Questions & Answers

19 Customer Questions

Why is the protein percentage lower in the large puppy food than the other types of instinct food?
Answer by ChewyJul 25, 2018
Feeding large breed puppies something that is too high in protein may make them put on weight too quickly causing abnormal joint development and making them more prone to issues like arthritis in the future. Many large breed puppy formulas are designed with this in mind. This particular formula has a balanced mix of poultry, fish and meat for a healthy exposure to proteins.

How many cups does the 20 lb bag hold?
Answer by ChewySep 27, 2018

Great food disappointed in quality

We have been feeding this food to our 8 month old Belgian malinois. Lately the freeze dried pieces are completely smashed and it leaves the food all powdery. It makes the rest of the food gross especially if our god gets any water in his food. Really disappointed especially since this food is quite pricey.

Dog won’t eat it

Good choice for my Pup

Just got a 4 month old she loves this kibble. I like the listed ingredients. Ticks all the vet's suggested ingredients for a raw diet. Eventually she'll go totally raw diet. Good skin, teeth, coat, energy and behavior.

My puppy grows!

Our 9 week German Shepherd loves this kibble which we alternate with a Raw diet. He is growing as expected and loves his kibble! Not a piece left behind!

Good food for all animals

I love instinct and so do all of my pets. I buy this for my cats and both of my dogs, and they all eat it so well, I noticed the smell of their poop is also not as bad.

Is a great food, pup doesn't like it

Okay let me start off by saying this is a great food and made my guys coat and digestion the best it's ever been. At first he loved it because it was new and exciting but about a bag and a half in, he wouldn't eat it right away, it had to sit for at least an hour before he gave in. And let me just say that my guy is a 13 month old lab so he will down anything given to him so this was quite a surprise when he became un interested. I will be switching him to a different recipe and see if I have more success.

great for my GSD!

My German Shepherd puppy loves this stuff! He eats half raw food and half of this kibble. The only reason I give 4 stars is there isn’t as much of the raw pieces in the kibble as I had thought there would be. But overall good food!

Great food for picky eaters

My 4 month old Siberian husky is the most picky puppy out of all dogs. He would stay hungry and not eat his kibble. I went through countless brands to find this one that he finally seems to enjoy. Fingers crossed. I have over 10 dry food brands he would try kibble or to and than not eat.

Puppy LOVES it!!

My 3month old German Shepherd puppy LOVES this food. As soon as he hears the bag open, he tries to stick his head in there, good thing its resealable! Surprisingly enough the transition to this new food was not hard on his tummy at all, I was a bit worried because of the specific transition recommendations but it went very smoothly! Can definitely say we found our favorite puppy food, recommend 100 times. Its a little pricey but it's well worth it!
