“What dog food does your dog eat?” I am asked this question quite frequently, and I am always happy to share what works for my dog in terms of the dog food he consumes. I feed my dog, Dexter, a combination of The Honest Kitchen Embark dog food, mixed with Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl, and I add some fresh cooked meat to it a few times a week.
My last Cocker Spaniel was diagnosed at the end of her life with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. In my heart and in retrospect, I believe she consumed tainted chicken jerky (from China), as at the time I had no clue (as most of us didn’t) that we needed to be concerned with things like that. I miss her daily and I vowed to ensure I know what my dog is eating to the best of my abilities with regards to treats and dog food. So after much research and with information in tow, I decided on The Honest Kitchen.
The Honest Kitchen is dehydrated, raw, human-grade pet food. Founded by Lucy and Charlie Postins in 2002, The Honest Kitchen is what I feed my own dog. Dexter had a number of allergies and was not fond of dry food. So we did a trial of this food based on the recommendation of a friend’s dog, who was thriving on it. It is available in a variety of flavors and formulas for both dogs and cats.
Rather than ramble on and on about the quality of the dog food I give Dexter and why I am a fan of The Honest Kitchen, my pet blogging pal, Mary Haight, recently interviewed Lucy Postins for Animal Cafe. She stopped by to talk about pet food ingredients and recipes for dogs. Since Lucy is a nutritionist, take a listen and then consider trying your dog on The Honest Kitchen. I am very pleased with feeding this to Dexter. If you are into rotating the diet, the variety of selections allows pet parents to do this.
