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.

  • Best food around!

    By on

    I absolutely LOVE this food for my shepherd who has food sensitivities. His coat and skin look wonderful when he's eating this food. The only downside of this food is the built in zip lock is not very functional when you open the bag which is a little disappointing since I was so excited to see a way to close the big bags of food built in, but it's only a minor flaw. Still the best dog food and we will be using it for a long, long time!

  • Great brand, but smelly

    By on

    We have been feeding our Weim Natures Variety for most of his five years of life. Great brand, he does well on this gluten free diet, but the salmon.... ooohh smelly!! The odor of the food fills our entire garage, everyone in the house knows when Wilson gets fed because of the stink he from his bowl. We will stick with Natures Variety but go back to the chicken.

  • Serious fishy goodness!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    High percentages of protein and fat, with resulting lower carbs, makes this a higher calorie rocket fuel for energetic dogs that love their fish kibble. Even my super picky young pup eats this with enthusiasm. Highly recommended!

  • Relief for my dog!

    By on

    I cannot say enough good things about this food! My 10 year old dog has been having issues with an allergy that was giving her sores on her belly, and back legs for a very long time. She also had a yeast ear infection. Not fun. Have been giving steroids, and antihistamine as we tried to figure it out. I hated having her on those meds at all, as she was still not right on the medications and that is not the answer. Initially took grains and starches out, and that helped a little... but we still needed more help. Read about this food; tried it, and we're so glad we did! We're three weeks in of the total switch, and we have seen an amazing turn around! Not one new sore, she has tons of new fur growing I cannot say enough good things about this food!

    Immediately noticed an improvement in his coat...soft, shiny, and smooth. His digestive issues have improved too. It does smell like salmon but he likes it and he is healthy which is all that matters.
