Force is Honest Kitchen's delicious offering for adult dogs who are intolerant of grains. Force is a dehydrated raw dog food, formulated with moderate protein, higher fat and total calories, with a moderate level of carbohydrates.

Force dog food is made from 100% human food grade chicken, organic flaxseed, potatoes, celery, cabbage, sweet potatoes, zucchini, green beans, apples, honey, alfalfa, kelp, yogurt, bananas, papayas, basil, garlic, rosemary, vitamins and minerals.

All of Honest Kitchen's dehydrated raw dog food products are formulated to meet the AAFCO nutrient profiles for dogs and you don't have to add anything (other than water) to make them 'complete'. However, the original idea behind these diets was as a base for a raw or other home made diet and to facilitate that, they are somewhat 'lite' in terms of fat and protein, so that your own choice of raw, or cooked, meat can be added, if desired. Half to one cup of extra meat or other ingredients may be mixed in with each cup of food, once hydrated.
