    Great dog food

    By Tracey on Mar 15, 2021

    I got this food when we adopted (2) 2 year old pugs. They were on Beneful and had awful gas. I researched and decided on Instinct. There has been no more gas. I was told to gradually add the new food and reduce the old over time until it is all new food. The dogs still had the taste of old and gradually I got this food when we adopted (2) 2 year old pugs.

    I really wish

    By charlie on Sep 9, 2020

    I wish that Izzy liked this food. She is a 10 year old Cairn/Yorkie mix and went on a hunger strike for 2 days until I got other food for her. She's pretty fickle, so I don't think it is the food's fault!

    My little dog Winchester likes his new food. When I feed him he right there waiting. Before showed little interest.

    Great Food, Good Price

    By on

    I know, I know. It’s a little pricey, especially for the size bag. However, the ingredients are great, it’s a respected brand, and my dog absolutely loves it. I’ve read a couple of reviews where the reviewer complained their dog wouldn’t eat it. My recommendation would be to get the smaller bag to try, and if it doesn’t work out, you only spent a bit. If it does, your dog will be eating food that’s incredibly good for them! If you’re considering, just do it. You likely won’t regret it :)

    Switched from Gastrointestional food

    By on

    Excellent ingredients in this food. Organ by products which dogs love. I was looking for a more nutritional food for my 1 and 13 year old Yorkies. They love this product. I do still give them royal canon wet gastro food, but I see an improvement in their energy levels, may switch to instinct wet food as well soon.

    Instinct of food

    The best I have used it was not as palatable to her as some of the cheaper brands, but, now that she has been on it for two weeks she loves it.

    All four love this food

    By on

    I am so happy all four love this food. They started eating it while I was pouring it in their dish. It is rated five stars by Dog Food Advisor. I will be feeding the Solid Gold too.

    Good but not for us

    By on

    This food was a great upgrade from a previous uninformed Pedigree purchase. My dog loves it to the point I can even use the little kibble as low-reward treats for reinforcing previously learned tricks. However, my dog seems to have a sensitive stomach and while this is good enough to keep him happy and diarrhea-free (most of the time) it might not be the best option for puppies like him.

    Our two Chihuahua/Terrier mix dogs like this food.

    By on

    Grain free, however I supplement their diet with oatmeal and vegetable or fruit treats that I make, plus slices of sweet potato that I dehydrate in the oven.

    Good so far

    By on

    I just started my chihuahua on this food and it’s so good so far. She likes the kibble size is small compared to her puppy food she use to eat.
