    Well, Caiza has been eating the honest kitchens "preference" for two weeks now and alls I can say is WOW :lol-sign: ! Softer shiny coat, no bad breath, and tiny little turds for stool :p I have been adding my own home cooked meals to the preference usually a combination of chicken gizzards, lamb lungs, chicken or lamb livers and ground meat. Lamb, beef, or bison along with a scoop of pumpkin, plain all natural yougurt and a tablespoon of safflower oil. What a huge difference from a kibble fed diet. Love it! And Caiza is a CHOW hound standing at his dish for at least 3 minutes after he is done eating to make sure he didn't miss anything :D

    Herschel is doing very well on their Embark formula. We add stuff for his dinner but his breakfast is just Embark, water, and some olive oil.

    For anyone else that is interested, Preference is basically a mix that you add to a protein source to make a complete diet.

    Red_ACD, have you considered the pre-mixes from Sojourner Farms? http://www.sojos.com

    It is relatively expensive, but worth it.

    Embark is about $40 for 4lbs, which rehydrates to about 16-17 pounds of food. Herschel is small so he only eats a little bit less than 1/3 of a cup of it dry per meal, but for Ruckus it might be too expensive.

    It's wicked expensive. I had clients on it, and I know specifically with the Embark they could not digest everything in the food (which is just uselss).

    I'm also not a fan of HK as they are/were PETA supporters, even though they claim to only be supporters to get the list of meat dealers . . . BS!

    I'd rather feed my dogs raw or Innova Evo. Both are cheaper than HK and neither support terrorists such as PETA.

    I can't seem to finding the feeding recommendations for this food... We're really happy with Orijen, but I'm being curious ;)

    Would you mind providing links to prove that ?
    I have heard nothing like that. I know that my gang is eating evo and hk and they are the picture of health. If they are funding Peta I may reconsider but I need proof not just you saying that it is so.

    That means that Paul McCartney, Thom Yorke (Radiohead), and a million other people should be boycotted, as well.

    I don't agree with PETA but its ridiculous to chastise The Honest Kitchen for indirectly supporting them. :rolleyes:

    I'm happy with the results that I've seen and I'm going to continue to feed it, despite the price.

    They should be boycotted. Sorry, anyone who thinks that my dogs should be taken from me, would rather see my dogs PTS than survive loved and happy, does not deserve my respect.

    Do some research into PETA (I was a supporter about 10 years ago) and you will be horrified at what they really stand for. They hide behind the guise of nudity and fur and there is so much more to them . . .

    Our donation to PETA was last year and we will not be donating to them again
    I'm assuming their donation must have run out, but trust me they were on there.

    Hopefully they have done some research into what PETA really is and that's why they did not donate again. It is actually a huge relief to see the name of a raw-ish food company off of their list (how hypocritical is that seeing as how PETA supports vegan and veggie diets for cats and dogs?!).

    So I am very happy to see their name off of that list. But still not a fan of the price nor the random extras that are added to the food.

    "The Honest Kitchen is a PETA Business Partner. As far as the pet food industry is concerned, PETA is working to highlight some of the cruel and unnecessary laboratory-based animal testing that takes place in pet food production. In addition, their lobbying of various meat industries has culminated in the improvement of the living conditions of many animals destined for meat production. These are the primary reasons The Honest Kitchen has associated with PETA. We do not conduct animal laboratory testing and we are striving to use 100% humanely raised meats in all our products in the near future."

    Yikes? I thought that was kind of responsible on their part.

    Well after giving it a try and in light of the dog food poisoning in the country I will feed it until someone proves to me that dog food is safe. I did my homework and I know they are not allowing anything into the food that is not safe. I must say that I am now noticing a big improvement in my dogs and that is good enough for me at this point. Whiskey is looking better then ever and Kahlua's health continues to improve so it will be HK and EVO for them until something else id found to be better. In light that they may or may not support Peta is no big factor to me. You all do not like the cigarette industries either yet they own Nabisco and many other things you do buy. So you are supporting them as well. In this day and age you really do not know what company funds what. They need tax shelters because they are ripping us off daily.

    In every formula, they list "vitamins and minerals." What are these vitamins and minerals, exactly? I like to know exactly what is in my dog food... for all I know, menadione could be in that mixture.
