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.

The Mix doesn't contain any B vitamins so don't you still need to augment with b supplement?
Answer by ChewyJul 13, 2017
This base mix contains 6.1 mg/kg of B1. All other b vitamins are provided when you add your meat of choice in a 1 to 1 ratio. As long as the meat is added you will not need to supplement the vitamins.

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.

"Just add meat" is pretty general. Does this include organ meat or just protien meat? Does the base cover vitamins found in organ?
Answer by ChewyMar 12, 2021
It is recommended to add either meat or, or meat with organs to either of The Honest Kitchen base mix recipes. The base mixes include a custom vitamin and mineral complex so adding in bone and organ meat is not a necessary addition. The base mixes are designed with a balanced calcium : phosphorus ratio, weighted slightly heavier in calcium. Optimal Ca: P Levels are within a range that can be between 1:1 and 2:1 Calcium: Phosphorus. The ratio of the finished meal should fall somewhere between these two ranges. Adding raw meat will contribute just phosphorus. Adding meaty bones will contribute both calcium and phosphorus. When combining either of these with the base mixes, the calcium and phosphorus ratios will still remain within these optimal levels but will weight slightly more on Calcium if the bone is added, compared with just meat. After meat has been added to those recipes, the base mixes can be considered a complete and balanced meal.

My only complaint: None!

Food is good for my 2 Chis. They struggled with food issues and are very picky eaters. Either had diarrhea, constipation, loose stools, tarry dry stools, ect.. or they would refuse to eat for days. Even a home cooked diet with simple ingredients was no longer interesting to them and when they became young seniors it was not nourishing enough. I switched to this dog food mix and only use it with fresh meats from the farmer's market. Now both dogs have the energy of puppies, sleep less, and their poop is perfect. There is much less shedding and better body odor even as it gets closer to bathing time. One of my dogs has heart disease and you wouldn't know it from her energy levels. Plus they love this food and start staring at me, barking, and scratching my leg as it gets closer to their dinner time. They haven't done this for years!

Just amazing!

I got this dehydrated dog base mix to replace the canned food for my shih tzus. The first day was more of an introduction, they nibbled on it and didn't seem to wild about it, but by the second day 3 of my 4 fur babies just devoured their meal and have been this way since. I really like the fact that I get to choose their protein and so far they love it with salmon, ground turkey, chicken, and we are trying bison next week.

Plant base mix for home cooking

I have been preparing home cooked meals for my dog Max, and I found that at times I did not plan well to prepare ahead of time. This mix has everything, it takes one minute to mix it with warm water, then you can add your protein, maybe an egg, turkey, etc. I bought it for the convenience, but he really is a picky eater and seems to love these mixes and I don't have to measure to make sure he gets a balance meal.

Love this food so much

My Staffy has a really sensitive stomach and he does the best with this food (and has the best poo!), and he loves it. It took no time to get used to. I keep coming back to this one after trying many. I just put a couple scoops of protein on top and it feels like the healthiest thing that I can feed him, not to mention he loves it! I tend to prep a few servings at a time, so that I don’t always have to wait for it to hydrate, and this works well for me.

Quality food

This seems to be working so far. My sensitive dog was spiraling because the food that she had been on for months suddenly seemed to change quality during the Supply Chain issues. It set her allergies off and she also didn't like the taate of it anymore. I tried like 4 other foods and could not find a good match. While googling for recipes for homemade dog food, I stumbled across this Honest Kitchen base and figured it was worth a shot. It basically looks like a kale/spinach smoothie when rehydrated, and then I add the protein of my choice. My dog licks the bowl clean, and it has stabilized her allergies for now which is great. It's easy to prep, and the box lasted me a decent amount of time for the cost (40 pound dog). It has been pricey because of the cost of adding protein, but I'm glad to just have an option right now that she will eat and that doesn't give her a reaction. It will give me a good starting point if I want to try to introduce other proteins/foods to see what she can or cannot tolerate if I want to eventually go back to bagged dry foods. I haven't run this by my vet yet, so I'm not sure what she would think about this as a long term option, but for now, it's exactly what I need.

Veg & Fruit mix is a no go

Our mom ordered the veg & fruit base mix for us so sometimes when she can't give us homemade veggie soup we can have the pre-mix added to our food and get our daily nutrition. But this one only smells only like Spinach - we ate it just once to please her but thats all and after that we went on a hunger strike for the next day. The Honest Kitchen chef needs to make a tastier vegetarian product for us.

Awesome Healthy Food!

I have a feral-born dog with numerous allergies - everything from beef, chicken, turkey, and pork to rice, oats, brewers yeast, and more. I am feeding this dog base mixed with water and Gentle Giant 90% Canned Salmon plus one package of Advita. He gobbles up his meals, his arthritis is improved, and we've gotten rid of the itchiness and hot spots. I'm thrilled and so is my dog!

Caution High Oxalate Food

Love that this is human grade food, minus the large amount of sweet potatoes and spinach. Those foods are high in oxalates so continued use of this can create an issue with oxalate stones in your dogs.

Great Product

My dogs love it; currently using this only for the evening meal until I use up their kibble’s. After a week or less they stopped itching and their ears are much better in regards to yeast.
