Our Louie was given to us by a family member who could no longer take care of him. He was also our first dog! We noticed that when we fed him other leading brands of dog food he became very ill. At one point he was hospitalized for about 3 days and fearing that he would not make it. Our doctor recommended Verve from The Honest Kitchen. Louie was always a very picky eater but he seemed to love Verve. To add a little variety I sometimes add boiled chicken, or fish but he will eat it alone to because he really likes the taste. The Honest Kitchen dog food truly saved my dogs life. He is now getting the necessary nutrients to be a healthy, happy dog!
