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.

    So, I have picky eaters when it comes to getting them eating healthier kibble. I also have pups with allergies, sensitive gut, and from small to large. They all three love this stuff! So far they've had chicken, duck, & lamb. I can't keep it stocked up they gobble it up so fast. Even the cat sneaks a few bites when she can. My TerrierX that mostly gets wet food due to gut issues, eats this between meals, and doesn't get sick or in pain (pancreas). So glad I bought a trail bag to try this, I normally have to have 2 kinds for 2 dogs... now one will feed them all, and the allergies seem to be agreeing too! Yea, this is a gold find.

  • Good product

    By on

    My 4 big dogs love this food. I especially like the ease of having a kibble but with some of the health benefits of raw. My small dog can’t have chicken, so it would be nice to have a turkey and duck recipe with no chicken products.

    My two Whippets love the duck! They especially like it when I put just a touch of warm water with it and the raw bits plump up!

  • I love this brand's raw products, but this line is disappointing

    By on

    First, I will say that this is still a premium food and not junk, but I am very disappointed for several reasons: 1. With real duck - this ingredient does come first in the list, but is followed by turkey and salmon meal. So yes, there is duck, but how much duck is a question. 2. Raw boost - I waited for a while to make sure that my observations were true. There were so very few raw pieces. I am better just buying the raw pieces and adding it to the kibble myself. Perhaps this bag is a fluke, but I am not willing to try again. With so many great competing products out there, I am genuinely surprised that this company went the other way instead of boosting their products to stand against First, I will say that this is still a premium food and not junk, but I am very disappointed for several reasons: 1.

  • Minimal raw everytime

    The quality seems good but you won't find much raw boost at all which is really disappointing. New branding, same price, less product.
