Instinct by Nature's Variety Frozen Raw Bites Grain-Free Dog Food #Review #ChewyInfluenser

Disclosure: The writer received a product for free from Chewy as a condition of this publication. Regardless, all the opinions are those of the writer. 


A couple of months ago I transitioned my dogs to a raw diet to see if it would help with their allergies. I used freeze dried nibs for the first couple of months, this month I decided to try Instinct by Nature's Variety Frozen Raw Bites Grain-Free Dog Food to see if my little fur babies would like it. I have always believed that variety is the spice of life so I like giving my pets some different food options just to see what each pet likes better. 
I ordered the Small Breed size in the Natural Beef Flavor. Since both dogs have already been on a raw diet I did the transition a couple of days faster than the recommended 5-7 days. If they would have shown any stomach distress I would have take more time to changeover.



Since the food is frozen, not cooked, with cold-pressure processing, it has to remain so for the amount of time it takes to get to its destination, Chewy had the dog food sent in a box surrounded by styrofoam and dry ice. By the time I received it one of the dry ice packets had a little of the ice melted while the second packet was still intact. Considering our hot Arizona temperatures I was impressed with the frozen delivery.

Greenies Grain-Free Petite Dental Dog Treats #Review #ChewyInfluencer

  Greenies Grain-Free Petite Dental Dog Treats
This month the focus is going to be on Redford's teeth and Greenies Dental Treats. Red's teeth were undeniably not the cleanest when we rescued him two and a half years ago, while he was assumed to be only around four years of age his teeth seemed to be like those of a much older dog. We did see an significant decrease in tartar on his teeth once we started giving him Greenies Dental Treats every day. Redford weighed 15 lbs when we first got him so we just gave him the teenie size along with Trixie due to their recommended weight allowance of 5-15 lbs.  Well, he now weighs 25 lbs so we decided to start giving him the  Petite size for dogs that weigh between 15 and 25 lbs.  



Greenies are dental treats that clean dogs teeth, help to maintain healthy gums plus and removes tartar and plaque, they don't contain artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and are grain free which coincides with their raw diet, the highly soluble ingredients includes vitamins and minerals making them easily digestible and more nutritive plus the best thing of all is that these treats seriously help to freshen their breath!
