Honest Kitchen dehydrated food

I have been using this in Lola's morning meal- I add a bit of EVO dry- OR sometimes sardines- and then add warm broth or water to all to hydrate for 5 minutes or so. Lola seems to love it! At her night meal I feed her 100% raw. I just wondered if any of you also use Honest Kitchen? Honest Kitchen also has herbal blends for energy, coat and digestion. I use them all. I am very impressed with the ingredients- and the way the company cares about what they put out.

I've used Honest Kitchen for years as a topper on our trio's dinners. I alternate between that and green tripe.

Just switched over to THK. Use Wysong Epigen and Optimal Performance in small dry components.
Use the 1/2c Verve + 1/4c of Epigen for the two Corgis, one of who has a very sensitive stomach. The 11 mo GR gets 1c THRIVE + 1c Optimal. Twice a day. Been on it for almost three months.

Sensitive corgi is doing great, overweight corgi lost 2.5#, both coats lit up like Christmas trees within two weeks. The Golden has added 5+# of needed weight and looks great as well. Energy levels up and no stool issues anymore.

Got real tired of food related issues with accompanying vet bills, not to mention life threatening issues. THK is great and the people are wonderful to work with on specific needs. Wysong is also. I use it to lower costs a bit while not giving up the quality.

Our Friend who has two Springers also used THK and uses their supplements as well and swears by all of it.

I used THK for a few months and Tayla was ok with it, she ate it, but frankly I didn't like how it looked or smelled and it was expensive. I switched her over to Grandma Lucy's which is similar except it is freeze dried and not dehydrated. You still add warm water. It looks more like stew and you can see the carrots, celery, etc. in it and it also has some larger chunks of meat. Best of all it makes more cups of food for the same sized bag so it is less expensive for me than THK. I also like that it comes in Pork and Rabbit as in Chinese Medicine Tayla is a fire dog (she runs hot) and I try to stay away from Chicken and Turkey because they are "hot" meats. Pork is neutral and rabbit is cooling so we have better choices with Grandma Lucy's.

I use it as a topper/treat for mine. If they had a bad day they get it ie Mom tried to drown them! (True meaning- I gave them a bath which none of the 4 enjoy). Roxy my littlest one will sometime only get the HK but at 3.5-4 pounds who cares what she eats as long as she eats Cozy, Lucy, and Buddy would and have eaten cardboard so food is food to them. I will also give it to them and not kibbles if they have upset tummies from eating too much of natures' raisenettes aka deer poop!

I do what I like and like what I do. Yorkies- Cozy (4/1/06), Roxy & Zoey (2/11/08), Lucy (4/6/09); Golden- Buddy (4/13/09- Rescued 12/11) Maine Coon cats- Mika (1998) and Tallulah (2000)
