The Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw Is In Everything Instinct Does

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.

    Good brand but not a favorite flavor

    By on

    I accidentally ordered this salmon flavor (I usually buy the chicken which he likes) and my cat really wouldn't eat it...but in all fairness, he wont eat any cat food that is of a fish nature , so I gave the bag to the shelter and hope other kitties like it.

    I bought a bag of this for my cat recently since they were out of her usual rabbit. Everything was fine, she ate it but man did it make her breath SMELL. Even with her usual greenies she stunk.

    It is a winner!!

    By on

    My cats love this food...fed them Wellness dry cat for years and felt they were losing their enthusiasm for it...did some research on other good brands ingredients and found this one to meet my satisfaction...I would give it five stars but I really don't like the ziplock enclosure on the bag...very unfriendly to open and close...

    Stinks like rotting fish, cat hardly interested

    By on

    You'd think that with such a positive response from customers, that it would work well for my cat....not the case. Not only is he BARELY interested in it (once served, he looks at it then walks away...comes back later & eats a very small amount then takes a drink pretty much right after), but it STINKS. I can barely stomach serving it to him. You'd think that because cats are supposed to like eatting fishy-tasting things, that he'd be in heaven with this food, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Perhaps Nature's Variety has changed the recipe since I last purchased THREE LARGE BAGS (oops) several months ago... I don't know. I wouldn't recommend it, but if you decide to try it like I You'd think that with such a positive response from customers, that it would work well for my cat....not the case.

Animal food manufacturers should all offer small, free or inexpensive samples so we can try them out first. I like to buy this kind of stuff in bulk to save money (and time on the computer or store), but this time buying bulk was a mistake. … more

    Instinct helped my cat's digestion issues. He's in love with their wet foods and the dry food is helping with his weight loss too!

    My cats won’t eat it

    By on

    I’ve heard good things about these Instinct foods for cats but they’re not a hit at my house. I’m sure it’s a quality food and I know other people’s cats eat them but none of my 3 cats will. They are exceptionally picky so I keep trying.
