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

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.

    the pack loves this

    By on

    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 on

    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 on

    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.

    Awesome packaging

    By on

    You can’t imagine how many times I have found the shelves empty of this product at the local pet food stores. Historically I have driven to three or four stores on my shopping day before finding it, despite talking to management in these stores. Thanks, Chewy, for having it and delivering it in a timely fashion, carefully packaged, and on time. As to the product, our dogs are particularly fond of the beef medallions and eschew chicken and lamb, so beef is what we look for. Our girls love the beef, and it has done wonders for their skin & coats, as well as their constitution. The medallions are exactly the right size, easy to store and serve. Two twenty pound beagles each get two medallions You can’t imagine how many times I have found the shelves empty of this product at the local pet food stores.

Two twenty pound beagles each get two medallions, twice daily. It works great for portion control, and it doesn’t break the bank. We like this food, and so do the dogs, so we are very pleased to find it at Chewy so I don’t have to drive for miles trying to find it. Sure I could call ahead, but I’m just not that keen on having to sit in my car making several phone calls every time I want to buy dog food! … more

    Thawed food

    By on

    This item was received thawed. The dry ice was gone and the food was in a big lump. A new bag was sent which we received July 1st. This time the food was still frozen. We still need to know what time the food will be delivered so it doesn’t sit in the sun on a 110 degree day.

    Didn’t agree with my dogs digestive system

    By on

    I think this is a great product, it just didn’t seem to agree with my dogs. My labs eat the Instinct Original dry food, currently beef. I rotate the proteins every 3-4 months. Love it. Thought I’d try the Frozen Raw Medallions. Dogs loved them, but unfortunately, their digestive systems did not. All dogs are different though. Give them a try!

    Delivery delay

    By on

    My dogs love the food, but I had an issue with the fact of the food, which was supposed to be frozen, arrived a few days late and so was already defrosted. I had to keep the whole bag in the refrigerator and can only use half of it.

    Plan ahead

    By on

    These were thawed by the time they were delivered, so I do not recommend buying during the summer months in places like Arizona! Otherwise, the product is great and our dog loves it.

    Their stomach couldn't handle it.

    By on

    I got these to add to their food, but right after eating 2 of them they threw up a few times. One was whimpering the rest of the night. Won't be feeding them anymore. I love Instinct and so did the girls, but their stomachs didn't.
