    Dog absolutely loves it!

    By on

    It only took one time for her to eat this and gobble it down, that by the next feeding of it, she already knew what the bag was that I got out of the freezer. She jumps and dances around when I get it out and then whines until the few minutes go by that I let it thaw a bit. She's only been eating it for 2 weeks yet, so the health benefits I can't really comment on. Not to be gross, but I wasn't sure if it would make her stools a little softer because of the fruits and veggies in it, but so far it has not. I got chicken and beef flavors to try first and she LOVES them both.

    Arrived in perfect condition

    By on

    I have fed this for many years and heartily recommend this product. I was afraid to order it on-line because of it needing to be shipped. However, lately the product from a local store showed signs of having been thawed and refrozen so I tried Chewy. It arrived in perfect condition like it just left the factory. I was really impressed and made it a reoccurring order. Also the price was significantly lower. Very satisfied here.

    Perfect size bites

    By on

    Great little raw bites. After our doxy had 20 teeth pulled, these have been perfect for his meals. As for customer care/service, I was truly impressed. I received my orders super fast, and they were processed correctly! Thank you, Chewy.com!!

    Great Product

    By on

    Instinct Raw was recommended by my holistic vet. My dogs are healthy and energetic but after feeding Instinct Raw I noticed their coats becoming much more shiny and there is no build up on their teeth! So much easier buying it through Chewy.com!

    Shipping Frozen Pet Food worked great!

    By on

    My Schnauzer has renal disease and it is not easy to find a food she will eat. I already knew this frozen raw chicken recipe dog food is what she likes. Now I know I can order it from Chewy and it will be delivered packed in dry ice. No problem. So convenient!

    Frozen suprise

    By on

    Was so very impressed that the frozen food wasn't a big block--like it is in the freezers of most pet food stores. The pieces were all individual--so impressed!! Great shipping department!!!

    Still have a full bag in the freezer

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I've been wanting to switch my dog over to a raw diet for quite awhile so when I saw this was available on chewy, I jumped at the chance to be able to order online and have a pre-ground raw food delivered right to our door and even more excited that I just pull some out of the bag whenever it's time to feed. No prep work needed! The first bag apparently got lost in the mail or there was some kind of mix up with shipping but as always Chewy made it right and shipped out a whole new order for me. The only problem is, my dog won't touch it and he LOVES raw chicken. I give him some raw every time I'm cooking chicken for the family (which is several times a week) so I'm not quite sure why he turns I've been wanting to switch my dog over to a raw diet for quite awhile so when I saw this was available on chewy, I jumped at the chance to be able to order online and have a pre-ground raw food delivered right to our door and even more excited that I just pull some out of the bag whenever it's time to feed.

    So far so good

    By on

    Recently bought this for my picky senior chihuahua (12 years). She's extremely picky that she will not eat her food for 2-3 days! I've probably switched her foods 5 times already in the last 2 years that I have had her (benefull, simply nourish, blue buffalo, pristine, organix and even ollie cooked dog food) all varying from dry food and wet food and meal toppers. I've been feeding her this for a month now and she licks her bowl clean.
