When I first opened the bag, I noticed that it did not have that strong dog food scent that most dog foods I've purchased for my dogs have. It actually smells kind of good, to where I would almost be brave enough to taste it. Second, the kibble size is perfect for my golden retriever puppy. Not too big or small, and it perfect for training treats. In the morning before feeding my dogs in their bowl, I usually let them earn their meal through training, and these are perfectly sized and tasty enough to use for that. The outer layer seems almost coated, so you don't get kibble crumbs in your hand and into your fingertips. Third, and most importantly- It's really good for your dog! Prior to buying our new puppy, I did a lot of research (as a good prospective dog owner should) on raising a healthy dog. One of the biggest things that stuck with me was that you WILL pay for your dogs' health- either in the form of good dog food, or in the form of a vet bill.
Gracie, my 4 year old teacup Yorkie is another rescue who has her share of health problems. She's less than 2 lbs, so I want to make sure that what she eats is good for her. She IS a picky eater, but she took to the Instinct Raw immediately. She's been on it for about a month now. She used to have issues with dry, flaky skin, but now it's excellent.
All in all, this food is well worth the money.
They are small patties that can be eaten frozen or thawed and as a treat or meal. I love that the raw-food fad is running over into the pet area, however I wish it weren't so pricey! If you're looking to switch your dog to a raw-food diet, I recommend finding your local butcher to procure meats instead of buying this product. But if you're looking for a treat - these are great and super easy to dole out!
