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 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitty loves it I recently learned that Carageenan if a binder put in wet foods and it causes IBD and cancer in pets and humans. So I only buy pet foods that do not have that ingredient. The Instinct limited ingredient does not have Carageenan as well as several others. October 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This helps my cat with digestive problems. My cat Henry, age 5, has had diarrhea since I got him two years ago; it is at its worst when he eats poultry. Venison helped him but he tired of it. Now he is very happy with this product, to which his veterinarian directed me to mix in 1/4 tsp. psyllium each meal. September 9, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not What We Hoped Our cat, who is normally a good eater, recently lost weight due to a problem with her teeth. After dealing with it (extractions), we ordered this food, because it was high in calories, and we were hoping to get some of the lost weight back on her. Unfortunately, she isn't crazy about it. Not what we were hoping for. August 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by the ingredients in this food are top quality I just started using the limited ingredient lamb cat food recently and it seems to be working better for their stomachs than the regular . My cats seem to really like the taste of this food and I feel that they would vote this food or winner. August 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by recently had surgery working on her having a food allergy but her hardly eats anything but lamb with water is working some she want more gravy in her food but haven't been able to find any. she likes the treats but should eat more food than treats. using treats to make her want to eat August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing food With great ingredients without harmful chemicals i.love it so do my cats. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality food My cat has allergies and this limited ingredients food is perfect . I like to top it off with the Freeze dried rabbit which is also a Natures Variety Instinct product. July 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Part of my cat's regular rotating menu I'm so grateful for nature's variety limited ingredient canned cat food. Rabbit, duck and lamb are part of the novel protein diet that has really played a leading part in eliminating my cat's IBD issues. There are no more scooting episodes, no throwing up, no funky issues with waste...Just quality product with nothing else that it doesn't need. Even carageenan isn't present, which I can't say about the other brand of products from Natural Balance that I just shelved. I wish I hadn't seen it on their label, but I did. I also serve my cats the dry rabbit formula limited ingredient diet. They love it! So now the only thing I'm hoping Nature's Variety will consider are a couple of other limited ingredient flavors: venison, pork, buffalo, pheasant...and add a duck dry limited ingredient too, and I will be fully brand loyal. We just need something else that we can add so there will be more choices for me to keep him from becoming bored on his diet. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing. And don't eliminate any other flavors. It has been a wonderful thing to see my senior cats finally in a good, stable place with their food. : ) March 4, 2016
