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.


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


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


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


Helps maintain the proper balance of acid and alkaline throughout the body.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by well worth the money In treating our dog's pancreatitis we were looking for healthy canned foods and a variety, not the ordinary beef, chicken and turkey. The three we've tried so far have been excellent: salmon, rabbit, venison, and low in fat. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs LOVE LOVE LOVE this canned food It is very important to me that my dog food products are grain free. This canned food has been my dogs favorite by far. I have given them the Blue Buffalo canned Salmon, Red meat and Chicken formula. The basic instinct rabbit food is by far their favorite. They don't walk away and turn their nose up at this food. May 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product got my dog to eat. My dog was diagnosed with Stage 5 Lymphoma and towards the end of her chemo treatments she would not eat at all. This is the only food I could get her to eat. She likes both the Rabbit, Venison and the Duck brand. May 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Instinct Success Just gave the Rabbit Instinct canned food to my two doodles, mixed with some dry. They LOVED it! I don't know if dogs really care about changing up their food flavors but the way they gobbled it up and licked their bowls makes me think they recognized something new. So far they've been fans of the beef and chicken as well. Great product! The Instinct biscuits are also excellent! April 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for dogs with sensitive stomachs This is the only canned dog food that all of our dogs can eat. One of our dogs is allergic to chicken, turkey, duck, beef, lamb and venison. She gets diarrhea if she eats any of those meats. April 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The difference the food has made. Our 4 year old Lab/shepherd mix has been having different issues with anxiety and other things. We have moved to a new Holistic Vet. and the food was one of the suggestions he said to try. We are very happy with the results we are seeing. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This food seems has great appeal to my English Setter. I give him one-half of a five ounce can with Fromm game bird dry nuggets (which have been a long-standing favorite of his). He seems to really like the combination, and it gives him some variation from the Nature's Variety Instinct beef canned food that I also feed him with the Fromm nuggets now and then. February 22, 2016
