our little lowchen (16 lbs) eats a locally made raw meat diet, supplemented with honest kitchen's preference. his breeder told me about it. i really like the idea of a balanced, varied recipe i can add to his meat, with some of the nutrients he would get from the bunny's stomach contents (to be blunt). i appreciate someone else going to the trouble to gather and prepare all this good stuff for us! i tweak his diet further with superfoods. but i know i have a baseline of good consistent nutrition going into my lil dude, especially if i get a little lazy....mac enjoys his food most heartily. he gets 1/8 lb meat mixed with 1/8 cups rehydrated preference for one of his twice daily meals, and a straight 1/4 lb meat (with a tad of whatever i have that we are eating - chopped broccoli, collards, etc) as his other daily meal. this regimen works very well...proportions are perfect for his taste. i tried more preference but he was not as enthusiastic. if i forget to thaw out his meat, i can resort to one of hk's other meals, which he snaps up quite happily.

Baxter is a 4+ year Peekapoo. He has been eating Preference mixed with raw for 6 months. I have always had a hard time, no matter what, keeping him at an ideal weight. He weighed 22 lbs his whole adult life. Well, I found the raw diet food I was feeding him had an inaccurate calorie count disclosed and searched for something new. I'm so glad I found Honest Kitchen Preference. It's perfect for him and after just 6 months, Baxter lost 2 lbs and is happy, beautiful and healthy.

Clyde the "Lucky Labrador" loves Preference! His coat is shiny, his ears are clearing up and we are now 12 weeks without a seizure and lowering his Phenobarbital in hopes the new food will keep him seizure free!
