Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions


How long can I keep the can in the fridge after opening?
Answer by ChewyFeb 04, 2021
An unopened can of food will last until the expiration date stamped on the can. Exposure to air, light, hot temperatures and humidity speeds up the rate at which foods degrade. To limit these effects, keep the food stored in original packaging and store in a cool, dry location. Ideally, after opening, any leftovers should be covered and stored in the refrigerator and should be consumed within 3-5 days.

Is this raw or cooked venison and pork liver?
Answer by ChewySep 07, 2018
All of the canned foods are completely cooked.

does this food contain peas?
Answer by ChewyJan 17, 2020
This formula does contain peas. For a complete list of ingredients, click the “Nutritional Info” tab, next to the “Description” tab, just under the product photos when viewed on a desktop computer. Click the "Nutritional Info" tab, next to the "Q&A" tab, towards the top bar above the product image when viewed on the app.

Answer by ChewyApr 29, 2021

Best for my Diabetic Senior Furr Baby

My Cat is 14 she is allergic to everything but venison. I have tried every brand of venison & she has reactions to them. This one is perfect I always add a little water to it in her bowl & mix it to make a pate. She loves this food. She also eats venison limited ingredients dry food so I only give her wet for breakfast & dinner. 1 can last 2 day's. I have Type 1 diabetes so no she's not overweight or eating none stop. This food keeps her full & doesn't spike her blood sugar. The only thing I dislike is the price but it's because I'm on disability. It's expensive but I have to pay that to keep my little Iomadae healthy

Always a hit at our house

Our cat is elderly and has had a lifetime of allergies to any chicken products or byproducts. She's been on Instinct pate venison or salmon for several years with great success. It has no trace of chicken products and apparently is quite palatable for her.

Not palatable

I have 5 cats. One is having allergies. His vet told me to feed him cleaner foods with exotic protein, as chicken is a common allergy for cats. The can says it is venison so this is an exotic protein. It meets the "cleaner" qualification with 95 percent grass-fed venison and pork liver. I am not sure that cats need the five percent vegetables, fruits and other wholesome ingredients but it is a low enough percentage that it doesn't bother me. I don't know whether it is the taste or the texture (the pate was rock solid, not juicy at all, like other pates) but none of my cats would eat this. (I usually use the stars to indicate how many cats like it but couldn't write a review with zero stars.) So I will not buy this again.

The only Venison they like

I’ve tried a lot of canned venison over the years for variety sake, and Instinct is the only one my cats have enjoyed routinely. The pate stirs up very nicely - sort of grainy looking - but very moist. It is quite expensive - so I’m glad it only comes in a case of 12. Plus I freeze whatever portion they don’t eat. Thawing and serving another day or week doesn’t seem to hinder their enjoyment

adequate substitution

I purchased this product to replace another brand of canned venison that is currently unavailable. My cat likes the flavor well enough and will eat this happily. I find it is a bit dry though and not providing the hydration I am looking for, for her. I will use this until the other product is available again.

Finally Discovered

I have tried many many good quality wet cat foods, never had there been one that they loved all the flavors I bought, I tried 6 and 6 were a hit even after refrigeration that never happened. Plus the price is reasonable I have paid triple what I paid for a case of Instinct. So I have finally found in my opinion the perfect food. And my 2 fur babies agree. This food does not have my no no ingredients! ( Wheat Gluten, Corn, Potatoes, Rice, Tapioca, Beans, Legumes, and absolutely no Vitamin K-3 , & no gums!)

Picky eater eats this food

I have one senior who is a picky eater. So far, she is eating the venison pate regularly. I bought it for my second senior who they think is allergic to chicken but she's not very interested in this food. So 50/50 as to who likes it in my house. Just happy the picky eater likes it.

Cats love this food!

Our cats love this food. We tried while dealing with a food allergy in our cat Henry. After trying several brands and flavors this one rises to the top. Venison as well as the Salmon are both big winners in our house. Instinct has great ingredients, so we pet parents love it as well.

My cat loves this food!

One of my cats has IBS and can only eat rabbit and venison food. I could only get this from Chewy, no pet store where I live carries it. When my cat got his first taste for breakfast he finished off the whole can. This was great because he struggles to eat because of his stomach issues. It’s more of a ground meat texture not really pate which is smooth but it didn’t matter to him. It was gone! It doesn’t upset his stomach either.
