  • I recommend Instinct

    By on

    I have a 16 year old lab mix who I rescued when his owner gave him when he was 10. I want his diet to be as healthy as possible because every extra day that he lives is a blessing. He loves the food.

  • Dog really likes!!

    By on

    I bought this to replace the no longer available from Chewy -- Fromm canned dog food I had been purchasing for my finicky dog. When I first opened the can I did not like all the liquid. After the can is refrigerated the liquid becomes solid -- so less messy. Most importantly, my dog gobbles it up. Nothing to throw away when she is through and no cajoling her to eat it!!! Very happy!!

  • Good food but beware of size

    By on

    This is a good food and my dog liked it however beware of the case size. It was my own fault as it is stated that there are only 6 cans to a case but as I am used to a case being 12 cans imagine my surprise when the delivery came and it was only half the size I expected! lol!

  • Quick and Easy

    By on

    I have a finicky eater. Instinct Chicken in the can and small breed chicken dry are his favorites. Our pet stores are either always out or no longer carry it. Enough of worrying it wouldn't be available. Chewy has a longtime customer.

    The dogs are pleased with this, they will eat all of it, they will beg for it. Wet food for one of my dogs is a must since he is a senior with not many teeth.

  • Contains a lot of water

    By on

    Recommending with reservations; this batch (case) of cans literally has liquid sloshing around in the can. It's not gravy-like at all, just watery. That said, it agrees with my German Shepherd and he likes it. The water content may be a fluke; I've bought this product before (off and on since 2015) and it seemed to be about average on the watery scale. If the next case is equally watery I'll try to find something else he likes, because this certainly isn't a cheap food.

  • I like everything about it but ...

    By on

    I like the product, price, and convenience of having it delivered to my doorstep. I'm thinking about switching to raw feeding, though, and I'm not sure if I'll want those kinds of products delivered. How will I know if food remained frozen in transit? Still, Chewy has been great so far for canned food.
