Thrive Chicken Recipe was recommended as a supplement to help my Shane gain weight following a bout with kidney failure.
He absolutely loves it and even stands on his hind legs to get to his bowl! He NEVER has done that before. I supplement his kibble morning and evening and he has gained a couple of pounds in the past two weeks. We'll be sticking with this food.

Easy to use and seems healthy My dog likes it too. The sample package should be availble at stores.

My dog didn't like it at first. The suggested water to mix ratio is way off. The consistency is not very appealing to her. We had to experiement with how much mix and how much water we put in it. She's starting to eat it, but she doesn't love it. It's alright.

Wiggles has been eating THK for several years now. She's tried all flavors and at first her favorite was Force. Then she decided her favorite was Keen. But in the past 4-5 months her favorite is Thrive. She gets suuuuper excited to eat and gobbles up her food in seconds. Then she will go back and lick her bowl clean. There have been a few times where my husband wasnt sure if I had fed Wiggles yet and fed her...and even though I had already fed her she would gobble up the second bowl! Shes obsessed with Thrive.

My little guy is definitely not a fan of this. We got him this type because when we ran out of food, this is the only type that the store had, and I wouldn't dare take my pup away from Honest Kitchen, He Definitely does not Thrive off of this. He's constantly hungry, but doesn't wanna touch all of his food. My guy has never been a begger, until he decided that he didn't like this one. He LOVES Honest Kitchen, and won't eat anything else, but this one is not the one.

My dobe seemed to be a little unsure of the texture but when I mix it with something with a more solid consistency he seems to really enjoy it. Great for when we go out camping, because he will eat it all up.

This recipe is I think my favorite to get for my dog. She's a mix, about 35 lbs, 5 years old and no health problems (knock on wood). But I think she digests more of this recipe than others I've tried (Keen, Verve, Revel), in other words, less poop :) This recipe does seem to be more finely ground than the others though, so requires more mixing and takes longer to absorb the water. But overall excellent choice!

We got two samples of this because we wanted to see if it could make our picky eight month old Beagle eat her food in one sitting, instead of picking at it throughout the day.

Well, it did the trick. I mixed The Honest Kitchen with her kibble this morning and she gobbled it down. Definitely going to keep buying this for her. Anything to get her to eat.

This food was soupy. I double checked the box to make sure I had mixed it correctly. Yep, I had. I added more food and it was still soupy. My dog did not appreciate this one. He would not eat it. The spinach smell was a bit strong. I had to return the box and trade it for Force. He likes Force.

I'm in the process of transitioning my puppy to Thrive and he is loving it. I'm very impressed with The Honest Kitchen's products. The quality shows. I'm sure i'll be purchasing food from them for years to come.

Written by Robin | 12/16/14

My dogs loved the sample but would not go near this stuff after I bought the 4-lb box. I tried all water to food ratios, but they hated it. Definitely recommend trying the samples for a few feedings before committing to paying over $ 40 a box. Thumbs down.
