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.

  • Great food for sensitive stomachs!

    By on

    I have a 10 year old kitty who has inflammatory bowel disease. He has been throwing up for years. The vet has him on Predisolone and Hill's Prescription diet. He still was having problems throwing up the dry food. This duck formula is cheaper and he only throws up when I skip his medicine or he has a hairball.

  • Great Replacement for our old food

    By on

    When Chewy stopped carrying our old dry food, we went searching for a replacement. This has been wonderful. Our cats love it and I like the ingredients.

  • My cats love the taste

    By on

    This is a big upgrade from the Fancy Feast kibble my cats were getting as snacks/treats. It's made with quality ingredients and very little junk so I was afraid the cats wouldn't be as into it. I didn't have to worry. The cats absolutely love this and go crazy for it and I feel better knowing that I'm giving them something healthier than the average kibble. It is quite pricy compared to Fancy Feast but I believe it's worth it for healthier cats. It will take me a while to go through the 4.5 lb bag as I only give them a very small amount each day. Once it's done, I will absolutely order again.

  • The best food ever!

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    My 8 y.o. cat always ate duck flavor dry food. I tried this one after Fromm stopped being sold on Chewy. And, oh, boy! She loves it so much! She is not a big eater, but I have noticed her plate with dry food started getting empty much faster! Also, her poop started looking much softer and healthier. Before it was always too hard. I am very happy with this food and will keep my cat on it from now on!

    My two cats didn’t like the taste as they tired to bury it like kitty litter.

    I am trying to minimize feeding dry food to my cats these days, but if I do, this one seems to be excellent quality with a good ingredient profile. Both my cats love it.

  • Great Cat Food

    By on

    I have 8 cats and they all like this brand of cat food. I rotate between the turkey, chicken and rabbit flavors to keep things interesting so the cats don't get bored. It is easy to rotate because only the main ingredient changes. Some of my cats are picky eaters and one has IBD but all do well on this cat food.
