Excellant dog food

This is a good, temporary, replacement for the Lamb Raw Boost, I would and have used, that is no longer available. How long this will be on the market is anyones guess. Callie is allergic to many meats except lamb and venison. Lamb of other manufactures have potatoes, peas, and lagumes, all of which she has an alleragy reaction to. Have my fingers crossed Instinct's lamb is back on the market soon. So far this beef is working and she does like it.

She's Eating Kibble for Once??

Got this brand for frozen raw food but wasn't in love with it. I see the raw pieces are similar to that- which is cool! The kibble itself is shaped flat and circular which I think is easier to eat for pickier pooches than round spherical kibbles. She actually ate this kibble without toppers, water, eggs, cheese, or handfeeding. This is a big deal in this house with my old lady. She's so picky so I doubt this will last forever, but certainly will continue rotating this type!

She’s not impressed

Instinct is a brand recommended for my Blue Heeler mix. I thought she would dig right in since it is supposed to be such a healthy choice. She rarely finished her kibbles. Doesn’t even eat all the freeze dried pieces. May only finish all of her kibble if I mix it with canned food.

High quality food

I recently rescued a young Beagle mix who's horrible owner was going to drop her off at a kill shelter. She has been abused and mal nourished. She now has a safe happy home and is doing well on Instinct raw boost. My two Scotties also like it.

The Lucky Charms of Dog Food

Hmm...would I recommend ? Well...on paper, if you look at ingredients, this is some of the best stuff out there, and those freeze dried raw chunks are a "No Brainer," my Lab and Silky Terrier tore into this after the very expensive experiment bag of Orijen "6 Fish" they couldn't stand and reluctantly choked down when they were starving ....it was a fun relief to see them jump on this Instinct as soon as I poured it into their bowls..... but, then I noticed after a day or so, the honeymoon was over...they were more indifferent to their new food....and I quickly figured out why....just as we kids would pick out those marshmallow shapes in our bowl of Lucky Charms, my dogs had figured out what those "special" bits were, the freeze-dried raw meat chunks, and they were gone out of every bowl in the first minute or so...and there's NOT very many of them either...maybe 50 to 1 ratio or less ? This would be worth the price if they increased the amount of "raw" bits to maybe twice what they're doing now...but friends are telling me their Labradoodle loves his Diamond, at half the price (40lbs vs 20lbs)...so that might be our next test in the "Grand Dog Food Quest."

Best one yet!

We have been feeding our dog instinct for since she was a puppy over a year and a half ago. We rotate flavors every other bag, but I’ve stayed with this brand from our old dog who lived to be 16. This flavor, however, is without question our pooches favorite. From the first time we dropped it in her bowl, she gobbled the entire bowl without thinking about it. She has always enjoyed her other instinct flavors, but for some reason this one gets eaten immediately while the others getting over a 20 or 30 minutes.

Great ingredients, calorie dense, puppy loves it!

I thought LONG and hard on what I wanted to feed my puppy when I first got him. I actually wanted to feed raw but he had no interest in the Primal chicken i bought him. I decided on Instinct rawboost because of the great ingredients and high protein and calorie count. He loves it now and actually won't eat instinct's other lines that aren't raw coated. I bought him a bag of Be Natural once and we had to add the Instinct freeze dried toppers crumbled on top to get him to eat it. He got used to the good, tasty stuff! We switch through different flavors of the rawboost now and he's never had a problem with it. His poops are healthy and he always eats as long as we add some water to the food. Definitely love this brand!

Extremely satisfied

I have boxers and finding a food that is good for them is hard. The oldest is picky and has allergy issues. This food has not only helped but turned her around where she acts like she is 3 again.

My Border Collie Blue Heeler Loves It!

My young Border Collie Blue Heeler LOVES Instinct Raw! She devours her food in less than five minutes and gets super excited when she sees me putting her food in her bowl. However, I have noticed that her stool is a bit more solid since she started on Instinct, but it's not hard or rock like. She's been on Instinct now for about two weeks.
