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

Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand


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.


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


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.


Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with local shelters and volunteer efforts nationwide we’re on a mission to transform the lives of all pets.


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

    I rarely review things....

    By on

    These things must be crack to my cat! He has become VERY picky about his food. I bought these, but was sure it would be another bag of wasted money. He drives me crazy for them. As opposed to a topper I give them to him as treats. He bugs me for them constantly! Another plus.... he is a chronic hair ball barfer... no more!! He had one instance the second day I gave them to him. Now he does not throw-up at all. I’m thrilled and so is he!! Yea INSTINCT! (I also feed him the instinct with Raw boost for indoor cats.)

    Great food for constipated cat and cat with stinky poop!

    By on

    I have 5 cats. 1 has constipation issue and 2 have stinky poops. (Their poop smell so bad!) This food is miracle! My constipated cat is pooping well since I started feeding him this food every day. And for some reasons, the smell of my cats' poops reduced so much!! The most importantly all my cats love this!! I just got the 2nd bag. Highly recommended!

    Sick cat now eats food

    By on

    My cat wasn't eating until I started to crumble this on top of his prescription food for kidney disease. It does contain protein, but I am of the opinion he needed some in his diet as he was losing too much muscle mass. His back legs don't seem as weak now.

    Made one of my cat puke :(

    By on

    I have bought the other raw booster and both my cats loved it. I thought I would try this one since my other cat has problem digesting food. Unfortunately she ends up puking her food after she had these. My other cat is fine.

    Meh. 1/3 liked.

    By on

    We got these hoping to help all three cats with tummy upset due to emotions. I have no idea if it worked as Bruno and Smeagol wouldn't touch it, and Maleficent (who will eat pretty much ANYTHING!) walked away and only ate it after she was sure she'd never get to eat anything again (AKA, ten minutes before mealtime) These seem like fancy 'marketing' to humans over what a cat would want to eat.

    My kittens LOVE these

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I bought these to help entice my picky kittens to eat their dry food - I've been crumbling 3-4 of them into the dry food and then mixing it up and it definitely helps them eat their dry food better. They also love to be given 1-2 as a treat. I do think that if I give them too many they get diarrhea, so maybe be cautious to not overfeed. I will be trying the regular version of these next since they are slightly cheaper.

    Peter & Bruce approved

    By on

    I purchased these treats because I have one cat that eats quickly and fails to chew properly, paired with the other cat that vomits from eating too quickly. Essentially, I needed the eating patterns to change for several reasons, in addition to aiding digestive issues. These treats have so far done the trick and their ingredients are natural. My cats also really love them!

    Great food for my cat

    By on

    I use it crumbled up on top of my 19 year old cats wet food. I'm glad I bought it but less money for larger size elsewhere.
