Six Ways to Feed Our Dehydrated Foods

Six Ways to Feed Our Dehydrated Foods

A is for All Alone

Feed Honest Kitchen food by itself as a complete meal. Just add water and it’s ready to go!

B is for Base–mix

Use as a base for your own home-prepared ingredients. Lots of people love to make their pets’ food. Honest Kitchen's dehydrated recipes and base mixes are an excellent starting point (with balanced calcium: phosphorus ratios) that you can mix with your own meat and other goodies. (Here are some of our suggestions!)

C is for Complementary

Mix with kibble as a convenient, healthy whole food topping that provides more phytonutrients than cooked diets. Because our foods are gently dehydrated, they retain much more of the natural nutrition that conventional pet food production methods. If you aren’t ready to make the switch to 100% fresh or dehydrated food, try our recipes as toppers, so your pet can still enjoy some of the benefits of a whole food diet!

D is for Defrosting error

Use as a stand-in when you forget to thaw your raw! Some of our customers feed raw food most of the time. But sometimes, schedules can be disrupted or plain old absent-mindedness can set in. Our foods are great to keep on hand as a stand-in for just such occasions!

E is for Emergencies

Dehydrated foods are compact to store – you can keep our products in your emergency preparedness kit for up to 12 months and they’ll be easy to take with if you ever have to leave home in a hurry.

F is for Fun outdoors

Take on your travels, backpacking, and camping – our foods are lightweight and quick & easy to prepare for a tasty meal on the road. Each dry-measured cup of our food makes a whole pound of fresh food when rehydrated. Would you like some help, deciding which food to choose or how to prepare it for your individual pet?
