  • I love this brand's raw products, but this line is disappointing

    By on

    First, I will say that this is still a premium food and not junk, but I am very disappointed for several reasons: 1. With real duck - this ingredient does come first in the list, but is followed by turkey and salmon meal. So yes, there is duck, but how much duck is a question. 2. Raw boost - I waited for a while to make sure that my observations were true. There were so very few raw pieces. I am better just buying the raw pieces and adding it to the kibble myself. Perhaps this bag is a fluke, but I am not willing to try again. With so many great competing products out there, I am genuinely surprised that this company went the other way instead of boosting their products to stand against First, I will say that this is still a premium food and not junk, but I am very disappointed for several reasons: 1.

  • The gang loves this food

    By on

    I recently switched from a dehydrated raw product (due to cost) to Instinct Raw Boost. This is a great quality grain- free food and my guys are loving it. I have a multi dog house hold and most of them have allergies of one kind or another. This food is working well for all.

  • Excellent food

    By on

    I purchased this food when my regular was out of stock. After 4 days could not believe the difference in my 3 labradors. They love it and coats are shiny and stools firm. We compete in agility and a high quality food is important

  • Extremely disappointed

    By on

    My picky dog with sensitive stomach did extremely well on the original formulation. He had an appetite and ate like a normal dog. I only had enough of the old formula to mix for 3 days. He is now turning up his nose and I am back to square one. I am extremely disappointed and am leaving this brand and am searching other brands for a new food.
