This is perhaps one of the most honest reviews we’ve done. Our reviewers haven’t been swayed by fancy packaging, brand name or other people’s opinions. They’ve given us their straightforward views says Glynda Alves
For this review, we get three dogs to try out Kennel Kitchen dog food along with two cats who use their keen sense of taste to help us out. The wet dog food comes according to the size of your dog and the packaging is very secure and impressive.
A bowl of Kennel Kitchen home style dog meal contains freshly sourced chicken, lamb, eggs, peas, sweet potatoes, carrots, fish oil, rice, natural sources of calcium and fat. We tried the Lamb & Vegetables (for large breeds) and the Chicken & Vegetable (for small breeds). The food on the cover looks nothing like what I served in the dog dish. It’s not as colourful and seems to be heavy on rice, but I could also clearly see the peas and chunks of meat. I also saw two dogs going crazy with the smell! The third could not be bothered.
Two of the three dogs loved the food and swiped it. The other dog, she’s a bit of a food critic, sniffed at it, tried it and decided she wanted none of it. One of the cats, who is usually a finicky eater, also enjoyed the wet meal. The other stuck to his usual. So, three out of five of our furry reviewers seemed to enjoy the food.
As a pet owner, I was also happy to note that the food contains no preservatives or additives. However, they also say that they “keep in mind the nutritional value of the food a dog would garner on his own in the wild.” Honestly, this put me off. Domestic dogs in the wild (a.k.a. the streets) eat from dustbins.
Overall, Kitchen Kennel might work out a little pricey if you have more than one pet. Also, considering that two of our reviewers didn’t like the food, it would be best to buy a few packets first to see whether your pet likes it or not.
