When it says “cups of meat to add per day” is that 8 ounces of raw or cooked meat? Since raw meat cooks down this could make a big difference.
Answer by ChewyApr 09, 2018
The measurement is based on raw, uncooked meat.

How many lbs of meat (total) do you need to add to make the whole box (7lb box of base).? I’d like to buy all the meat I need at once, prepare all the food & freeze most of it. Thank you.
Answer by ChewyJan 01, 2020
Overall, you will need approximately 5 pounds of meat for the 3 pound bag of base mix, and approximately 11 1/2 pounds of meat for the 7 pound bag of base mix.

Hello, someone asked if there were pesticides used to grow any ingredients and the answer was vague- the answer was that there are no chemicals in the product, which could mean chemicals as ingredients. Can you please clarify that no pesticides were used to grow any of these ingredients? Thank you!!
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2019
The Honest Kitchen raw ingredient suppliers use very minimal pesticides, and only when deemed necessary to protect a crop against pests. If pesticides are used, the produce is tested for residues in accordance with normal food standards for humans.

How long will this last on 21/3 cups a day
Answer by ChewyMar 13, 2021
The 3-pound box contains about 12 cups of base mix per box, so that should last approximately 5 days (if feeding 2 1/3 cups per day). The 7-pound box contains about 29 cups of base mix per box, so that should last approximately 12 and a half days (if feeding 2 1/3 cups per day).

Absolutely love this. Highly recommended!

My dogs love this food and I feel good about the quality ingredients in the base mix and my ability to add high-quality protein to the base mix. I typically add a mix of chicken and beef to the base mix along with occasionally chicken liver, eggs, and/or sardines. I cook the meat in big batches and chop it up in a food processor, freeze it in small bags to defrost for a few days at a time. I have 3 dogs and it's easy to do. Even with more dogs, it wouldn't be hard to feed this food, especially with cooked protein. What I also like about this base mix is I can have homemade quality food but my vet doesn't freak out about feeding a homemade diet without being sure it's nutritionally balanced with all the vitamins and minerals dogs need.

Great Dehydrated food - different use.

I have used Honest Kitchen before when we first got my oldest dog. She has a horribly sensitive system (God forbid she gets her mouth on beef, chicken, turkey - basically anything but salmon). It is impossible to find anything that she can eat that won't be coming out one or both ends within the hour. Although she is roughly 80 pounds and my other dog is roughly 70 pounds, I don't entirely give them the full amount. 4 tablespoons of this that is rehydrated in hot water, 1 tablespoon of cooked organic (nothing added) oats, one vitamin, and one cup of Purina one salmon and sweet potato. I love this method and has helped fully stopped them from wanting to eat the weeds and grass in the yard as well as doesn't terrorize my dog's stomach after eating. They get very excited the moment they see us make this and wait very patiently while waiting for it to finish/cool. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that the price is massive compared to their other products and tends to be less within it. The picture below is how it looks rehydrated in the bowl and the order it is put into it before serving.

My dogs love this product

This is a great was to feed my dogs a healthy alternative to dry processed fog food. I purchase the base mix then add my own protein. it makes traveling with your pet very easy since you just need to add water to hydrate it my dogs love the taste and they have lost a few pounds and are healthier since switching to this diet the price on Chewys is the lowest price I have found anywhere, just disappointed that it went up $7 since I purchased it a week ago.

Hey Mikey! She likes it!

Super picky eater does NOT describe my greyhound - no, she has an Olympic gold metal in not eating. It can make you feel insane! But enter the fruit & veggie - she literally gobbles down her meals, and sorry for tmi - but amazing poops! Yay! The best she’s ever had. So it’s a win-win-win!

Great stuff!

I use this as a base and add protein (dish, chicken, venison or beef- or kibble). Rudy likes it, and he’s as healthy as a 11 year old Shepherd can be.

Worry free raw feeding

Balancing a raw diet is not something most pet owners are good at, this solves the problem.

Excellent product

My two toy morkey poos LOVE this food. I bought the one with grains also & they love this one too. I love that the food is dehydrated & easily rehydrated. It contains all the nutrients they need and I top it off with freshly cooked meat.

Honest Kitchen Base Mix

Great product! Buster has been eating like it was filet mignon and have already seen a big improvement in his stool. Do not know yet but hoping it will improve his health too.
