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.
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..

DirectionsOptimal 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.

The bad: I do wish that the food wasn't so expensive, but do feel the quality and taste is worth paying more than the mainstream lines of food. Some money could be saved by buying bulk, but I don't want to risk the food losing freshness.
The bottom line: I absolutely recommend this food to dog owners who care about what they feed their dogs.
I used to feed them the Costco store brand that was labeled as premium. They were never that enthusiastic about that or any dog food but I thought that was normal. Now seeing how much they can actually like a kibble, I know better. Also one of the dogs had an eczema like skin condition on his hind leg and tummy last year that wouldn't clear up from topical remedies, but after a couple of months on this super premium food it went away completely. Good quality food is the best medicine.
No digestive problems, practically no gas, firm stools, they're all three doing very well on this, they are diverse breeds and sizes, a 12 years shepherd/ terrier mix, 11 years beagle/ blue heeler mix, and 10 years cavalier king charles spaniel. We keep a restaurant supply airtight 12qt tub of this kibble in the kitchen for feedings, and the rest of the bag gets folded down and place in a ziploc giant bag and put in the deep freeze to prevent oxidation. We use stainless food and water bowls that are washed daily.
