No Animal Meal
Protein comes from pure animal sources, with absolutely no animal meals, like chicken meal or duck meal. These recipes are made without grain, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meal, or artificial ingredients.
Nutrition Mirroring 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.

Instinct - The Raw Brand
Instinct got their start making raw pet food out of their company-owned facilities in Lincoln, Nebraska. Ever since, they've set out to make the nutrition of raw more accessible to pets and pet parents.
Instinct believes that if they can get the nutrition of raw into more bowls, they'll transform the lives of even more pets. And that’s really why they do what they do. Instinct believes in the power of raw nutrition and its ability to truly unlock our pets’ potential to thrive. Whether it be kibble or 100% raw, every Instinct recipe is guided by the unmatched nutrition of raw.
Based on our belief that raw is the purest form of nutrition, we challenged ourselves to craft a kibble that most closely mirrored the benefits of our raw diets - a kibble with the highest levels of protein from real meat* and unmatched digestibility* for optimal nutrient absorption. The result, Instinct Ultimate Protein Grain-Free Cage-Free Chicken Recipe. (*Compared to other premium natural cat food brands)

This is the best of the premium foods. It is also the only non-prescription food that my 12 year old Maine Coon mix (he of the delicate digestive tract) can eat.
On this ration, the diarrhea and vomiting cleared up, his coat is gorgeous, he is happy and active and feels good. My 8 year old shorthair, who has always been on the thin side, is finally at a good weight and also has a lovely coat.
The food is also extremely palatable and cats being free-fed it should be watched for excessive weight gain. Because the food is coated with freeze-dried raw food, it should be stored in an air tight bin away from heat and light. Normal room temperature is fine, and Amazon has a large selection of suitable storage bins.
This is my third purchase of this food, and I will keep buying it as long as fuss-budget keeps liking it. I may make a change to rabbit in a while just to see what he does. I wish they had small "sample" packs of rabbit to try instead of having to buy a huge bag.
