It is recommended to store this food in a cool, dry place, to prolong the freshness of the food. An unopened bag of kibble is good for up to 18 months, keeping in mind not to exceed the printed expiration date.

What is the sodium content?

This recipe contains 0.60% Sodium on an as fed basis and 0.67% Sodium on a dry matter basis.

Can you mix this kibble with the frozen as well?
Answer by ChewyMay 04, 2022
Raw is like canned food in terms of moisture content and rates of digestion; people routinely combine canned and kibble diets with no digestive upset or stomach emptying issues. Many consumers mix kibble with raw when transitioning their pet to the raw diet. Also, mixing Instinct Raw with kibble as part of our rotation diet is a great way to feed raw food so that your pet can receive the benefits of raw while still providing convenience and cost-effectiveness for the pet parent.

Yumm dog going to love it!

My dog loves this flavor! He gets excited as soon as he smells it and I love how nutritious and healthy it is for him! The only thing I dislike is the grain free aspect. Dogs need healthy grains in their diet I would be purchasing the same flavor with grain if it was in stock. Otherwise very good brand and healthy food choice!

The Way To Go To Feed Your Doggie

We have a 5-month-old Labrador Retriever puppy. We were feeding him Purina Chow Puppy Formula per the breeder we got him from. He had his 1st physical exam this past Tuesday, he did very well. As a matter of fact, the Vet said on a scale to 1-10 on behavior, he would give him a 10. The only issue he had was his bone near his knee area. It was a bit swollen. He mentioned it could be from the type of food we have been giving him. Therefore the Vet suggested that we take a look on to see what kind of special diet food they have to offer for such an awesome dog such as Shadow. He said that if we prefer Purina One, to buy the ProPlan in which you can only puchase online. As I was looking around for this, I noticed some other choices that contained raw, high-protein, and no grain dry dog food. I chose to purchase Instincts rw bost and Shadow absolutely LOVES it along with the booster food that we bought as well. We also are waiting for the Raw chicken patty dog treats. We want our Shadow to have the best quality of life he can possibly have to live as long as he can. I believe spending a little more on good food that will ensure him to live longer and healthier is better than spending less money on dog food. Thank you for offering such a high-quality kind of raw dog food for our new member of our family!

Shipping Disappointment

When I ordered my dogs food it said, I would have it in 3-5 days. It took two weeks. Luckily I could get a small bag at a pet store. Hopefully it won't take that long next time.

Great Food

All food is subject to the owner and pets: what is the best food you can afford to give your dog. If this food is in your price range, I HIGHLY recommend it. It’s high in protein and the Salmon flavor also has the benefits of Omega-3 and which is great for your skin and hair. Both the pups absolutely love it, and my gf’s dog who’s a super picky eater does as well. If there’s ever an issue, they’ll pick out the freeze-dried bits of Salmon, add some cheddar cheese to what’s left, and no issues aboard the dinner train. #gourmetpups

Too smelly

My dogs liked it at the beginning but then, after the third day, they hated the strong fish smell, I had to mix it with something else so they can eat it.

Instinct brand dog food & toppings

I have a large dog, pitbull/bull mastiff, he has sensitive skin so I have tried out the Instinct rawboost dry food and freeze dried toppings. He loves it... he gets excited for dinner time and doesn't waist any time eating his food. His coat and skin are getting shiny and dry spots are healing up. Although he didn't care for this flavor (I don't think he likes seafood), we are seeing the benefit of the change in diet!

Good product

My dog loves this brand and the salmon flavor was a nice treat. She likes real salmon so I thought we would try it. No issues with her eating it. I would say this is her favorite along with the chicken.
