  • If your pet does not consume all the food presented within 30 minutes, discard any leftovers.

  • Keep package sealed to maintain freshness.

    This has been great for the health of my sr dogs! Their energy level is up and theirs eyes are bright and cost shiny! The only thing is it takes a bit longer to defrost than what it says. But it’s worth it

  • He loves these

    I have a finicky fur baby that will eat a new food for about a week then not want it anymore. Even alternating, he refuses. Well that’s not an issue with Instinct. He can’t wait for me to put it down. Once down, it’s gone. It does stay frozen and only bring out daily what you will feed. But small bites defrost in 15 minutes so has not been an issue.

  • Instinct has changed...Dogs will not eat NEW small bites varieties

    By on

    Have been feeding Small Bites varieties of Instinct for years. This and the chicken varieties have changed ingredients. My dogs will no longer eat the Beef or Chicken varieties. Have donated my entire order of this food to a local rescue I work with in the hopes that some of their foster dogs will like it. I am back to home preparing food for my hospice dogs.
