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

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.

    ALLERGIC CAT

    By on

    I bought this for my Maine coon cat Fluffy who has developed an allergy to something causing her to pull her hair out. She has always been on a grain free food but lately seemed to lose interested in her food. The first time I gave her this she seemed to like it . There was no transition at all. I still give her a choice but she always prefers the new food. Althought she leaves most of the freeze dried pieces. Too early to say if this helps with the allergy.

    I am SO happy another Bengal owner told me to give this food a try!! Don’t change a thing in this food, I’ve never seen my kitty so happy and full of energy! I have always bought him very high quality food because of his breed & I FINALLY found a food that has amazingly balanced nutrition and he enjoys!!! I also get the raw mixers to sprinkle on top. Yay!!!! THANK YOU Instinct :-) from Jag, the Bengal

    We have success!

    By on

    I was really nervous about trying this brand even though it's such a good option for cats. I have a fairly picky eater, and I didn't know if she would be one of the cats that enjoyed the raw bits but not the kibble. I started out feeding it to her as a treat. A few raw bits here or a few pieces of kibble there. She seems to like both and I've had no issues so far. It's only been a few days, but I'm feeling hopeful that I have finally found a dry food brand I trust that my cat also likes.

    Not so much

    By on

    I purchased several kinds of food to help one of my cats gain weight. My two cats liked the "raw" bits, but ate the kibble only when they ran out of other options. I would not recommend this unless you have cats who would eat anything.

    Cats just weren’t fans

    By on

    It’s weird. We try to ‘treat’ our cats and splurge on something a bit pricier and higher quality but they don't like this food at all. They pushed it out of their food dishes. They didn’t like the freeze dried bits either. Not sure what it was but they just didn’t like this food.

    Asia seems to like this as a treat. It doesn't replace the Fancy Feast cans that she likes for a moment but doesn't finish. It's healthy and nutritious.

    Happy Kitty

    By on

    My cat really seems to love this food, I think it’s the freeze dried chicken. She’s a rescue & missing a few teeth, but the kibble is small enough for her to munch.

    Raw food mixed kibble at affordable price

    By on

    Two cats age 14 and 15 have loved this food. They eat all the raw food pieces first! Only thing, I would like the kibble to have smaller pieces. The cats threw it up at first.

    The animals love this brand. I use not only the cat food but the toy breed for my small dogs. Have no problem with them munching down.

    Cat loves it!

    By on

    My cat loves this food, especially the freeze-dried pieces! We call them the marshmallows and she usually eats these first. My only complaint is that some bags have more of the "marshmallows" than others, so I bought an extra back of the freeze dried pieces to accommodate.
