Treating Obesity: The Silent Killer

Unlike humans, dogs and cats have a propensity to pack on pounds virtually overnight. Combine the wrong food with overfeeding PLUS a low exercise regimen and you'll have an overweight pet in no time flat. A lot of people get dogs as part of a commitment to their own health, pledging hours of the next decade (at least!) to walking their dog up to four times a day. While four times a day is certainly not the norm, two long walks a day should really help with jump starting weight loss.

One Quick Fix: Gas!

The Honest Kitchen ~ Small 2016 Price Increase on Some Products

From the founder of The Honest Kitchen: "We pride ourselves on obtaining the best ingredients for our products and work hard to ensure that price increases on our products remain minimal. Unfortunately several key ingredients have risen this year and we’re unable to absorb all of the additional expenses that have been incurred. In efforts to be transparent with our customers, below are some of the reasons behind our price increases. Most notably, chicken, turkey and egg prices have escalated, due in part of the effects (and ongoing threat) of avian influenza that have affected flocks across the country. We’ve also seen a considerable increase in the cost of some of our fish treats due to increased price of raw materials, a surge in Icelandic wages and other import expenses.

Don't Forget About Calcium

One of the most common mistakes that people make when feeding a home-cooked diet is the failure to add calcium. You must add calcium when you feed a diet that does not include bones. Adult dogs need around 800 to 1,000 mg of calcium per pound of food fed. They also require the calcium to be supplied in a proper proportion to phosphorus.

What is Dehydrated Dog & Cat Food?

The Honest Kitchen helps explain what is dehydrated pet food. It is great to mix with meat or use as a substitute for canned diets using fresh, human-grade ingredients.
