Transforming the Lives of Pets

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.

Pure, Real Nutrition of Raw in Every Recipe

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 4.7 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Please check my review Product is good but I have a dog who does not like fish of any kind and she shied away from this product. Which makes me feel like I wasted money buying this product and also I noticed she shied away from the chicken meal formula also which she never has done before then I reread the ingredients and I see Salmon meal or oil has been added which makes this product a no for me also. Do you have a grain-free, fish free meal formula that is not diet or puppy oriented. She is an adult around 43lbs. part Golden and mixed? Can you help? January 4, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by My pups LOVE IT!! I have two very healthy dogs that love the dog food! I had bought another brand of excellent dog food and the younger smaller one got sick every time she ate it. I tossed it all out and am only going to use this brand! Also love having it delivered to my door !!!! December 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by It was Great..... I am really disappointed in Natural Instincts....I have been using this food for a few years because I have a dog with some pretty irritating (for her) allergies and recently i have noticed that she was suffering again...only to find they have added CHICKEN FAT!!!! Come on Nature's Variety!!!! Why?!! November 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The breeder we got our Greater Swiss Mountain go from recommended this product. It's the only thing we give her, she's seven and we've had her from a pup. November 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by product great! Highly recommend this product! Great value for this product. August 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Great nutrition for dogs of all ages. Grain free. High level of protein for working/hunting dogs. July 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grain free and no potatoes I was so happy to finally find a dog food that had no potatoes or sweet potatoes. We have a dog who is always having trouble with yeast infection on his pad's of his feet. Well come to find out almost ever dog food and treats have some kind of grain and potatoes in them. For a dog who has yeast infections they have to stay away from as many carbs as they can because what does yeast live on sugars. So when we found this turkey and duck grain free gluten free natural instinct dog food our dog has been doing much better with its itching March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reward for your dog! My dogs love these treats! They are a good reward when I am leaving or when they need to be in heir crate. June 6, 2016
