Real meats, whole fruits and vegetables and turmeric are a few of the ingredients Instinct uses to provide naturally derived nutrients and enzymes for overall wellness.

Naturally freeze-dried to lock in nutrients and taste without the use of chemicals or additives.


Provides beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids to promote healthy skin and a shiny coat.


An all-natural hypoallergenic starch that is highly digestible, grain-free and gluten-free.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice reviews but my mini aussie hated it Read all of the reviews and thought this would be a great food for my mini aussie (we were transitioning him from puppy to adult food) but he hated it. He isn't a picky dog so we have no idea why he doesnt like it but he would literally pick out the raw boosts and then eat around the rest and pick out the puppy food we mixed in. We tried giving it to him straight as well and he just refused to eat completely.... I think I read 1 other review from an Aussie owner who said her's didnt like it either so maybe the breed doesn't like it? I wish I wouldn't have bought the large bag.... oh well. September 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful kibble! My elderly dog has had many quality foods-I rotate so he gets different flavors and protein. This food has dehydrated bits of deliciousness that he adores. I am glad we found this food. September 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food My dog loves this food and glad to pay cheaper prices then the petstores August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food- less freeze dried chicken than before My Airedale loves this food (ok- he loves any food) and seems to do really well on it. The product does seem to have less and less freeze dried pieces each time I purchase it, though. August 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of natural tasty ingredients! Least Petie thinks so. I like that it has a mix of kibble and raw and know that what he's eating is healthy and good for him. He needs good nutrition being that he's a growing little boy. He is a red pit-bull that was terribly abused and am trying to get him healthy. August 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our English Bulldogs Favorite Food. Period. It has a lot to do with the raw "nubbies" as we refer to them. They are the ta/white sort of soft pieces amongst the regular dark brown traditional kibble pieces. Our two English Bulldogs love them! While they tend to eat almost anything, they run to their food bowls if we put this Pacific Brand in them. August 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best brand I've tried I have 3 dogs- 13 yo Yorkie, 11 yo Pug, and a Pug puppy. I started out feeding the older dogs Royal Canin thinking that it was high quality food. As my Pug aged she developed hot spots and yeast in her folds. Since switching over to this food a couple of years ago, my dogs' have seemed much healthier overall. The Pug still can have an occasional issue with ears and face but very rarely. Also both hers and the Yorkie's coat stopped getting what I'd call dog dandruff. My Yorkie's skin on her stomach also stopped developing dry patches. My puppy has had no issues either so I even suggested to the breeder to switch the parents over because they both have allergies. I would definitely recommend giving this a try. I certainly didn't believe this food was necessarily going to be the "one" after trying some other expensive brands, but it is for them. I'm completely satisfied with this product and Chewy does have the best price. January 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Healthy dog food The only reason I gave a 4 star rating instead of 5 stars, is because my dog can be very picky! She eats this better than any other dry dog food, but I still have to put a little incentive treat on top to get her started. July 14, 2016
