ABOUT THE HONEST KITCHEN: The Honest Kitchen started in Lucy Postin’s kitchen in 2002 when she started making her dog’s meals from scratch to help combat his ear infections. The physical difference from his new diet was spectacular but her kitchen was a mess. Lucy then realized that dehydrating whole foods made mealtimes much simpler while maintaining the natural health benefits of the ingredients. From there, The Honest Kitchen was born – and her kitchen stayed much cleaner! Today, The Honest Kitchen is on a mission to revolutionize the pet food industry through their obsession with product integrity and commitment to help as many pets as possible get on the road to good health through natural, wholesome proper food.

Not RAW, not honest

Notice how it says “Raw dog food” then “with chicken”. It’s written this way because it’s not entirely raw, the chicken is cooked. Cooked proteins are likely to be allergenic! The whole point of a raw diet it for it to be raw so it isn’t allergenic and is easy to digest, and of course the most important part of the dog’s diet is the protein source. I wish this company would stop trying to trick people into thinking their food is raw. Some dogs do not do well on this product. The owners assume it is raw and then assume raw doesn’t work. In many of these cases, the dog would benefit from a truly raw diet. For this reason I really wish The Honest Kitchen would straighten up and give up the practice of deceit. They are essentially harming many, many animals who could find relief on a truly raw diet. I have already had this discussion with their representative many years ago. The company did change their wording so that they no longer tell outright lies, but it is still deceptive. I can’t imagine they care about anyone’s pet if they carry on like this. If your pet has had issues such as hot spots, digestive upset, body odor, itchy feet or any other chronic condition, ask your vet if it could be an allergy to the cooked proteins in this diet. If it is, and you were under the impression that you were feeding raw protein, let the manufacturer know. They have to know how many pets they are harming, or they will never straighten up.

Excellent dog food

I use Honest Kitchen Thrive and my Scottie loves it. He can hardly wait for it to rehydrate, have his meat or cottage cheese on top and get it down at his level to eat. He absolutely THRIVES on this food. He is a healthy, lively and happy chappie. I would not hesitate to recommend this food to anyone. It is super!

Dogs love it and easier than raw frozen to store and feed!

I feed Thrive to one of our dogs that tends to put on weight. He gets some raw frozen (which we have for our other dog) but this guy actually does better with the raw frozen and a mix of the Honest Kitchen Thrive and Preference than just on raw alone. We were giving him some high quality kibble but the vet suggested this was adding to his weight issues, said she’s found that the less the food was processed, the more lean muscle mass the dogs tend to have. Plus dehydrated is great to have on hand all the time. Recently HK has begun packaging the food in a ziplock bag which should be great, the old bags were a pain to try to keep properly sealed. Since I am only feeding one dog, and buy the bigger packages for the cost savings, I’ve been pouring the food into half-gallon mason jars and then removing the air with my FoodSaver jar sealer – works great!

My Dogs Do Thrive on This Food

My dogs, a Maltipoo and a Papillon, love this food and it seems to have improved the quality of their coats. Our only problem is all the whining and begging while they wait for it to rehydrate! Feeding time is definitely the noisiest time of the day because they love this stuff! I like feeding it because it is nearly like feeding raw without all the mess of handling raw meat.
