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.

Real, Natural Ingredients

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.

Frozen for Freshness

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

    Best Raw Brand

    By LoriAnn222 on Dec 3, 2021

    We tried another brand of chicken because Raw Instinct was not available. And there was no comparison to the quality and freshness. I am delighted and simply amazed that Chewy can ship frozen food! It arrived at our doorstep in perfect frozen condition! Do you allow a few extra days when you’re ordering frozen items.

    Dog is better than ever.

    By lyssa on Jul 1, 2021

    I struggled with different brands and trying to transition my dog to a better food. She could not handle it and got diarrhea/ weird looking poop. I transitioned to this immediately and her poop and overall wellness drastically improved. Her poop looks better than it ever has. She isn't hiding under the bed as often anymore (not sure if this was related to diet change at all but this was noticed right after she started the food). I highly recommend this as other brands have ingredients that are not healthy for dogs and causes diseases and illnesses later in life. This is the next best thing to a total raw organ meat diet.

    My dog loves these

    By Hurricane on Jul 4, 2021

    My dog love these. And someone said they smell bad. They have no smell at all. Raw food has very little or no smell. Some people cooking these??? Thats defeating the purpose of having RAW food.

    Great for dogs with allergies

    By Linda on May 21, 2021

    My cairn has been on this food for about a decade. All skin symptoms dissappeared when I started with the raw food. Would highly recommend even if your dog doesn't have allergies!!!

    YUM!! YUM!! YUM!!!

    By OttosMom on Mar 16, 2021

    Just want to let you know how much my little ones love Raw Instinct. I feed this exclusively to my little ones and as soon as I put their bowls down, the food is hoovered up and it's all gone! No coaxing anypuppy to eat anymore. They love this stuff and seem to like the chicken best.

    Unfortunately it’s a no from my dog

    By Carol on Jan 7, 2021

    I wanted this to be buggys new food. I’m trying to have him eat as clean as possible as he is starting to get older. This worked really great In Little amounts (when mixed it with his dry food) but once he started eating this food alone he started getting terrible acid reflux. I made sure to ween him off his old food correctly and I even elongated that period to make sure his body was fully comfortably with the new diet. This May be great for other pups, I’m sad it didn’t work out with buggy
