Feeding Instructions

Ideal feeding amounts will vary by age, weight, and activity level so the guide below should be used as an initial recommendation.

Daily Feeding Guidelines (1 oz medallions per day):

Dog WeightAdult Maintenance (medallions)Weight Loss (medallions)
5 - 15 lbs4 - 82 - 5
16 - 25 lbs8 - 125 - 7
26 - 50 lbs12 - 187 - 12
51 lbs +18 +12 +

For puppies (except large breed [70+lbs as an adult]), feed up to twice the adult maintenance amount. For pregnant and nursing females, feed up to three times the adult maintenance amount. Visit the Instinct Pet Food website for more specific feeding recommendations.

Handling Tips:

  • Keep frozen until ready to use. Defrost your pet's daily portion by thawing it in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight or for approximately 4 to 6 hours. Medallions should be cold to the touch when served.

  • Wash hands, working surfaces, utensils, bowls and any other items that come in contact with raw meat or poultry with hot, soapy water.

  • If your pet does not consume all the food presented within 30 minutes, discard any leftovers.

  • Keep package sealed to maintain freshness.

Transition Instructions

Always introduce a new food over a period of 5 to 7 days, mixing increasing amounts of Instinct with the current food each day.

Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand


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.


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


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.


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.


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

    Real Raw Beef

    By RawBeef on Apr 12, 2021

    This is excellent Real Raw Beef. My dogs love it. I like the way their weight has balanced out. Only problem I have with it is at this price, I can't afford this. I have 3 dogs between 5 & 8 lbs. The first bag I ordered I fed according to the directions it lasted me 4 days. I ordered 2 bags and fed 1 medallion & kibble 2 X a day. They lasted 2 weeks. That means even feeding with kibble it's $70 a month just for the meat. I have to try to find a less expensive replacement.

    My dogs had no interest in this food. I tried to introduce it in different ways. I got the younger one to take a bite and she rolled around in her mouth and spit out. I would like a refund.

    Instinct raw medallions

    By Paula on Mar 27, 2021

    My dogs wouldn’t touch these medallions. The smell is disgusting. I almost got sick smelling them. Will try the chicken bites that I purchased. Hopefully a better outcome!

    By ShakeyMike on Mar 4, 2021

    It sits in bag on the freezer. I have to use the opened food first. And this opinion survey comes before I can use the product

    the pack loves this

    By pittiemomma on Sep 16, 2020

    We have trouble regulating our fur babies stools and this helps so much! And they love it. Although it’s supposed to be fed as a meal, we use it as a topper added to their kibble. My 2 pitties and mixed breed literally dance for this. The packages come packed in dry ice. And to be honest, the medallions are seldom stuck together from freeze/thaw issues. We’ve tried the freeze dried and for some reason it doesn’t settle well. I hope this never gets removed from the Chewy store.

    Wish they were individually wrapped

    By Sammy on Aug 12, 2020

    These are fine, my dog eats them (although she prefers a different brand of raw food). I just wish they were individually wrapped. The bag is resealable, which is a very nice touch, but these seem to get a little freezer burn or something. I also prefer handling raw food through a wrapper. I would get these if my usual brand were sold out, but they aren’t my first choice.

    Bag Delivered Open and My Dog is Now Bored with it

    By BagDeliveredOpen on Aug 31, 2020

    After almost 3 years of feeding this to my male havanese for breakfast he is now getting so bored with it that he won't eat it. Also on the last delivery the bag broke open in transit but I was able to still use the medallions as the dry ice kept them from thawing.
