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.

  • So far, so good

    By on

    My two middle aged kitties loved their Acana but I had to change since chewy no longer carried it. We spoke to chewy and we were reccomended Instinct. The kitties really love it. Except for one who got a lil sick with the change at first, it's been a smooth transition.

  • Good food, but now smaller, costlier bag

    By on

    Our cat thrive on this kibble. However, Nature's Variety recently changed the packaging from a 12-lb bag to an 11-lb (5 kg) bag, with no change in price. This means we are not only paying 10% more, we are also paying for more frequent shipments. I am not pleased.

  • They eat it

    By on

    My cats pretty much eat anything, I take comfort in knowing they at least get decent nutritional value from this food. My cat hasn't had bladder stones since I've been buying the higher quality foods. Gave this one a shot, they eat it.

  • Kitty loves it

    By on

    It used to take her a week to finish all the crunchy food I put in her bowl, but the Instinct she eats in 3 days! Safe to say she loves it and I'm so happy because it's so much healthier.

  • My cat actually likes this!

    My cat usually just goes straight for the wet food I give her, but this is the first brand of dry food I have tried that she actually seems to like! A+

  • Convinced it's MAGIC

    By on

    I'm beginning to think this dry food is magic. Since we got our cat Odin at 6 months old, he has thrown his food around everywhere while eating and scooped it out of his bowl between munches. He never finished the food portion throughout the day; there was always leftover that he wouldn't ever eat. This new food, HE LOVES. Not a single piece of kibble is left in or around his bowl. And he eats it all in one sitting! Magic! What's more, my older cat has been discontent with his food for about a year. We've tried a bunch of food. He meows and cries all day long and is unhappy and seems hungry all day, even though he was eating. With this food, he is completely content!

    We had to switch food for my 2 cats and so far they seem ok with this new food. My recently rescued male seems to like it better than my female who is a little more spoiled.

  • My kittens love this food

    By on

    I have 2 Bengal kittens who love this dry food. I took it out of the Chewy box which they love to climb in and out of and left the food bag out on the table for less then 5 minutes to put my laundry in the dryer. When I got back to the kitchen they had chewed the bag and there was wall to wall dry food all over the place. I just shook my head and said, "well I guess it passes the taste test". They all but attack me when I take this out for them. So far it's there absolute favorite!
