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.

  • Dog loves it & his tummy loves it!

    By on

    Due to skin issues / allergies, my dog was on human-grade food (example: ground turkey with nutrients & veggies). It helped significantly but wasn’t quite the solution for his skin. Then we tried Natures Variety Salmon and found that his stool was extremely watery for a week +. We took him off as we realized the issue was more than him ‘adjusting to his new food’. So we tried venison at the recommendation of a Chewy employee. With their great return policy, I thought, “why not” and tried it. My dog LOVES it and his stomach digests it well with nice solid poops :) His paws (where the skin issues are) are starting to look better and his paw pads are starting to get a nice dark pigment again.

His skin isn’t as flaky around his paws - although it’s only been a week, we have a long way to go to see if long term this is the solution. But so far, one week in, and we are looking good! … more

  • Smells awful but by CKD lab eats it!

    By on

    My 14 yo lab eats little to nothing with her Cushings and chronic kidney disease. The Instinct kibble is about the only thing she will eat. Will continue to order for her!

  • Great Product!

    By on

    My German Shepherd loves the Raw boost recipes still have yet to try the lamb, but Im sure she will love it. Venison is probably the best one you can give your dog due to the amount of protein it holds. I Highly recommend this product.

  • Fussy dogs like this

    By on

    My dogs are fussy eaters but they actually like this! I buy a small bag of a different flavor, too, though. So, I can give them some variety once a week or so. But the freeze dried raw bits seem to do the trick.

  • Good food, cheap on freeze dried bits

    By on

    The food is good quality, but we had to buy a bag of just the freeze dried bits for additional $$$ because there were barely any in it. For $70 a bag you can be a bit more generous

  • Not a fan of this flavor

    By on

    I've used this brand for awhile now and it's fantastic, but the venson flavor has a strong smell. I thought that maybe it was just the flavor so i fed it anyways but it made my dog sick. Not sure if it was just to much for her but I've never had that problem before.
