How long will a ten pound bag feeding 2 cups per day?
Answer by ChewyMay 13, 2020
4 cups of kibble is approximately 1 lb of food. Therefore, there are about 40 cups of food in this bag, meaning it'll last your little one about 20 days.

Has any research been done concerning the long term effects of dogs ingesting montmorillonite clay, which is one of the ingredients in this food?
Answer by ChewyMar 06, 2018
Montmorillonite clay is a natural anti-caking agent. Using montmorillonite clay as a natural anti-caking ingredient has the additional advantage of providing health benefits. Some studies proved that the clay can be an effective anti-diarrheal and an alternative to other agents which can have serious side-effects.

Do any of the ingredients come from China?
Answer by ChewyApr 24, 2019
Instinct will source most of their ingredients from the U.S. and turn to other locations only when needed. Formulas that contain ingredients such as vitamins, trace nutrients, are sourced from China to ensure supply is guaranteed.

The little white raw pieces in the meal....that are also sold in separate bags by them self.... How many more raw pieces can you safely add a day to the feeding ? As it is what my little dog eats first.
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2018
Add Instinct Raw Boost Mixers to your dog's current food depending on your dog's weight. Remember to reduce the calorie amount of your current food accordingly to avoid overfeeding.

Has anyone else heard of a picky eating dachshund?

Our miniature dachshund has gone through lots of foods and he isn’t even a year old yet. He would take a day and a half to finish his food portion on all the listed foods. When we got him we put him on Blue Buffalo (he hated it, and would spit out the darker bits in It). Then we tried him on Whole Earth Farms, Victor, then Taste of the Wild. All great foods but our little boy just wasn’t food crazy over them and he’s a dachshund!!!! NOW I got him Instinct and he ate ALL of it as soon as I put it in his bowl (I was mind blown)! We have finally found his food of choice after going through so many and can now put a food on auto ship through chewy.

Not What My Littles Were Looking For

Our normal food was not in stock, and I was looking for something different anyhow (for many reasons). Gave this a try and neither one of my mini's will eat it. They take the chicken chews out and spread the tiny kibble all over the kitchen floor. Baby Moses and Ms Molly do not recommend this food. Our search continues...

Great for small breed

My 4 lb. chi loves this food!! The kibble is small so he has no problem eating it. He cleans up the bowl every time. He loves the raw bites, always eats them first. Just all in all very happy with this product.

Right Sized Kibble, Taste I Love

My human has given me Instinct Puppy Food for the past year, which I liked, but always felt like a lot to eat for my 7lb body. Now that I’m a year old, human switched me to this small breed food and it is life changing! The kibble sizes are about half the size of the puppy food which is much easier to chew and human says she’s never seen me eat so well! We will keep buying the small breed mix but may change to the kibble only so that I can try some more of the toppers that I love!

She loves it!

This food smells great. My pup really loves it, she likes to pick out all the little freeze dried pieces and eat those first. it must smell better than the rest. It’s cute.

Tape would have been nice!

Received the box with cat litter and the bag that had a nice big slice from a razor blade on it from side to side.. then packed upside down on the litter to hold the contents in it. The litter box was full of kibble crumbs and the bag of food is still in the box they sent it in. I ended up buying a new bag of dog food at the store and will deal with the box of kibble after the holidays. A little tape would have given this review a five star. My dog loves this food and has no issues with chowing down. Come on Chewy, it takes 03 seconds to tape it up and would have saved me a lot of extra work.

Dachshund crew chows this down!

We’ve had 9 rescue Dachshunds over 20 yrs. we currently have 5 seniors in the house. We gone through dog food, home made food, combined food and at one time had every dog eating a different food. We switched to the small kibble, chicken about a yr ago. Now? Thank you Lord!! All five senior Dachshunds are relishing their 1/4C three times aday!! Dogs lost weight in the first 2 weeks. They have held their individual weights for over a year. We do add warm water to the mix in the winter and cold in the summer. None of them PICK/walk from this food! They LOVE IT!! Ages of our five: 18, 14,13, 11,9. All healthy and livin the dream!!
