About Instinct Raw Boost Dog Food

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

About Instinct

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.

    Great food!

    By Zucchini on May 18, 2021

    My dog did well on this after having issues with Purina and Victor and not thriving on Diamond Naturals. It’s definitely a step up from the Be Natural line and I recommend it over that! It’s a great food, just not budget friendly. Only thing I’d caution against is they don’t disclose the calcium:phosphorus on the bag so Instinct should add it to the bag. Otherwise, I highly recommend if you can afford it!

    Not recommend

    By Park on Apr 29, 2021

    Ever since my dog started this kibble, he had difficulty holding his urine. I noticed he started to pee indoor, sometimes just small amount. He used to be very good with his routine. So not sure what Ingredient in the kibble cause the incontinence. After switching him to a different diet, he was his good old self again and no more pee in the house.

    Best dog food!!

    By JaxPuppy on Feb 11, 2021

    I can't say enough about how great this food has been for my 1.5 year old pit mix. He has a sensitive stomach, but we have had no issues since switching to this food. The switch was seemless and he gobbles this food down at every meal (which i haven't seen him do on any other dog food). There is plenty of freeze dried raw in every scoop. I don't find the smell of the salmon to be offensive.

    Dog didn’t like

    By Skye on Feb 10, 2021

    My dog picked out all the raw bits and left the kibble. She would go all day without eating and she never did that on her old food (same brand) different style (puppy natural) I think I will stick to the Instinct Natural line.

    mixed feelings

    By Alicia on Jul 6, 2020

    I usually buy the Instinct Raw Boost Grain Free for small breed. But with all the talk regarding grain free diets I decided to try this one out. It does not have nearly as much raw freeze dried bits as the other one and one of my dogs eats everything but the other one loves instinct products and won’t touch it. I have to mix it with her old food and even then she picks it and will spit this food out. Not really the products fault. I’m curious to see if a small breed product will be made in this line.

    My Corgis love this food!

    By Debbie on Jul 25, 2020

    I've been through a couple different kinds of foods since trying to find a food that's not grain free (with all the talk of grain free being bad these days). My Corgis love it and they don't seem to have any of the allergy issues that we had trouble with in the past with other brands.

    Dog food review

    By Missy on Sep 1, 2020

    She loved the salmon flavor and readily ate it which is not what she was doing with her previous flavor.
