Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

Is this food AAFCO approved for large breed puppies? What is the calcium/phosphorus ratio?
Answer by ChewyNov 04, 2019
This variety contains 0.43% Calcium and 0.32% Phosphorus content on an as fed basis, which is equivalent to a Calcium to Phosphorus ratio of 1.3 to 1.

How long will an opened can last in the refrigerator? We have one tiny puppy that doesn't eat much.
Answer by ChewyDec 13, 2020
An unopened can of food will last until the expiration date. 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 the can, any leftovers should be stored in the refrigerator and should be consumed within 3-5 days.

Hi I need help with the portions , it says to fee 1 1/4 can per 5 lbs... so if Onyx weighs 25 pounds he need 6 cans a day ?
Answer by ChewyAug 26, 2019
The suggested feeding amounts is just our recommendation. It can be adjusted depending on your pet's activity, age, environment, and breed.

Can I mix it with dry food?
Answer by ChewyJan 29, 2020
Mixing wet and dry dog food is fine as long as both options are of high quality and meet your pet’s nutritional and other health needs. Quality wet and dry foods are formulated to provide your pet with all the protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients they need to thrive. Do speak with your veterinarian about what type of food and how many calories per day your pet should be eating.

WARNING DO NOT FEED TO Breeds that weigh more than 70lbs as an adult

On the back of the can (Chewy's doesn't show this information) it states very clearly under Complete and Balanced, it states, "except for growth of large dogs (70lbs or more as an adult)." That's a quote WORD for WORD. I feel terrible for anyone that fed this to a puppy that is a breed that matures over 70lbs. The puppy could have adverse health consequences as a direct result of not meeting their nutritional needs per the AAFCO. This is not an opinion, it's a fact. Chewy's MUST show this information. Luckily I caught it after only feeding this to my puppy for a week so my puppy only missed 1 week from not receiving the necessary nutritional requirements established by the AAFCO.

great product

I am fostering a 6 week old puppy and this has been great at getting him to eat actual dog food. He loves this food mixed in with anything. And instinct is a great brand and natural ingredients and no corn products at all

Pup Loves This Food

We feed our puppy a half can mixed with some kibble several times a week to change up his meals and he absolutely loves when we give him this wet food.

Instinct Puppy food

My puppy loves it. I like that there are no artificial colors since my puppy is sensitive to the dyes.

Great ingredients

I switched to this brand of wet food after finding out the other brand I was using was not healthy for any dog or puppy. Although she's not picky at all with what she eats, out of the 4 different brands I've tried, she loves this one the most. She will gobble this up unlike any other. However, it's very unappealing when you open the can - very watery - but the smell surprisingly isn't as bad as most wet food. Love the ingredients in it as well. You can see peas and carrots in the food. Would definitely recommend to other puppies!!

Great, well liked puppy food!

This food was sent to a Col. Potter Cairn Rescue foster home in AZ that has been fostering a pregnant terrier mix from a shelter in TX. The puppies are now eating a mush of canned Instinct puppy food. The first time in their bowls they LOVED IT! Only one dainty female puppy did not get her feet in the bowl. <smile>

Puppy preservative free wet dog food

Had been looking for a wet dog food that wasn't full of preservatives and chemicals when I found this. I was worried that my puppy wouldn't like it but I could not have been more wrong - he loves it and wolfs it down as soon as he's fed. Will switch to their adult version when he's older.
