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.

DO IT TOGETHER

Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with local shelters and volunteer efforts nationwide we’re on a mission to transform the lives of all pets.

MAKE IT BETTER

    Made a world of difference for my 'sickly' cat!

    By on

    This is my go-to dry food for all of my fosters and FIV+ friends. Around a year ago, I adopted a four year old cat who had a laundry list of health issues - dental disease, early kidney disease, chronic herpes, obesity, and FIV. He'd been at the shelter for over a year eating Science Diet, and I wanted to switch him over to a food that was actually good for him. Within a few months of eating this and Merrick LID wet food, he was a different cat. He dropped the extra weight, his coat was shiny and eyes were brighter and his herpes flare-ups minimized. His dental and kidney disease have not progressed. He absolutely loves to eat this food. My only complaint was that his poop was super stinky for This is my go-to dry food for all of my fosters and FIV+ friends.

    Mixed result

    Decided to try a new dry food for my two finicky cats. One loved this, but the other won’t touch it. C’est la vie.

    Can't keep her paws of it!

    By on

    My cat demands her ultimate dry duck food. She has three food stations: one for can food am & pm and two others one for dry rabbit and one for dry duck. She favors the dry duck. She stands next to that dish in the am eventhough she has already enjoyed her can food . At lunch time she asks for it again and once more in the evening.

    Contains fish

    By on

    My cats loved this but my vet said to stay away from fish because it’s inflammatory. As long as that’s not an issue for your cats, mine were very happy eating it.

    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.

    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.

    Great Replacement for our old food

    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.
