Klout Perk: Science Diet Grain Free Food for Dogs, plus More #WinwithHills

IMG_20140312_160900

Klout not only rewards their members but also their pets. Our mutt received a great perk package filled with lots of goodies, courtesy of Science Diet. The kit was packed with a bag of the Adult Grain Free dry dog food, a dog rope toy shaped like a frisbee, and a collar charm that lit up. It’s like Science Diet and Klout knew our dog’s birthday was in March!!

I can say the Grain Free food was welcomed by our pup and she made sure to cherry pick the Science Diet food out of her bowl first, before eating the “with grain” feed we formerly had. I figured it was good exercise as it took her a good hour to nose her food to get to the Science Diet kibble. The Grain free formula is packed with many benefits so it goes beyond our dog just enjoying the meal:

  • Prebiotics are added and this aids with nutrient absorption and digestive health. The source listed is beet pulp, which also adds fiber.
  • Owners have reported a radiant and lustrous skin & coat on their dogs courtesy of the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Flax seed is the source listed on the package.
  • The protein listed is high quality chicken, which also supports a healthy heart. You also have cranberry, plus vitamins E and C for immune system support.
  • The Grain-free feed is all natural ingredients with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives

Swaggable: The Honest Kitchen FORCE Dehydrated Dog Food

DSCN4021

Our mutt is the type of dog that finds the cheapest toys the most fun to play with but when it comes to food, she is offended by the oddest of things. Actually gives me that face questioning if I am serious about her eating something she is particularly not fond of (at that second) and then comes the waiting game. I try to wait until she eats it and she waits until something else (better) is served. I have seen this dog eat a Flaming Hot Cheeto (extra hot edition), so she does not convince me she has some kind of “refined” palette after she ate that! I also find her liking raw carrots one day and not the next, so this is her plan to drive me crazy. I don’t appreciate how she acted like they were radiated and left me a exploded carrot by her dish as a sign of protest!

In comes Force, a dehydrated whole foods product by The Honest Kitchen. First thing that catches me eye, it states “Human Grade” on the package. Okay, I’m not even sure everything I eat is such a grade so this definitely is the dog one upping me! The flavor sounds more like a dish you order, Free-Range Chicken with Vegetables and Fruit (grain-free). Makes my all-beef hot dog I had for dinner not so special now, even though I opted for spicy brown mustard 🙂 You have other details like a Guaranteed Analysis disclosure, which let’s you know the crude protein, fat, fiber to even caloric count. The food is made in an FDA inspected facility! So, this is all good but does the Cheeto Bandit approve?

Simple Preparation:
I added Organic Low-Sodium beef broth I had left over from making stuffing to the dehydrated food. Think instant oatmeal for dogs when preparing this dish for your pet. The food actually smells like chicken and contains potatoes, celery, sweet potato, apples, organic alfalfa to even organic flax seed and herbs like basil and rosemary. You mix the package with 1/3 of a cup of warm water (foo-foo broth in my case), wait about 5 minutes and serve. The food absorbs the liquid and you do not even need to stir, so no need to walk in with the “dog’s spoon” that must be put in the dishwasher ASAP.

Mutt Approved:
I did the above and served it. The pooch inspected and sniffed and then wagged. If she wags while eating and looks back but continues eating, that means it’s a “Yay”. If she sniffs, looks back and then comes over and looks at your hands to see if you got anything else to offer the Dog Goddess, it’s a “Nay”. The goddess approved and I did not get my paws checked for other offerings. She ate it all and cleaned her bowl better than my dishwasher cleans that last glass in the corner!

I thought the idea of making my own wet food for my dog would be……well, icky but this is not only a Honest Kitchen product but a clean one. It’s simple and easier than making a cup of soup in the microwave, and that means no microwave is needed and no mixing required. She loved it and the ingredients are remarkable. Force loves their furry consumers more than some companies like us humans! You can also opt to serve the product alone or as a topper for their kibble, so you can skip on adding any liquid. I also like that 10 pounds of Force food makes 40 pounds of fresh food! Force products are also GMO free, Gluten free and produced in the USA by a family owned and operated business.
