  • Amazing stuff!!

    By on

    My dog has sweet potatoes allergies. He constantly had yeast infections in his ears because almost every single dog food has it. Found this one with the recommendation from chewy. My dog is no longer fighting yeast infections. Amazing food. Plus my dogs never get bored with the taste. They love the raw bits. I can also add the different raw mixtures to the food to change up the flavor. So we won't have to switch due to getting bored with the taste.

  • My dogs love it!!

    By on

    I was feeding another high grade food for several years and my dogs started losing interest. I switched over to the Instinct kibble with the freeze dried pieces in it and they went wild! They love it! My daughter has an 11 year old Min Pin that has always had digestive problems. Since changing her to the Instinct she's doing great!

  • Love it!

    By on

    Love this food, and so do my dogs! I've always wanted to feed my dogs raw but have never been able to do it, do to some reasons. This is about as close as I can get. This food is great, I like knowing that my dogs are getting the nutrition of raw but the convenience of kibble. My only complaint is there is not much of the freeze-dried raw in the bag so I buy the mixers to mix in.

    Our Bernese mountain loves this food. His coat looks great and his digestive system is working very well. I recommended this food for my son's two dogs and he mentioned that his 13 year old Chihuahua, a picky eater, loves it. Also his dog has more energy and acts much younger than his age

    My dog loves this food. It has really great ingredients, and we've never had any problems feeding it to him. It's great! We received it one day after ordering it on chewy, and the shipping was free! Definitely recommend it to anyone who shares their life with a furry companion!
