    My dog loves this

    By DebbieNY on Nov 21, 2021 top1000Contributor

    I gave this 4 stars because I have 2 larger pitties and they only have the senior type in a 3 lb bag. I went through it in 2 days :( I have used the Chicken many times. This food thaws out fast. My advice is to make a plate for your dog, let it sit out for 5 minutes and then give it to them. It will still be somewhat frozen but it kinda melts in your dogs mouth. If it thaws out completely it will be too mushy. This is what I do and they love it. And IF you get a bag thats all frozen together return it because it may have thawed and the store refroze it and when that happens bacteria grows. All the nuggets should be frozen and not stuck together. Hope this helps.

    Finally Eating Each Meal

    By Hostile17 on Nov 12, 2021

    My dog would barely eat her food when we were on kibble. Now that she is fully on raw, she eats every meal without me trying to coax her. She prefers it frozen and not thawed, so I just scoop it right from the freezer and into her bowl. Easy.

    Good, but hard to serve.

    By Steph on Sep 22, 2021

    I got the frozen bag because it's 3lbs, whereas the senior freeze-dried is a bit smaller and more expensive. My older girl, 12 year old husky mix, likes this food HOWEVER it was completely thawed out when I recieved it and re-freezing made it a huge mess and exceptionally hard to break apart enough to even feed. I'm thinking about throwing the whole bag away and getting the freeze-dried stuff. If you can find it in stores, make sure it's not a solid block and then you're good to go. I can't find it anywhere, however...

    My dog loves this food, it's easy to thaw and serve. She was ready for senior dog foods. Love having it on autoship too. The petstore is always out of it.

    My picky Pomeranian adores this high quality food!

    By Pomeranian on Oct 7, 2021

    Finally, I was able to find a healthy and high quality diet my picky Pomeranian adores! She is a finicky eater and turns her nose up at most dog foods, but she truly enjoys Instinct Bites.

    My Dog loves it

    By Mkj11 on Oct 29, 2021

    Just read the directions and do not defrost the entire package at one time. This is great frozen food but defrost a days feeding at a time.
