Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consider grain-free foods for my pet?

A dog and cat's natural diet is high in meat, poultry, and fish protein and low in carbohydrates. Instinctive nutrition helps dogs and cats thrive, nourishing muscles and building strong bones. Improved skin and coat, weight management and increased energy are some of the amazing testimonials we receive about our food.

What are the components of superior nutrition?

At Nature's Variety, we believe superior nutrition for dogs and cats starts with healthy, natural ingredients. This means high quality animal proteins like meat, poultry, and fish should make up the majority of your pet's diet. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are also beneficial, providing many vital nutrients for your pet's health and well-being.

Where do your meat and poultry come from?

Nature's Variety is committed to using high quality, safe ingredients from government-inspected facilities. Our natural ingredients are continuously inspected for quality and tested for analytical compliance before being accepted at our facilities. We do not source any of our meat or poultry from China. All of our poultry and pork come from the U.S., our beef is from the U.S. and New Zealand, our lamb is from the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand, our venison is imported from Australia and New Zealand, and our rabbit is imported from France and Italy. We are very stringent in our sourcing standards and prioritize building close relationships with our vendors.

Where are your products made?

All Nature's Variety foods and treats are manufactured in the United States – including our Raw Frozen Diets, Instinct kibble and cans, Prairie kibble, and all treats.

What is your animal testing policy?

At Nature’s Variety, we are passionate about pets and deeply concerned for the emotional and physical health of all animals, large and small. All animals are treated humanely and compassionately throughout their lives. The test facilities we contract with are under federal inspection; all animals are cared for in accordance with established animal welfare rules and sanitation standards. These facilities have a “no-kill” policy, choosing to adopt-out the animals to loving homes after a few years. Moreover, whenever possible, we use in-home testing protocols, recruiting the voluntary services of our employees' pets and the pets of our loyal customers.

Is your food human grade?

All of the materials used in our raw diets are obtained from USDA-inspected facilities (or meet USDA requirements in the case of imports) and from animals that have passed ante- and post-mortem inspection. Our quality control and quality assurance programs include but are not limited to: Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOP’s), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s), a Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) program, regular lot segregation, and other industry best practices. That said, our manufacturing facilities are used to produce pet food rather than human food, and since this is not in line with the USDA's definition of human grade, our foods cannot be classified as being human grade.

What is Meal, such as Chicken Meal?

High quality, protein specific meals are simply a dried and more concentrated form of the meat, poultry or fish protein. It is important to make sure the meal is protein specific (Beef Meal, Lamb Meal), and not generic like Meat Meal or By-Product Meal, which by definition can contain any species of animal.

What are prebiotics and probiotics and why are they included in your foods?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that live in your pet's intestinal tract. They ferment specific food types into amino acids, vitamins, and fatty acids to nourish your pet. Probiotics help aid digestion and prevent harmful bacteria from colonizing in the intestinal tract. Prebiotics, such as inulin, can be thought of as food for the probiotics. Bacteria ferment a specific type of non-digestible fiber found in natural sources like inulin. Nature's Variety foods include prebiotics to ensure that your pet receives 100% of the benefits from the probiotics.

    It is hard to find healthy treats for our lab-boxer mix. Instinct by Nature's Variety has proven to be good food for him so I tried the treats. He shoes not "jump for joy" but he does eat them and I am comfortable I am giving him something healthy.

    My little min pin loves these biscuits, I made sure they were grain free so that he won't get all the preservatives in the cheap store bought ones. Will definitely buy again and are reasonably priced. I don't buy him the cheap ones, not got for a dog.

  • My Golden loves these!

    By on

    I switched to these healthy "cookies" when one of my Goldens was diagnosed with cancer. Great grain free and healthy treats with anti-oxidants. Now I give them to my 5 month old Golden and she loves them! Great product and Chewy delivers them quickly and I haven't found a better price elsewhere.
