  • The Best Dry

    By on

    My guy came from a shelter eating only dry, but then switched him to a combination of moist and dry. First we tried Merrick moist and dry with limited success. Dexter was not thrilled and often would not eat it. Then we switched to Halo dry and moist, and found that he didn't love the spots stew and did like some of the pate's that thy offered. We're still giving him turkey and giblets and turkey and duck. We recently did some research and came across Instinct brand. This brand tops all the others. I'm feeding Dexter Limited ingredient dry turkey formula which he devours and have given him cans of lamb, turkey, and duck which he licks the plate clean.

    My cats love this food. I believe my 4 year old Calico is chicken intolerant d/t itching and pulling out fur and scooting her rump alot. After eating this food for a few weeks, she is better with all 3. It's very hard to find a dry or wet food without any added chicken. I am definately interested in trying the Rabbit food too; both cats really like the wet food of this LID brand (I also have a 5 mo old kitten). I like to be able to feed them good quality food as I believe it saves money later in vet visits. I would love for Chewy to offer a loyal customer program or something every 3 months for loyal customers, I have been loyal customer for years now as they have great customer service My cats love this food.

  • favorite kibble

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    My adopted cat started on Royal Canin at the shelter, but my friend suggested healthier diet since brewers rice and yeast was the first ingedient. So I found Natures variety instinct by researching, not so expensive like Orijen but acceptable ingredients. We started with chicken meal and later when she developed slight redness/swelling of corner of mouth, I started eliminating many things as trial since I thought it may be an allergy. I liked that this is a limited ingredient product and it seems to be her favorite dry kibble flavor. her bowl is more likely to be emptied and sometimes after eating wet food, she sometimes still wants dry food.

  • Instinct - Limited Ingredient Dry cat food

    By on

    I've been having a difficult time finding this dry food in the pet stores (good for cats with allergies) - and then, could only get the smaller bag, if at all. SO easy to order this online, set-up for recurring orders, AND be able to get the larger sized bag! Had it the day after I ordered it - better than running all over to various stores trying to find it!

  • Great alternative

    By on

    We have had our one cat on Hypoallergenic Royal Canin for irritable bowels for the past 3 years. All of our cats eat it because it's much easier since we have an automatic feeder and now we have 7 cats. We switched because it's grain free and way less expensive. Everyone loves it and doesn't seem to bother our girl who has bowel issues.

  • Worked for my allergic cat

    By on

    I tried several other limited ingredient brands for my cat who had developed a severe food allergy. This is the only one I saw a significant improvement with. The scabs from her scratching had healed and her fur started growing back within 1-2 weeks of starting this food. Luckily all 4 of my cats like it.

  • This is a great food

    By on

    This is a great food, my cats had been on it for months until the recipe change. My female cat has sensitivities that unfortunately make her unable to eat the new recipe. However, for a cat that needs no fish product this is a great recipe!

    I have a clowder at my house and was feeding them Fromm. Been trying different no grain and finally gave Instinct a try. Not one piece of kibble is left in their bowls. I think I found a winner

  • Cats Love this Food!

    I have three senior cats who free feed on this food and they absolutely love it. They are all different body compositions with various medical conditions, but each manage to maintain their individual weights and health on this food. We were on the rabbit protein food for a long time and they decided they were done with that and stopped eating it. I ordered this food hoping they would like the turkey and they took to it immediately. The high quality, limited ingredient, and grain free diet is important for our senior cats, one of which is food sensitive. They have all done very well on this food.
