Questions & Answers

18 Customer Questions

Instructions list feeding amounts in tablespoons, but these pellets don't exactly fit neatly into a measuring spoon. How much is 1 tablespoon? One pellet? Two?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2019
There are approximately 8-10 Mixers in a tablespoon.

what is the phosphorous content on a dry matter basis?
Answer by ChewyApr 17, 2019
For treats and toppers, the manufacturer doesn't guarantee any nutritional information outside of the protein, fat, fiber, and moisture levels published in the Guaranteed Analysis because they are not formulated as complete and balanced diets.

Is this safe for dogs to eat? My finicky cat won't even try them, but my dog has been woofing them down.
Answer by ChewyFeb 25, 2021
The Mixers are not complete and balanced for a particular species, so they are interchangeable. A dog can safely eat the Mixers labeled for cats and vise versa.

Is this chewy or crunchy?
Answer by ChewySep 02, 2020
These topper pieces are more chewy than crunchy and may be broken apart into crumbles, if wanted.

Great for my older cat

My precious purr baby just turned 16 and I've seen her appetite slow down a little. For her wet food, she would often not finish a small can throughout the day. I tried sprinkling a little of the Raw Boost Mixer on top of each serving and that definitely entices her to lick the bowl clean. This should help her maintain her weight as time passes and add some healthy years to her amazing life.

Kittens love them

I adopted two kittens from a hoarder situation and then moved a month later. They are adapting well personality-wise, but it does seem like all the changes are affecting their stomachs since the vet said nothing is medically wrong. I tried adding pumpkin puree to their food, and they didn't like it. They just ate around it. Now the first time I added these, my cats didn't really eat them, but they are only 6 months old and the size may have been off putting. I now crush 1 or 2 and mix it in with their wet food, and they go absolutely crazy! It does seem to be helping their stomach issues, as well!

These Freeze Dried Raw Mixers are d-INSTINCT-ly Good.

We got the opportunity to test out samples of these a year or so. I liked the ingredients and the lack of things that are not needed. The main ingredient is chicken so it is not vegetarian as you might guess from the photos. That was OK for our use as a more natural treat as we only give our male cat 1 or 2 a day. They are also soft enough to not cause an eating issue as our boy has many teeth missing so he tends to do very little chewing before eating. I break each one in half (carefully) too. Our female likes them too but there are many flavors to test.

Totally worth it

I was really skeptical at first with this because my cat is really picky. She had some digestive issue that caused diarrhea. I took her to the vet, ran a lot of tests, and spent a lot of money just for the results to come back okay. I was frustrated that I decided to give this a try. She actually loves them and her digestion got way better. This is a must if your cat hates medicines to treat diarrhea, plus it has a very pleasant smell. Would totally recommend this.

Cats love these

Both my cats are obsessed with these, and they actually think they are treats! I don't top the food with them since I feed them very high quality food, but if they want snacks I throw a couple of these and they scramble to catch them! As a bonus, one of my cats sometimes eats too fast, and if i give her a few of these before her meal, then she doesn't vomit her whole meal (they are so big she ios forced to thoroughly chew them)

Cats love it!

Both my one-year-old kitties adore this food. I mix 3-4 pellets with their wet food (Blue Buffalo Wilderness, Weruva Cats in the Kitchen, etc) several days a week. I chop them up a little with a spoon, because my boy Mijo is a bit particular about the size of his bites. His littermate, sister Tika, has no such reservations and will happily gobble them whole. They both eat every bite. I love knowing this is raw food that includes bones and organs. So healthy, and my babies’ fur is so soft! Winner. Tika and Mijo give it 8 paws up!

Hard to Clean out of Carpets

My cats liked the taste and ate it up but when they barfed, probably not due to the mixers, they just barf a lot, the orange stains in my carpet were extremely hard to clean up. Harder than anything I've had to deal with and I've cleaned hundreds of barf spots in my light carpet. I don't suggest buying the digestive health due to carpet stains.

my picky eater loves instinct!!!

I switched my cat to purina pro plan wet food recently at the recommendation of my vet, and while he doesn't dislike it I have trouble getting him to finish it. All the instinct raw mixers are a lifesaver, he's crazy for them and will barely let me put it on before his head is in the bowl (and he's not usually a food motivated cat). Like other reviewers noted, he stands and waits for me to add it to his meal LOL. The consistency is really convenient to crumble over the food which is good, because otherwise he'd just pick them out and walk away. Too soon to tell if the digestive aid is effective but he hasn't had any constipation issues in the past few days I've been giving it to him (for reference I also give him pumpkin so his constipation issues are few and far between now). Highly recommend especially if your cat is a picky eater, this might be what they've been waiting for.

my cat ran away from this as if poison

I thought I was doing a good thing for my rescue cat by adding these with his dry grain free food. Holy cow he sniffed the bowl once and made a weird face and boom he was gone. OK I get the message. I will not mix these in his food ever again.

don’t recommend

I got these to add to my cats kibble. I’m not sure how they are supposed to entice cats to eat! My cats ate around them! They wouldn’t eat them even when I crushed them to a powder.
