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 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.


Naturally freeze-dried to lock in nutrients and taste without the use of chemicals or additives.


Provides beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids to promote healthy skin and a shiny coat.


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


Source of important vitamins, minerals and carotenoids to help support the immune system.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Chewy This bag of dog food had at least twice the amount of raw food bits than what we usually purchase May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased with the variety options and prices I'm very pleased with the prices and variety of products to choose from. The autoship makes it easy and convenient. April 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarge Loves it & great for his skin, too. This is a great natural food for our German Shepherd. No fillers. He loves the taste so much that we do not have to add people-food to it to get him to eat it. This food helps keep his skin from itching so much during the winter months. As always, with Chewy, the expiration date is WAY in the future, so it is always fresh. We use auto-ship and love how easy it is to change the delivery date when we need to. Thanks Chewy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Kibble My active dogs compete in Agility, Rally, Obedience and Barn Hunt. I prefer to keep them fit and trim and this kibble does just that. Both dogs seem to do better on a Grain Free diet too. I find that I can rotate between the proteins too without any belly issues. While I'd like to be organized enough to feed raw, I am not. I like to give them raw chicken necks once a week but rarely remember to thaw them out. This kibble contains freeze dried raw pieces that the dogs love... and I don't have to remember because it's already in there! My dogs are healthy, have firm stools, and shiny coats so I'll be keeping them on the Instinct Raw Boost Kibble for a long time to come! October 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog says, "scrumpdillyumpcious." I say… YEA! My dog is loving Nature's Instinct Raw Boost. No more grain-allergy problems -- itching, pulling hair out and vet visits for antibiotics due to skin infections. She no longer dilly dallies…. she eats! Her digestive system is happy, too. And I love the fact that I ordered a large supply online, I didn't have to carry a heavy bag to a cash register and then home…. UPS brought it to my door. And I consider myself a good shopper -- and Chewy's prices were the best. -- B.Joy January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Brand!! We love this brand of food...all of our animals love it and do great on it! Their coats changed (much healthier and shinier). they stay regular and their tummy's are happy and calm (once we figured out everyone's allergies that is). :) After seeing the dramatic difference, I will never change them to another brand of food! The wet and raw food is great too; we buy them on occasion. Happy and healthy dogs and cat in our home! September 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yummy! Yummy! I usually had hard time to ask my little one to eat. After switching to Nature's Variety, she is doing a lot better. We both like this product as it does not contain potato so it is lower in calories & carb which does better in maintain in body weight. We also tried the Duck & Turkey with Raw Boost. She likes that too! Even though price is little bite higher but as long as the little one like it & willing to eat her meal, it is totally worth it! August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Revamped my dogs food drive I had been feeding my dog the Chicken flavor Nature's Variety raw boost for a while, which he enjoyed. I switched to the Lamb and Salmon flavor and it has seemed to spark his appetite again (he is a low food drive border collie). He is excited again about food with this new flavor and is looking as healthy as ever! April 25, 2015
