How many cans come in the package for $33.48?
Answer by hiyaFeb 14, 2022
Case of 12

I did not realized that this was pate style. Are there other textures (minced, shredded, w/gravy)?
Answer by ChewyAug 31, 2018
On our site, Instinct also offers three minced small breed formulas (chicken, beef, and rabbit) in 3.5 ounce cups

Is this suitable for puppies?
Answer by ChewyFeb 26, 2022
This recipe is formulated for all life stages except for growth of large size dogs (70 pounds or more as an adult).

What is the percentage rate of SALT and POTASSIUM in this dog food?? As these 2 things are also very bad for dogs and dogs have been developing health issues..
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2021
The potassium is 0.30% As Fed and 1.28% Dry Matter. The sodium is 0.11% As Fed and 0.47% Dry Matter.

Nutritious dog food

My chihuahua scarfs down her instinct wet food. I alternate the chicken and beef to give her the benefits of both. I adopted her at the age of 10 yrs. She gets both dry and wet food at both her meals. I sometimes add a few drops of water to her food to make it easier to poop. I have it on autoship to save a little more money. She is healthy and happy.

19 of 24 cans dented

Out of 24 cans, 19 were dented, 3 of which are compromised/opened. What the heck? Are you selling what the stores can’t sell?

love this flavor

My 16 pound Shorkie absolutely loves the beef flavor. He will eat the chicken flavor but prefers the beef. He digests both well.

Didn't like

My girl did not like this one as well as the other. Really did not want to eat it, so will be moving back to chicken.

..Don't buy..

Maya stuck up her nose at it. Even when I mixed it with rice. Also, it was very dry, pastey. Even though it was still within the sell by date.

It's great!

This food is great, my little Peekachi loves it. I mix it with instinct topper and wet and dry and some food i make myself in instant pot. She adores the combo. She doesn’t eat well if this is absent from mix.

Pricey food-Cheap cans

My dog seems to really like this food, I know he would prefer the chicken but it’s so much more expensive. As it is this is a pricey food, and my little dog is worth it. However we have noticed that the opening tab of several cans tend to break off. We end up having to use a can opener. Not a huge deal, but when you pay a high price for something you expect it not to break when trying to open
