Questions & Answers

15 Customer Questions

Why do they need to put Biotin in their food? Unless of course the egg products they are putting in will cause our cats to have a deficiency in Vitamin H? Can anyone explain this to me? I could be wrong but that is why I am asking.
Answer by ChewyApr 02, 2021
Biotin, also known as vitamin H or B8, is a water-soluble, nitrogen-containing vitamin that is imperative for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Biotin has been shown to strengthen keratin found in nails and footpads.

What is the carb percentage?
Answer by ChewyOct 26, 2020
The Chicken recipe contains 0.60% Carbohydrates, the Duck recipe contains 0.70% Carbohydrates, and the Salmon recipe contains 0.80% Carbohydrates all on an as fed basis.

Is it safe to have clay in wet cat food? I noticed this brand does.
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2020
Montmorillonite Clay is approved by AAFCO for use as an anticaking processing aid to adsorb excess moisture and to help keep the food from clumping.

Does this contain guar gum?
Answer by ChewyJan 13, 2021
This recipe does not contain any guar gum.

Replacement choice for out of stock item

I chose this for my two cats due to the Blue Canned food being out of stock. They have not liked it as well. I like the price of it but if they don't eat it then there is no cost savings. Hoping Blue comes back in stock.

Go to food

My babies love this food. And because they love it so much and it's more natural ingredients, I don't mind getting it. They are so spoiled and I want them to live long and happy lives. Your babies will love this! And love you even more for it!

Good kitty response Great Human response

Well-packaged! My cats love all the flavors, and I love that Instinct provided a 12-can option...24 cans is a lot to try out on finicky kitties.

This one works!

I feed my cat the dry chicken Instinct, but she can use a little extra during the colder months, so I added canned this year. She loves it.

Not great for my cat

My cat hated this food, unfortunately. He would not even try any of the flavors. I ended up giving it away.

Finally a canned food that my 2 cats love, and even after refrigerated the second day. I tried the original recipe: Duck, Chicken, Salmon, Lamb, Venison, and Rabbit. I normally get 3oz cans, because after refrigeration they refuse the rest. But not with Instinct, it is moist enough I don’t need to add liquid, after Refrigeration, and the bowl is clean. The ingredients are superb no gums, potatoes, rice, chickpeas, or corn. No K3! And the price is good, compared to some I have tried. The cats like it and I’m happy with the ingredients. There is one difference there is 2 different children recipes, one has Guar Gum, which is not bad but I prefer not to give that to my cats, this one in this variety pack does not. I have found what I have been looking for, it has been a year on this quest.

Bad Duck!!

I've been eating Instinct pate ever since my humans brought me home. It is definitely my favorite brand of cat food. I have eaten the duck on many occasions and usually find it quite satisfying. Not so much with this last batch. It was most certainly BAD. I would paw at it, complain and refuse to eat it. If my humans made it clear that was all I was getting I would eat about one and a half ounces and immediately vomit right next to my raised bowl. I have since eaten Instinct duck from a fresh source of 5.5 ounce cans and it was as good as I remember.

Good quality

Good ingredients. New kitten likes it sometimes. Variety pack means I can give her a variety of proteins so she doesn't get addicted to one type of food.

No longer a fan

I have 10 cats, all of which have loved this food. It caught my eye for it’s no wheat soy gluten etc. and I felt it be the healthiest option for a long time, but something changed w/ their interest and I’m sure ingredients did too. Montmorillonite clay?! Since when & why even bother…so unnecessary. And on top of that, I noticed the ingredients on the can say guar gum which isn’t advertised here. Needless to say, I’m a bit disappointed but 3 stars for doing things right a while back.

Good choice for our Sr kitty who requires extra TLC

We’ve been upgrading our Sr kitty’s food for the last several years as she continues experiencing increasing short-term health issues. Getting her to eat regularly is important. I decided to try Instinct’s canned variety pack and she is eating it better than anything previously. I’ve been warming each bowl slightly which may be helping. We are very pleased to see her eating better again and looking healthier.
