Our Nutrition Philosophy
Nature’s Variety believes dogs and cats should eat pure, unaltered, whole foods that complement their physiology – just as nature intended. Our foods are inspired by raw food, which we believe is the pinnacle of pet nutrition. Our formulas combine meat, poultry, and fish protein with other simple, natural, high quality ingredients to provide a variety of forms, flavors, and textures.
Since individual pets are unique and have special preferences and needs, we empower people to choose between forms and flavors to give their pet optimal health and happiness.
We are committed to using the latest research and nutritional knowledge to evaluate, innovate, and improve our foods. This dedication to the integrity of our brand goes beyond the finished product – it also includes our business ethics, ingredient sourcing, co-packing partnerships, and compliance with pet food regulations.
Finally, we are committed to actively sharing our expertise with others to foster a deeper understanding of pet nutrition and the transformative power of Nature’s Variety.
At Nature’s Variety, we believe raw is the best nutrition for dogs and cats. Our philosophy about raw food inspires everything we do and every product we make. We know that when dogs and cats are nourished as nature intended, they will thrive. Here are some of the reasons we believe so strongly in the power of raw…

What is Raw?
Instinct Raw Frozen Diets are formulated like the ancestral diet of dogs and cats with 95% meat, organs, and raw ground bone, and with 5% wholesome fruits and vegetables. Dogs and cats are meat eaters by nature. Food consisting primarily of raw meat, organ meats, bone, and fat reflects what your pet would eat in its natural habitat. Dogs and cats thrive on a diet rich in nutritious, raw meat.
A grain-free, raw food diet is not medicine, it's just common sense. After all, when was the last time you saw your pets cooking their food in the back yard before they ate it? Think about it...when you eat unprocessed & natural food, you feel healthier and happier – you have more energy, you have fewer aches and pains, you sleep better at night, etc. Our pets are no different. They need healthy and natural foods, too. Feed them as nature intended and be prepared for a transformation in your pet's overall health!

Instinct Raw is offered in various forms, including easy-to-serve medallions, patties, and bites! Choose the form and flavor that best suits your pet's size and preferences.
