This is the only food that doesn't give my girl Molly Moo gas. She had opened up the incision and did damage to her intestines. So she has a sensitive digestive system. She loves Zeal.

We were fighting an ongoing skin infection all over my 15 year old Beagle's body, liver failure, and chronic diarrhea until we did a little research on the benefits of Raw diets. We immediately switched her to this food, and we saw immediate results, her energy came back, even running around with the 1.5 year old cockapoo in the yard. It has been a year since she started this food and her skin is healed and the hair is growing back, her liver values are improving and in the low normal range, and her stools are solid and healthy.
We can not thank Honest Kitchen enough for saving our dog's life.

Tonight we tried a sample of the Zeal and Bella couldnt wait for me to put her bowl down after smelling the contents when I opened the package. She was so excited, ate the food in seconds and continued to lick the bowl spotless.

I have two Siberian Huskies and I freeze this in their kongs to give them when I go to work. They absolutely love it. My boy gets excited as soon as he sees me start to make it and my girl begs to lick off the spoon after I've filled the kongs (and while I'm filling them too). It takes some time to prepare, I leave it sit for nearly an hour to get it to the desired consistency, but it is well worth the wait.

My lab mix, Lucy, absolutely loves Zeal. I pull out the container that we store it in and she instantly comes running to the kitchen. She's had issues with food allergies before, but doesn't have any problems eating Zeal.

At first my Scotties were not sure about this new food in their dish and then with one taste they both devoured it. I like the quality of this food for dogs as they have digestive issues. It was recommended by a friend who also uses this for their terriers.

Written by The Girls' Mommy | 10/27/14

I do a lot of research on my girls food before I feed it to them and Honest Kitchen is one of only two brands of food I will allow them to eat. I love the thoroughness and care that this company puts into it products and without them I would have to cook for them myself. Thank you Honest Kitchen for saving me so much work!

Thankfully, the food I love for them, my girls love as well so it's a win-win in my house. They are always so excited for meal time and gobble it right up. Makes me so happy :)

My boyfriend said we should ask Honest Kitchen to rename this food to "The Insta-Log Diet!! My boxer is 10 month old now and he has had diarrhea (the spraying type where we have to hold the baggy against him to try and catch it) since he was a month old. We've tried different alternative proteins, limited ingredient (LID) diets, ultra-premium kibble such as Orijen Six FIsh, with very little improvement. Two days into the Zeal diet, my puppy had normal stools, little logs that we can actually pick up...we were totally blown away! I would totally recommend this diet!! It is on the more expensive side, especially if you have a large dog like mine, but it's well worth the trade-off in vet bills, meds and constant agony of spray poop!

I can't recommend this product based on his reaction; pup was very weary. Not sure if it was the smell or the fact; he's never had anything fishy before. I am thankful for such a great company that provides different protein sources, other than the basics.

When Wyatt's sister died, he went through a small depression stage,and wouldn't eat, unless we gave him a treat, like wet dog food. When my best friend told me how she had started using The Honest Kitchen dehydrated food, and how it changed her pets' lives, we decided to give it a try. She gave us a few flavors that she had, and Zeal is his absolute favorite!!! Ever since we started using this product, he never misses a meal, always licks his bowl clean!
