Feeding Instructions

Ideal feeding amounts will vary by age, weight, and activity level so the guide below should be used as an initial recommendation.

Daily Feeding Guidelines (1 oz medallions per day):

Dog Weight Adult Maintenance (medallions) Weight Loss (medallions)
5 - 15 lbs 4 - 8 2 - 5
16 - 25 lbs 8 - 12 5 - 7
26 - 50 lbs 12 - 18 7 - 12
51 lbs + 18 + 12 +

For puppies (except large breed [70+lbs as an adult]), feed up to twice the adult maintenance amount. For pregnant and nursing females, feed up to three times the adult maintenance amount. Visit the Instinct Pet Food website for more specific feeding recommendations.

Handling Tips:

  • Keep frozen until ready to use. Defrost your pet's daily portion by thawing it in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight or for approximately 4 to 6 hours. Medallions should be cold to the touch when served.

  • Wash hands, working surfaces, utensils, bowls and any other items that come in contact with raw meat or poultry with hot, soapy water.

  • If your pet does not consume all the food presented within 30 minutes, discard any leftovers.

  • Keep package sealed to maintain freshness.

Transition Instructions

Always introduce a new food over a period of 5 to 7 days, mixing increasing amounts of Instinct with the current food each day.

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

    This is the first time I used Chewy for frozen raw dog foods. I am impressed! Product arrived in a timely fashion and was packaged in dry ice & frozen solid. As for the product itself, my dogs love these meat medallions! I've used them for years as an added extra treat, which gets promptly woofed down. I'm leaning more and more towards a raw diet and this helps them get the nutrients they need.

    I use this as a topper along with her venison kibble raw from instinct also and she loves it!!! Finishes it right up. My dog has had digestion problems in the past with other brand dog foods so I have to be real careful with what I feed her but for a while now she's doing real well with instinct. Highly recommend!

  • My dogs haunted the fridge for this stuff!

    By on

    Got some as a treat / topper for their kibble - they loved this stuff! I have a Golden Retriever and a very large German Shepherd mix. At mealtime they planted themselves by the fridge and Duke the Shepherd would try to stick his whole giant head in the fridge looking for that ‘good stuff’ if I took too long! I had to put the food in a fridge drawer to keep his giant nose from finding the bag! I will say that you should KEEP the product frozen, the last half of the bag was smushed- not that the dogs cared - but I had to cut a corner off and squeeze it out like toothpaste!

  • My giant Lab loves it!

    By on

    I mix this in my lab's kibble and he loves it! He seems to have a reaction to certain kinds of food, so I am always experimenting with various brands and types in an effort to figure out his sensitivities. I love Chewy! Their variety of offerings makes the process easier.

  • Dogs go nuts!!!

    By on

    My dogs absolutely love this food! I can’t think of another food they’ve ever eaten this much of at one time. They’re usually pretty picky eaters and take a few bites at a time throughout the day, but this they ate their whole bowl at once.

  • Best food for dogs!!!

    By on

    My 8 year old cairn terrier has had allergies for years. I've had him on Instinct Raw for 6 years and he has very little reaction during allergy season. Would not feed him anything else.
