Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

Pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece

They put the pure, real nutrition of raw on every piece of Instinct Original by tumbling their kibble with crushed, freeze-dried raw — raising the bar in nutrition and taste.

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.

GIVE BACK

Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition. It only makes sense to share it. Together with Best Friends Animal Society, they're furthering the no-kill movement and their shared mission of transforming and saving the lives of 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

ONE MILLION MEALS

All pets deserve food that's real, nutrient-rich, grain-free and natural. That's why Instinct provides over one million meals annually to the dogs and cats at Best Friends Animal Society adoption centers nationwide. Because what we feed them can make all the difference. Here "we" refers to the pet parent, not Instinct.

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.

  • Their favorite since ~2 months of age.

    By on

    Been feeding my two cats Instinct dry kibble since they were just a month or two old, and today (3.5 years) they're some of the healthiest cats around. While they're now on an all-wet diet, they're still suckers for the occasional bowl of Instinct kibble. Nature's Variety has never dissappointed me, and I will ALWAYS recommend their products.

  • Great Food for All Ages

    By on

    I have 5 cats ranging from 3 months to 18 years. It was impossible to free-feed the kittens without the other cats getting into it and I worried about my elderly cat eating kitten food high in calcium & phosphorus because kidney disease is definitely something to worry about at his age. We mostly feed canned but the kittens have voracious appetites so they have some dry down so they can eat when we’re gone or asleep. I love that this food is appropriate for all ages and the protein is ethically sourced.

  • Grain free

    By on

    My cat boys really like this food. I haven't had any issues with switching them over. They have been eating it for about 3 weeks so far and I don't feel like I have a strong opinion as of yet. The nuggets are small and have a more oily texture to them than I am used to. They boys get excited about eating them!

  • No more puking kitty

    By on

    My Greycie is 18 years old. A few months ago she started puking ... a lot! Like 5 to 6 times a day. It turns out her old food was making her sick. I switched her over to Instinct and she hasn't puked since. She's happy and I'm happy!

  • Instinct Natures

    This is the same food I've been buying for my kitties for a good while. They get a little of this twice a day and some canned. Love having this delivered to my front door. Local stores are out of the big bags, or their senior citizen discounts are inconvenient.
