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.

  • My cat goes crazy !!!

    By on

    I just got this cat food....the salmon one....and my cat is so unbelievably finicky but she went absolutely crazy when I opened this sack and she smelled it.....it was almost as if she was getting a big treat. She loves it. This is the only food, I have ever bought for her that she eats every time. She doesn't ever turn her nose up at this food. I would recommend this food for any cat, especially the ones that are finicky.

  • Greycie approves

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    My cat Greycie is 18 years old, I switched her over to Instinct food about a year ago and she loves it. Her coat (long hair) is beautiful and her teeth are white. She has no kidney issues or arthritis which is great for an 18 year old!!

  • Improvement

    By on

    New product for us. Already improvement evident. Part of effort to change to more raw food. The small but crunchy bits seem familiar like regular "kibble."

    My cats are loving this food. Trying to cut back on amount they are fed, but it’s hard to do. They. also like the canned salmon.

  • 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.

  • Excellent food!

    By on

    I have 23 inside rescued cats. Finding a food that agrees with all of them has been difficult. I tried Purina Grain free and two of my babies started losing fur. One cat had beautiful long, black, shiny, silky fur but began losing handfuls daily. His fur was dull and matted as were many of the others...several others were vomiting...I put them on this food and it's been a huge difference for all of them.

  • 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!

  • Cats Love It!

    By on

    I have four siblings who were rescued 5 years ago (hard to believe!) before they were weaned. As a result of this, they were plagued with digestive issues. Until I finally landed upon Instinct. I was advised to keep them away from chicken (a common allergy in cats) and we tried the Rabbit which did well. But they REALLY love the Salmon! And their coats are much nicer on this.

  • 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.
