Hi everyone! Today was pretty uneventful, aside from receiving Zev’s samples of The Honest Kitchen “Keen” in the mail today for us to try. Keen is a low gluten, adult maintenance formula for all breeds and sizes. It is one of the least expensive formulas from THK yet also provides dogs with sensitivities a balanced and complete nutrition. John and I are looking to switch Zev from his Purina dry kibble to THK and Keen was recommended to us by THK’s product specialist. Zev is very healthy but does experience some skin sensitivities a few times each month. His issues are nothing like what Lexi faces, but he does get itchy and we want him to be comfortable. A low gluten food like Keen might help to relieve some of his itchies. He is also getting older (he will be 7 in June!) and we want to give him the best nutrition possible to ensure his “golden years” with Lexi are comfortable and wonderful. John gave him his first taste of Keen at dinner today – he hydrated a spoonful of it and mixed it with his kibble, as a start. He ate it up without hesitation, per usual! Tomorrow I will add in a little more Keen and we will gradually increase the amount of Keen and decrease the amount of kibble until he has fully transitioned off his dry food. I have received a few free samples of Keen from THK, so we can try it out for a few days before we purchase a box of it. Denise from Dogs in Harmony has offered to order Keen through her shop if we decide we want to purchase it. Meanwhile, Lexi still LOVES The Honest Kitchen “Thrive” and really is thriving on it! I honestly had never heard of THK before we took an interest in adopting Lexi and starting reading Laurelin’s blog. After doing some research of my own I am really impressed with the company and the quality of its products, especially with so many recent recalls and scares revolving around popular commercial food and treats.
So, that’s about it for today. The dogs spent most of this slushy, wintery day relaxing on the couch and napping. Lexi’s right ear looked much better today. Still a little itchy, so we gave her a few ear drops again, but otherwise all is well. Enjoy a few pictures!
We hope you all stay safe and dry! Thanks for following along on our adventures in forever. Hugs and kisses from Lexi and Zev, BFF’s!
