Mix food with warm water, stir well and wait 3 minutes for food to hydrate. Stir in your meat of choice. We suggest dividing daily amount into 2 servings. For larger dogs adjust accordingly. Please remember these are only guidelines! Your individual dog's needs will vary with age and activity. Extra fat such as salmon oil or coconut oil may also be added, if desired. You can add slightly more or less water than we suggest, according to your pet's taste. Refrigerate or discard any leftovers.

Transition Instructions

If your dog has never tried our foods before, we recommend starting out slowly. Over a period of 1 to 2 weeks or so, start by adding just a small amount of the Honest Kitchen (with water added) into your dog’s current meals. Gradually increase the amount of the Honest Kitchen while decreasing the amount of your dog’s original diet.

The Honest Kitchen may be mixed in with your dog’s current dry kibble, canned, raw, etc. However, we do not suggest adding in other extra ingredients during the transition if you can avoid it, especially if your pup’s system is very sensitive. After you’ve successfully transitioned your dog to the new food, perhaps after 2-4 weeks or so, and they are doing well, then you may consider adding in extra ingredients or introducing another honest kitchen recipe, etc.

It took about two days of him looking at me like I was crazy for feeding him this green mush but after he finally tried it he is hooked. He waits in the kitchen for it and he has never been interested in dog food. Most of the time I end up throwing processed food out he didn't like and only ate out of necessity. Shinny coat and you can add extra water for the dogs who never drink enough water. … more

  • My dogs love this stuff!

    By on

    On the advice of my holistic vet, I decided to decrease the commercial kibble my dogs receive, and increase the amount of 'whole foods' in their diet. One of my pups is an elderly boy with severe osteoarthritis, one is still recovering from her TPLO (knee surgery) last year and I'm trying to keep her weight healthy, and my youngest struggles with yeasty paws & chin... i decided to try THK's base mix, which gives me the flexibility to add different fresh proteins to their diet as well (i mostly cook chicken, lamb, eggs & occasional liver for them). They all absolutely LOVE this stuff (despite their usual aversion to anything 'green' & healthy-looking).

One of my pups is an elderly boy with severe osteoarthritis, one is still recovering from her TPLO (knee surgery) last year and I'm trying to keep her weight healthy, and my youngest struggles with yeasty paws & chin... i decided to try THK's base mix, which gives me the flexibility to add different fresh proteins to their diet as well (i mostly cook chicken, lamb, eggs & occasional liver for them). They all absolutely LOVE this stuff (despite their usual aversion to anything 'green' & healthy-looking). They wait impatiently for the 3 minutes it takes to rehydrate, and the other 3 minutes it takes me to shred & chop the meat I add... then lick their lips in anticipation as soon as I put their bowls down. I feel better about giving them something healthier and 'homemade', and their health has improved as well. Shiny coats, brighter energy, less yeasty-paw symptoms, etc. The only reason I don't feed them 100% Honest Kitchen is because my elder boy lost too much weight when I was feeding him this exclusively. (He needed to shed a few pounds, but he got too skinny too fast, so I had to add a 1/2 ration of kibble back into his twice daily meals.) Regardless, I will continue to feed them this stuff forever, because i really love this company and this product. As an added bonus, because it's dehydrated, it stores well for longer periods of time, and makes an excellent addition to my 'natural disaster emergency bug-out bag' that I always keep on hand since I live in the land of earthquakes & wildfires! So if me & my pack ever need to hit the road, I won't have to worry about my kiddos not having emergency food. Thanks THK & thanks Chewy for carrying this stuff! We all love it. … more

  • My two dogs go nuts over the grain free greens

    By on

    My little dog who is now 11 needed a diet switch. His liver enzymes were super high on his blood work. We found a butcher who takes an entire chicken & grinds it up into a meat paste. We give the. 1% of the body weight am and 1% pm, they split a raw egg & we use the greens. Before we used pumpkin, blue berries and wheatgrass. I feel much more confident that this HK greens is balancing out all of our dogs needs. The poop is really solid and a lot more now- I guess that’s a good thing since they both have anal glad squeezes every few months (maybe this will help?). Need our do another blood panal on Arnold, now that he is on a100% raw diet. PS my two dogs looooooove the greens!!!!

  • Sick dog gains

    This food was a gift, a random person who heard about our dog & all the issues we have had. She brought a box to me and said try it! Our puppy has been sick, all test give a negative result MRI, Spinal tap, CT, Ultra Scan, Blood work, urine-fecal...we have done it. Food was the only thing we didn't change because he was on a premium prescription food. This stuff has changed our dog! He is gaining weight and full of puppy life!

  • Excellent alternative for older dogs!

    By on

    I have 2 black lab mixes that are 9 years old. Wanted to get them on something a little bit healthier for them in general, and kinder to their joints. Have been using HK grain free for about a month now. The dogs absolutely love it! Stools are much firmer, no more issues with anal glands. Add chicken, fish, or beef. They are eating better than my husband and I! My only (minor) criticism is the time indicated for re-hydration (3 minutes). Not enough time (or water). I make enough for 2 days at a time and the mix is very dry. When I add more water, it is fully absorbed. So I add more water than recommended.

  • Makes my dogs happy

    By on

    I own small dogs (10-17 pounds) and feed 2x/day. I mix a heaping tablespoon in with their kibble and add broth from Chewy. Once they figured out the addition was tasty, they now can't wait for their meals.

  • Great Product!

    By on

    Our dog loves this food, licks the bowl for 2 minutes afterwards. After alot of research and deciding to discontinue kibble, this product offers the raw diet quality without the hard work and is worth the price. Our girl is doing so well on this food! Hope Chewy never stops offering.

  • My Review for Zoey

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My dog has been using this brand under 2 years. After switching her food from a quality name brand, she has no more digestive problems and she is more energetic. I tried other formulas of The Honest Kitchen and this by far was the one she likes the most.

  • Quick and easy

    By on

    I have been feeding Honest Kitchen to years to the dogs. Recently, I bought 1/2 of a cow and decided to feed it to the dogs using the Honest Kitchen base mix and adding the beef. I am still transitioning from Honest Kitchen Marvel and adding more of the base along with the beef. I am cooking the beef, but the suggested feeding amounts are for raw meat, so there is some adjustments I need to make in the portion. I like the idea of knowing the quality of the meat.
