About Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Cat Food

Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Cat Food


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.



Sometimes what's not included is just as important as what is. Our recipes are made with cage-free poultry or farm-raised rabbit 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


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

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.

    He Really Loves It.

    By on

    It's hard to find the right food, or anything, for an adult cat that's new to you. Our last cat we had for 18 1/2 years so knew her well. This one evidently has digestive problems. I like dry food the best but this has really helped his digestion. I was worried the salmon may be too rich so I mix it with chicken of the same brand. He loves it. Once it's down, I don't see it again. Bonus!!

    My Cat Loves It

    My cat cannot have foods containing chicken or grain, and this brand was recommended to me by her vet. This is the only wet food without her allergens that I have been able to get her to eat.

    Curious to see the very negative reviews. I have one picky eater and one "eats anything" cat. Both of them love this product.

    We have 6 cats and they can be VERY picky. One of our 6 has food allergies and requires limited ingredient food and she will eat this one as well as the others like it too - have caught them snitching some from her bowl.

    Yuck won't buy again.

    My cat isn't a picky eater. He eats wet and dry of several brands. But he hates this stuff and the smell is a bit off even for cat food. Now I'm stuck with a whole bunch of cans.

    all three cats refuse to eat this product, even strays did not touch it. Gave away 23 cans to a shelter, hope they have better luck.
