Pet Products Review: Verve Dehydrated, Raw Organic Dog Food
The Honest Kitchen Verve Dehydrated Dog Food, at Only Natural Pet Store, ideal for adult maintenance for dogs who do well with some grain in their diets.
The second time I started with 1/4 cup per day, given with the morning meal. She tolerated that amount, and after 4 days when both of my dogs were doing fine I gave 1/4 cup with each meal, which she also tolerated. I gave it a week on 1/4 cup twice a day, then tried 1/2 cup with the morning meal and 1/4 cup with the evening meal. Again on the second day of this regimen, I woke up and both dogs had explosive diarrhea. Concerned for her health, I stopped feeding the Verve and will never give it to her again. She lost the 5# we were seeking and then some while she was sick, and it made me realize that I'd much rather have a healthy dog a few pounds over her recommended weight than a sick dog because I am pushing diet food. I'm just glad she is not a senior dog (which this food is also labeled for) becaue I'm sure she would not have bounced back in a few days had she not started the ordeal young and healthy.
The diet that started it all, the original dehydrated raw dog food. Verve is made with beef and organic grains. This diet is an excellent option for those who want a more wholesome and less processed meal for their pets. Like all our recipes, Verve is 100% human grade dog food."

Verve is ideal for dogs who do better without poultry. I mentioned earlier in our interview with The Honest Kitchen that I was going to try out their dehydrated dog food for Lilly and Red. We ordered our first box of 10 lbs. of ‘Verve’ on March 31st. We ordered online from the shop of the producers and food makers, The Honest Kitchen, located in San Diego, CA. With our discount coupon code we paid $68.19 (including $10 for shipping). The ordering process was easy and the food arrived exactly 5 days later.I opened the bag and the first thing I realized was the incredible good smell of the dog food. It smells and looks like instant soup to me. You can literally see the chopped little pieces of veggies, fruits and herbs. It’s the same experience you have after opening a bag of coffee (ahhhh, I love coffee!). Verve is made with USDA hormone-free beef and organic rye. Like all of The Honest Kitchen’s diets, it’s 100% human-grade, made in the USA, and does not contain corn, soy, rice, beet pulp or wheat. Here is the list of ingredients: dehydrated beef, organic oats, organic rye, organic flaxseed, potatoes, carrots, organic alfalfa, eggs, apples, parsley, cranberries, spinach, chicory, rosemary, tricalcium phosphate, choline chloride, zinc amino acid chelate, vitamin D3 supplement, vitamin E supplement, potassium iodide, potassium chloride, iron amino acid chelate, copper amino acid chelate.
