Why does this have montmorillonite clay in it, along with most other Instinct's products?
Answer by ChewyFeb 20, 2018
This clay has been prescribed to help dogs with diarrhea caused by radiation and chemotherapy cancer treatments. According to evidence from studies, the clay can be an effective alternative to other anti-secretory agents which can cause serious complications ranging from nausea to anemia, including neurological issues.

Works for skin problems

My dog is prone to yeast issues with her skin and this has helped more than anything else I have tried. Very glad the 4 pound is back. I am older and hefting a large bag is hard for me. And thanks to Chewy for excellent service.

My dogs loved it

Yay dogs love this food. Great quality food! Bought specifically for my skin sensitive and stomach sensitive GSD. Works well with him. Unfortunately, I did stop purchasing because it became too expensive. But definitely reccomend

Boston Terrier With Allergies

We have only been using Instinct LIMITED INGREDIENT Diet "Lamb" 10 days, but I'm hoping to find a food that will help our 11 month old's skin. She's been itching for 3-4 months. Several vet visits, prescribed frequent baths with a soothing shampoo, then later a medicated shampoo. She scratched her "arm pits" so much she made sores. Now we're trying Limited Ingredient Diet along with the baths. Instinct is the brand our vet recommends. The Lamb Limited Ingredient is our first try. It may be wishful thinking, but she seems a little less itchy.

Happier healthier pups

Since switching all my puppers to this LID brand food, I have happier more active pups. Not only do they seem fuller off of less food, but their weights are all in check. Makes me wonder exactly what junk in their other food was complete waste...

For a finicky basset with allergies

Our basset hound has many food allergies. We have had a very difficult time finding something that doesn't have a lot of ingredients that are on her "sensitivity" list. The former manufacturer we used stop making her limited ingredient food. So we tried this. She actually eats it and so far, it's has not provoked her allergies. I wish they had one like this in beef, kangaroo, or salmon!

So far so good

Was feeding Purina pro plan sensitive skin but my dogs started not wanting to eat it. They have allergies, so gave this a try. They gobbled it up and so far, their skin is good.

3 years later, he’s 100% !!!

It took for-ev-er, but we found our holy grail! My poor black lab/hound mix has had a reaction to something minuscule in every premium food we have tried. Until THIS ONE! He is once again shiny, rash and flake-free and his silky ears are clean and clear! Oh, and he wakes from a dead sleep if he hears the container slightly open. Even had to buy a puzzle bowl because he now LOVES to eat! I will never have less than 6 bags in reserve in the event of shortages!

Doggy life forever improved

My doggy Charlie has suffered with chronic diarrhea since she was a pup. I then started reading several articles on which foods are best for dogs with sensitivities. This product was one of the last few on my list and it has significantly improved her life. I wish I would have given it a try sooner! She has had the most solid poop I’ve seen in the past few years and she’s actually gaining weight. Super thankful I found this food!
