Questions & Answers

21 Customer Questions


It states finest ingredients "from around the world" exactly where and what are the ingredients? Why would they need to get ingredients from other countries?
Answer by ChewyDec 29, 2017
Nature's Variety is committed to using high quality, safe ingredients from government-inspected facilities. The natural ingredients are continuously inspected for quality and tested for analytical compliance before being accepted at their facilities. They do not source any of the meat or poultry from China. All of the poultry and pork come from the U.S., the beef is from the U.S. and New Zealand, lamb is from the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand, venison is imported from Australia and New Zealand, and the rabbit is imported from France and Italy. They are very stringent in their sourcing standards and prioritize building close relationships with the vendors.

What is "Montmorillonite Clay" and is it harmful?
Answer by ChewyOct 18, 2017
Montmorillonite is a clay that helps with anti-caking. Made primarily of colloidal silicate, it contains over 50 ultra-trace mineral compounds. This ingredient is safe for pets to consume.

Do they use non GMO peas and other vegetables?
Answer by ChewyMar 11, 2018
This product is not GMO-free.

What is the taurine content on a dry matter basis?
Answer by ChewyMay 07, 2020
Instinct does not test for taurine in any of their formulas. Meat naturally contains a lot of taurine through amino acids methionine and cysteine and is the primary source of naturally derived taurine. Because their recipes are meat-rich at Instinct, all recipes have more than adequate levels of these naturally-occurring amino acids given the amount of animal ingredients they include. Because taurine naturally occurs in their recipes, they do not need to supplement with taurine in their diets.

Formula change :(

My cat has eaten this food for years but the formula changed and now it contains chicken, which she can't have. Very disappointed to have to find a new food my picky, geriatric cat with IBD will tolerate.

duck duck cat

This was a trial product for my home. I haven't used the product before, but I have used this brand. The brand goes over really well for my oldest cat. The duck pate upon opening doesn't look like other pate's. It is pretty smooth looking, my oldest cat didn't seem to care at all. This product is also a winner in my home,

Formulation changed in small cans

Small cans no longer made in the USA and the formulation changed (smooth, gelatinous texture instead of small chunky meat texture). Cats will no longer eat this product.

Not all that

Idk what's up with Instinct lately, but my cat won't have anything to do with it. He won't eat the rabbit and now he won't eat this either. I can't say if it's good or bad. Just that MY cat won't eat it.

Formula change and not made in USA

I reached out to customer service because my cats stopped eating it and the texture is weird like soft pudding. The label says "product of Thailand" instead of the USA like it used to say. Customer service confirmed they opened plants in Thailand so that's where it is made now. Very disappointing.

Frustrated by Formula Changes

My cats loved this brand’s rabbit flavor until one day they didn’t. We switched to the duck and they loved that until this latest case of 3oz cans. Now they don’t even want to sniff it. My local pet store has some old formula left and I guess I’ll buy those up while I try to make the third food migration in six months. This brand is too pricey to keep rolling the dice. I’m disappointed because the cats were thriving and I love a quality food I can stock up on at Chewy but also find in my rural community if I run out before my next autoship.

Kitty love

My kitties love this! Instinct was recommended by a pet nutritionist since switching we no longer have allergic issues.

Has chicken now!!

We always buy instinct brand wet cat food because our cats are intolerant to chicken. But they quietly changed their recipe and the “original real duck recipe” has chicken now! They needed to make this a lot more clear on their product description

Formula changed

My cat has been loving this food for years. This winter they were out of the 3 oz cans so I had to get the 5.5 oz cans. Food was hard, like a hockey puck. He reluctantly ate it. Finally, the 3 oz cans were back in stock! Unfortunately, the formula changed again, this time to a pudding-like texture. So disgusting, my cat will barely touch that. I’m at a loss. What happened to the old formula, soft pate with gravy? The larger cans are too hard, the smaller cans are too soft and Goldilocks over here is looking for “just right!” Big time fail, instinct!
