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.

Like, not love

I like these are very easy to break into smaller pieces for treats. I used these as treats to be able to reward my dog more often throughout the day but not unbalance his nutrition with more than 10% of calories from incomplete foods. Personally, I don't buy into the raw food trend, but some dogs do seem to really enjoy dehydrated raw nuggets. My dog enjoyed them, but didn't go bonkers over it, so I'd probably only repurchase during a big sale. Otherwise, it's pretty expensive.

4 out of 4 dogs approve!

I have two picky eaters, one 3yo and a puppy who gobbled this stuff up! All 4 of my dogs really loved it either wet or dry. It was a big hit in the house especially since we got it through a special. If it is offered again we will be getting it!

My dog is the pickest eater and I have tried so many different foods! He took one bite and we haven't looked back. He won't even eat his old food anymore (when I was trying to transition him).

Great but $$$

Great product, my dogs love it, but was disappointed with how expensive it is for such a small bag.

Great dog food!

I watched a video about how raw meats that have been freeze-dried are so much better for your dog than dog food with grains and meat meal. Our dog can't wait to eat this stuff! The only drawback is that it is pricey.

SMELLS GOOD AS WELL. I almost had a bowl with milk. Gave it to da woof instead. My dogs love the stuff. keep up the good work. would recommend this product to anyone that have pets. AND, the best part is once you read the instructions on the bag, then try it for a month or so, you discover that they are actually telling you the truth!

Good for the protein

Only 4 stars because I can't feed this as the only meal because my dog threw up the meal I started as an introductory meal. I only used a small amount added to her regular meal, hoping to gradually use more in future meals. It made her sick. Not sure why. So now I use it like I used the Raw Boost. She gets 12 pieces mixed with each meal for 21 calories of that meal. It seems to satisfy her, and she really does love them. Just can't give her a lot.
