  • Former Fromm Customer

    By on

    I was one of the Fromm customers who received notification their products would no longer be offered through Chewy. Our 8 month old yellow Labrador had been thriving on this and I was very disappointed with the news. I contacted Chewy by phone for some assistance in selecting another comparable brand of food. They were helpful and provided several options. I selected Instinct because the protein to fat ratio is an excellent rating as well as the extra bonus of grain-free. My dog went wild! The freeze dried pieces of real meat are a huge hit and he absolutely can't wait for meal time! Backyard clean-up is great with formed stool and no digestion problems.

Great job Chewy in assuring your customers are a priority! … more

  • Great food!

    By on

    We've been having such issues finding a food for our pup that she likes, and doesn't upset her stomach. So we did a puppy taste test. Bought two small bags of two different foods, put them down on the floor with little bowls, and saw which she went to first and finished. She chose the instinct raw boost twice in a row. She's been eating this for a month now. Her tummy troubles have cleared up, she doesn't seem to be getting bored of her food, and for the first time she will actually accept her everyday food as a reward during training. The only down side to this food is compared to what she was eating before, it seems to give her some bad breath.

  • food is goo

    By on

    My dog is trying to get used to the food she's been eating puppy but couldn't find so I had to get large breed puppy and they are bigger. I had a bad experience with customer service I found a coupon on chewy.Com and he wouldn't let me use said don't have that coupon only for auto ship I read the coupon to him he said no such thing. Until I said I will cancel my order and tell friends about my experience he figured out a way. If your people don't know about your website they need to be trained better.

    Tried a couple holistic brands with a great reputation and high quality only to be disappointed in the fact Ace would only eat a very small portion of his food to get through the day and his second . After more research, I came Nature's Variety and my boy life has been greater than ever. I highly recommend and version as we have tried several over the last couple of months. Best Ever!!!!!

  • Winner with our Labrador

    By on

    I like that this kibble is large in size for our growing puppy. The nutritionals are excellent for this large breed puppy food and I trust this brand. Our yellow lab is very happy with it and it works well for his digestive system. Pricey but worth it, I researched foods on line extensively and this is one of the top recommended out there.

  • Why is the kibble so large

    By on

    I feed nature's variety instinct raw boost adult to my adult dog. I feed the puppy recipe to the pup. She wants to eat his because the adult kibble pieces are smaller then the puppy formula. Why would you make the kibble larger for puppies? It is common sense.

  • Great food

    By on

    When I first tried this food for my Rottweiler puppy I was worried she wasn't going to like it. She LOVES it! Poops are solid. The freeze-dried raw keeps her entertained as she'll try to pick them out first then finish the rest of her food.

  • The best large breed puppy food?

    By on

    I don't know if it is the best large breed puppy food (How do you measure that?), but I think it is pretty good. Before I brought home my doberman puppy, I spent quite a lot of time researching foods. I finally decided that this one had the best combination of ingredients, vitamins, and minerals for my dog. She seems to love the taste and it agrees with her digestive system.
