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.

  • Success I think this one is a keeper.

    By on

    Mixed a bag of this with a bag of chicken raw boost flavor. I have two cats one real finicky with a sensitive stomach. After a week so far so good they both eat it and are keeping it down. No upset stomach or diarrhea. I tried other brands and there was always lots of uneaten pieces on the floor left by the picky one. Not so with this brand and these two favors. I think I finally found a brand that works!

  • Abe and Eve Love Instinct

    By on

    We are in the process of changing to Instinct at the suggestion of our veterinarian as Abe has a sensitive stomach. Both Abe and Eve are eating both dry foods and we are in the process of slowly deleting the second dry food from their diet and giving them only Instinct!

  • Healthy, but Cats don't like it

    By on

    My 4 Cats truly don't like the taste of this. It's been 2 weeks now. They nibble on it in between canned food feedings. So, it would be great if they could improve the flavor with the healthy ingredients. Alot of money wasted if your cats don't eat it.

  • Nope from the Kitties

    By on

    I had high hopes of being able to save $30 a month on dry cat food, but I guess my guys have a taste for only duck, and the high protein one at that. It was worth a try. Such Divas these furry lovelies are. Hey they know what they like, and I wouldn’t eat an inferior food eother.

  • Not every cat will like it

    By on

    This is a good quality cat food. However, I have two cats, one likes eat it and will eat it at times, the other will not go near it. I have found Nature Recipe Salmon pleases both cats.

  • Instinct products are maybe the best.

    By on

    Of all the products I've tried for cats and dogs they like Instinct the most. I also love that the bags have proper closures. Many have none or don't seal after a few uses.

  • Miss. Cleo is not a fan

    By on

    My kitty has never been a picky eater but when it came to this food, she does not have a liking for it. I changed the flavor from Chicken to Salmon thinking she would like it better and it was a no for her too. She'll eat the food but she'll sit there starring at it first and eventually she'll eat it. I stick with grain free food because it does wonders for her coat and she even lost some weight but I guess I'll just go back to her previous food.

  • My poor cats

    By on

    We have two cats, both sphinx, one about 5 and the other just now 1. My poor one year old could not handle this food alone. I had to purchase her old brand and mix it until this one was gone; although neither cat was fond of it. It also made their waste much more pungent... Have to go back to old brand.

  • It's A Winner!

    By on

    Had to replace my cat's dry food due to not being available anymore, and worried anything new would be refused by my picky cat. Researched the possible alternatives, and decided on Instinct Original Grain Free Real Salmon Dry Cat Food. Added it to the current one in increasing amounts over a couple of weeks, and it was happily accepted from day one! In fact, she started leaving the old product behind, preferring the new! A true Success for my cat and for me!
