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.

    Just tried this

    By on

    I have 5 very finicky cats with sensitive stomachs. I've been buying Instinct Ultimate Protein with Chicken and sometimes run out. Don't always need the big bag just for a week or two so decided to try the smaller bag of Duck recipe. They love it and their stomachs love it! Happy cats--Happy cat Mom!!

    Cats Didn't Approve

    My cats were not keen on it. I was hoping to add protein variety to their diet but it's looking like they just want chicken.

    I buy Instinct Duck cat food mainly for my ferrets. I combine it with two other ferret foods to create a mix. The cats like it also.

    These Kitties Approve!!

    By on

    I realize that, like humans, different strokes for different...well, kitties. My kitties are pickers. They eat a little and walk away. When I’m at work, I like knowing that they can enjoy this nutritious and delicious food. I also tried the freeze dried toppers in both rabbit and chicken. Those were also a hit! Kintsugi and Cosette don’t care for fishy stuff, so I decided to try the duck and rabbit flavors. Luckily this one also comes in chicken flavor, too. I also feed them wet food which is venison and duck. If your kitties don’t like more “gamey” flavors, they might like the chicken better.

    My 4 Burmese wouldn't eat this flavor. They do love the chicken flavor and are thriving on it.

    My beloved Lady cat is a very, very picky (wise) eater. She loves Instinct Duck. She is very regular, you know what I mean, she sleeps well and we are thrilled seeing her eating the food!
