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 (4 oz patties per day):

Dog WeightAdult Maintenance (patties)Weight Loss (patties)
5 - 15 lbs1 - 21/2 - 1
16 - 25 lbs2 - 31 - 2
26 - 50 lbs3 - 52 - 3

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. Patties 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.

    Raw may be healthy but she hated it and vomited!

    By on

    This was by far the nastiest dog food that I have ever given my fur baby. I served two tours in northern Europe and fed my Rottweiler cow stomach (called Hundwurst) it had grass and insects, you name it whatever was ground up in the cow stomach was in it and I have to say it smelt 10 times better than this stuff. So I even tried cooking this stuff in the micro and the smell ran me out of my kitchen. I ended up throwing out the entire bag minusone patty. I have had to serve my for baby chopped chicken breast and brown rice and carrots and apples since they stopped making the Tylees she has refused to eat anything else.

    Pricy but Worth It

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I was looking for food that was a little less processed and less calorie dense than my pup’s kibble. These patties expand a lot when you crumble them up, helping me fill my pup’s bowl and keep him full. I like that Instinct recipes are formulated by a board-certified veterinary nutritionist. My pup can’t get enough of the taste, though he did reject all raw food at first. I just offered him a frozen patty as a treat. He nibbled on it until he realized it was delicious and then had no problems with the thawed food. The patties thaw overnight in the fridge and rarely make a mess.

    Dogs don't care for it

    By on

    My dogs don't really care for this. One will eat part of it, but neither really seems to like it. I finally cooked it a little and the littliest one will eat some of it then, but even if I mix other fresh foods in it, they just leave it in the bowl. I was hoping to get something healthy that they would also like. Nada for this one.

    Instinct Raw Food

    By on

    Our two yellow labs love the taste! The problem for us is that it’s really mushy making it difficult to measure and dish out. Each bag we’ve used has had a leak. We have to store the bag inside a bowl in the fridge so it doesn’t make a mess. I think the quality of ingredients is fine. It’s just too mushy and messy.

    Miracle Food

    By on

    We have found the miracle food for our senior cavachon! She has to take her medicine with food; vet said she should eat 3x /day. Husband said, I have never seen her willingly eat 3 meals in a day without bribes, and even then, she wouldn't eat. Today she ate 3 full meals! We mixed the new raw food with her kibble and she gobbled it up and asked for more! Now we are going to have to be careful not to feed her too much!

    My dog loves this

    By on

    I have used Instinct products for probably 8 years. Great quality & good price. Tried these patties because I wanted higher quality food than she had been eating when I adopted her. She is crazy about this. Jumps around as I am getting her food in her dish.

    Great food for senior dog.

    By on

    Our dog is a senior dog now and on medicine. She would not take her pills or eat much of anything. Once this food arrive we started putting her pills in this food. The smell and taste is so appetizing, she took all her pills. WOW. After her eating this food, she came over and licked my legs as a THANK YOU.

    My fussy dog love- love- loves this food

    By on

    Feeding my Bichon was a challenge- even home cooked food was not doing the trick. I tried these frozen patties and she went crazy over them. I do feed somewhat less than is on the bag (she eats 5 a day- not 8 as suggested) Her coat is beautiful-and she has the energy of a puppy at age 12. The only down side is that there is nothing to keep the teeth healthy- so you want to add something to chew on. She likes the chicken and rabbit patties- not crazy about the lamb or beef

    Chicken Patty

    By on

    Unfortunately my 3 dogs won't eat these. They have become quite picky the last few years and I'm struggling to find something they will eat. I'm having better luck with the other foods from this brand.
