Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

They put the pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece of Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet by tumbling their kibble with crushed, freeze-dried raw—raising the bar in nutrition and taste.

The Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw Is In Everything Instinct Does

Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand

LEAD WITH RAW

It all started with Instinct's raw pet food. Since the beginning, they've led with raw because they know the good it can do. They're rewriting the rules of pet food and championing raw nutrition to bring its superior benefits to all that they do.

KEEP IT REAL

Delicious and nutritious pet food should only use real ingredients. For Instinct, this means all-natural, real meat, fruits and vegetables, with nothing artificial.

MAKE IT SIMPLE

Feeding raw should be simple, and it should easily fit into your everyday routine. Instinct believes raw should be accessible to pet parents so every pet can experience the benefits of raw nutrition.

GIVE BACK

Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with Best Friends Animal Society, they're furthering the no-kill movement and their shared mission of transforming and saving the lives of pets.

MAKE IT BETTER

Instinct has never been afraid to challenge the status quo of pet nutrition. They continuously redefine what better means—always pushing their standards of nutrition to raise the bar in pet food.

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

ONE MILLION MEALS

All pets deserve food that's real, nutrient-rich, grain-free and natural. That's why Instinct provides over one million meals annually to the dogs and cats at Best Friends Animal Society adoption centers nationwide. Because what we feed them can make all the difference. Here "we" refers to the pet parent, not Instinct.

About Instinct

Instinct believes deeply that it's up to them to find a way to make it possible for more people to feed their pets the pure, real nutrition that only comes from raw. They know that if they can get the nutrition of raw into more bowls, they'll transform the lives of more pets. And that's really why they do what they do.

  • So far so good

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    Dogs really like this food, read reviews on line it said that it contains a really good amount of named meat sources. I was looking for a food from a good company without a lot of fillers that my dogs do not need and I found it.

  • Even our cat loves this dog food!

    By on

    We have two mini-Aussies who have non-stop GI issues & are incredibly finicky. They LOVE this food, tolerate it well, and even our finicky cat pushes her way in, to eat from the dogs' food bowls because this kibble is so tasty! Only issue is the fat calorie content. If your fur babies are not highly active, they will put on weight very quickly with this food, so portion control is a must! Excellent kibble... 5 STARS!!!

  • Not what it used to be

    By on

    Sad what has happened to instinct. It used to be my favorite food. Not they put peas in as a major ingredient (which means less meat) and they keep the price high but theres 5# less in their biggest bags. 8 years ago i considers instinct the best of the best but now just another clown feed that adds peas so they can save money on meat

  • Great for me and helps with my tears!

    By on

    First I need to thank Chewy for the excellent service! Waited until she ate the first bag of food before writing this review. My Shih Tzu loves it and I do too. She weighs almost 10 lbs, this food has helped with the tears, not so many anymore. Her poops are normal size and regular.

  • Very good quality

    Rocky is my fur baby. He's a mini schnauzer and for those familiar with the breed they far more often than not predisposed to allergies. Well unfortunately my Rocky licks his feet. For the longest time I had no idea what it was from. I took him to the vet, no lesions. Paid 1,000's of dollars in allergy testing and come to find out he is allergic to a lot of things. Now I have to be very careful and triple check ingredients in anything I feed him. I came across this food and wanted to give it a try. It is high quality and free of the things Rocky is allergic to and he loves it! Very happy with this food for my fur baby and recommend it as well!

  • Ingredients have Changed (Not as good as before)

    By on

    This product use to be very good...They recently changed the packaging size (smaller bags for more money) and replaced some quality ingredients for cheaper less quality ingredients. I was feeding a mix of this food and ACANA. I will let this one go and stick with ACANA.
