Transition Instructions

It is always a good idea to start out slowly on a new diet with any pet. Slowly increase the amount of new food being added to the present diet over a period of 5 - 7 days. If any digestive upset or loose stool occurs, make the transition more gradual. It is a good idea to allow your pet's digestive system to calm down and return to normal before proceeding. There is no need to rush this transition. Once your pet is accustomed to Nature's Variety foods, you can rotate freely between forms and flavors.

About Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Cat Food

Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Cat Food
1 ANIMAL PROTEIN

1 ANIMAL PROTEIN

The ingredient list is purposefully simple for pets with food sensitivities. It focuses on one animal protein and one vegetable—versus the mix of each you'll find in most pet foods.

SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL

SIMPLE AND ESSENTIAL

Sometimes what's not included is just as important as what is. These recipes are made with grass-fed meat or cage-free poultry and always made without grain, dairy, eggs, potato, corn, wheat, soy or artificial ingredients.

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 Limited Ingredient Diet 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.

  • This High-Quality Cat Food is Excellent!!!

    By on

    I recently had to change from a brand/company that I had purchased from for many years, and while that canned cat food is apparently still popular, its quality has significantly declined as has been the case with so many companies that have come under new ownership and management and have become so large and diversified that they are cutting corners and including harmful gums and fillers in their products. Nature's Variety is still made by a smaller company and it is essentially a very high-quality product. I have three cats, and although two of them eat a high quality organic raw diet that I make at home, my third cat cannot tolerate that diet due to allergies and textural issues and so I I recently had to change from a brand/company that I had purchased from for many years, and while that canned cat food is apparently still popular, its quality has significantly declined as has been the case with so many companies that have come under new ownership and management and have become so large and diversified that they are cutting corners and including harmful gums and fillers in their products.

She made the transition to Nature's Variety Limited Edition Turkey formula almost seamlessly and my other two cats, on the rare occasions when I also feed it to them, love it too! The texture is uniform and soft, though formed and the smell is a meat smell unlike so many other products being sold these days. The ingredient list is excellent (though I extract the filler peas, but at least they are real peas, though not needed nutritionally, but still so much better than the harmful gums and other ingredients used in other brands). Thank you, Nature's Variety, for making this still excellent product, and Thank you, Chewy.com for carrying it! … more

  • Healthy for my cats and they love it!

    By on

    My two boys love this food which makes me very happy as it does not have all of those 'bad' ingredients. It's very hard to find pet food that does not have harmful by-products, chemicals, etc, that will ultimately hurt my cats. Chewy.com offers this quality food at a fair price, and I love the free shipping.

  • High quality low starch Limited Ingredient food that cats actually love.

    By on

    Continuing on food elimination trial for highly allergic cat who must remain on a Limited Diet for the rest of her life, as will her sister to prevent her exposure to allergens. A Vet Specialist recently clarified, to my great surprise, that an allergy to chicken may not necessarily mean allergy to turkey or duck. She believes that poor quality meat protein and mixing several different meat proteins in cat food as manufacturers commonly do may contribute to food allergies. Nature's Variety Instinct has made the cut as a quality food on several independent nutrition websites. It is also comparatively low in starch content, because being grain free is not enough. I wish it were starch free.

I wish it were starch free. My cats snub their noses at many of the Limited Ingredient brands and eat them only because they have to. But they devour both wet and dry of the Nature's Variety Limited Turkey Formula. It's so great to see them come running for their bowls like they used to before all the allergy problems surfaced. I wish Nature's Variety had a few more choices for rotation, such as venison and duck. I've only found turkey and rabbit, and prefer to save rabbit as a future alternative in case additional allergies to fowl develop. So I continue to be dependent on other Limited Ingredient brands for rotation. But this is my cats' favorite!. … more

  • WOW - Bianca Loves This Stuff!

    By on

    Not only is my rescue cat a very picky eater but she has a sensitive tummy and early-stage kidney disease. So I can't feed her just any old wet food! I emailed Nature's Variety to ask for the sodium and phosphorous levels in all of their wet cat foods (they sent me the info very quickly!) and I decided to try the limited ingredient turkey. Bianca loves this stuff so much that she snarfs down almost an entire 3oz can as soon as I put her food down. This has never happened before and she's 16 years young (12 of them with me) so that tells me that the ingredients really are as wonderful as they appear to be to me, the lowly human in this story.

Thank you, Nature's Variety, for making such an awesome wet food for cats with multiple health issues; and thank you, Chewy, for carrying this food and for selling it at a price that's fair (yes, I'm a comparison shopper!). Please don't ever stop making/selling this food - it is officially Bianca-tested and overwhelmingly approved! :) … more

  • My cat loves it!

    By on

    My picky Sphynx Fellini cat fell in love with this food, which made me very happy, because I heard such good things about it. First, good nutrients, second it's pretty soft, means he gets enough liquid with it, and it's full of vitamins. My other two rescue cats slowly getting into this food too and they are very much addicted to Proplan, no matter how much I tried to introduce them to other brands. So I hope they will convert soon too.

  • Better than the chicken

    By on

    One cat likes the turkey but also not in love. She doesn't finish the small portion I leave for her. Cats love the cheap food best. It's tough switching to a healthier option.

  • Great low phosphorus option for renal impairment

    By on

    I needed to find some low phosphorus canned food my cats would eat. My oldest is having some renal impairment. I tried a lot of options and they tried to bury them all. Luckily two of them loved this from the beginning. No encouragement needed for the switch. They have continued to enjoy it with enthusiasm and I can feel confident I am feeding them healthy food.

  • Not even the strays will touch it

    By on

    Bought this for my 17 yr old indoor cat and he licked the gravy and left the pate untouched. Not a fan. Tried giving it to a couple strays in the area and it goes uneaten. Not sure what to do with it at this point...

  • No fillers or gums!

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have an outdoor cat who hunts for most of his food, but I do supplement one meal for him in the daytime, when cats sleep. I used to give him Newman's Own but wanted more out of a natural food. This Instinct LID has what cats are meant to eat. It even has ground up bone! My cat loves this food and I feel really good about not feeding him gums and fillers - something not natural to any animal. One thing to note, for anyone who hasn't tried this, because it doesn't have any fillers or gums, it is runny and does not stick together like most canned cat foods. This is REAL food only. I love it!

  • Not their favorite

    By on

    I have one cat who has issues if not restricted to limited ingredient diet, so everyone has to eat the limited option. Trying different brands etc. This one was not so well received, may just be my cats, but all but one snubbed it. Gave it a 3 cause there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with food, just not appreciated by my cats
