Questions & Answers

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.

Good additive

I have been using this as an additive to my dogs kibble for the past year or so. I have two dogs that I feed it to and they both love the beef recipe. I feed my dogs kibble, add this dehydrated food, add water, and mix. I do not wait for it to rehydrate and my dogs don't seem to care if I wait or not. I also use this as a frozen treat. I rehydrate the product and once it is rehydrated into a paste I freeze it on a lick pad or toy.

High quality, convenient dog food

I bought the Honest Kitchen grain free beef recipe because I was going to be traveling and wasn't sure the hotel mini-fridge would accomodate the amount of raw dog food I needed for my stay. My dogs loved this, their digestion stayed good, and I was super pleased to now have an alternative to use when travel (and sometimes at home, too.

Great “topper” for large breeds!

I use HK to make Ember’s kibble healthier. Even though I buy Earthborn Venture, she enjoys the gravy HK makes mixed with warm, filtered water!

Loki loves his new food

Loki is a picky eater. He often just ignores his food or eats it in small servings. We prepared the honest kitchen, dehydrated food, and he has eaten it all at once every time..

My dogs will not eat

Not only will they not eat this. It look and acts like cement. I had trouble scraping it off the plate to throw away.

Dogs like it but

I like that HK is clean, but it’s not perfect! I agree with the other reviews about it being mushy. I use a little less water and add a tablespoon or two of ground protein to it to give it texture. If I am giving them the beef, I add ground beef. If I’m giving them the chicken, I add ground chicken etc. I simply cook a pound of it in my crockpot and it last a few days in the fridge. Easy enough to heat up too. My picky eater loves real food over kibble, so this works better for us. However, the little one is over weight which means I have to track their portions and calories. A little harder to do with this food, but it can be done.
