I must admit I was a skeptic when I received the sample and saw it was freeze dried and when I added the water I thought no way will my Yorkie-Poo eat this porridge but I was WRONG. My Buster literally gobbled the food down, I did mix it with some dry food but I have never seen him eat so fast and every bite, he even belched when he finished as if to say "very good"! By the third sample, he knew what I was fixing and followed me around the kitchen very excited for his dinner which he has never done so I will be heading to the store to buy some more!!! It is very easy to mix and nicer than canned wet food for sure so please try this for your pet's sake, they will thank you later! I am very happy to have found something he actually loves to eat and is really healthy for him.

We've had our dog on Honest Kitchen products for about 7 years. He loves the food and is in great health.

This is such a great food! I use it as a topper on dry food but with the water it becomes like a thick soup, a stew of sorts if you will. Bruno loves it so much and it really helps him enjoy the dry food we feed - thanks to THK Force he always has a clean bowl. The only problem for him are the apples - he can't seem to digest them well, even when rehydrated. But that's okay because he still gets a lot of his food - everything else seems to be absorbed pretty well.

I was looking for an easier but just as healthy alternative to a homemade raw diet. Being a Veterinary Technician I understand the importance of nutrition, that being said I'm also very busy, working long hours and rarely have time to prepare raw food for my two babies, a Golden Retriever named Ranger and a Bluetick Coonhound named Huckleberry. I love the idea of a raw diet i just dont have the time. THK is a great alternative, my boys get the benefits of a more natural raw diet and I get to spend the time I need with them rather than preparing meals for them all the time! My boys absolutely love it! I can mix in whatever fresh veggies and fruit I have but in all honesty it isnt needed, its a complete balanced meal with ingredients you can see. I love the lower calories, 446 kcal/cup before rehydration and 223 kcal/cup once hydrated which is great for larger breed dogs who are predisposed to weight gain. Overall great product! Love THK

I have Poodle Bichon mix and he love THK Force. He's is 10yrs old and has had issues with constipation forever. Now that he's been eating THK he is pooping normally and is so happy!

I have a German Shepherd who has pancreatic insufficiency. She was nearly a year old before she was diagnosed. By then in spite of everything I was doing or feeding her, she looked like a malnourished cancer patient. The key for her was the addition of pancreatic enzymes to her dog food. Ideally they would be mixed in something warm. After exploring all my options, I opted to go with FORCE because besides being extremely nutritious, it was ideal to add supplements to and then hydrate with warm water.
In 2 months time my GSD looked amazing.
There was an added bennie to using the FORCE I hadn't expected - my dog's idea of a "treat" is fresh fruits or vegetables! Too bad the same thing doesn't work with human kids!

Duncan is on a raw BARF diet and I have been looking for a grain free raw brand food to supplement a couple of his weekly feedings. He has not had a liking to raw's instict, sojos, or k0. I am very thankful for the sample shipped to me. It took him a few circlings around his bowl, but he dove right in and gulped it down. I am SOLD on the CHICKEN!

I my boys do a happy dance when they smell that I added this to their dog food. They just love it

My basset and mini dachshund are very picky eaters, and both tend to gain weight easily. They absolutely love Thrive and get so excited to eat. And the best news is that they've both lost weight!

Force is a favorite amongst my 2 dogs. They are average activity-level young, healthy dogs and I find that Force is gentle of their digestive systems yet provides all of their necessary nutrients.

Written by Belli | 10/10/14

My dog absolutely loves this food. She is noticeable more excited when she smells the HK food than when she smells other wet foods. I mix it in with kibble, for now. Great product, and the even though the boxes seem pricey, they last a long time for her.
