Q. How do the Verve and Keen formulas compare in terms of Nutritional Analysis? Do you think it is wise to vary the Honest Kitchen formula I serve to my dogs?
Hi Cindy,

A friend recently recommended the Leerburg website to me as a #1 resource for getting started on raw feeding. I must say I have been more than impressed by the plethora of information available on your website. Thank you!

I switched both of my senior dogs (American Pointer & GSD) off of a prescription kibble diet to a raw diet supplemented with the Honest Kitchen Verve formula as recommended here. They are both doing VERY WELL and LOVE the Verve formula as much as their raw meats and bones! I am ready to buy a second box of the Honest Kitchen and for variety sake (and moving further away from grain) was considering trying a second formula, possibly the Keen.
Other formula suggestions are welcome.

Questions:
How do the Verve and Keen formulas compare in terms of Nutritional Analysis? Do you think it is wise to vary the Honest Kitchen formula I serve to my dogs?

Also, after seeing my senior dogs respond so well to their raw/Honest Kitchen diet I decided to switch my adult cats off of their prescription kibble too. They weren't sure about the Prowl at first, but I tried adding a little tuna water and now they love it with their chicken necks etc!

Thanks,
Stephanie

A. I'd rotate the formulas for variety. Keen is 21% protein, 14.5% fat, 4.5% fiber and 8.5% moisture. Verve is the lowest fat product, but unless your dogs are on a restricted fat diet, it should not be an issue.

I'm glad your dogs and cats made the switch!

If you love your dog, you need to read this book! It will change the way you view the health of your pet. I can tell you this from experience. Feeding commercial dog food since 1950's, I became more and more concerned about exactly what I was forcing my dogs to live on. When I did a little research, I became very critical of commercial dog food companies.
