Transforming the
Lives of Pets

Nature's Variety Instinct believes that everything we feed our pets should be real, whole, pure and as close to its natural state as possible. They are on a mission to transform the lives of pets and make it possible for more people to feed their own pets the pure, real nutrition that only comes from raw.

Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw
in Every Recipe

Instinct is on a mission to transform the lives of pets through the pure, real nutrition of raw. Their belief in the power of raw inspires every food they make. Instinct has carefully crafted their foods to provide easy ways to incorporate raw into your pet's diet.

Real Food for Real Nutrition

PURE ANIMAL PROTEIN SOURCES

Instinct believes protein should primarily come from pure animal sources. Animal protein provides all the essential amino acids, which vegetable protein alone can't provide.

Instinct never uses fillers like grain, gluten, corn, wheat and soy, because they think every ingredient should have a specific nutritional and functional purpose.

REAL BENEFITS

Real meats, whole fruits and vegetables and turmeric are a few of the ingredients Instinct uses to provide naturally derived nutrients and enzymes for overall wellness.

The Mindful Choices Instinct Makes

Every Instinct recipe shows the careful, deliberate approach they take in crafting their food. They use only real ingredients, and you'll never find artificial colors, flavors or preservatives or fillers like corn, wheat or soy.

BUTTERNUT SQUASH

Well-balanced food source that contains fiber, vitamins, minerals and beta-carotene.

CHICKEN EGGS

Provide a complete amino acid profile, including essential nutrients for optimal health.

TAPIOCA

An all-natural hypoallergenic starch that is highly digestible, grain-free and gluten-free.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Freeze dried coated kitty love I have been searching everywhere for this food and chewy had it at a great price. I got it for my cats way back and it got taken off pet supermarket shelves. Thanks chew chew July 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful luscious coat Ever since I've started my cats on Nature's Variety, I've seen a consistent improvement in their appearance and health. When I first adopted my cats, their coats were flat, in my case a dull gray. Since then, after nearly 6 months, their coats have become much softer, lighter (they don't feel oily or anything# and prettier. Their dull grays have now taken on a shimmer and could even be called silver in some areas. My newest addition, a long haired cat that refuses to be groomed for too long, has less hairballs even only after about a month of having the new diet. All of them are more active #even more jingle balls scurrying through the house at night) and eager to rush to have dinner. In regards to specifically the Salmon formula, it smells fresh like fish, a tasty protein to rotate through and most of all, the cats enjoy it. I'm not sure if my cats have tried to new formula yet, but so far they've enjoyed everything that's been out to eat. August 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Food but a Bit Pricy I have to say that I really like Nature's Variety, both the wet food and the dry. I didn't realize at first that they even made a dried food, just wet. I was really excited over the dry food. I'm trying to have a little variety in my cat's dry food. I have one that seems to have an allergy from one food but another cat that won't eat anything else. These are great bite sized chunks. I love all the natural ingredients, especially no grain. You can also tell that these are salmon because you can really smell it. It's also nice that most of my cats enjoy eating it. The only thing that made me rate this 4 stars is the price. $20 for a 5 lb bag is quite a bit of money. I'm sorry to say but with 6 cats, that 5 lbs doesn't go very far. In the end, it's a great cat food just a touch pricy. February 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grain Free and my cats love it! I have made the switch from Natural Balance to Natures Variety. The only food my kitten did well on. He had horrible diarrhea when I got him. After switching to the raw diet it was the best I could have done for him. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yummy My cats love this food. I used it in addition to the Natural Variety canned food for a balanced diet. November 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product. This food is fantastic, my cats love Nature's Variety, and I love the healthy food. July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for cat with chicken allergy Our older kitty can no longer eat chicken and finding something without any poultry that she would also eat was a huge challenge. She loves this food and is tolerating it really well. The new formula is better than the previous version of the food. February 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Grain Free Kibble, But... My picky eater kitten just doesn't seem to like it. I sometimes mixed this flavor with NV's freeze dried lamb. He'd eat the lamb pieces, and leave the kibble alone for a while until he can't stand the hunger anymore. He likes the rabbit and the duck flavor ones, though. August 24, 2014
