Great for pancreatitis BUT MUST ADD MEAT

I have a yorkipoo who had to be hospitalized for pancreatitis. When she recovered, the vet informed me she could never eat more than 7% fat in her food again. They gave me a vet formula can food to try that, when I opened it, was surrounded in a layer of fat--I couldn't believe it. I tried a few different foods, all of which smelled bad and were very high in carbs, which is not good for a dog either. Finally, I decided to see if Honest Kitchen had something that would work, since I had been feeding it to my other dogs for years. The beef whole grain was low fat at 8.5%. Though it was a little bit higher fat than recommended, I decided to try it, since I was desperate even though my yorkipoo has never seemed to like beef. She wouldn't touch it. I then tried the whole grain base mix at 5% fat mixed with the recommended amounts of turkey breast, low fat fish or chicken breast. She loves the food and does great on it--no more pancreatitis. Feeding this way is expensive, though, and you have to add the recommended amount of meat to the mix to meet your dog's nutrition requirements. You cannot just serve the mix alone.

The Honest Kitchen Base Mix

Much as I love The Honest Kitchen products, my dog simply cannot tolerate this Base Mix. His stools become too soft, even though I introduced this food over several days by a teaspoon per meal. Maybe the problem is my dog, who suffers from kidney disease, heart murmurs, and hypothyroidism. I will have to donate this item to my local animal shelter. Some dogs will be very lucky to have this food, I am sure.

top notch service

This is a review for chewy’s customer service: Truly top notch service. My dog used to eat this base mix along with a few different treats frequently ordered from chewy. Unfortunately, she had to have an emergency splenectomy a few weeks ago and can no longer tolerate certain food items. Chewy was incredibly generous and refunded the food that she was no longer allowed to consume with no questions asked. Also as a side note, I received the most wonderful painting of my baby in the mail a few weeks ago which brought tears to my eyes (in a good way!) Could not be more impressed with this company. Highly recommend them.

Pretty good

I like this mix it's a good blend. It's a little bit of a pastier texture compared to some other mixes, but that's not necessarily a bad thing since the oats being powdered doesn't cause hacking for my pup. I'd buy it again if I wasn't able to get something else or was trying to save a few bucks.

Favorite Vegan Recipe from Honest Kitchen

I love the ingredients in this recipe the most. Super happy with the superfoods in it and no potatoes! I can't afford to do just this so I instead use a couple tablespoons mixed with water as a topper/booster on my dogs kibble once a day and they love it!

Yummy food

My dog loves the food. We switched him to Honest kitchen after we adopted him. His poops are perfect. This base mix is good. I mix in my own protein. He loves it.

Yeast inhibitor if u have a dog sensitive to yeast

While this may be a good product for some dogs, it is not for mine. I did a gradual introduction of this food to my wired hair dachshund. A week in his head, shaking started getting worse. I top dressed 80%raw meat, 10% bone and 10% organ meat.

Word of caution on nutritional information

I will start by saying that my dog likes this food, it is easy to prepare, and she has had no G.I. upset. That said, the nutritional information on the box is for the base mix only and therefore the guaranteed analysis is not an accurate reflection on the final product we feed our dogs. For medical reasons I am careful on the percent of my dog’s diet that is protein vs fat vs carbohydrates but it is impossible to calculate it. I contacted the company (multiple times) and understandably, they can’t give an accurate guaranteed analysis for once the protein is added since different proteins will yield different results. However, I asked for the data they have from their own testing so I could get a ballpark estimate on the guaranteed analysis and they refuse to give me that data. They presumably did testing on this product before rolling it out and I am very concerned with the refusal to share data (or alternatively, they didn’t do testing, which is equally as bad). I am just sharing this as a word of caution for anybody who takes pet nutrition seriously. Their lack of candor and willingness to share data makes me concerned about the company overall. I have asked for my concerns to be escalated to their nutrition and product teams and will post an update if I get the data I requested.

We love Honest Kitchen products

I stew or steam sweet potato chunks, butternut squash chunks, and cranberries in low-salt beef or chicken broth, then when it cools I mix the Base Mix into it. Lots of good stuff in there!!
