Questions & Answers

15 Customer Questions


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.

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.

Is there no taurine in this recipe ?
Answer by ChewyFeb 12, 2022
This food does not have added taurine, but taurine occurs naturally in some of the ingredients.

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.

Inconsistent

This is our second bag for our new Maltese puppy and while he loved eating the first bag, he is not very enthusiastic about the second order. I think the amount of freeze-dried raw pieces in this bag are almost non-existent. So the contents of this food is inconsistent. We are going to switch to NOW brand and see if he likes it bettwr

Our Yorkies' Favorite

This is the most expensive kibble we feed our Yorkies out of the 14 different varieties we cycle daily between two different bowls, but worth it. There is a generous portion of chicken bits in the bag. To keep the little ones from hogging the chicken bits, I break the pieces up into the kibble - they are soft and easy to break up. Of all the premium small/toy breed foods we fee our little ones, this is their favorite.

Yummy raw pieces

Kip LOVES the raw pieces in his Instinct kibble. Switching to this brand has made a huge difference in his tear stains when compared to the food he ate with his previous owner.

Instinct Dog Food

My Yorkie has been eating Instinct food since he was a puppy at the breeder's recommendation. He first was fed the Raw frozen patties, heated in the microwave. I feed him dry kibble, plus raw. I also get a bag of the raw boost mixers and he comes running when he hears me opening the bag. He'll always eat those pieces first. He's a grazer over hours, not a gulper of his meals.

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.
