Review: The Honest Kitchen

A few weeks ago, the kind folks at The Honest Kitchen sent Henry and Sally a care package full of free samples of their dehydrated dog food!  The Honest Kitchen has a wide variety of grain-free formulas, made with fresh, human-grade ingredients.  Henry got two boxes of Zeal - made with fresh white fish, and only 8.5% fat.  (Henry's trying to watch his figure.)  Sally got two boxes of Embark - also grain free, made with fresh turkey, and great for pooches with sensitive stomachs.

We weren't familiar with preparing dehydrated foods before, but the instructions for preparation and feeding made it easy.  After measuring out the appropriate amount for my dogs, it was a simple matter of mixing in some warm water and letting it sit for a few minutes.  I was surprised by how far such a small box would go - with our tiny dogs, these samples lasted us almost two weeks!  The timing was nice, too - it was COLD here in Colorado a few weeks ago, so I felt good feeding my dogs some warm food for a change!

At the first feeding, I was worried that the dogs might be confused by the appearance or smell of the new food, since it was so different from what they were used to.  (Prepared, the food looks and smells a bit like Indian Saag.)  But no, they dived into their was love at first lick!

For the week the chiweenies were on this food, they were healthy, happy, and active.  Neither dog had any digestive complaints, or any change in energy levels.  We were really impressed with the high quality of this dog food.  To add icing on the cake, each of the sample boxes had a high value coupon attached - so we'll definitely be stocking up on our next trip to our local pet food store.

If you're interested in trying The Honest Kitchen dog food with your pet, head over to their Facebook page to get a voucher for a free sample, redeemable at any local retailer who carries The Honest Kitchen!
