Reviews with incorrect info
I wish we could respond to other reviewers. Someone on here stated this food claims there is no chicken meal but it’s the second ingredient listed. No, this food has no chicken ‘byproduct’ meal. Meal and byproduct meal are not the same. Chicken meal is dehydrated chicken meat, byproduct meal is dehydrated, less nutritious parts of an animal. Please don’t review unless you know your facts. I just started my dog on this food for a more nutritious kibble.
This dog food now contains PEAS. Peas are not listed here on Chewy's , but they are now listed on the bags. Check out the manufacturer's website.
Smaller shipping box?
I lov the product, the price, and the quick delivery. I especially appreciate the Customer Service, so refreshing to have someone answer the phone with no recording or wait. The only question I have is Could you please ship the dog food in a smaller box? I have received same food in a smaller box from another company.
My dogs love this line of Instinct. They do not do well on starchy grain free foods where a great deal of ingredient splitting occurs. I rotate the proteins. Compare the nutritional value to the whole grain raw boost. This is a great value.
Dog hates this
Our dog refuses to eat this and will not even eat it if his stomach is growling.
It's a good price/quality. My dogs are healthy. I still add supplemental items like magic dinner dust, vitamins, etc. But feel good about feeding them this on its own as well!
great food and good varieties to choose from
We just switched over to this from the Raw puppy food. We fed this to our older dog that lived to be 16. There is a number of flavors and we switch every bag. This is great food!
Dog does not like it (more to the story below)
Dog has been eating a grain-free brand for 9 years (since puppyhood). Recently, the vet made me aware that grain-free could be problematic diet, so I hunted for a pea/lentil/legume/beet pulp free food & bought this. Tried to gradually mix into her regular food and she is stubbornly refusing to eat it (other than a few nibbles). I don't think it is necessarily the food itself, rather it is a life-long habit and she does not want to change.
Our boxer-mix loves this food, and I love that it doesn't have peas or potatoes, but it does have vitamins, minerals, and probiotics!
Raw or Nah!
The bag is misleading. I expected raw kibble like Instinct's Raw Boost dog foods. This seems to be kibble with a coat of raw. My dog eats it but how good is it for him? I guess I'll have to go back to actual raw and no more raw/kibble.
