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.

finally a combo

I used to raw feed completely but I needed my dogs to pack on some weight so my vet recommended adding kibble. Did that for a month before I found this and it’s sooo much easier! There are parts of the animal in here that are hard to find in stores near me (heart, liver, etc.) My dogs all love it and it’s much easier. All dog food smells to me and anytime you add raw into it it’s going to smell more. I add some boosters for the extra oils and chicken bone. I love being able to condense their raw mix feed into a single bag of dog food especially with the cost of meat rising everywhere.

Picky eater is eating

We have a year old pointer mix that is a very picky eater, so much so, his hip bones show. We've been through several dog chows with varying degrees of success. The Instinct Raw Boost seemed to be a good choice since it had freeze dried bits in the kibble. Well...he picked out the freeze dried bits and left the kibble. We thought "uh-oh, here we go again". But after a couple of days he started chowing down on the whole bowl of Instinct. He is gaining weight and we are relieved and happy. The only down side to the food is it's smell--it's a little strong, so the bag has to be kept tightly closed.

Instinct Raw Boost Grain Free w/ real beef

My Golden Retriever really seems to love this food and she has very small, compact poops that make me wonder if she’s actually getting closer to eating more nutritiously. It seems like her body is really doing better since I’ve switched her food. She’s on a weight loss journey right now and I feel good about feeding her this brand and just ordered another bag of Instinct. Chewy is the best too.

Dogs do well

My picky Husky likes this food! The ingredients are nice, and the calorie per cup is really nice. If you are looking for a food that the dog enjoys, and has good ingredients this is it.
