*Instinct Raw Boost Kibble Chicken Meal Formula was selected as the recipe for this ingredient list
We give Instinct dog food a whopping five stars for its protein-rich, vitamin-packed dog food formulas that contain no allergens, chemicals, artificial colors or preservatives. When you look at the ingredient list on any of the dry or wet Instinct dog food formulas, it is clear that protein makes up the bulk of the blends. Natural beef, chicken, lamb and organ meat provides dogs with the proteins they need for health and vitality, as well B-vitamins and minerals. The formulas also contain flaxseed and salmon oil for omega-3 fatty acids, fruits and vegetables for vitamins, fiber and minerals, and inulin, a prebiotic that aids in maintaining a healthy digestive tract. We also like that the formulas do not contain allergens such as wheat, corn or soy, and that there are no unnecessary fillers. We highly recommend Instinct brand dog food to pet owners with dogs of all breeds and ages.
The response to Instinct dog food has been overwhelmingly positive. The majority of dog owners find that the food looks and smells good, and that their dogs eat up both the dry and wet formulas without complaints. Many people like the fact that the food is made of 95% real meat, and that it contains no allergens like corn, wheat or soy. For this reason, many dog owners who have dogs with allergies and sensitive stomachs have reported that their pets have fewer health problems after switching to this brand. A number of pet owners also claim that their underweight dogs have put on weight on an Instinct diet, and that these same dogs develop glossy coats, bright eyes and boundless energy. If customer reviews are anything to go by, Instinct dog food is a clear contender for one of the most high-quality and nutritious dog foods on the market.
The company who makes Instinct dog food is owned by Nature’s Variety. Nature’s Variety is an independently owned, small pet food company that is based in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Nature’s Variety has had a couple of voluntary recalls: Feb. 2013, Nature’s Variety had a recall of one batch of Instinct Raw Organic Chicken Formula due to pieces of plastic that were found in the food. More details here: http://networkedblogs.com/Ikeeu
