About Instinct Raw Frozen Bites for Dogs

100% Raw Nutrition

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 Frozen Raw


Instinct Raw frozen recipes deliver raw meat, fruits, vegetables and the wholesome ingredients your pet needs, all in a complete and balanced meal. It’s how pet food should be made—with real ingredients you can recognize.


Raw foods retain more of the natural flavors, valuable antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamins and minerals your pet needs to stay healthy and thrive. Plus, they’re naturally more bioavailable, so the body gets more nutrients it can actually use.


These Frozen Bites are made with 85% meat and organs, and 15% fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals.


Freezing raw helps protect nutrients, preserving them at their peak for maximum freshness.


These recipes are made without grain, corn, wheat, soy, legumes or artificial colors or preservatives.

Good for my picky eater with food allergies

I am battling food allergies with my Maltese. We are trying to find something pure that she can eat without scratching. She is also a very picky eater! We think she is sensitive to chicken! There are a lot of dog foods made with chicken, even if chicken isn't in the description it is in the ingredient list! So far, she loves this. We have been introducing slowly with the regular homemade food I make for her. Definitely will buy again.

Noticeable improvement

Willie has always had a digestive issue, his poo was the consistency of butterscotch pudding. I was able to firm up his stools with a pre-probiotic supplement and some vegetables, but still suffered from some pudding poo as I call it. After researching and watching a documentary on dog food, it was time to try something different. Because of Willies size, 80 lbs, the recommendation is 4 cups of food over 2 meals. Now he gets 1 cup of his Blue Buffalo, 1 cup of Instinct Beef at each meal and with dinner he gets a fist full of California Blend vegetables. Now we have consistent nice and solid stools. Yup this isn't cheap, but if I suffered from poor bowel movements I too would look for resolve at what ever cost. Willie deserves to be treated just as I would treat myself.

Arrived mushy

It was cold when I opened box, but I didn't dare open the bag as I could hear only a few of the food particles at top when shook, but 80% of bag was mushy. I phoned Chewy and they were very professional about it.

Dogs love it

In their old age my dogs have become picky eaters. They love this food. They get it morning and evening with their high quality kibble. This is always gone as soon as I set it down. So happy I found something that is good for them and that they will eat.

The Real Deal

Chewy to the rescue. My local pet shop stopped carrying this product and my dog loves it! Order 3 bags, fast shipping backed in dry ice delivered to the door what could be better.

My dog liked the food but omg the smell. I’m not just talking about when I put it in his dish, every single time I open the fridge or freezer, the smell is atrocious and truly makes me nauseous. It makes my entire kitchen stink. I had to throw it away because of the smell.

Not a fan

I would never buy this again. Supposed to keep frozen but turns into a block then when you defrost turns into a gooey smelly mess. Impossible to serve

Great option for Small pets

These ship in a well lined box with dry ice and insulation. They arrive still frozen ready to pop into the freezer! I love the care with which they pack and ship these frozen items. I have two picky little pets-a young cat who likes only the chicken variety and a 12 lb Havanese dog who likes only the beef. This product comes in both the prefered meats and it well received by my picky pair. Great price too! Thanks Chewy
