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.


Delicious and nutritious pet food should only use real ingredients. For Instinct, this means all-natural, real meat, fruits and vegetables, with nothing artificial.


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.


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.


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.

    Picky eater problem resolved!

    By on

    My terrier mix (45 lbs) 9 mo female has never really liked any brand food I’ve bought .... until now. She immediately dived into this brand and flavor without having to be coaxed. I was surprised to find a food she seems to really like as even high end famous name brands didn’t appeal to her. If u have a picky eater, try this. I totally recommend!!

    great food!

    By on

    My dogs are normally very picky, especially with kibble. After feeding just raw I thought they would have a really hard time going back to hard food. They did amazing and gave gobbled it up every single time without an issue (though we do add nature’s variety freeze dried raw topping to it). I’m highly impressed. And it looks like it’s doing some good for my Rottweilers skin too.

    Quality Good - Taste is not for my pup

    By on

    When switching dog food, I understand it is best to do so gradually. At the beginning, only 25% of his food in take was Instinct so he ate it. However, when we got to the point of 75%, he fought me to eat his food. I added incentives like wet food. They worked for one feeding and the next time he was back to fighting me. Finally, I gave him 100% his old food and he ate it right up! So clearly, not for my pup.

    Pups fav food

    By on

    My dog LOVES this food. Of course she picks out all the chicken first and eats the kibble last but this is the only food she will eat. I've tried so many kinds of different food per the vet because she would just not eat anything and she was underweight and I found this on Chewy, it was a little pricey, but she's worth it if it'll get her to eat.

    That is Daisy Duke's opinion ...she loves it. She waits patiently for the Instinct to be put in her dish and chumps away.
