Tasty Toppers for Targeted Wellness

Add excitement and a boost of nutrition to your dog’s meals with Instinct Raw Boost Mixers. Available in a variety of formulas, these freeze-dried raw pieces combine real meat and organs with functional, whole-food ingredients. Made to support targeted wellness, these mixers can be used as an all-natural meal topper or a healthy treat for your pet.

Naturally Nourish Your Dog’s Skin & Coat

Instinct Raw Boost Mixers for Skin & Coat are nutrient-dense, freeze-dried raw pieces that are rich in omega-3 and 6 fatty acids and other ingredients that help nourish your dog’s skin and coat. Made with cage-free chicken and functional, whole-food ingredients like wild-caught cod, salmon oil, chia seeds and cranberries, they provide an easy way to add raw nutrition to your pup’s diet. Bursting with flavor, they make a great all-natural meal topper or healthy treat!

Minimally Processed and Never Cooked

Eating a diet rich in minimally processed foods is just as good for our pets as it is for us. Instinct raw recipes are made with responsibly sourced meat and non-GMO fruits and vegetables that are minimally processed—and never cooked—to keep their nutrients intact. Less processed food allows for better digestion and nutrient absorption, so your furry friend gets more nutrients with every bite.

The Raw Difference

Unlike traditional, cooked pet foods, raw pet food retains more important antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are key to better health. Feeding as little as 20% raw as part of your pet’s diet can have a positive impact on your pet’s life. Common changes noticed by pet parents who feed raw include better digestion, improved skin and coat, improved weight, relief from food sensitivities, and increased energy and vitality.

Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

Is this pathogen-free?
Answer by ChewySep 21, 2021
This recipe is raw. Instinct uses High Pressure Processing (also known as HPP or Cold Pressure) on all of their frozen and freeze-dried raw recipes to ensure they are free from pathogenic bacteria like Salmonella, E. Coli, and Listeria. This is the same process used for human foods like cold-pressed juices and guacamole. They also test every batch for safety before it leaves their facilities.

What is the shelf life of an opened bag?
Answer by ChewyJun 11, 2021
Unopened Mixers have a shelf life of two years, keeping in mind not to exceed the printed expiration date. Once opened, Mixers are fresh for up to 30 day as long as it’s resealed between feedings.

Is this safe for cats?
Answer by ChewyDec 04, 2019
Instinct by Nature's freeze-dried Raw Boost Mixers - whether labeled "cat" or "dog" - are suitable for either species since they are for supplemental feeding and not a complete and balanced meal. They are packaged differently to make it easy for cat and dog parents to easily locate them in their pet store, but nutritionally these Mixers can be served interchangeably.

How many servings are there per bag? Based off of one serving being 1/4 cup

Food Topper

Both of my dogs liked this topper. I didn't notice any changes to their skin or coats, but they liked the flavor! It could also work well for training treats.

used them as treats

Dog loved these on her food, and even more so when we soaked them in water before adding them, but in the end they ended up being most useful as treats. They don't really have an odor. I was worried they'd be so dry she'd choke on them because she doesnt always do a great job chewing her food before she swallows, but they were small enough that it didn't seem to be a problem. I prefer these to the frozen version of this same product, as these are easier to add to food (no thawing).

Wholesome and so yummy

I’ve used the chicken flavor of these Instinct mixers in the past. The dogs already enjoy their kibble, but they scoop these bits out first then finish the bowl. I only add a few on top, but they are dry/tender enough to crumble them into the food if is necessary. I expect the salmon oil is supposed to be the ingredient for skin and coat health, but I will probably buy a salmon oil supplement for winter dry skin. For me, this is a healthy dog treat that can help with bone and skin health all year.

wish it didn’t have chicken….

My dog loves these and I love this company! However, I have to feed my dog limited ingredients due to allergies. I hate that most of their raw/dehydrated food has chicken or beef in it. I need one that is ONLY fish.
