    Dog too picky

    By on

    My dog is extremely picky but I’m sure this item is great. I love that it has freeze dried bits in the kibble and is a great size for small breeds. Seems to be good to feed your dog and healthy. Im sure another dog would love it.

    Mom buys this food for me and i love it. I never have any problems eating all my food. I would suggest to any of my four-legged friends to talk to their moms and dads and ask for Instinct!

    The word RAW should be in much smaller

    By on

    When my dog was not eating this and picking through to only get 1 or 2 raw bites. You get about 1.5 cups of raw in a 10lb bag of kibble.

    Dog Loves It

    By on

    My dog loves this brand and the beef flavor. The one thing I will say is that the beef gives him horrible breathe and I probably will go back to the chicken for that reason.

    Small bites

    My small dog loves this food. The kibble size is small as well so he can chew it easily.

    Great food!

    By on

    My dog has an issue with allergies so I moved her away from food containing chicken. She loves this food, especially the raw pieces.
