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 (standard 8 oz dry measure cup):

Dog Weight Adult Maintenance (cups) Weight Loss (cups)
5 - 15 lbs 1 - 2 1/2 - 1 1/4
16 - 25 lbs 2 - 2 3/4 1 1/4 - 1 1/2

Handling Tips:

  • Keep frozen until your pet's mealtime. Bites thaw in minutes and 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.

  • Shipping Frozen Pet Food worked great!

    By on

    My Schnauzer has renal disease and it is not easy to find a food she will eat. I already knew this frozen raw chicken recipe dog food is what she likes. Now I know I can order it from Chewy and it will be delivered packed in dry ice. No problem. So convenient!

    Was so very impressed that the frozen food wasn't a big block--like it is in the freezers of most pet food stores. The pieces were all individual--so impressed!! Great shipping department!!!

  • Still have a full bag in the freezer

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I've been wanting to switch my dog over to a raw diet for quite awhile so when I saw this was available on chewy, I jumped at the chance to be able to order online and have a pre-ground raw food delivered right to our door and even more excited that I just pull some out of the bag whenever it's time to feed. No prep work needed! The first bag apparently got lost in the mail or there was some kind of mix up with shipping but as always Chewy made it right and shipped out a whole new order for me. The only problem is, my dog won't touch it and he LOVES raw chicken. I give him some raw every time I'm cooking chicken for the family (which is several times a week) so I'm not quite sure why he turns I've been wanting to switch my dog over to a raw diet for quite awhile so when I saw this was available on chewy, I jumped at the chance to be able to order online and have a pre-ground raw food delivered right to our door and even more excited that I just pull some out of the bag whenever it's time to feed.

  • So far so good

    By on

    Recently bought this for my picky senior chihuahua (12 years). She's extremely picky that she will not eat her food for 2-3 days! I've probably switched her foods 5 times already in the last 2 years that I have had her (benefull, simply nourish, blue buffalo, pristine, organix and even ollie cooked dog food) all varying from dry food and wet food and meal toppers. I've been feeding her this for a month now and she licks her bowl clean.

  • my dog loves this and it's good for him!

    By on

    The only thing that throws me off with this frozen raw food is the color.....i've used many brands of raw food and they all ooze blood as one would expect w raw meat.....all these Instinct ones are a icky grey color. As a vegetarian, I don't mind that part. I wish it was 90 percent meat and organs but the price is right and I like not leaving my house. Also it takes an hour to defrost on the counter! they say feed right away but it's frozen solid for an hour....i'm not trying to feed my dog a bowl of frozen meat.

  • My puppy LOVES it.

    By on

    My 8 week GSD had unhealthy looking stools when I first picked her up, but after I mixed half this food with half "The Honest Kitchen Grain-Free Chicken Recipe Dehydrated Dog Food" - not only did she LOVE it and gobble it all up and wanted more, but within a day her stools looked noticeably better. I bought a very small bag to try it from PetSmart, but will likely buy these bigger bags from Chewy, cause my puppy loves them. You don't have to have them sit to thaw for forever either. Just let them sit out for a couple minutes, and I mix it with her other food with a fork.
