Anyone heard of/used them before?

Stumbled on them by accident, and I'm really curious about them... they actually have a fish formula that ISN'T stupidly low in fat! shock And a bison option!

And all of them seem to have low overall cal/phos, which is really nice, seeing as most all of the THK's lines are higher than I would like for Ridley (who is eating about 80% raw now anyway, so its not AS big of a concern, but if I can get it lower that'd make me happy).

Just curious if anyone's used it before!

ETA- holy cow the "Optimum" salmon one is 600 cals/cup... that's amazing. 2 cups would meet Mulder's total calorie intake for day... that's the least I've ever seen recommended in a dehydrated food!

Never used this before seen it on some dog food shop sites.. Looks good.. Pricey though. Coarse honest kitchen or ziwipeak are pricey too..

Maybe give it a try.

Stores near me doesn't have much in options for kibble or dehydrated.

Looks good ingredient wise.. I might get small thing of salmon to try someday in future would be good for camping or traveling.

Saya is small so she wouldn't eat much.

We ended up with a sample of it years ago to try out on the cats. Both cats said no. laugh out loud But that's no surprise with these two...

I've looked into a few time since then, but it's way out of my price range...even for very occasional use.

Looks about 2-3x pricier per pound than what I pay for raw now, even at the bulk order price. But it looks like really awesome stuff. If you don't mind the price, give it a go. way to go

Its pretty pricey... but honestly, not too much more than the Honest Kitchen, considering its 100 calories more per cup.

The last THK I bought was Embark... which is about $2.15/lb. The salmon one of this would be $2.61/lb, and is nearly 110 more calories a cup. Plus fish/better cal/phos ratio.

Meh, yeah, still kinda pricey. Might be worth it to try a 2lb bag and see if its worth the cost thinking

I looked into it when I was looking for a low carb food, it looked good and I liked the high calories, compared to Honest Kitchen it seems a good option. I ended up not using it IIRC because we had to take Bianca off raw.
