Does Honest Kitchen contain raw meats? I'm confused as to whether the meats are raw or cooked? Also, any thoughts on meats I could add?
I have a ten month old cocker spaniel that I suspect has some allergies-not sure what specifically but I thought a grain free food would be a good place to start. I am presently feeding him Natural Balance fish and sweet potato dry kibble-it was suggested after I tried giving him Orijen for a couple of weeks -but he had bloody stools( to much protein maybe) but he seemed to like it-he does not seem to like the Natural Balance I am feeding him now. My question is-does Honest kitchen contain raw meats? I am confused as to whether the meats are raw or cooked? Or partially cooked? I tried introducing Natures Variety raw chicken nuggets to my dog and he refused to go near his bowl so I don't think raw meat is for him-I know you can add your own meat with Preference-any thoughts on what meat I should add? I have not determined if he has an allergy to a specific meat. I just want to find a nutritionally sound food for him that he enjoys more....HELP!!!...I don't want to keep switching his food - I am not sure if I am making him finicky at this point. I know I don't feel like he is getting everything he needs from a dry processed kibble.
Thanks for any advice you can give me-so again does Honest Kitchen have raw meats-if so what meat can you suggest adding to preference that is the least allergenic?
There is a ton of information on the Honest Kitchen page, including an extensive q & a section. All of your questions about HK are addressed on these pages.
I will say that if you think your dog has sensitivity to a specific food source OR if you are trying to figure out if they are sensitive to a meat or other food, then I would not start the dog on Honest Kitchen. It has so many ingredients that it’s not a good starting place for a food sensitivity. I would do an allergy elimination diet. With this diet you feed only one or two ingredients to see how your dog responds. I had to do this to one of my own dogs and I started with fresh rabbit, nothing else. You want to choose a protein source that your dog has not eaten before. Most dogs have eaten chicken, beef and lamb… You could try pork, rabbit, bison, etc…
I would direct you to the search function in the upper right corner of the website for any additional questions you may have. If you type in your key words it will guide you to articles, Q & A’s and posts on our forum. There is a lot of information on our website about this, much more than I can ever type.
This type of issue takes time to work out, usually 2 to 3 months. It’s not something you’ll solve in a week or two.
I hope this helps.
