HIGH-PROTEIN KIBBLE

HIGH-PROTEIN KIBBLE

High in animal protein, grain-free and guided by Instinct's belief in raw, each recipe starts with real meats like cage-free chicken, USA-raised beef or farm-raised rabbit.

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 Original 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.

    Both my dogs love this food dry or with meat. I've tried other brands and one dog would like it & the other wouldn't until I got Instinct.

  • Great Food

    By on

    My dog had a lot of yeast growth in his ears which caused scratching with loss of fur behind his ears. His fur always seemed to have an oily film which wasn't fun to pet. You always had to wash your hands afterwards. I was looking for food with low carbs so no sugars. This food seemed to be the trick. He has been on it for 4 months and the smelly ears have gone away along with the oily fur and it's a joy to pet him now. The only con is that it is expensive.

  • Amazing but pricy

    By on

    I feed three dogs, two of which have food allergies. My big boy weights 100Lbs and the other two ladies range from 50-60. It takes a bag a week to feed them so it's expensive but worth it. They don't itch or lose hair anymore combined with flea medication.

  • My dog enjoys Nature’s Variety!

    By on

    My dog enjoys the food, he’s been spoiled with me adding food toppers so he won’t eat the plain kibble unless I top it with the freeze dried bits or the soft food and gravy toppers from instinct.

  • My dog hated it

    By on

    My dog didn’t like this food at all, plus it’s quite expensive. Since there is no way to return a opened bag of food on Chewy I’m stuck with a nearly full bag of very expensive dog food.

  • My dog loves it

    By on

    I purchased this food because of the high quality rating. I tried the chicken first but she did not seem to like but the beef she really digs into. Because my dog is small (35 lbs.) I don't mind the small kibble but my large dog (115 lbs.) started having lots of plaque buildup because of the size of the kibble. I switched him to a larger kibble (different brand unfortunately) and it's much better. I contacted Instinct asking if they plan to create a larger kibble and they said they are considering it. Great company, good quality dog food!

  • 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.
