My dog is a very small Chihuahua and a picky eater. She loved this at first prepared the way they suggested it but then stopped. I started to sprinkling it on her food dry and mixing it in and she loves it this way. So if you need to add an additive to your pet's protein diet, try sprinkling this on dry and mixing in rather than rehydrating and mixing it in.
I went down the path of making my own dog food, but don’t have time to prep. Our dog is extremely picky, and I had my doubts about ordering a big box. He loved it. So does his friend that often visits. We don’t use as his primary food, but his nightly “wet food” treat and it’s been amazing.
Four of my six dogs have no issues with this premade fruit & veggie mix, the other two will eat it, but would prefer something else. This fruit/veggie mix is heavy on the ‘greens.’ Seems like a lot of spinach and other green veggies and very few fruits. Because of this, I occasionally mix this in with another premix brand that is heavy on the fruits and light on the veggies. I make my own food with ground meats with bone. Because I have large dogs I make several 20# Tupperware containers at one time. I have found if I cut the meat chubs open and place the meat rolls in the containers and then pour the dry HK in and it basically rehydrates from the meat. This makes the food ‘stiffer’ as opposed to thin or watery. My dogs prefer it stiffer as opposed to runnier. Overall I like Honest Kitchen products, but tend to ‘tweak’ them due to being heavy on certain ingredients (in this case, heavy on the greens and too light on the fruits).
We are longtime THK users as that's the only thing that works for my rescue shepherd with an esophageal disorder. We always get the grain free beef but switched to this since I've been cooking at home much more and would be able to add the necessary protein. We love it even more than the other products! His coat is so soft, his 'old man groans' (he's 10) have lessened and he seems to have more energy. Recommend!
I like this mix of flavorful fruits and veggies and usually mix it with Honest Kitchen's dehydrated chicken recipe or the beef recipe, and use as a topper for my girl's kibble. So much better than canned dog food and she loves it.
My dog has a sensitive stomach and cooking his protein and adding to this mixture gives him a healthy diet
I'm desperately seeking a good vegetable base to go with Olive's salmon protein. I really love the ingredients and passion for this dehydrated dog base, but its way to pasty. I really wish they would create something that had more texture, make in little squares that get soft when adding water? Boxers and other smushy face or large jowls dogs make a complete mess because they can't clean up those little pieces from the bowels. It goes up her nose more times than I would like! lol. I would definitely give this a 5 star base if it had some texture.
I bought this based on the reviews. Upon opening I first noticed the smell. Didn't smell like something my Cavapoochon would eat. I mixed up a little bit with ground turkey and put it with her dry kibble. She threw it up shortly after eating. Won't be feeding this to my dog. The smell is over powering. I wouldn't eat it.
Had trouble getting this item as it was out everywhere. I had email alerts set up but they didn’t tell me, I just happened to see it in stock when I was checking myself. Anyway, this stuff makes home feeding super easy. I actually add in my own grains and other veggies to stretch it out a bit and add other nutrients. I use protein-only canned dog food as the protein source. The old lady has a sensitive tummy and this works for her, she loves it!
One picky - one not but neither will eat. Also a lot of wet green mushy left in the dish. White haired dog has green beard.
