    Switched from Gastrointestional food

    By Laura on Jun 13, 2020

    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 Excellent ingredients in this food.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Ingredients the same as the frozen

    My female seems to like this, same ingredients as the frozen raw my male eats. Hope to find it in larger. middle size kibble to help keep her teeth clean.

    love the small kibble size

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Tried this brand at the recommendation of a chewy rep after my dog had a hard time transitioning from puppy formula to medium breed formula on Royal canin. The kibble sizes are so small and that’s a great plus for my super picky beagle. I’m still searching for a dry food that she’ll eat alone but for now this is working for me to mix in with her other food.

    Good product

    My dog likes this when mixed with his wet food but the combination gives him terrible gas!! I'm sorry to say that I am still searching for another dry food.

    The whole bunch like it

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I am very happy with the size kibble, perfect for small mouths. It is a food all of them like. I also am happy with the ingredients. My only complaint is the bag size choice; Having 5 dogs, a 15-18lb bag would be perfect.

    Great Dog Food

    By on

    We have been using the Instinct Small Dog Ultimate Protein variety. One of our dogs could use the added protein, the other not so much. We purchased this and I add a bit more protein for the other dog. This is a good money saver from the other bag that only comes in 4lbs. The dogs eat this one, but definitely seem to favor the other product in terms of taste, hence the 4 stars only.
