    After mixing him up his dinner of half THK and Acana I realized I will need to wake up 5 minutes earlier to feed him and still make it to work on time. I need to figure out what the correct mixture of water to THK so it will be more solid than what it was tonight. I am almost out of Acana so I will try to wean him off of it and work on the mixture

    When I fed THK, I just went right to it and there was no issue at all... no runny poo, no anything-- all normal. they did however, poo less

    I might try just THK saturday morning and see how he does and if I need to gradually move him onto THK I will go back to half and half. He didn't have any issues tonight

    We prep Tyson HK when we feed him for the next meal. Does that make sense? Lol I use a glass Pyrex and prep his morning meal at dinner. At breakfast after he eats I prep his dinner. Just makes things faster. His meat I cook once a week too. Which HK did you go with??

    It's always going to be a little mushy, but will firm up the longer the water has to soak in its messy. But all worth it truly if it works *crossing my paws

    I went with Turkey and Parsnip which is grain free. I mixed 3/4 a cup of THK and 3/4 warm water and let it sit for 3 minutes like the instructions said. I didn't give him a whole meals worth and probably added too much water since it was really runny but he needs to drink more water anyway.

    Do you mix it and let it set all day or prep it and have it ready for water at the next meal? I used a glass pyrex measuring cup also

    I mix it ... I literally just put in the honest kitchen then the water put a lid on it and stick it in the fridge until his next meal. That way it's ready to go for next meal. we ended up doing it this way because of time and because of consistency it's totally fine for it to sit in the fridge overnight, premixed

    When I take it out for his meal I add the meat and then pop it in the microwave for a minute so it gets warm! If for any reason the one with the protein added in it doesn't work then you can always try the base mix like we do and add your own protein. Hoping it's a winner and he does amazing on it!

    Keep me posted and let me know if you have any other questions but pre-making it at each meal will definitely save you on time! So go make his breakfast portion now and leave it in the fridge till morning

    As soon as I get him on just THK I will do that as see how he likes it. I chose the Turkey and Parsnip because it was grain free and not chicken and the guy at the store though the fish or beef would have too much protein.

    Top HK with broth! I guarantee he'll have his water intake of the day. There's tons of good minerals, vitamins in a broth. Boil a small turkey once a month and top it with water. Add your carrots, celery and add some herbs like thyme, rosemary, basil and mint. All anti-inflammatories. Freeze the broth in little ziploc bags and take what you need for 5 days to top each meals. Freeze your turkey in cubes and if one day you're short of HK you got your turkey to save the day. Voilą! Bon appetite!
