I have fed my dogs raw food for over 10 yrs., but was looking for a convenient dehydrated food for travel, and unexpected power outages. So I requested some Honest Kitchen samples. My dogs were very excited as soon as I mixed the food, whining and pawing me to eat it. Zeal was the favorite flavor for my girls. I am very impressed with the human grade food and the care that goes into each box.

Zeal, recently switched to Zeal, after months of research. My dogs are doing well,
on Zeal and I also have purchased Thrive to move around. We are so glad to be
off of kibble. thanks HK for your products, now don't change a thing.

My Dexter is a 3 1/2 year old German Shepard/Shibou Inu mix. Crazy combination, right? Well, my friend gave us some of the Zeal to try, since he's such a food snob (likes something for about 2 months, then will stop eating until I change foods!) And he absolutely loved it! So now, instead of having to change his diet every few months, I just mix a bit of this in, and he loves it!

Zeal was the other type of food I had my dog try since I hardly feed her fish and I wanted her to have more variety in her diet. It was a great addition my dog loved and I love it even more with all the nutritious ingredients included! Thank you!

Although probably the "stinkiest" of the flavors offered, this is Annie's FAVORITE! (maybe because it's so stinky, you know how dogs are). With her dental issues (not having any teeth), having the dehydrated foods is super helpful, making sure she's getting the nutrition she needs. And for an old gal, when she smells us making Zeal for her, she gets so excited! Watching her, you'd think she was a puppy again.

Fantastic foo! We hope that this company will never sell out to the large pet food companies in the future. Its very difficult to find excellent quality food such as Honest kitchen. Loyal customer provided you do not sell out to a larger pet food company in the future. Thank you again!

Zeal is the other favorite of my pups, it's a high protein version that they absolutely love.

I tried all of the grain free flavors and this by far was the favorite of both dogs. My picky eater licked it right off the spoon. I new it was going to be a hit!

My dog Sam was diagnosed with IBD 1 year ago and it has been a struggle ever since to maintain his health. He was on a home cooked diet of duck and then we tried rabbit ( as the single source protein) until he had a setback 3 weeks ago. My vet than suggested using fish as the single source protein. I was so pleased to find Zeal. It has been 2 weeks since I started feeding him Zeal and have had great results. The food seems to make Sam feel full and he does not seem to be constantly hungry. Sam's stool has significantly less mucus and blood which is a great improvement. I strongly recommend this product for dogs with IBD. I know that trying to find the right combination of food, herbs and prescription medications is an exercise in trail and error. I know how frustrating this journey can be when you see your pet not feeling well. This food has gotten me one step closer to finding the proper balance for my dog and hope it works as well for your dog..

We are fairly new to Honest Kitchen, and decided to try out Zeal after our pup finished his first box of Embark. I was hoping that the fish would her our Shih Tzu's yeast issue in his ears, but it seems to have worsened it. The Embark seems to help though, and we will try the duck version once it is released.

The smell is definitely a little... undesirable, too. I suppose it is to be expected with fish though!

after just a few weeks on this food, my pooch is much more active and her summer allergies seem to have vanished.
