  • Relief for my dog!

    By on

    I cannot say enough good things about this food! My 10 year old dog has been having issues with an allergy that was giving her sores on her belly, and back legs for a very long time. She also had a yeast ear infection. Not fun. Have been giving steroids, and antihistamine as we tried to figure it out. I hated having her on those meds at all, as she was still not right on the medications and that is not the answer. Initially took grains and starches out, and that helped a little... but we still needed more help. Read about this food; tried it, and we're so glad we did! We're three weeks in of the total switch, and we have seen an amazing turn around! Not one new sore, she has tons of new fur growing I cannot say enough good things about this food!

  • Great Quality Food!

    By on

    I got this food for our pups who have been having yeast and itching issues. The itching is down and so is the smell. Along with the salmon oil we have been giving them, both combined are working! Only downside is the bag only lasted just over a week. Would be awesome if they made it in bigger bags.

  • My dog loves this food.

    By on

    In addition to the dog food, I also got cat food and cat liter. All at good prices and the best part of the order is that it was delivered to my front door. Thanks, Chewy.

  • Quick and easy!

    By on

    I really needed to replace my dogs treats and kibble in a hurry. On Amazon, the estimate for delivery was actually several days through a 3rd party. After seeing so many Chewy commercials lately, I thought I would give it a try. I placed the order on Wednesday evening, and it was delivered on Friday!! Regarding this product, my dog has a sensitive tummy. She does very well on this kibble. I soften it with warm water, and let it sit before feeding it to her. She gobbles it right down.

    My westie/chihuahua mix had really "itchy" skin and once I put her on this food, the itchy skin went out the door! She loves it and Instinct is the best food ever.
