About Instinct Raw Freeze-Dried Meals for Dogs

100% Raw Meals

Instinct believes that eating a diet rich in raw, unprocessed foods is just as good for our pets as it is for us. They make every meal with the understanding that real, less-processed, whole raw foods can have the power to transform lives.

Upgrade From Kibble to Freeze-Dried Raw


Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Meals contain 3x more real meant and nutrient-rich organs, compared to Instinct Original kibble. That means there’s more animal protein and flavor in every bite! 


Instinct preserves the integrity of their ingredients by keeping them raw, which leaves their nutrients intact. Raw is better for digestion because it’s less processed than cooked kibble.


These Raw Meals are made with 85% meat & organs and 15% fruits, vegetables, vitamins & minerals.


Keep Instinct Freeze-Dried Raw Meals in your pantry for an easy-to-serve raw meal—just scoop and serve! 


These recipes are made without grain, corn, wheat, soy, legumes or artificial colors or preservatives.

My 12 year old is a pup again!

I have a 9 lb Toy Poodle/ Dachshund mix that is almost 13 yrs old, a picky eater and has no teeth. After she had her teeth removed, we tried various canned food pates, which we would have to doctor for her to eat, and she still wouldn't eat most the time. She was getting old and her hips were hurting and we thought she was getting close to passing. She didn't want to take walks and mostly slept. I researched foods and we tried a couple different frozen Raw pellets. She liked them, but we had to cut them in half and add sweet potato, chicken or food toppers to entice her to eat it. You can't heat the frozen raw food and I was trying to get her to eat it and realized it had a tacky/ gummy feel. I wouldn't want to eat that without any teeth! We went camping and I bought the freeze dried pellets and it was a game changer. I have an electric kettle and I boil the water and pour over her food so it all floats. I stir it and let it sit for 10 minutes to absorb the water and cool off. There is still water in the bowl, like a gravy/ broth. She eats it all every time and licks the bowl clean. Correction, she devours it! She is like a puppy and can jump onto the couch again, walks around and even plays! She sits on the back of the couch and watches the world go by. We walk 3 times a day and she is a very happy, spunky dog! Her poop is firm, not runny (unless she gets too many treats/ people food), and not too hard. I know it is expensive, but she doesn't eat much. She gets kibble in the morning and this for dinner. She tries to trick my husband or I into giving her 2 dinners. I highly recommend this food.

Great deal

My dogs had long enjoyed Instinct Raw Meals Frozen Lamb bits, and I was disappointed when that product was discontinued. Freeze-dried? For reals? With no other options, I reluctantly purchased this product from my local brick-and-mortar. I slowly began to appreciate the genius. It can be served as is, or it can be moistened if dog prefers. Easier to store and travel with! What I love about this product from Chewy is that my local brick-and-mortar carries only the 9 oz size of the lamb recipe. Chewy offers the 24-oz size, which is great for my two large dogs. And while it is nearly three times as much product, the Chewy price is only slightly more than twice the amount. Thank you, Chewy!

Great Item!

I am very happy with this product and Chewy as a whole! I ordered a product from a company in Arizona and was having a lot of trouble finding something similar that my dogs would eat. I called up chewy and the agent I spoke to was wonderful and helped me find this product which is exactly what me and the pups were looking for!

Best solution for senior dogs

The Raw Meals have been the perfect solution for our senior Peekapoo and Yorkie. They both have digestive problems which make it difficult to find the best foods for them. They both tolerate and love the Lamb RW Meals.

A great treat

We use this as a treat and not dog food. Our picky golden doodle loves them.

My Havanese picky eater loves it

I switched from Stella and Chewy. I was tired of having to break the pattie’s with my hands, not to mention it leaving my hands a bit greasy. Not ideal when traveling and no water to wash hands. The large bag didn’t even last a month. Instinct Raw Meals is perfect! It’s molded into a kibble shape and the size is perfect for small dogs and big dogs too. It’s light weight easy to pour into the bowl and great for traveling as well. The best part is that it’s also freezed dried raw with limited ingredients. Excellent for dogs that have food sensitivities and allergies. Freezed dried raw is also great for all dogs. As soon as I got the package, I opened it up and let Myles sample a taste. He ate it right away out of my hands without hesitation. Normally, he wouldn’t eat anything else after he had his breakfast. Surely, he loves it. I started Myles with the Lamb flavor. He’ll try the Beef then Chicken next. I hope this bag last at least a month. Glad I made the switch.

my dogs are obsessed

If this wasn’t so expensive I would strictly feed them this dog food! My dogs LOVE IT even as just a treat. Unfortunately I can’t afford it so I put about 6-10 pieces of this in their dog food and they eat it all up.

The best high value treat/raw meal out there!

We use as training treats and our dog loves them. High quality, low calorie, high protein.

Great for training treats

I use them for high value training treats. They don’t crumble in your pocket like many others and the dogs love them. Very small in size so no chewing needed. Perfect for training.

Puppy Love

My 10 Mo old large breed pup loves this food (all flavors). He isn’t picky, but not really food motivated. He will eat this as soon as I put it in his bowl.
