Dehydrated Whole Foods Pet Food Review

Our boxer, Jack is a member of our family so we like to provide him with the highest quality pet food. I recently discovered The Honest Kitchen line of pet foods and fell in love with the concept. The Honest Kitchen takes great pride in using human-grade whole foods from trusted suppliers and then dehydrating it gently to keep the ingredients as close as possible to the natural state.

In fact, the pet food will expand “up to 4 times its original weight” when moisture is added so that a 10lb box of Honest Kitchen Food equals a whopping 41lbs of fresh whole food ingredients! I was very surprised with how much pet food I was able to make from just a 4lb box and this nutrient packed bounty certainly beats the huge bag of dry dog food that takes up a lot of space in our cabinet.

Dehydrated Whole Foods Pet Food

I was originally interested in trying this product when I learned that they do not use ANY ingredients from China (remembering the recent pet food scare terrifies me) and the pet food is made in the United States in a human food facility as opposed to a pet food factory!

Stacie and I both love boxer breeds and I thought you might enjoy watching this adorable video clip featuring a boxer named “Blue” who is discovering The Honest Kitchen.

The Honest Kitchen provides a complete and balanced diet for your dog or cat and it must taste absolutely delicious because Jack gets very excited at meal time and the food disappears quickly! You can choose the best pet food to meet your dog or cats needs by reviewing the ingredients in each recipe formula. For example, “Force” dog food has dehydrated free-range chicken, organic flaxseed, potatoes, apples, organic alfalfa, organic kelp, honey, pumpkin, green beans, cabbage, bananas, papayas, basil, garlic and rosemary…..sounds delicious doesn’t it?!

In addition to the dog and cat food line, The Honest Kitchen also has a wonderful selection of Gourmet Treats and even teas and supplements. I would love to have Jack try the “Lithe tea™” which is designed to help mobility as he is getting older.

You are invited to visit The Honest Kitchen to browse the entire selection of products and shop for your pet’s favorite whole foods and treats. You can use the store locator or shop for all of The Honest Kitchen products from the comfort of your home online too!
