This Is Raw

REAL INGREDIENTS: Raw meat, fruits, vegetables and other wholesome ingredients provide the complete and balanced nutrition your pet needs to thrive.

NEVER COOKED: Unlike traditional kibble, cans or refrigerated pet foods, these naturally healthy raw foods are never cooked and are only minimally processed. This keeps their nutrients intact and easily digestible for balanced nutrition.

NUTRIENT DENSE: Raw foods retain more of the valuable antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamins and minerals your pet needs to stay healthy and strong. More nutrients retained means there's more available for your pet to actually use.

FREEZE-DRIED: By freeze-drying raw ingredients at their peak, Instinct locks in nutrition and taste to deliver nutrient-dense foods in their most potent form.

    Tasty! (My dogs told me!)

    By Fatelvis on Dec 5, 2020

    Although expensive, my dogs go absolutely crazy for the taste of this food. They literally lick the bowl clean. My wife has looked into this food, and it seems to be the best option to feed your dog in the terms of healthiness. We mix it half-and-half with regular kibble. I will continue to buy this product, and my dogs will be happy for it!

    Too fattening for my little girl

    By Tina on Dec 24, 2020

    This is convenient over the frozen, but my girl put on a lot of weight from this, even though she gets the recommended amount. It also does not fill her up. I'm going to give unopened bag away. I think this would be better for a younger, bigger dog.

    Expensive for Quanity

    By Butterfly16 on Nov 2, 2020

    I have not fed this product to my dog as I'm preparing to send it back. The quantity is way too little for the price.

    excellent dog food

    By kelko1977 on Aug 6, 2020

    I was able to sample this with my dog. It is a high quality food. He tolerated it well. It is pricey but if a dog has allergies to multiple things I would say this has got to be a safe alternative. My dog was very reactive when I opened the bag. He definitely enjoyed it.

    Great for treats

    By Jdove on Jul 20, 2020

    I received these for free to see how my dogs liked them. They were a hit! I got the beef and the chicken flavors and my dogs couldn't wait to get to them. I'm mostly using them as treats. Since I don't give my dogs a lot of treats, I like treats that will last a bit if needed. These have a great shelf life and can be given wet or dry.
