42%


And when I get it, I'm going to add water to it because the ash content in their food is too high for my liking.

The ash is high for this particular food or for all of their food? Would it be okay to mix the Instinct with the regular NV?

The Instincts has a high ash content.
But if you add water to the kibble, it won't matter how high the ash content is, really. Water will break it down.

THANKS GUYS!!

Tima with all her issues will be trying the rabbit. We are a-ok with salmon and de-proteined chicken fat so we'll have to see about tapioca and the rabbit etc.

Wish us luck!...hope the coupon works here in Canada !

D'oh!!
Yes, the new formulas are 35%! hahahaha, someone had started talking about the chicken based Instincts formula, so I was on that page. heh.

Yeah the lower protein is what is attracting me to the new formulas. That and I haven't come across a rabbit kibble before. :))

:sad: I looked for rabbit, but the only store that carries Instinct in the area (w.in 20 miles) didn't even know they had come out with the new formula.

That's what the lady at my local doggy food store said when I called about it!
hahaha. She didn't even know about it until she looked for me while I was on the phone with her.
She left a note for the owner and she's going to have the owner contact me about ordering a bag for me.

I went to a Pet Supplies Plus store today and they had it! I was shocked! I was even more shocked to see they are carrying Merrick and TW too!

So was I! That's where I got the NV for Ems...just not the new formulas. Maybe mine will get it soon, I was WICKED surprised to see Merrick and TW as well...guess I'll have to go there more often!

Has anyone tried the Instinct yet? I wasn't near the Pet Supplies Plus and the store I went to, ran out of the Instinct.
