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

Instinct's Responsibility as The Raw Brand


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.


Delicious and nutritious pet food should only use real ingredients. For Instinct, this means all-natural, real meat, fruits and vegetables, with nothing artificial.


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.


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.


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

    Not too sure

    By RhettsMomma on May 29, 2021

    I bought this because of the reviews and wanting to feed my boy a raw diet. I don’t think he likes it. Ever since switching him to this he won’t really eat it unless I hand him it. He has also been feeling really warm. He hasn’t lost energy so I don’t think he is sick. All the changes happened which I put him on this good. Maybe it’s just not for him. He does like the freeze dried chicken pieces though.

    Picky puppy loves it!

    By Sarah on Apr 7, 2021

    My 10 pound grand puppy mix would turn his nose up at everything except freeze dried dog food. Meal time was painful getting the right mix of hard and freeze dried to entice him to eat. I love that this brand has them mixed already. I admit I bought the large bag and added two more bags of freeze dried to get just the right balance for him and now he eats it all without any fuss. He doesn’t have trouble with grains so I like that this includes them for a well balanced diet. My older dog takes this over his own food every time, they both love it.

    Good overall

    By Stacey on Mar 27, 2021

    I switched to this brand after my dog seemed to lose all interest in her previous brand of food. While she seems to like this one alright, I won’t lie, I wish there were not freeze dried pieces in it. She loves them more than the actual food. She picks all of the pieces out (of course making a mess) and then stops eating and doesn’t eat all day until she realizes mom isn’t going to give her more just so she can only eat the freeze dried pieces. Because if this she has only been eating about half of what she normally does in a day. Overall, I would say this is a good choice, but just be aware that your dog might prefer the handful of freeze dried pieces over the actual food.

    High quality puppy kibble

    By Steph on Feb 12, 2021

    Eventually, we plan to cook food for our pup, but we wanted to make sure she’s getting all the nutrients she needs while she’s growing so quickly. A vet recommended a few brands, including this one, and we feel really good about the ingredients in it. Plus, our pup loves it!

    Excellent ingredients and a happy pup

    By Blaircavapoo on Sep 4, 2020

    My pup is super picky and was being fed the cheapest type of food on the market. She refused to eat anything but the crap food ... then Petsmart told me about this food. We tried it and she loves it! Chewy always has it in stock and it’s not on the shelves at my local Petsmart often- so we are ordering from chewy

    My puppy loves it!

    By Kyra on Jul 16, 2020

    I bought this food to try mixing it with my puppy's current food regimen, to provide some variety in her diet and add some protein boost. She's gotten the raw boost packages before and really enjoyed it. She loves this food! And she has excellent coat quality too, very soft and lush. She's not very picky, so that was never a problem. But I've noticed less paw licking and chewing since adding this food to her regular food.
