Questions & Answers

17 Customer Questions

What's the difference between the healthy weight and the regular chicken flavored version of this product?
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2018
While both formulas have the turkey and chicken meal added to them, the Instinct by Nature's Variety Raw Boost Healthy Weight Grain-Free Chicken has the menhaden fish meal and the regular will have salmon meal added to it. The percentage in the protein content is 33% with 348 calories per cup, while the Instinct by Nature's Variety Raw Boost Grain-Free Recipe with Real Chicken has a protein content of 37% and 491 calories per cup. Although most of the vegetables are included in both formulas, the ingredients may vary slightly.

How many cups are in the 20 pound bag and does this need to be kept in the freezer?
Answer by ChewyMar 08, 2018
This food does not need to be put in the freezer. There are approximately 16 cups of kibble in the 4-pound bag and approximately 80 cups of kibble in the 20-pound bag.

Where is the meat sourced from? Particularly the meat that is used for the meat meals that are the second ingredient in this.
Answer by ChewyJun 23, 2019
Instinct by Nature's Variety sources the majority of their ingredients from the U.S. and turns to other locations only as needed. All of their poultry, pork, and fish come from the U.S. (salmon meal from the U.S./Canada/Chile). Their fish is fresh-caught from the Atlantic and Pacific. Their beef and lamb are from the U.S., venison is from the U.S. and New Zealand, and their rabbit is from France. The vegetables and fruits are from the U.S.and Europe. Their vitamins and minerals are from North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Does this food contain any form of soy?
Answer by ChewyOct 06, 2019

Raw boost food

This is my yorkies favorite food ever since she was a pup. I tried many samples from different brands. This is only one she would eat.

Great service

We’ve been using Chewy for several years now. We couldn’t ask for better service. Prices are very reasonable and saves me from running all over town to pick up my pets needs. Thank you chewy!

Great Food!

My name is Ozzie, and I pretty much don't care for any food - but I am enjoying the Instinct Raw Boost food. I am emptying my bowl (well, once a day for sure!).

Instinnct Rewiew

Been through two bags of the Duck and just opened the Chicken. I mix with real meat or chicken and sometimes mix with bone off the ha lunch meat. She likes both real well. So far so good.

My Dogs Hated It

My dogs hated this food. Refuse to eat it. Tried mixing other food in and they pick it out or eat around it. So, now to try another food.

Only food that worked for weight loss

I have a tweenie dachshund and his weight has always been an issue. After switching to Instinct he finally lost some weight. Plus his general mood has lifted and he's my happy Ringo again.
