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

  • Your dog may become picky!

    By on

    I love these... I feel like they give my dog some variety and more of a “raw” protein than his dry food. They’re also easy to pour out a few each time into his bowl straight from the bag; we used to get the ‘medallions’ version of these but got tired of defrosting them. My dog also likes these a little bit too much because he’s picked up a habit of just eating these bites & leaving his dry food behind. I’ve learned to be less generous with the amount of bites he gets and he’ll usually come back for his dry food later on...

  • Dog loves these!!!

    By on

    Perfect!!! I pour a couple of these in a bowl and just let them sit in the fridge overnight to thaw along with Tylees (her other favorite) My pupper is older and missing a lot of her teeth and she's able to somewhat mush them in her mouth and eat. I don't even have to beg her to eat unlike other foods we've tried lol she just does.

  • Loved By Cats Too

    My dogs loved trying this as a meal topper/mix in and licked their bowls clean. My cats also loved tasting them and eating a couple of them with their meals.

  • I forgot how much lamb smells

    By on

    This choice was not a good one. I was thinking something new and different would b good to mix things up. But my fur pups don't seem to like it so much. Maybe it's just too rich for their taste. Tried giving it a few times but they just snub there noses at it for some reason. I may just have to give away the frozen bag of lamb.

  • We love instinct

    My pups have been on instinct since they were babies and they LOVE their raw. One of them has chicken and beef allergies and instinct has several flavors where we never have to have any chicken or beef as an ingredient in their dog food.

  • Two happy pups

    By on

    It is sometimes hard to get my pup Shilo to eat. I put a few pieces (5-7) in their kibble and watched them devour their entire bowl! I never handled anything raw before but it's been so easy to add this to their food.

  • Best decision I ever made

    By on

    Switching my animals to a raw diet was the best decision I could have made. I tried making it myself but it was so time consuming so this was a better option for me. And even though its more expensive, it's worth it!

  • The Best of the best!

    By on

    My finikey little girl loves Instinct Raw. Lamb is her favorite but she likes duck and rabbit too! Wish you carried all of these in the bits size. The service is excellent and fast from Chewy.

  • My pets loved it

    By on

    My dogs really enjoyed this food. Will keep buying the bite size as the medallions are a bit big for my little guys. They can wait for the food to get put down now!
