Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand

LEAD WITH RAW

It all started with Instinct's raw pet food. Since the beginning, they've led with raw because they know the good it can do. They're rewriting the rules of pet food and championing raw nutrition to bring its superior benefits to all that they do.

KEEP IT REAL

Delicious and nutritious pet food should only use real ingredients. For Instinct, this means all-natural, real meat, fruits and vegetables, with nothing artificial.

MAKE IT SIMPLE

Feeding raw should be simple, and it should easily fit into your everyday routine. Instinct believes raw should be accessible to pet parents so every pet can experience the benefits of raw nutrition.

DO IT TOGETHER

Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with local shelters and volunteer efforts nationwide we’re on a mission to transform the lives of all pets.

MAKE IT BETTER

Instinct has never been afraid to challenge the status quo of pet nutrition. They continuously redefine what better means—always pushing their standards of nutrition to raise the bar in pet food.

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

About Instinct

Instinct believes deeply that it's up to them to find a way to make it possible for more people to feed their pets the pure, real nutrition that only comes from raw. They know that if they can get the nutrition of raw into more bowls, they'll transform the lives of more pets. And that's really why they do what they do.

    Keep in mind...

    I love this brand and my Maltese who is the MOST picky eater actually eats this food. My dog had previously high liver enzymes and after the special diet he needed to be on for a few months the vet said he needed to eat food that wasn’t dry food. My dog HATES wet food. I found this brand and not only does he eat but when he had another blood test his labs were completely normal. LETS BE CLEAR: DO NOT MICROWAVE THIS FOOD. I see a review that I believe is completely unfair and inaccurate. You simply take the portion you need out of the bag and leave out on the COUNTER. Then wait like 10 to 15 minutes and serve. NO HEAT REQUIRED. I know this other reviewer had issues BUT I do believe is because I love this brand and my Maltese who is the MOST picky eater actually eats this food.

    Not for my picky eater

    By on

    I'm sure this dog food is fine for most dogs. However, mine would not touch it, which I sort of knew would be the case. It came packaged beautifully in dry ice and double wrapped. I was hoping he would eat it, but I'll have to keep looking. Also, my pup has medical issues and his Vet was concerned about feeding him raw.

    Terrible Product

    By on

    When this food thaws out its like mushy baby poop. Extremely gross! I will not buy this again. The Tylee's was sooooo much better. I don't understand why Chewy no longer carries it.

    Do not give. gave my dog botulism. also occasionally burns in microwave

    By on

    I do not care if anyone believes me or not but ever since i got my dog this, he has been having problems. I had always been suspicious of this since whenever i put it in the microwave, it occasionally catches fire. The pet smart employee recommended it however, so might as well try it. As days passed of my dog eating this food, he suddenly woke up with paralysis (botulism to be exact). He was a perfectly healthy dog. Clearly there is something in this that has a chance to destroy your puppy dog. I had to write this review to warn everyone. That is all. PLease: DO NOT GIVE THIS TO YOUR DOG

    I have a very picky small dog and have been searching for something she will consistently eat for some time. This won her over! It does take a bit longer than stated to thaw but other than 100% satisfied.
