Description

Natural nutrition begins with the Instinct by Instinct by Nature's Variety Be Natural Real Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food. The recipe starts with cage-free chicken for plenty of all-natural protein to support healthy, lean muscles, and never contains any fillers, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meals or artificial preservatives and colors. Guided by the belief in the power of raw, each kibble piece is tumbled with crushed freeze-dried raw chicken to raise the bar in nutrition and flavor. And your pooch will taste and feel the difference!

Key Benefits
  • Made with cage-free chicken as the first ingredient for lean, healthy muscles, plus whole grains like brown rice and barley.
  • Raw on every piece as the kibble is tumbled with minimally-processed, crushed freeze-dried raw chicken for real meat and flavorful nutrition.
  • No fillers and zero corn, wheat, soy, chicken or poultry by-product meal, brewer's rice, artificial colors or preservatives.
  • With added vitamins and minerals so it’s a complete and balanced diet in every bowl for dogs of all ages.
  • Made in the USA with the finest ingredients from around the world.

New look, same great formula! This product has recently gone through a packaging change from Nature's Variety Prairie to Instinct by Nature's Variety Be Natural. Customers may receive the old packaging during this transition.

    Great Option for Grain Free

    By on

    I bought this for my boy (lab/pit mix) after feeding him a grain-free diet of Merrick kibble for almost 2 years. After hearing all the talk about grain-free possibly causing heart issues I figured I would switch to something else just to be safe. This food has great quality ingredients that make me feel good about what I'm giving my boy. And he scarfs it down when I give it to him so the flavor must be pretty good :) This is our new go-to food!

    Instinct has been a stale in my house for years. I wanted to try the grain-full formula. 8 paws up.
