Those who know me will tell you I rarely endorse commercial pet foods. My preference is for a natural diet, with appropriate supplements to meet the animal’s specific nutritional needs. I have fed my own dogs a natural diet for over fifteen years, and have experienced firsthand the benefits of doing so. It will come as a shock to many to read that I am recommending a commercial food.
The Honest Kitchen’s products are unlike any others I have encountered. Made from dehydrated raw ingredients, their foods are as close to a natural diet as possible. Dehydration is done at a much lower temperature and pressure than is used in producing kibble, preserving nutrients. Their formulas include grain free and gluten free options. Grains are certified organic. Meats are hormone, antibiotic free and fruits and vegetables are guaranteed non GMO. Quinoa is certified fair-trade. And people actually taste the food — what other company can say that? One of my favorites in their line is Preference, a foundation formula to which fresh meat is added. This allows me to vary the meats I feed, as well as adjust quantities.
All of their formulas can be fed in conjunction with a natural diet or as a standalone meal, which provides me with the ultimate in convenience. Some days I arrive home from a long day at the office only to realize I forgot to defrost enough meat for everyone. No problem, I can make up the difference with The Honest Kitchen. When I travel to an event with my dogs, I no longer have to pack a huge cooler of frozen food and stress about keeping it frozen — I just pack a small one and add one of The Honest Kitchen formulas. All I need is warm water to make a meal the dogs love. It really is the best of both worlds — the convenience of a commercial food with the benefits of a natural diet.
