So, let me ask all you HK feeders. Can EVO be fed as a protein source or mixer for this food?

Aussie - I see you feed both. What HK formula do you feed with the EVO?

Verve is what I feed. I mainly feed it because if I did not get their home cooked done that way they are getting some vegs in their diet as well. I do not trust just one source for their feeding needs any more then I would eat just one thing. My dogs do get a variety of foods. so I would never feed HK alone guess that is why my dogs are not loosing weight or looking around for more because they are hungry.

"Vitamins and minerals

Each of our foods contains the following, 100% human food grade, vitamin-mineral premix: tricalcium phosphate, choline chloride, zinc amino acid chelate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin E supplement, potassium chloride, iron amino acid chelate, copper amino acid chelate."

Sorry, no menadione!

Their website really is giving you some trouble. It is at the bottom of the feeding guidelines page. http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/prod...uidlines.shtml

I'll keep feeding HK thanks PETA, PETA, whatever. My dog is thriving on this food and it is top quality. I pay $35 for 4 lbs which makes 17 lbs.................Money isn't a big deal when it comes to my boy's health

How can a pet food manufacterer support PETA who thinks we shouldn't keep animals as pets? I mean, that would put them out of business wouldn't it?

Sorry, I like to see my ingredients listed under each formula. One shouldn't have to dig around a website to find a separate section for the vitamins and minerals

Geez guys! If we picked every food apart out their on the market I am sure their is something we would find wrong with them all....even raw! Whether it be an ingredient or who they support. Seriously, If I listened to everything I read on these food threads, It's enough to make me crazy I mean I stopped feeding Timberwolf because of everyone who said that everytime they have asked a question or who and where manufactures their food they would never get answers I even emailed a couple of questions to TW and got no reply. I am very happy with HK and I honestly don't pay any attention to PETA Sorry guys, you know I love you all but I just had to get that off my chest!

I guess that rules out all of Natura Pet's foods!

http://www.innovapet.com/products/default.asp?id=1

Or how's this for EVO, where they don't even list the "minerals": http://www.evopet.com/products/default.asp?id=1485


Give me a break. Like Red_ACD has said, some people are just too picky about these things. Poor web design doesn't say anything about the food.

On Natura's website... try clicking on the ingredients- it will give a detailed list of the vitamins and minerals Not so slick now, are we?

I don't feed Natura foods, anyway. Why do you compare everything to Natura?

Why do you get so defensive about food, Herchel? I never said anything rude to you, and you are being a smart ass to me.
