I’ve been feeding Honest Kitchen Embark to my 4 Jack Russells for awhile. I try to switch up the variety but the other 2 5 star varieties are just too expensive. I use Annamaet grain free kibble when we’re away from home. It’s also 5 stars. Do you think the kibble is as nutritious as the dehydrated food? It would be easier to feed & less expensive. Or am I splitting hairs? Thanks for any input.
I don’t think that in general kibble is just as nutritious as most dehydrated foods. Annament is a very good one though. That being said, I know that Honest Kitchen is very expensive. I feed my dogs a base kibble and add something to it every meal. They get a few tablespoons of canned with it in the morning. In the afternoon, I rotate between eggs, beef heart, dehydrated, frozen raw patties, and sardines in their kibble. I also feed the See Spot Live Longer dinner mix with lightly cooked burger once a week. So, I guess what I am saying is if you go ahead with the kibble, you can always bump up the nutrition with toppers! From what I’m learning, variety is very healthy for our dogs.
Thanks! That’s the kind of stuff I was looking for. Great ideas…my pups thank you 🙂
I agree with C4C. There are definitely things you can add to a diet of kibble, not the least of which are fresh, whole food ingredients! This is a great download from Steve Brown (it costs $2.95 and is worth every penny). It’ll give you some great ways to bump up a diet of kibble with whole foods and keep your pups nutritional balance on track. http://www.seespotlivelonger.com/home/sll/page_41/see_spot_live_longer_the_abc_way___electronic_down.html
If you’re a Costco member, check out Nature’s Domain Turkey and Pea Stew canned food there. For about a dollar a can, you can top kibble with a five start canned food.
Thank you DF! I’ll download right now.
