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

Tried this food and my dog loved it! I was delighted because my dog has allergies and can't eat grain or poultry. Now I could alternate between Zeal and Love. Unfortunately they are not offering Zeal in a 2lb box! My 12 lb. dog takes a while to go through the 2lb. box and 4 lbs is too much, particularly a new food. I will have to continue to alternate with another brand of dog food. So HK, 5 stars for the food, 1 star for the packaging = 3 star rating..... :(

To my way of thinking someone who wants 4 lbs can order two, 2 lb. boxes. Those of us who only need the 2lb. box are stuck!! I spoke to Customer Service but they said they had to see how many calls they got for the 2lb. box. If anyone else wishes they could buy a 2lb. box of Zeal, let HK Customer Service know at 866-437-9729.

I have a five year old English Bulldog and a four year old Australian Labradoodle. My Bully suffers from many different allergies, so we are hoping that this food will help relieve these allergies. I got samples today in the mail of Zeal and my babies literally went crazy for the food!!! Both of my babies licked their bowls clean and then went back to make sure they left nothing behind! I am loving the ingredients and the fact that it is human grade and I can pronounce all the ingredients in the food and I know what they are. Also, I love that the food is real as does my husband. You can tell it's real food whereas with kibble you cannot. So far my babies give this food a 10! Can't wait to see how it does with my baby girl's allergies.

Got this food my dog who has colitis and is very sensitive. She loves it and after a few weeks she has adjusted perfectly. Couldn't be happier

Both my dogs have allergies that affect them in different ways. We started giving them Zeal and it has helped with their itchy skin, watery eyes and hard to clean up after stools. Plus the dogs both LOVE it.

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.

Written by Stephanie | 8/12/15

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. :-)
