Questions & Answers

19 Customer Questions


This food does not appear to have Taurine in it, does it?
Answer by ChewyJul 15, 2019
The taurine content of this food is derived from the high meat content and is not added synthetically. Meat naturally contains a lot of taurine through amino acids methionine and cysteine and is the primary source of naturally derived taurine. All Instinct recipes have more than adequate levels of these naturally-occurring amino acids given the amount of animal ingredients they include. Because taurine naturally occurs in their recipes, they do not need to supplement with taurine in their dog diets.

Do these ingredients contain GMOs?
Answer by ChewySep 30, 2019
Instinct sources non-GMO fruits and vegetables for their raw diets.

What percentage of this food comes from animal products?
Answer by ChewyJul 18, 2019
The percentage of animal products in this recipe is 44%.

Does this product come in a resealable bag?
Answer by ChewyJan 15, 2019
All Instinct bags are resealable.

Fantastic Kibble For My Dogs

Not only do my dogs love this kibble, but my two kittens, Mousetrap and Frank love it too. I appreciate the excellent ingredients. I only gave it four stars because the mechanism to close the bag leaves much to be desired. With the many bags of this food I have purchased, I’ve yet to be able to close the bags.

It is food

We selected this food when we adopted our shelter pup. Within a week her fur got soft and shiny and the dandruff stopped. She enjoys meal time and has no gastric issues so we are happy.

Dog loves it!

This is our first bag of this flavor, and pepper loves it. We have been feeding in the sink brand for about 15 years, and this is our second flavor with our new dog. We switch bags and flavors each time we order new, and this one is a definite hit. We love the brand and she loves the food. Win win !

Questionable

While my dog loved it I had to change food due to urinary tract infections. My vet had me change to a Special diet food

My picky dog won’t eat it

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

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
