  • The Honest Kitchen hits the sweet spot between the convenience of kibble and the healthiness of raw

    THKWe all want to feed our fur babies the best food  we can, but we want it to be convenient, too, and sometimes that’s a struggle. The Honest Kitchen has changed the equation, however, with complete diets made of fresh whole foods that haven’t been cooked and processed beyond recognition. Instead of extrusion, the nutrient-destroying process for making dry dog food, all the meats, produce, seeds  and other ingredients (organic whenever possible) have been very gently dehydrated to retain most of their original taste, color, aroma and health benefits, with the majority of the enzymes and antioxidants still intact, much like raw food. And it’s easy to prepare. Just add warm water, wait 5 minutes and serve up a delicious meal!

    Fromm Family dog and cat food

    Old fashioned goodness: Five generations of making premium pet food

    fromm-logoSince 1904, the Fromm family has maintained a tradition of quiet innovation. In 1948, they introduced the first modern kibble made with natural ingredients, and they continue to build and improve on that expertise. The recipes made in their own Wisconsin plant all have high inclusions of fresh human-grade meats, eggs, vegetables and fruit, and every formula contains a dollop of real Wisconsin cheese!

    four-starTheir 4-Star line of cat and dog foods feature imaginative pairings of ingredients and flavors, and are designed for easy rotation without needing a transition period. Your dog can eat Beef Frittata for breakfast and Lamb & Lentils for dinner! Cats can have Game Bird at one meal and Surf & Turf the next (with wild Pacific salmon). Some recipes contain ancestral grains like oats, barley and millet. Others are grain-free.

    Food safety is a vital part of the company’s mission, and they pay close attention to the tiniest details. Products are tested in-house and by an independent laboratory before any batch is released. This exceptional care results in easier digestion, fewer allergic reactions and increased energy for dogs and cats eating their foods.

    grain-free-surf-turfOne of the only family-owned pet food companies still standing today, Fromm’s puts their heart and soul into crafting the best foods they possibly can. We are proud and delighted to welcome them to All The Best!

    Northwest Naturals: A Raw Food Adventure! Part 5

    diana_blog_final_smWell, our many weeks of feeding the Northwest Naturals raw and freeze-dried foods have really helped Barkley grow into a big, beautiful 8 ½ month old pup.  His coat is beautiful, and he is happy and healthy. He’s filled with boundless energy, which he spends all day on playing with his puppy friends, and showing all his favorite people how much he loves them.

    We have loved sharing his progress with you as we have all watched him grow up! He’s now well over 80 lbs, and will continue to grow as I feed him a healthy, raw and freeze-dried diet, including Northwest Naturals. As he loses the rest of his puppy fur, we’ll happily anticipate his smooth, thick adult hair, and watch as he fills out and grows into those goofy ears and paws.

    We hope you will come by the Mercer Island store for a visit, and to see for yourself how large and stunning Barkley has become, and how he will continue to grow–and maybe pick up a sample of Northwest Naturals for your dog to try!

    Best wishes,
    Barkley and Diana

    Does your dog eat grass? Maybe he needs enzymes!

    grassNo one knows definitively WHY dogs will eat grass from time to time, but it could be an instinctual behavior caused by certain nutrients your dog is missing. When enzymes are added to meals, more nutrients from the food itself are absorbed into the body and the grass eating usually stops. As a matter of fact, the “unlocking” power of enzymes allows all food and supplements to be better assimilated. For fat supplements especially, enzymes provide a doubling effect, increasing effectiveness by breaking down the large molecules into smaller parts that the digestive system can uptake.

    Enzymes_group-smallSince 1990, All The Best Pet Care has been producing the finest digestive enzyme blends for pets found anywhere. Our proprietary formulations are targeted, concentrated powders that begin working in the stomach, just like enzymes in raw food. They require only a small dosage that is easy to mix into moist food or put into a capsule for pilling. Enzymes should be given any time cooked or processed food is served to replace the natural food enzymes destroyed by heat.

    As animals age their ability to produce their own bodily enzymes declines, and disease sets in. We have seen almost miraculous transformations after enzyme supplementation begins, including relief from itchiness, allergies, flea infestation, weepy eyes and ears, dry flaking skin, rashes, hair loss and hot spots. By improving nutrient absorption, the immune system has the tools it needs to heal itself.

    Try one of our three formulas:

    Enzymes Plus, our most popular formula, contains a complete spectrum of digestive enzymes plus kelp extract, bioflavinoids, and two natural forms of Vitamin C, rose hips and acerola. The kelp provides the trace minerals that are the “sparkplugs” for many biological processes, and Vitamin C contributes vital immune support.

    Good Digestion combines digestive enzymes with probiotic cultures, fructooliosaccharides (FOS), and alfalfa, barley and wheat grass to address the very common problem in dogs and cats of poor digestion, gas and loose stools, whether they’re the result of antibiotic therapy, poor diet, or inherited digestive weakness. Good Digestion repopulates the intestinal tract with beneficial bacteria, which in turn help to break down and assimilate the nutrients in food. Good Digestion is a must after a course of antibiotic treatment.

    Enzymes pH contains not only digestive enzymes, but also cranberry extract and two natural urinary acidifiers, DL-methionine (an amino acid found in meat and dairy products) and sodium ascorbate (a form of Vitamin C.) These ingredients help alleviate urinary blockages that are rampant in cats. Cranberry prevents any bacteria in the urinary tract from adhering to cell walls and causing infection. An acidic urine causes excess minerals excreted through the kidneys to remain in solution instead of forming struvite crystals that irritate and clog delicate urethral tissue. Although Enzymes pH is intended primarily for cats, it can be useful for dogs with struvite crystals. Check with your vet.
