The Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw Is In Everything Instinct Does

Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand


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 Best Friends Animal Society, they're furthering the no-kill movement and their shared mission of transforming and saving the lives of 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.

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece


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.

  • Great quality food, with perfect ingredients...

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    But not for Dante. Had this food tasted differently for Dante I'm sure he would have LOVED it.. But It just doesn't suit him, but doesn't mean it wouldn't suit other dogs. Dante went so far as to take a mouthful of this food and his new food, spit it on the floor to pick out only the new food to eat. But I know the ingredients of this food and it's great, I just wished Dante loved it too.

  • Great dogfood!

    I love the fact that it has real meat chunks in it. Knowing that I am feeding my English Bulldog a good quality of food makes my day a whole lot better! He loves it! Clears his wrinkles up and keeps the weight off of him!

    We are transitioning our two Corgis from Acana to this dry kibble. So far so good. They didn't even balk at the difference and I and they love the smaller kibble. Acana is a great dog food but too rich (protein/fat content) for our adult corgis and they don't have a healthy weight formula. They so far are doing great on it.

    I have 3 dogs and 2 cats and it's hectic keeping up with food and treats. I have hit the jackpot for shopping! They have different foods due to ages. I work a lot and Chewy has truly made my life so much easier. Everything came fast and I couldn't have been more pleased AND PRICES ARE AWESOME!!
