They are on a mission to transform the lives of pets and make it possible for more people to feed their own pets the pure, real nutrition that only comes from raw.

Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw
in Every Recipe

Instinct is on a mission to transform the lives of pets through the pure, real nutrition of raw. Their belief in the power of raw inspires every food they make. Instinct has carefully crafted their foods to provide easy ways to incorporate raw into your pet's diet.

Real meats, whole fruits and vegetables and turmeric are a few of the ingredients Instinct uses to provide naturally derived nutrients and enzymes for overall wellness.

The Mindful Choices Instinct Makes

Every Instinct recipe shows the careful, deliberate approach they take in crafting their food. They use only real ingredients, and you'll never find artificial colors, flavors or preservatives or fillers like corn, wheat or soy.


Naturally freeze-dried to lock in nutrients and taste without the use of chemicals or additives.


Provides beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids to promote healthy skin and a shiny coat.


An all-natural hypoallergenic starch that is highly digestible, grain-free and gluten-free.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Healthy dog food The only reason I gave a 4 star rating instead of 5 stars, is because my dog can be very picky! She eats this better than any other dry dog food, but I still have to put a little incentive treat on top to get her started. July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best brand I've tried I have 3 dogs- 13 yo Yorkie, 11 yo Pug, and a Pug puppy. I started out feeding the older dogs Royal Canin thinking that it was high quality food. As my Pug aged she developed hot spots and yeast in her folds. Since switching over to this food a couple of years ago, my dogs' have seemed much healthier overall. The Pug still can have an occasional issue with ears and face but very rarely. Also both hers and the Yorkie's coat stopped getting what I'd call dog dandruff. My Yorkie's skin on her stomach also stopped developing dry patches. My puppy has had no issues either so I even suggested to the breeder to switch the parents over because they both have allergies. I would definitely recommend giving this a try. I certainly didn't believe this food was necessarily going to be the "one" after trying some other expensive brands, but it is for them. I'm completely satisfied with this product and Chewy does have the best price. January 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great ingredients! My mini dachshund loves this food especially the Raw bits!!! He will pick through the food to eat those bits first!! May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product! quality food leaves shiny soft coat little elimination! May 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This is one of the top two dog foods available right now on the market. The price may throw you off a bit but it's well worth it. My pup eats the entire dish happily with no stomach issues later! May 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome food My dog was having a hard time with itchy skin and eating other non-grain food. I tried Instinct Raw Boost and he went nuts for it! He gobbled it down the second I put it down. He's finally put some weight on and his skin is getting better and he's itching less and less every day. I'm glad we've found a food that he enjoys eating. His breed isn't known for overeating, so he does typically leave some in his bowl, lol, but that's better than not eating at all. April 24, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not sure this is a fair statement Our picky dog would not even consider eating this. I do not mean this to say that the product is not good. We have the world's pickiest dog. We have tried at least 9 or 10 dog foods. We have tried canned, raw, freeze dried, home cooked per an Internal doctor's recipe. Our dog simply refuses to eat. Don't say when she gets hungry enough because she went six day without eating and we gave her some of our meat. I understand from others this is a very good dog food. April 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product My bulldog loves this product! it helped him with his allergies and tear stain. The only reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because his stool has become very soft :( I really want to give it more time to see if it settles in his tummy as we have seen so many good changes on him with this food.
