    How I wish my dogs would love this!

    By HT12 on Jul 12, 2020

    When I found this brand, I thought I had hit the jackpot for my dogs' skin issues caused by another brand of kibble. I was disappointed. This brand is quite pricey, and I understand why. The ingredients were the main reason why I purchased this food, and having raw bits was a bonus. However, this was surprisingly very fishy, almost foul in smell. I understand that fish meal is the second ingredient, but it was overpowering. There was also very little pieces of raw chicken in the bag. I left this out for 20 hours and neither dogs would touch it. Maybe it's my dogs, maybe it's the food, but I ended up just donating this bag away. Let's hope another dog will like this brand.

    My boy loves it

    By Heather on Feb 19, 2020

    My 80 pound amstaff loves this food. He drools while eating it. I have been feeding him instinct for about a year and a half. He has been getting the skin and coat formula for about 4 months. I've noticed his coat is much softer and shinier than it was. The food is high priced but the noticable difference in my dog makes it worth it. I tried other foods and either my dog wouldn't eat it or I didn't see any benefits. My dog has skin allergies so we'll see how he does when allergy season starts.

    Instinct Raw Boost Skin & Coat

    By jmcdd50 on Mar 21, 2020

    Neither my Yorkie or my Biewer Terrier will eat this food. They smell it and just walk away. I have to mention that my dogs are picky eaters so other dogs might like it.

    Wonderful addition to our dogs' diet.

    By Roxanne on Feb 18, 2020

    This has been a great addition to our dogs' diet. I cook part of their food and add this to it. One of our dogs had been itching quite a bit, but since using this food, he no longer seems to have this issue.

    Picky eater problem resolved!

    By Daisy on Dec 25, 2019

    My terrier mix (45 lbs) 9 mo female has never really liked any brand food I’ve bought .... until now. She immediately dived into this brand and flavor without having to be coaxed. I was surprised to find a food she seems to really like as even high end famous name brands didn’t appeal to her. If u have a picky eater, try this. I totally recommend!!

    great food!

    By Katie on Oct 11, 2019

    My dogs are normally very picky, especially with kibble. After feeding just raw I thought they would have a really hard time going back to hard food. They did amazing and gave gobbled it up every single time without an issue (though we do add nature’s variety freeze dried raw topping to it). I’m highly impressed. And it looks like it’s doing some good for my Rottweilers skin too.

    Quality Good - Taste is not for my pup

    By Ammg on Aug 20, 2019

    When switching dog food, I understand it is best to do so gradually. At the beginning, only 25% of his food in take was Instinct so he ate it. However, when we got to the point of 75%, he fought me to eat his food. I added incentives like wet food. They worked for one feeding and the next time he was back to fighting me. Finally, I gave him 100% his old food and he ate it right up! So clearly, not for my pup.
