Holistic pet food focuses on your pet’s overall wellbeing by using natural ingredients that work with his internal system, such as prebiotics and probiotics to aid digestion and nutrient absorption.
Opt for meats that have been raised free-range, wild-caught or ranch raised. Such proteins will have more of an overall beneficial effect on your pet’s wellbeing.
Honest Kitchen Food Clusters Whole Grain Chicken & Oat Recipe
Honest Kitchen was established in 2002 by founder and Chief Integrity Officer Lucy Postins in her home kitchen. As one of few American facilities that use human-grade ingredients to produce pet foods using gentle cooking methods that preserve taste, nutrients, and color of ingredients without using GMOs, artificial flavors and preservatives, carrageenan gums, feed grade ingredients or meat meal fillers – dogs love this company’s food! Additionally their foods provide both common and novel proteins as well as an abundance of fruits and vegetables to choose from!
MadeHonest Kibbles are created using real whole foods you’d find in any kitchen, such as cage-free chicken, chicken liver and oats, which are cold pressed, slow roasted and dehydrated to preserve flavor, aroma and nutritional integrity. Their convenient scoop & serve packaging provides minimally processed, 100% human grade nutrition without compromising on taste or aroma.

Instinct Be Natural Real Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe
In this recipe from the Prairie line of Instinct dog foods, cage-free chicken is the star ingredient, followed by nutritious brown rice, peas, carrots, and freeze-dried raw pieces. Furthermore, this food does not contain grain, corn, wheat, soy or by-product meals and does not include artificial preservatives or colors.
This recipe boasts above-average levels of protein and fat while boasting below-average carbs, earning it the second highest rating in our database. Millet, a gluten-free grain harvested from seed grasses that’s naturally abundant with B-vitamin and fiber, makes an appearance. Turkey meal provides another protein source. Canola oil can sometimes be considered controversial because its source may come from genetically modified rapeseed plants.
This food features lower levels of sodium and phosphorous than some Instinct recipes while providing additional taurine from methionine and cysteine sources. As with all Instinct recipes, its meat ingredients naturally provide ample amounts of taurine. Furthermore, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex serves as a form of selenium.
