    Healthy treats

    By Coffeeman on Nov 25, 2021

    We have 4 cats. A few months ago we changed our wet cat food from a Major Big Brand Name to the Instinct canned pate and never looked back. The cost is higher but the difference in our cats eating habits have changed. They are content and satisfied eating less! One cat is extremely over wait. He is now loosing weight and looking much better. They are getting real meat instead of carbs that they can't digest properly. We have now decided to forego the unhealthy bagged treats and serve them this Real Duck Freeze Dried Coated Kibble, and the cats love it! We live and we learn! I'm looking forward to fewer visits to the vet!!!

    Grain free duck

    By Sue1097 on Oct 16, 2020

    I don’t use dry as my kitties main staple as dry dehydrates them. I lost a kitty to stage 4 kidney failure because all he liked was dry food. So I use it as a treat now. My kitties give this 5 stars.

    Lock this bag away!

    By Stef on Apr 29, 2020

    While this comes in a sturdy, resealable bag, it cannot withstand the claws of some very determined (and totally not starving) cats. Tried it for variety and they love this. I offer 4 kinds of kibble at any given time and, right now, this is the bowl that empties out first. I want to feed high quality food and I like what I'm reading on their website (www.instinctpetfood.com/our-story/our-ingredients).

    Duck flavor

    By CharlieKay on Apr 10, 2020

    This may be really good cat food, but it's very dark in color and my two cats wouldn't eat it (or the salmon flavored). I tried mixing it with the regular food they have been eating, but most of it is getting thrown away unfortunately. Perhaps someone else would have better results.

    Great value

    By Lucy on Apr 16, 2020

    I'm retired and carrying heavy items is an issue. Delivery is quick and the variety is excellent. Having litter delivered is a wonderful help.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    By Naki on Feb 27, 2020

    I switched my cat to this from a freeze-dried diet so I was expecting some decline in her but nothings really changed, her fur is still really shiny and she love this food just as much. Would definitely recommend.

    Healthy and Delicious!!

    By Katchina on Nov 16, 2019

    Two of my sweet cats brother and sister are CraZy for Instinct Duck at Dinner!! ..Dry food makes them fat but after their summer exercise program they lost all their weight and are back to eating this at dinner and an evening meal of Instinct Duck will keep them warm in the winter nights..They can eat this food until they are Stuffed so I have to measure it out for them no free grazing on this dry food..yes it costs more but I dont want them to become diabetic as they age..So this is the food I buy.. Believe me its worth the price compared to having two insulin dependent cats later on in life..and its very Tasty to them!!
