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:

For adult dogs, serve 6 ounces for every 15 pounds of body weight.

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. 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.

Visit the Instinct Pet Food website for more specific feeding recommendations and information on how to easily combine different forms of food.

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.

    Great price, pets love it!

    By on

    All of my pets love this food! I had one puppy who loved her kibble so I mixed this in with it and then slowly removed the kibble each feeding. She loves this stuff now! Just make sure you open the box UPSIDE DOWN in order to avoid the dry ice. Not sure why they put the food at the bottom and the dry ice at the top, but if you flip the box over to open it then you will avoid the dry ice altogether. The only ingredient I wish was different is that there are fruits and vegetables instead of adding more meat variety. Wolves are carnivores and dogs are still nearly identical to their DNA, so if you feed them correctly fruits and veggies shouldn't be necessary.

    Smells terrible but dog loves it and once I cut it into portions it’s super easy to feed. My dog eats it in about a minute and licks the bowl.

    Great value Raw Diet

    By on

    I used to feed raw until Bruce, my chocolate lab, decided he didn't want it anymore. I had to switch back to dry food, Orijen. Though Orijen is top notch kibble, I still wanted to give him a much cleaner diet as processed kibble is not the best thing to feed. I ordered 5 lbs of Beef and 10lbs of chicken, and what can I say? Bruce absolutely devours this food. I was skeptical to buy at first, mainly because I don't buy into the commercial raw diets due to steep pricing. However, at 19.99 for 5 lbs of a raw mix in both beef and chicken is a really good deal. I think Bruce is back to eating clean and staying healthy. Thanks Chewy for picking up this item, will continue to buy!

    My dog is not crazy about it

    By on

    I have never seen my dog eat so slow as when I put some of this on top of his homemade dog food mixed with kibble dog food. The package came with 2 holes in it, I saw the one, good thing I had it in a plastic bag while thawing in the frig.

    My dog just loves it!

    By on

    We've tried other raw food brands so far, but this one is not only loved by our dog, it also makes his fur so soft and shiny! I totally recommend it. The only problem I found so far was that it's not divided to portions, so we have to partially unfreeze it, divide it to portions, refreeze some of the portions again and unfreeze them in time (otherwise it'll turn bad).
