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

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.

    Oreo and Chewie Approved!

    By on

    I got this mainly for Chewie because he has dry skin. I also got the Chicken version of this (which they have had before and love). I started giving a little bit of both to my boys for about 2 weeks now and Chewie's coat looks much better. It doesn't look like he has dandruff! They both love the taste so much that they nose and paw around their food and eat up the Mixers first! Definitely a sound investment!

    Interesting for one minute!

    By on

    When I first put down a few nuggets of this raw food, my older cat Buddy seemed intrigued and wolfed them down. Now, not so much. I now add just a few but he leaves them alone. I think I'll take them away totally for a week or so to see if he has renewed interest. Maybe leaving them in the bowl dries them out and makes them less tasty??

    Very Happy!

    By on

    My two cat's love the "Mixers". I started giving them a few for treats. Now they want more all the time. Feel like I give them something good as treats. Most treats have to many bad fillers.

    A curious find, and my boys love it!

    By on

    I was looking for a food topper and thought I would try this. My boys had to do the "curious find" sniff first, but then they ate it and will eat these first when I top off their dry food with it.

    Works well for skin and coat

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Since I started adding this to my cats diet, his coat has been super shiny and soft. I love that Instinct made functional food toppers as I can't buy any of their functional food because I have three bags of original kibble to go through! He only needs to eat one or two of these to get his soft coat, even though there is a recommended amount. He doesn't LOVE these but he'll eat them and that says a lot!

    My Cats Do Not Like As Well As The Other Mixer

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I was hoping my cats would like these because they love the other mixers, but they crinkle up their noses at these.

    Cat doesn't like these

    By on

    He just doesn't like them. They go into his belly at some point when the dry food bowl gets emptier. But he used to race to the bowl, and now he goes there sniffs it, and leaves. Will come back later and eat because he's hungry.
