Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

They put the pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece of Instinct Original by tumbling their kibble with crushed, freeze-dried raw — raising the bar in nutrition and taste.

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

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.

    I Can't Believe My Fussy Cats Eat Instinct Original

    By on

    I took a chance and bought a bag of Instinct Original, a very nutritious dry food for cats, and I couldn't believe my fussy cats actually ate it! And they continue to eat it. Watching them eat (without an "attitude") was like witnessing a miracle! They also love Instinct's chicken meal. For this reason, I highly recommend this brand of cat food for your finickey cats (Aren't they all?) What the Instinct-brand gives you is peace-of-mind.

    I do rescue and I'm always trying to find a healthy food everyone will eat. This food is definitely one that will! I was shocked how quickly the bag disappeared. This is a top notch food for quality and one cats will actually love to eat.

    Instinct Salmon Dry Cat Food

    By on

    I chose this cat food because it has limited ingredients. It smells good but my cats are not too interested in it. I wish they were. I have tried both the Salmon and White Fish. They prefer another brand of Salmon dry cat food.

    Cats Eager to Eat

    By on

    After being on a true LID diet for GI issues, I decided to switch back to a fish based formula from the same brand. Ingredients are high quality and my GI issue boy is excited to eat again. For that reason alone, I'd give it 4 stars and overall quality bumps it up another. I wish there was a 12 lb bag or something slightly larger but that's little details. It does have a distinct fishy smell but if sealed or kept in a airtight container, it's not bothersome at all. Would definitely recommend the brand and this formula

    A healthy food that they LIKE!

    By on

    Maybe I have 3 salmon lovers but all my cats like these crunchies, as we refer to dry food in my house. This is important because one of my cats gets 98% of his nutrition from dry food. I feel this is one of the best dry foods I can provide.

    My cat goes crazy !!!

    By on

    I just got this cat food....the salmon one....and my cat is so unbelievably finicky but she went absolutely crazy when I opened this sack and she smelled it.....it was almost as if she was getting a big treat. She loves it. This is the only food, I have ever bought for her that she eats every time. She doesn't ever turn her nose up at this food. I would recommend this food for any cat, especially the ones that are finicky.

    We recently adopted a 3 year old siamese. We wanted to feed him a better quality food then what he was eating. He loves this food and gets excited about meal time.

    Not sure but

    By on

    I think they like it. I usu feed the instinct wet salmon in the morning and leave this kibble in a bowl for them. I think they may not eat as much of it because they like the wet.
