  • New packaging, same quality product

    By on

    New packaging and design on Instinct raw boost Beef grain free dog food. Nice Natures Variety went back to resealable bags, saddened they decreased the amount of food to 20lbs from 23-28lbs while not lowering the price accordingly. Quality of food seems to have remained unchanged & dont see where new improved part is in the food. Still a good food to feed.

  • My dog likes it!

    By on

    My dog is a slow picky eater. But she likes this food and it does not give her any ill effects like diarrhea due to additives and grain. It smells and looks like a good food out of the bag. She seems to like the duck better than the beef. But all in all this is a good grain free dog food.

  • love this food

    By on

    My dog loves this food - forget that it has meal in it. She's a very picky husky and I actually mix this with the Instinct High Protein chicken dry dog food. We've been through several rounds of this and she is still in love with it. Sometimes you have to pick your battles...

  • The taste test proved this is good stuff

    By on

    My picky dog stopped eating her regular food so I've been trying other foods. I did a taste test by putting three different "new" foods in three bowls side to side. She went to this one first and finished the bowl before she even tried the others!

  • Great for dogs with sensitive stomachs

    By on

    Our multipoo has had problems with just about every dog food. Her breed has stomach issues and typically has daily vomiting. This brand agrees with her and she seldom has to vomit now.

  • Boost for your dog

    By on

    I have made raw food for my dogs for the last 10 years.When I got a new puppy the vet suggested I leave food down for her to eat at will. I wanted something to leave out all day that would be safe if not eaten in a few hours, that is when I tried Nature's variety. My dogs love instinct so much that they have switched over to it all together. But old habits are hard to break and I still make raw food once a week but now it's more like a topper than a meal

  • Finally! A great food that is not TOO rich

    By on

    I finally found a food for my year and a half year old puppy who has been fighting parasites. Every dog food I have tried has seem to make it worse but this one actually Is great! He's not done with his parasite treatment yet but he sure is doing a lot better and I know part of it is because of this food.

  • Great product

    By on

    My mini-Shnauzer loves the Instinct Raw Boost dry food. I usually buy the Prairie and have been happy with that. The breeder recommended it and we have been feeding it to her the past almost 7 years. The dogs love the little raw morsels. This bag seems to have a lot of them. I have purchased bags in the past that were scanty of the morsels so I am very pleased this time.
