Questions & Answers

15 Customer Questions

What are these "fine ingredients" from "around the world"? Where's the chicken from?
Answer by ChewyAug 30, 2018
All poultry, pork, and fish come from the U.S. (salmon meal from the U.S./Canada/Chile). The fish is fresh-caught from the Atlantic and Pacific. The beef and lamb are from the U.S., venison is from the U.S. and New Zealand, and rabbit is from France. The vegetables and fruits are from the U.S. and Europe depending on the ingredients. The grains and starches are sourced from the U.S., Canada, and Brazil - herbs and spices from North America and Europe. Instinct sources most of their ingredients from the U.S. and turns to other locations only as needed. They are very stringent on sourcing and have good relationships built with their vendors for quality ingredients.

At what age would a dog be considered a senior? I have an 8 year old turning 9 soon Siberian Husky. Would this be ok for her? She also is picky with a sensitive stomach.
Answer by ChewyFeb 25, 2018
Depending on the breed size of dogs the Senior age can range from 7 to 9 years old. The food isn't made specifically for dogs with sensitive stomachs but does have probiotics to help with digestion.

Isn't there too much protein? or is there 35% protein for seinor dogs who need more energy?
Answer by ChewyOct 19, 2017
This food is specifically formulated for senior dogs. L-Carnitine helps burn fat to support healthy metabolism. It's made with boosted nutrition to bring energy back into your dog.

How big are these kibbles for senior? I have a 13 year old Chihuahua, with no teeth.
Answer by ChewyOct 20, 2017
The kibble size is average approximately 11-12 millimeters in diameter.

Very disappointed with this recent bag of instinct dog food I purchased it a discounted price and now I think it was old stock .my dogs now have extremely soft stools since I have been feeding it to them. I've been in touch with my Vet he had me put them on a chicken and rice diet until the stools get firm. And to check the date code to see how old it is . But I can't find it

Won't eat it

Scruffy ate this food excitedly for a few days but now refuses to eat it. He seems to be getting super picky in his old age. Eats treats happily and plays with me in the yard but won't eat this food. Not sure what is up.

My boy gives it two paws up!

My boy had started slowing down greatly so I went online searching for a food that would help. I was already using the Instinct gut health so when I came across this I decided to give it a try. After a few weeks I noticed a change in his movements. He is no longer going down the stairs gingerly and is now racing down them once again. As a plus he loves it and licks his bowl clean after each meal.

Senior Dog food

I am trying this dog food with my 8 year old dachshunds. They pick out the white raw and leave the kibble. There is notnot as much raw in the bag as the picture shows.

Picky eaters take note

My 10 year old pyr/hound is the pickiest eater I've ever come across! But he LOVED this food! He gobbled it down like a starving puppy! Thank you!!!

He likes it!!!!

My 16 year old dog really doesn’t like dry food so I buy the small bags so I don’t end up with a bunch of uneaten food. But Johnny liked it. And he is really picky! All good!

Natural for dogs

My dogs loved the flavor immediately and I feel good giving them something that is not filled with a bunch of unnatural items.
