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


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 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.


Supplies fatty acids that nourish the skin. It is also highly digestible and easily utilized for energy.


Made from green tea leaves that have been carefully harvested and ground. It provides great taste and aroma.


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

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dandruff and hair loss?? I switched my siamese from Nature's Variety Chicken Meal Formula to this limited ingredient food because the vet said she needed to lose weight. I mixed the 2 foods to start and my cat would pull the kibble from this new food and eat it only... that was the good news as she clearly loved it. She's been on it for awhile now but has not lost weight and now she is shedding excessively and has terrible dandruff. Both things she did not do before. The only thing that changed was this food. I'm wondering if limited ingredients is leaving our pets needing other ingredients... more omega fats, maybe? I'd love to know if anyone else has experienced this? Thank you! August 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food My cats had no trouble transitioning over to this brand and flavor. The limited ingredients seem to be helping the food allergies. It is terribly expensive but has more appropriate ingredients for our animals -- more meat! Not all the fillers. I believe this product did not have caarageen which I was trying to get around too. August 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helped with food allergies Our cat had skin allergies on most other brands, this worked like a miracle. Our cat loves this food. August 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great ingredients! The cats don't gobble this down but I have high hopes for this canned cat food. They will eat some so I went from 5.5 ounce cans to 3 ounce cans so I don't feel like I'm wasting so much food! Limited ingredients (one of them has a sensitive stomach) is great. I just ordered another flavor (duck) so I'll switch it up and see how they react. I'm just not going to buy the food they love - way too many ingredients and probably way not healthy for them either. July 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for all kitties! I have 5 cats, two of which have health problems. They all can eat this food without getting sick or having diarrhea. No more having to do separate feedings so they don't get the wrong food! August 6, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hidden MSG This product, like many other pet foods, contains "natural flavors, " a code word for MSG, which is a known nerve toxin. I bought it by mistake, do not recommend it, and will not be buying it again. July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Catfood for Sensitive Stomachs This is the only food that my sensitive stomach cat does not throw up. Plus, the other three love it. I tried switching to another limited ingredient brand, and they didn't like it. July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for cats with food allergies My cat with food allergies responded well to this food, much less itching and compulsive grooming and her mouth blisters went away once we switched to this product. The other 6 cats also enjoy it. It's great to have one food that everyone likes. June 24, 2016
