The Honest Kitchen Dog Food gets our highest rating for the high quality ingredients that their food is manufactured with—the company actually applied to the FDA to get a “human grade” approval and it was granted. The dog and cat food is manufactured in the U.S. in Honest Kitchen’s privately owned facility where human food is manufactured as well. Most of the ingredients are from the U.S.
The food is dehydrated, so water needs to be added to rehydrate it or it can be put on other foods as a supplement. Honest Kitchen’s dog food does not use fillers, and the foods contain a healthy amount of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Most of the Honest Kitchen dog foods also include fruits and vegetables which are beneficial to a dogs health and not included in many main stream foods. This is a company that is also very environmentally conscious so they try to use whole ingredients including animals that are raised humanely (e.g. free range chickens and wild haddock).
The reviews of The Honest Kitchen Dog Food are overwhelmingly positive. The only complaint that is echoed by many dog owners is the price of the food, which is more than many ultra-premium dog food formulas. For example, a 10lb bag of dog food (which makes 40-48lbs of fresh food) can cost from $60 – $80. However, many dog owners did not mind the price, since the ingredients in Honest Kitchen are highly nutritious, and of very high quality. Most all dog owners reported favorable results when feeding their dogs Honest Kitchen dog food.
