Description

Natural nutrition begins with the Instinct Be Natural Real Beef & Barley Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Coated Dry Dog Food. The recipe starts with USA-raised beef for plenty of all-natural protein to support healthy, lean muscles, and never contains any fillers, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meals or artificial preservatives and colors.

    My picky dog won’t eat it

    By Chewy on Dec 12, 2020

    I really wished this would work because currently I’m cooking organic safe for dogs human food and mixing it in with his kibble. My dog is the type that would rather starve himself than eat something he doesn’t like. (Trust me I tried to wait it out and he ended up losing weight as a PUPPY) I wish they put the size of the kibble on here because I know he loves beef, but won’t eat it if it’s too big. I’m giving it three just to be fair cause my dog is crazy. He’s a coco poodle, 1 year male.

    Wanted to like it

    By Sammie495 on Jan 13, 2021

    I really wanted my dogs to like this food. It’s got such great health benefits, but alas, their sensitive stomachs just couldn’t handle this food, even after following the “switching food” guidelines. They kept puking it up :( sad

    Switched to this Instinct brand

    By JVGC on Jan 16, 2021

    My dog does not like this Be natural flavor. I switched from the original chicken and beef. Now I have a bag of beef and Chicken Be Natural and don't know why my lab won't eat these...

    Sweet Girl Loves This Stuff!

    By JessDoingIt on Oct 11, 2020

    Our belgian malinois had an event where she was allergic to something in her previous food. We had an allergy test done and luckily this had no ingredients she was allergic to (and basically the only brand we could find). She also seems to like it alot and seems very healthy!
