Instinct Original Grain-Free Formulas for Dogs

What are the components of superior pet nutrition?

We believe superior nutrition for dogs starts with healthy, natural ingredients. This means high quality animal proteins like meat, poultry, and fish should make up the majority of your dog's diet. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are also beneficial, providing many vital nutrients for your dog's health and well-being.

Why Grain-Free?

A dog's natural diet is high in meat, poultry, and fish protein and low in carbohydrates. Instinctive nutrition helps dogs thrive, nourishing muscles and building strong bones..

Directions
Optimal feeding amounts vary with weight, age, size, and activity level, so the guide below should be used as an initial recommendation only. Be sure to reduce your dog’s daily food intake based on the calories consumed through treats and supplements. And always remember, regular activity is an important part of your dog’s overall, healthy lifestyle. Daily Feeding Guidelines (Cups*): Adult Maintenance: 5-15lbs – ½-1 cup, 16-25lbs – 1-1 ½ cups, 26-50 lbs - 1 ½ - 2 ¾ cups, 51-100 lbs – 2 ¾ - 4 ¼ cups. Weight Loss: 5-15lbs – ¼ - ¾ cups, 16-25lbs – ¾ - 1 cup, 26-50 lbs – 1 – 1 ¾ cups, 51-100lbs – 1 ¾ - 2 ¾ cups. Puppies: Feed up to twice the adult maintenance amount shown above. Pregnant or Nursing Females: Feed up to three times the adult maintenance amount shown above. Sudden changes in diet can sometimes result in digestive disturbances. Overfeeding is a common cause of digestive upset. Do not overfeed regardless of your pet’s acceptance and eagerness. Always introduce any new diet over a period of 5 to 7 days, mixing increasing amounts with the present diet. Keep fresh water available at all times and offer plenty of exercise.

I have tried several brands of dog food, one of the most recent Taste of the Wild (until my sensitive & picky lab/collie didn't want to eat it anymore! Which was probably only 2 bags in, even after switching the main meat ingredients). Nature's Variety Instinct has worked out very well for my dog. She always eats with gusto and she is three bags in! All chicken. It's amazing. She has a beautiful coat and never complains when it's dinner time. Her stool is hard like it should be, she hasn't had soft stool for a very long time. Supposedly it says that it is created so that you can switch between dog foods without much problems, so first I will switch it up to by the Turkey & Duck formula to see how that goes. Definitely worth the price, especially since the Chicken is the most economical to start out with if you want to test it out with your dog. I don't know what other reviewers are saying about the smell of the dog food, it isn't bad/strong at all considering other brands.

The dog food was well packaged and arrived in very good condition. My German Shepherd dog loves this food and it is also good for his sensitive stomach.

Great food for my awesome and beloved 90lb + lab mix and best price anywhere via subscribe and save. Feeding this guy can get pretty expensive, but this food is an excellent value for top-notch kibble. We supplement with high-quality wet food, homemade stock (grass-fed beef bone and chicken feet) and quality fresh meat, veggies and wild game. We go through about one bag a month for the big guy. We highly recommend spending $ on quality food for your animals, or you'll be spending even more $$$ on vet bills down the road.

My dog loves this and she does well while eating. May take a little transition time if coming off a grain packed food so take it easy at first.

This is the 'new' version of this food, the former had freeze dried, raw food bits in it that you could see. This one is supposed to have a coating of this freeze dried, raw food, supposedly on/around the kibble itself.

The problem is that the kibble in this new formulation looks identical to the kibble in the old... Exactly the same. I went so far as to get out a magnifying glass and break some of the old and new kibble in half for comparison to see if there was any difference -- I could find none. So, it appears that all Nature's Variety has done is remove the raw food bits and called it new?

I'm not saying the raw food "coating" isn't there, I'm saying that unless they've somehow managed to make this coating invisible even under magnification; and, have somehow managed to get it on the kibble without increasing the kibble's diameter/size, that it *APPEARS* that the only thing they've done is remove the freeze dried, raw food entirely and are selling the kibble only as the same food (but as a new formulation).

I'm happy to change the review/rating should someone who knows something I might be missing correct me here.

I hesitate to give this dog food any score in stars, not wanting to mislead anyone.

I am assigning four stars because the dog seemed to like the taste, BUT, I am Not sure if it is the "right" food for my GSP.
While feeding her this dog food, the consistency of her stools was unusually loose with no form.

We have switched back to Iams brand food, and her stools have returned to their normal consistency.

Used to buy this for my dogs regularly until I saw on their website they actually test on animals in testing facilities. They claim they wouldn't do anything to those animals they wouldn't do their own pets but would they keep their pets locked up in testing facilities? I don't think so. Switched to another brand who doesn't test on animals. Too bad bc I thought I had found the perfect food for my dog with Instinct.

Other dog foods with grain have given my dog allergies. My dog seems to really like Instinct and she doesn't get any bad reactions from it. As far as I can tell it is very nutritious and is reviewed well online. It is made in the USA and the price is good. I also like that they have matching wet food and treats so I can change it up and not worry about my dog getting an upset stomach.
