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.

  • Cleared up allergies

    By on

    We have a 9 year old boxer who has really bad allergies. We switched over to this brand about a year ago and haven't looked back. His mouth/nose was always red, in between his toes were irritated. Going grain free has really helped him. He loves the food and it's helped him tremendously. Only downside is it's a little pricey, but I'd do anything for my baby.

  • Product is Good; Packaging is Awful

    By on

    We've been using Instinct's food for a few years. Our girl really likes it. I am always dubious with the "new and improved" aspect. Although the formula changed some; our girl still likes it. The packaging on the other had is unsatisfactory. First bag the zip close seal ripped right out of the bag. The next bag the seal stayed in place but is nearly impossible to close. Make sure you have an airtight container to preserve freshness.

  • Highly recommend!

    By on

    I used Chewy for the first time using a coupon a friend gave me. I ordered a bag of dog food that came the next day. Shipping was free and I saved a ton of money being a first time user and scheduled shipping. My dog loves Instinct but it can be pricy. I'm glad Chewy was able to provide a financial break for me :-) Will continue to use for the future!

    Two pets ... one a seven pound Chinese Crested Powder-Puff and the other... a thirty-eight pound Terrier-mix. Both enjoy their bowl-licking meals of Instinct Grain-Free kibbles mixed with Blue Wilderness Chicken and Beef.

  • My dog loves it!

    By on

    I read a review on dogfoodadvisors.com for Nature's Variety and decided to give it a try. So far I'm very happy with how well my dog likes the food. He is 8yrs old and a like the fact that this food is for All stages of life. Chewy seemed to have the best price and I like auto delivery.

  • GSD Loves It

    By on

    I tried this beef formula as a break from the chicken formula and he loves this. It has a lower protein content than the chicken formula but it costs less also.

  • A bit dishonest in product label.

    By on

    Great food, but it is mostly turkey and fish. Beef is weighed uncooked, so goes to front of list. Next is turkey meal and a variety of fish. Down the list after fat is lamb meal.
