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

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

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.

    This was the "silver bullet" to our dog's digestive issues

    By on

    My senior boxer started having diarrhea. I took him to the vet twice and she prescribed several different things, including antibiotics (2 types) and also a prescription dog food. Nothing helped. We tried raw feeding, which helped a lot except for the occasional bouts of runny poop. Nothing seemed to stop that. I thought my dog had cancer. We decided to switch our the carpet in our home to make his accidents easier to clean up and just live with the problem. Then I remembered that my former dog nutritionist, Dr. Susan Wynn, who is an author on pet nutrition and a veterinarian, had gone to work for Instinct/Nature's Variety. I decided to see what they had available. I used the chat My senior boxer started having diarrhea.

Then I remembered that my former dog nutritionist, Dr. Susan Wynn, who is an author on pet nutrition and a veterinarian, had gone to work for Instinct/Nature's Variety. I decided to see what they had available. I used the chat function on their web site. The rep recommended this Gut Health food. It was the "silver bullet", a true answer to our prayers. Our dog's digestive system is totally stable now and it has been months. Because the nutritionist had strongly emphasized the importance of variety in a dog's diet, I have recently started adding a little Instinct canned food - the limited ingredient, and my dog seems to be doing fine with it. Thank you Instinct! … more

    Great kibble with freeze dried yummy meat

    By on

    My beagle dog will sift through all of the kibble just to eat all of the freeze dried meat chunks. This is keeping his weight down I think.

    Won't order again.

    By on

    I ordered this for my babies thinking it would help their stomach. They didn't like it. I had to mix canned food with it so they would eat it. It's hard to find a dry food they like anymore.
