    Does anyone feed their shelties The Honest Kitchen Diet dehydrated food? Wesley loves the beef flavor. Our vet said it was a high grade food. On recent reviews the chicken and turkey recipes have got a few bad reviews. The reviews for the beef flavor is mostly five starts on Amazon. Wesley can't eat chicken as it makes him sick (throws up). I am just wondering if anyone has used The Honest Kitchen Diet and what they thought about it. And does anyone use Stella and Chewy dehydrated food?

    I am trying to transition my pup to Orijen (he's on a pretty low quality food from the breeder) but my sister has a French Bulldog puppy who she began feeding Stella and Chewy. He had a couple puppy parasites, so the medicines made him a little nauseous. He then had a bad association with the food he was eating at the time and now all he'll eat is the Stella and Chewy. I know he can't have chicken either and he seems to be doing great on whichever formula they have that's chicken-free :)

    I haven't had any experience with The Honest Kitchen though

    While I don't have any experience with Honest Kitchen, I would research the threads on this forum about commercial food and heart disease (DCM). I recently found out Dog Food Advisor which rates food, is run by a DENTIST. I'm sure his intentions are good but he's not a vet nutritionist. A lot of marketing of dog food goes to what will sound good to the owner - oh, if this food has blueberries it must be great & healthy.... - not necessarily true. It's been a hot topic of discussion here and at my vet's.....

    Spot on - Sharon :yes:

    The tendency is the same with many owners
    - "I want to switch to a better food than what the breeder gave my puppy"
    - "does not the puppy thrive??"
    - "yes, absolutely fine - but I think it is a bad food" :confused2:

    Layla, our first, was brought home on Eukanuba (when grandpa is the Eukanuba Champion, you eat Eukanuba :lol:). After a short while, she refused it and, when encouraged to eat it, she threw it up. We've been through several foods, but we've settled on Stella and Chewey. There's a nice variety of raw-coated kibble, and all of ours will eat it (except Bitsy gets soft canned and anything else she wants).
