My dog recently started having trouble with his kidneys (drinking extra water, excessive urination, and nighttime incontinence) and I immediately suspected his diet. I'd already been adding Honest Kitchen base mixes to his kibble, and so I was able to switch and use the base mix as the primary food source. I'm still figuring out how to make the reduced protein diet work for my dog, but it was a huge relief to have a high quality dehydrated dog food that he's already used to eating. It's been a stressful time, but by shifting his diet to Honest Kitchen plus protein toppers, I've been able to control the amount of protein and still feel confident that my dog is getting all the nutrition he needs
We’ve tried the dehydrated complete meals in the past but I was looking for a way to save a bit of money. The base mix goes a long way for a little dog and I like that I can rotate the protein sources. I use natures variety instinct raw mixers, salmon oil, a few other supplements and then add some cooked meat. My dog goes crazy for it, her stools are small and hardly smell at all and her coat is so soft and shiny. Highly recommend! :)
I ordered 4 new to me raw food base mixtures to try as my chihuahua decided he no longer would eat the 1 I had been using. He wasn't a fan of this 1. My other dogs ate it without issue. I didn't like the consistency of this mixture.
My Havanese rescue sends a four paw salute for the Veggie, Seed and Nut base mix. I had been getting the Honest Kitchen mix with fruit and noticed that my dog spent much longer licking bowl after a meal with this product! She heartily approves.
Great mix! There are so few dog foods that are grain, fish and pea free. We are grateful to be able to feed our pup venison that we hunt with this mix of amazing veggies and more! It’s a powerhouse of ingredients!
I usually feed my pup the fruit and veggie base mix from The Honest Kitchen, but it’s been out of stock from Chewy and the company’s direct website. I bought this as an alternative to get me by, but my pup got an upset tummy from it. It also has dried garlic in it, which there’s some controversy about whether dogs should consume garlic. It’s probably a small amount, but I’m wondering if that’s what was bothering my pup.
I mix this with dehydrated food and my dog's kibble for dinner. At first, I used one whole scoop (1/2 cup maybe?) and wow the poops the next AM were prodigious! I cut back to about a 1/4 cup and my pup is less poopy and seems to really like this stuff. Sorry for the TMI.
Recipe is inconsistent. Sometimes gives my dog diarrhea and sometimes makes him constipated. Not as good as I and Love and You.
Been serving this product to my dogs for many years. I mix it with a rotated raw meat protein such as pig, lamb, cow, fish, deer and rabbit. Reliable good quality product. My dogs stools are perfect, and regular.
my dogs would not eat a drop of this i followed directions and it smells weird.. need to return pls!!
