Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorota Almost miraculous transformation for my old girl...
My old girl, a 13 year old lab-rotty mix, has bad arthritis and has developed what we think is allergies. To what, we don't know. Her eyes are puffy and look infected, like bacterial conjunctivitis, but the antibiotics didn't help it. Steroids did. And...she has lick granulomas that have been there for years. I could never get them completely healed. So I did some research and found grain free allergen free food that appears to be all natural. She has been on this food for over a week now. She gobbles it right up. I can't prep it fast enough for her. Her eyes are finally looking better (although not completely healed yet). Her lick granulomas are no longer raw and bleeding but seem to be healing nicely (to my amazement!). And I caught her running around the yard with my adolescent fur baby like she was a puppy again! It makes me so happy to see her doing so much better. There were a couple of times last year I thought I was going to lose her. This food might not be for every dog, but it has been perfect for us. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt So glad we found this
One of our dogs has a very sensitive GI. We had him on another food that our vet recommended but we weren't very pleased with the quality of the ingredients. We discovered this food and made the switch. He loves this food so much he cleans his bowl, which he never did before. Our other dog got very jealous and would beg to have this food so we have switched her to it as well. They both have so much energy now! From the second you open the bag you can tell this food is good quality, there are actual pieces of real food in it. Very happy we made the switch to this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyDogLady Great food but very pricey
I love Honest Kitchen's foods, my dogs all look phenomenal when I feed it to them. Their ingredients are truly quality, no fillers, and because they produce their food in human-grade facilities they are much safer than other dog foods and less likely to have recalls.
I do think however that these foods are very expensive for what you get volume-wise. A 10-pound box of Honest Kitchen will feed one of my 35-pound dogs for about 8 days, so more or less I'd be looking at 4 boxes a month for one dog. I have multiple dogs and it's not financially possible for me to feed this food exclusively.
I do like to use Honest Kitchen as a "topper" for the other food that I do feed. I put about a tablespoon of HK on top of the kibble, add water, and it makes a tasty gravy. I also like to feed HK to dogs who are off their feed for any reason, as they really like the way it tastes and often if I reconstitute the HK with warm chicken broth I can get a dog to eat who wasn't interested in anything else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NikoO Wonderful ingredients... but Mack doesn't like it :(
Our dog Mack was diagnosed with pancreatitis last year. The vet gave us some special food but I don't usually care to feed our pets any veterinary diet food since it usually contains poor ingredients. I searched for low fat canned, grain-free food and was using Fromm 4-Star Nutritionals Chicken until it was discontinued earlier this year. My hunt for a low-fat food was on again. I read about HK Zeal and it sounded so good! I bought a 10 lb. box and started serving it to Mack. Well, he ate it for about a week and then NOPE! He wouldn't touch it, and he's not a picky dog. In fact, I don't think I've ever served him anything that he flat out refused. I've ended up making him homemade food but have decided to try to using up the box a little at a time, as a gravy to mix in. I'd suggest buying a smaller quantity at first and seeing if your dog will eat it on a consistent basis. The other reviews seem to bear out a "love it or hate it" dog response so, if your dog loves it, great! If not, you wouldn't have spent a lot of money on something your dog won't eat.

Ingredients in food are good quality for dogs with allergies or digestive problems. Once is cooked with hot water it doubles the portion. It only needs hot water for preparation and is not too inconvenient at all, I do wish that it was more specific about the amounts to mix. We recommend it and really like it.

Honest Kitchen Zeal seems to be a very pure food. I use it as a topper on kibble and they devour it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alfy313 My Pomeranian has way more energy and healthier hair!
My 9-year old pomeranian is a bit arthritic and easily injures himself trying to jump around on non-carpeted floors. He takes medicine when it acts up but my groomer recommended a switch to Honest Kitchen due to the anti inflammatory properties of eating it which would benefit his overall health especially the arthritis.
He's picky so I knew switching the food would be hard and I wasn't wrong so I do still incorporate Fresh Pet Select chicken and spinach into this food because this does have more carbs than protein. He absolutely loves it how I measured it out for him and within just 3 days his hair has gotten tremendously softer and he has way more energy than ever before. He's more playful now and there is a lot less limping. It has only been a week, so I can't wait to see how he keeps getting healthier thanks to this!!
