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 (4 oz patties per day):

Dog WeightAdult Maintenance (patties)Weight Loss (patties)
5 - 15 lbs1 - 21/2 - 1
16 - 25 lbs2 - 31 - 2
26 - 50 lbs3 - 52 - 3
51 - 75 lbs5 - 63 - 4

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. Patties 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

LEAD WITH RAW

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.

KEEP IT REAL

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

MAKE IT SIMPLE

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.

DO IT TOGETHER

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.

MAKE IT BETTER

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.

    Instinct Raw

    By on

    I love Instinct and so do my girls. I do have to say that as it gets to the bottom of the bag it becomes ones big mound of meat. Bonus getting on auto ship it is $15.00 cheaper than my local pet store!!

    Love this!

    By on

    Zelda is a 7 month Golden, and she LOVES this. We have her on Instinct Puppy with the raw bits in it, and I just wanted to get her a little something else to make dinner time extra special. We used to do Top canine cans, half mixed in, but she seems to love these just as much! We just use a little container, and defrost her dinner the night before.

    Nice product.

    By on

    I did not read the description very well when I purchased it and was bit surprised when this showed up in a box with dry ice in it. I thought I bought dry patties. Being big on recycling, it is a lot of packaging for on bag of dog food...however, my dog LOVES these. I keep them in my freezer, heat up one patty for 1 min. in the microwave and add some warm water to it. Each patty is pretty pig, so I don't have to add much else to his food. I think I might buy this again!

    Great, but too expensive for 60 pound dog

    By on

    We always wanted to feed raw food, but for a 60 pound puppy, the bag would only last 5 days. Instead we give two patties every morning and give dry food for other meals. Wish we could do fully raw food, but the cost is too high.

    Dogs, Love, Love, Love this food!

    By on

    Starting feeding my dogs' Instinct raw in conjunction with some dry food. I highly recommend you do this They love it! It can be a little pricey, but well worth the cost. They have more energy, their fur is shiny and soft and I noticed a significant change in their body odor.

    Happy to see frozen raw again!

    By on

    Our GSD eats only Instinct Frozen Raw Chicken. Chewy delivers quickly and packages the food in dry ice to maintain its frozen state. And it’s priced less than my local pet stores! Chewy is the best!
