THE BENEFITS OF RAW

Instinct Ultimate Protein has unmatched digestibility for optimal nutrient absorption, compared to other premium natural brands. All with the pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece.

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.

    So far so good

    By on

    I have had a desire to give Spooky Mew a more nutritious "raw" food that he will consume. That last part "that he will consume" was most important. He not only tried it the 1st time but has eaten it consistently now for two weeks with no complaints or complications(no stomach upset)! He still wants canned but this is a puurrfect fit for in between.

    Excellent as a mix or primary ferret kibble

    By on

    I love this food, no peas, no legumes, no sweet potatoes, all of which can cause bladder stones. Some are concerned about tapioca starch, but although high glycemic, when mixed with high protein it can actually balance blood glucose, and it provides probiotic action in the gut. Mixed with Wysong DS, it deters the diarrhea often associated with that very rich food. Our kibble-fed ferrets love this and their winter coats are coming in gorgeous on it. The elderly ferrets find it easy to eat.

    Excellent cat food!

    I have a Maine Coon and a Persian cat. They both love this cat food more then any other they have ever eaten... Is a very large hit. Wish that it came in a larger bag so it could be a little less expensive... Rita

    My cat loves this

    By on

    My vet told me I needed to switch my cat to a high protein dry food. The previous food she was eating was actually high in carbs. My cat doesn't like wet food and prefers dry food but she's picky. I went through 3 brands before finding Instinct and she immediately loved it.

    They like it, but it’s not their favorite

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    They like it but it’s not their favorite. I wish that they made turkey high protein without eggs and the same for the duck without eggs. They love the chicken high protein.

    My cats love this and the cage free chicken flavor. I sometimes give them the Instict wet food pouches but they seem to prefer this dry food instead.They're very hard to please :-)

    Just tried this

    By on

    I have 5 very finicky cats with sensitive stomachs. I've been buying Instinct Ultimate Protein with Chicken and sometimes run out. Don't always need the big bag just for a week or two so decided to try the smaller bag of Duck recipe. They love it and their stomachs love it! Happy cats--Happy cat Mom!!

    Cats Didn't Approve

    By on

    My cats were not keen on it. I was hoping to add protein variety to their diet but it's looking like they just want chicken.

    I buy Instinct Duck cat food mainly for my ferrets. I combine it with two other ferret foods to create a mix. The cats like it also.
