About Instinct Raw Freeze-Dried Meals for Dogs

100% Raw Meals

Instinct believes that eating a diet rich in raw, unprocessed foods is just as good for our pets as it is for us. They make every meal with the understanding that real, less-processed, whole raw foods can have the power to transform lives.

Upgrade From Kibble to Freeze-Dried Raw


Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Meals contain 3x more real meant and nutrient-rich organs, compared to Instinct Original kibble. That means there’s more animal protein and flavor in every bite! 


Instinct preserves the integrity of their ingredients by keeping them raw, which leaves their nutrients intact. Raw is better for digestion because it’s less processed than cooked kibble.


These Raw Meals are made with 85% meat & organs and 15% fruits, vegetables, vitamins & minerals.

Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

What is the difference between the Instinct Raw meal and the Instinct raw bites?
Answer by ChewyNov 26, 2020
This variety is freeze-dried and does not require any refrigeration. The Instinct Frozen Raw Bites Recipe Dog Food varieties, would need to be stored in the freezer.

What is the percentage of calcium, phosphorus and DHA on a dry matter basis?
Answer by ChewyJul 28, 2020
Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Meals Grain-Free Cage-Free Chicken Recipe Dog Food has approximately 2.34% calcium, 1.38% phosphorus, and 0.14% EPA and DHA on a dry matter basis.

What is the Montmorillonite Clay source and purpose?
Answer by ChewyFeb 18, 2021
Montmorillonite clay is used in some natural pet foods as a natural anti-caking agent. It allows high-quality pet foods to remain free of man-made and chemical agents for this purpose. In addition, it is a natural source of minerals so it may bring with it added health benefits to pets.

Is this item equivalent to using the Instinct frozen raw grain free chicken bites? Are they interchangeable?
Answer by ChewyJan 31, 2021
The Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Chicken Recipe has Mixed Tocopherols and Rosemary Extract listed under the ingredient list, which the Instinct Frozen Raw Bites Chicken Recipe does not. This recipe also has a higher crude protein and fat content. We always recommend speaking to your veterinarian prior to changing your little one's routine. Your pet's vet is your best ally in managing any existing health conditions and sensitivities.

Loved by my very picky dog

My shihpoo is rather picky and doesn’t like most kibbles. However, she likes this Raw freeze dried one consistently. You don’t have to rehydrate and can just feed like kibble!

Just the BEST

My two very spoiled picky eater terriers just LOVE this stuff. I mix one 25 ounce bag of the freeze dried raw meal with two small bags of the freeze dried topper - we use the immunity one and the digestion one - instead of kibble, and mix with a wet topper and a little water to rehydrate. Never a bite left! I really wanted to feed raw, but just couldn't deal with the whole frozen thing (hey, I can barely manage the human food in my freezer, plus I was constantly forgetting to thaw the dog food). This stuff is shelf stable, and I encourage you to read up on the nutritional benefits of freeze dried raw. It is just perfect for us, and worth every penny.
