Zeal Dog Food

The Honest Kitchen Zeal dog food is a grain-free and gluten-free recipe made with wild, line-caught white fish and produce like sweet potatoes, pumpkin and parsley. Zeal dehydrated dog food is a natural human grade food that’s created especially for adult dogs with certain dietary restrictions. It is higher in protein and low in fat and carbohydrates. Zeal grain-free dog food is especially suited for pups who do better without certain pet food ingredients such as gluten, poultry, beef, flax and white potatoes.

Please note: We are in the process of switching out haddock and replacing it with cod. The 4 lb boxes are currently shipping with the new cod recipe while the 10 lb boxes are still shipping with haddock.

The Honest Kitchen Zeal is good for dogs who:
♥ Can’t have grains or gluten
♥ Need a low carb, low fat diet
♥ Can’t tolerate common proteins like poultry or beef

My dogs love this food. And I love that there is a fish option beyond kibble or buying sardines. This is probably our favorite THK food.

My dogs loved this recipe. Whenever I make fish at home, they always get a taste & love it. So having a bowl with it for dinner was great for them. I'm definitely going to re-order it.

My dog Violet has had food allergies all her life. Finding the honest kitchen has been such a joy for Violet and I. She isn't allergic to anything in the food and has since stop itching! Thank you honest kitchen

I have been cooking cod and vegetables for my French Bulldog for two years due to dietary restrictions. Imagine my joy at discovering Zeal! He loves it! Thank you, Honest Kitchen.

My dog is a 12-year-old lab. She's had skin allergies for almost all her life, gone through multiple urinary (kidney) infections (which her vet told me to stay on medication for the rest of life!!! I didn't like that, so I stopped the medicine after a month), and sensitive stomach issues. It's a Labrador - they eat everything and anything, so of course she LOVES the food. I always watch and try to give her only the best that's out there. This one is GREAT. I LOVE seeing her healthy pee and poop every day, and her coat seems to be shiner too. Highly recommended!!! Oh, yes - the suggested amount of water made it soupy, so I pour a little less than suggested. :)

my doggies love fish! What can i say... i gave this a try. They ate it all up! Do I have to say more? ;)

Written by Rhonda | 7/7/15

PROS: Sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes, and grain free. Yay! Plus, Zeal has all of the nutritional value and quality we know and trust from THK, including haddock rather than cheaper or high-mercury fish options. So much better than other dog food choices!

CONS: Using the recommended amount of water, the final result is quite soupy, leading us to cut back on water. I always wonder if the food is able to fully hydrate this way, but don't want to add more of the mix and over-feed either.

NEUTRAL: There is a pretty strong fish smell... but it's fish... it's suppose to smell that way. :-)

One of my dogs has a sensitive tummy so I selected 2 Honest Kitchen products to try, this being one of them. While the Duck based product worked well I can't say the same about this fish product. After adding water to rehydrate, there was near zero absorption. The dry mix mostly remained so in a bowl of colored water. The duck product rehydrates well so I had a similar expectation here. The fish smell was horrible & I decided this food wasn't even fit to give to feed - obviously something wrong. I think I had read Honest Kitchen was changing the formula. Perhaps they knew they were selling a flawed product. Very disappointed. I re-ordered the duck but won't try this fish product again. Definitely do not recommend.

My boy gives this product more then 5 paws! He absolutely LOVES the zeal samples from honest kitchen and comes running once I add the water to hydrate!
