We 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!A Miracle in Every Box Continue reading “The Honest Kitchen hits the sweet spot between the convenience of kibble and the healthiness of raw” »

Joint supplements put a spring in their step!

This time of year, whenever there’s a break in the weather and a break in our schedules, most of us want to head outdoors to enjoy the first taste of spring with our dogs. However, joint pain can greatly reduce their enjoyment. In fact, one in four dogs suffer from it. Although it’s most common in larger breeds and older dogs, joint pain can afflict any age or breed of dog, and cats as well. The signs can be subtle…your dog may be slow and stiff when getting up or have trouble going up and down stairs. Cats may not be able to jump up onto their high places anymore, or may seem stiff when moving. Continue reading “Joint supplements put a spring in their step!” »
