Force is a delicious dehydrated raw food formulated for dogs with food allergies or who cannot tolerate grains in their diet. It has a moderate protein base, with higher fat and calories, along with a moderate carbohydrate level.
The Honest Kitchen recipe is a unique, nutritionally balanced blend of dehydrated raw chicken, dehydrated raw vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts. There is no added salt, sugar, artificial preservatives, wheat, corn, soy, beet pulp, dairy or by-products of any kind.
Mix together with water to make a complete meal. Each resealable bag comes with four pounds of dehydrated food. When hydrated, the weight of food will increase by about four times, meaning the bag contains approximately 16-17 pounds of fresh food. All ingredients included are raw, including the protein sources. For adult maintenance.

One cup dehydrated food = 1 lb of fresh food
Each cup of dehydrated food should be re-hydrated with 1 to 1.25 cups of pure, warm, filtered, or tap water, or boiled water that has been allowed to cool. Add the water to the food and stir well. The product will initially resemble soup. Let stand for 10 minutes minimum, for the ingredients to re-hydrate sufficiently. Add your own ingredients if you wish (see "Serving Recommendations" below). Stir again, and serve. Any leftovers should be refrigerated or discarded.
The following suggested daily amounts should be adjusted to suit your own dog's unique nutritional requirements, which will vary according to age, breed, level of activity and what other ingredients are added.
|Amount of food per day (dry)|
|Dog Weight||Less Active||Very Active|
|Up to 10 lbs||1/2 Cup||1 Cup|
|10 to 30 lbs||1 Cup||2 Cups|
|30 to 50 lbs||2 Cups||4 Cups|
|50 to 70 lbs||2-1/4 Cups||4-1/2 Cups|
|70 to 90 lbs||2-3/4 Cups||5-1/2 Cups|
For most dogs, these amounts should be divided into two daily meals. Most dogs enjoy additional raw meat and bones or cooked meat (never cooked bones) being added to this diet. Mix in about half to one cup of meat for each cup of food suggested above. Additional vegetables, fruit or other ingredients may also be added, for variety.
Senior, overweight, or less active dogs may eat the dehydrated food alone.
