Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions


How many cups are in an 18lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJul 14, 2019
There will be approximately 4 cups of kibble per pound. The 4 pound bag will have close to 16 cups and the 18 pound bag close to 72 cups.

Firstly, does this formula have adequate benefits for joint health and if so, is this formula completed and balanced?
Answer by ChewyMay 28, 2019
Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Recipe with Real Chicken for Skin & Coat is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for maintenance and to help promote healthy skin and a lustrous coat.

What's the ratio of kibble to freeze dried raw pieces? Or how many ounces of freeze dried raw pieces are in the 18lb bag?
Answer by ChewyAug 11, 2021
Within the 18-20 pound kibble bags, you should expect to get about the equivalent amount of a large bag of Mixers, which is 14 ounces. Within the 4 pound kibble bags, you should expect to get about the equivalent amount of a small bag of Mixers, which is 6 ounces.

Does kibble and raw food need to be stored a certain way? I never fed my dogs anything raw, but would like to introduce it to them to see if they like it.
Answer by ChewyAug 22, 2019
This particular dog food does not need to be stored a certain way. You can store this in a container or leave inside of the bag. An unopened bag of kibble is good for up to 18 months, keeping in mind not to exceed the printed expiration date. After opening, our kibble will stay fresh for about 2-3 months as long as it’s resealed between feedings.

Tyler loves this food!

Tyler can be very. picky but he loves this food. He generally starts rejecting a food within the first week but we are at week 3 and he is still enjoying this food. It is also helping with his itchy skin.. Very pleased!

How I wish my dogs would love this!

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. Would I try this brand again? Yes, but just a different flavor. Like I said, I love the ingredients that Instinct uses for their dog food, but this bag was sadly a miss.

My boy loves it

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

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.

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!

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!

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

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.
