1 ANIMAL PROTEIN

1 ANIMAL PROTEIN

The ingredient list is purposefully simple for pets with food sensitivities. It focuses on one animal protein and one vegetable—versus the mix of each you'll find in most pet foods.

SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL

SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL

Sometimes what's not included is just as important as what is. These recipes are made with grass-fed meat or cage-free poultry and always made without grain, dairy, eggs, potato, corn, wheat, soy or artificial ingredients.

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

They put the pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece of Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet by tumbling their kibble with crushed, freeze-dried raw—raising the bar in nutrition and taste.

The Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw Is In Everything Instinct Does

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.

GIVE BACK

Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with Best Friends Animal Society, they're furthering the no-kill movement and their shared mission of transforming and saving the lives of 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

ONE MILLION MEALS

All pets deserve food that's real, nutrient-rich, grain-free and natural. That's why Instinct provides over one million meals annually to the dogs and cats at Best Friends Animal Society adoption centers nationwide. Because what we feed them can make all the difference. Here "we" refers to the pet parent, not Instinct.

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.

His intestinal thickening and associated side effects deminished, but after several weeks he started developing facial Hot Spots and sores. We thought it may be environmental. How could a protein help the insides but have a dermal intolerance? Well, we quit feeding him ZIWI because we werent sure if it was the Venison or the Green Mussels and we went with Instinct Rabbit. So far everything has been good and he loves the taste and texture. Only time will tell if this cures all his problems. I wonder if anyone else has had the same problems with ZIWI.

  • Rabbit only protein

    By on

    Glad the only protein is rabbit. When searching for a rabbit option for my kitties, I kept coming across food that said "rabbit" as the flavor but in the ingredient list also contained chicken, pork, or even sometimes fish. All these other proteins are no good for sensitive tummies or when trying to remedy a digestive issue with a kitty. I do think it's odd that there are peas in this being that it's "limited ingredient" but it's not a deal breaker. If is see whole peas while feeding them, I just fish them out. Kitties and I are happy with this flavor so far.

  • Better for their health

    My dear sweet cat has had lifelong digestive issues. It seems every year to two years we have had to change brands, flavors, textures since she was about three years old. She is now 13. Then my other cat, age 10, also started developing allergy issues. Two years ago we switch to the Core Wellness brand with the advice of elimination of corn, grain, fish, chicken, etc in the food. So the vet recommended duck. We switched and that was working great. Two months ago later the oldest cat developed an issue with it because of the chicken allergy it became an ALL fowl allergy. Now we switched to the Instinct Rabbit Limited Ingredient canned. Both my cats love it. The allergy issues have retreated My dear sweet cat has had lifelong digestive issues.

  • Instinct single source protein

    By on

    We tried this food after researching IBD. Our 10 year cat hadn't eaten in 2 weeks, had severe diarrhea and lost half of his body weight. He appeared near death. Steroids were not helping. He has been stable on single source pure protein now for 4 weeks. He is symptom free and so comfortable. Although we can't predict long term, Instinct 1 has really helped this kitty!

  • Ingredients Have Changed

    By on

    Now there is the addition of"pea protein" where there was none before. I suspect that this is filler. I just purchased two cases for my IBD cat not knowing about the change. IF he has a bad reaction, or does not like it I will complain to Chewy and ask for a refund.

  • This one is a no-go!

    By on

    I have two cats. One eats pretty much anything, the other one is a little picky at times. I ordered this food because of the great reviews. My cats did not touch it. The food itself was rather dry, too. I called Chewy and got a refund. Both cats are 13 years old if anyone is interested in knowing their life-stage.

  • 3 out of 4 cats approve!

    By on

    So I have always liked Nature's Variety as a premium pet food. I've fed my dog the raw patties for over eight years with fantastic results. My cats are not fans of "going raw", so canned food is my second best option. I have four cats and they all have their own quirks with what they like in a canned food. To give a fair review, I purchased cans of the turkey, rabbit, and duck limited ingredient formulas to find out which one my cats might like the best. Hands down the favorite was the rabbit. Three of my cats scarfed it down like voracious lions. The fourth cat is the hardest one to please and he just "buried" it and refused to try it. The duck pleased all four cats but they didn't eat it with So I have always liked Nature's Variety as a premium pet food. I've fed my dog the raw patties for over eight years with fantastic results.

My only wish is the company would just remove the peas. I have to pick them out and they are pointless for cats who are obligate carnivores. … more

  • Wonderful alternative to prescription diets!

    By on

    I am so grateful for this food! I was very hesitant to put my cats on a prescription diet when I found out that one of them had some pretty bad IBD. I was not happy with the quality of the ingredients in the prescription diet and didn't trust the brand. Instinct has been a godsend in offering this. My kitty can be on something safe for his condition, with higher quality ingredients and a brand that I trust more. Sometimes, they put off eating it.... they're not gobbling it down, so I don't think it's their favorite. But they're not refusing it and a lot of his IBD marker values have improved since switching to this food!

  • My Cat Won't Eat It.

    By on

    It seems to be a quality food with limited ingredients which is great for cats with suspected food allergies, however my cat just does not like it. There are whole peas in there and as soon as she comes across one of those she turns her nose up and walks away and I'm kind of tired of having to mash up the food and pick out all the peas for her.
