. It's extremely expensive, but she needed a food without peas/lentils, and this was one of the few she would eat.

My dogs love this!

I had a problem getting my dogs to eat kibble even though they had been eating it for a long time. I used to use Honest kitchen and my dogs loved it so i tried the beef. I feed them the recommended dose but they could eat triple that! I have four small dogs and they all love Honest Kitchen.

Human grade

Love the fact it's human grade and pups love it. Just wish it wasn't so high in carbs but watching how Pax and others do on it. I'm more of a raw feeders and low carb options are difficult unless you do your own foods

Big Success

I have been feeding them a really high quality kibble with a supplemental powder gravy since rescuing them. They were very skinny and fur was a mess. Then to get them to eat, I had to add a spoon full of canned food. I had to do a lot of tricks to get them to eat. I would call them to come eat and they would not come. I would follow them around with their dish LOL. I tried this on my sisters recommendation and did half the original kibble and half of The Honest Kitchen Beef, and now they stand next to me wagging tails while I prepare their meal. Never seen such clean bowls. Very expensive, but so was kibble/supplemental powder gravy/canned food, and end up throwing some away after sitting there all day.

The Honest Kitchen Beef Recipe Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Food

Dog loves it. I daily alternate with Honest Kitchen Base and raw meat. To be honest I am a person on a fixed income and feeding Honest Kitchen is a real drain on the family budget. My dog is active in competitive AKC obedience, Tracking and Scent work and it is important to ensure he has good quality food to give him the energy to compete.

Made of real food!

My dog loves Honest Kitchen! She has eaten all the different flavors of the dehydrated grain free formulas. Not sure if the hype about grain free causing heart problems is real, but I decided to add a healthy grain myself to cover that base. I cook quinoa and add to it, because I didn't like the ingredients or amounts in their grained formulas. She has consistent bowel movements that are firm and never diarrhea. She will be 14 in a couple months and still going strong! Good foods like this have kept her healthy.

what happened to this product?

My dog was eating honest kitchen beef formula for many many months with no issues. Then we switched from the grain free beef to the grain formula of beef. When we did this, she started having bloody vomiting. We took her off the grain beef HK food and I cooked for her myself while we waiting for her grain free HK formula to arrive. (Chewy was amazing and sent us a replacement so we could resume the grain free formula). While she was off the honest kitchen we had no issues at all. She was healthy and happy. The day she got back on the honest kitchen grain free formula she started vomiting again. I took her off if it and now once again we have no more vomiting. Why is honest kitchen all of the sudden making her so sick?! They must have changed their formula because this is not good for my dog.

I think we might have succes.

I switched my dog to the grain free food and there has been a great improvement: no more lose stools and the stool odor is really improved. I continue to mix in raw beef and he loves the food.
