I'm feeding two young Standard Poodles, one with Pancreatitis. Preference is the only option for us - low in fat and by being selective with meat I can keep the fat content low enough to keep my pup healthy and very happy. I've tried other home cooking options - none has the right balance of protein and carbohydrates. Very happy with the product - supplemented with probiotics and goat milk - also from THK. A bit of research to find this in Canada - I do wish I could order directly, but now have a great supplier.
After previously using (and loving) the "kindly" base mix, I have found I prefer the kindly mix. This recipe is still very high quality, but I noticed that the kindly recipe absorbed the water better. I have had issues with this recipe not absorbing the water all the way, and would have a much more watery food for my dogs. I have also noticed it takes a lot more time to absorb when compared to the kindly recipe. This is why I gave it only 4/5 paws for a rating. My dogs still loved it and scarfed it right down, but I personally prefer the kindly recipe. If the things I noticed wouldn't bother you, then this is still an amazing food and hasn't changed my opinion about the brand what so ever.
Our very picky eater has eaten his dinner every night since we received the base. I just add whatever meat we are having to the base and DONE! I know he's getting the proper nutrition!
Prior to switching to THK, feeding time was a fiasco. For the first 9 months our pup Whisky ate his high quality kibble fine - even excited about it. Then suddenly he was no longer enthused and we often had to wrangle him to eat. He would ignore the food and only eat when we were about to take it up. It was so time consuming and frustrating! I had always wanted to cook for him and after consulting the vet I started doing research. THK Preference mix seemed like a good fit - quality ingredients, easy prep work, balanced nutrition, and a way to incorporate variety. The mix smells like dry soup and after adding water the consistency is like oatmeal. The first time I fed it to Whisky I mixed his kibble in as a way to acclimate him to it. Initially he ran off thinking it was the same dinner but I showed it to him and he gobbled it up. He even kept returning to the bowl to lick ewery morsel. It's been two weeks and he is always super excited to eat. He always runs back to the kitchen hoping for seconds. Since feeding this food I've noticed it doesn't make him really thirsty the way kibble did. He no longer has gas and his stool is firm every time. The biggest change I've seen is his energy levels. He is just a year old and has lots of energy already but after eating this food he gets a MAJOR boost. He loves it!
I love this base mix and so does my border collie. It is very easy to use and since I add my own meat I can give her a variety of meats. I have tried other products of this sort but this one is so much better in that it is ground very fine so it fully rehydrates. Others I have tried never seem to rehydrate fully which resulted in rock hard poops. Now poops are great.
