Product Description

Flavor Name: Lamb | Size: 4.4 lb

Instinct Limited Ingredient Diets are made with minimal ingredients to provide optimal nourishment. Each diet is made with one animal protein and one starch (tapioca), canola and coconut oils for skin and coat health, essential vitamins and minerals and just a handful of other whole food ingredients. Each ingredient is carefully chosen for its nutritional value and digestibility. LID diets are free of commonly used pet food ingredients including chicken, beef, fish, eggs, dairy, grain and gluten.

From the Manufacturer

Instinct Limited Ingredient Diets for Dogs

Optimal nutrition through the fewest, most essential ingredients.

It’s simple. Instinct Limited Ingredient Diets are each made with one animal protein source and pure, simple ingredients that have been carefully chosen for their nutritional value and high digestibility.

Sometimes what’s not included in a dog food is as important as what is. That’s why our simple formulas do not contain these commonly used pet food ingredients: grain, gluten, potato, dairy, eggs, chicken, beef, and fish.

By using only the fewest, most essential ingredients, it’s easier for you to manage what your dog eats - or doesn’t eat - every day.

Instinct Ultimate Protein

Instinct Ultimate Protein is the only high protein, grain-free kibble on the market made without any animal meal. This innovative and proprietary formula achieves 95% of protein from REAL chicken and contains absolutely NO rendered meats, chicken meal or by-product meals.

Instinct Originals

Instinct is formulated like your dog’s instinctive diet – high protein, grain-free, and gluten-free. Each formula is thoughtfully balanced with the wholesome foods your dog would eat in nature including real meat or poultry, healthy vegetables and fruits, and no grain or gluten.

Instinct Raw Boost

Instinct Raw Boost brings you grain-free kibble plus freeze dried raw pieces together in the same bag – the perfect combination of convenience and nutrition to give your dog vibrant health. It’s never been easier to nourish your dog with the pure and wholesome nutrition of raw.

Instinct Healthy Weight

Instinct Healthy Weight brings you grain-free kibble with less fat and fewer calories. Plus it has added Raw Boost – pure, delicious, and fully satisfying freeze dried raw pieces.

What are the components of superior pet nutrition?

We believe superior nutrition for dogs starts with healthy, natural ingredients. This means high quality animal proteins like meat, poultry, and fish should make up the majority of your dog's diet. Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are also beneficial, providing many vital nutrients for your dog's health and well-being.

Why Grain-Free?

A dog's natural diet is high in meat, poultry, and fish protein and low in carbohydrates. Instinctive nutrition helps dogs thrive, nourishing muscles and building strong bones.

Flavor Name: lambSize Name: 25.3 lb
I used to love this dog food. My 3 year old black golden has severe allergies but I still wanted to feed her something high in protein with good ingredients. She's my best friend. This food fit the bill. One protein. Few fillers (easily digestible ones like tapioca and peas). Really, I did my homework, and I loved this food. I had Penny Lane on the lamb meal formula(now lamb and pea formula), and it was the only food I had found that worked well for her.

In April, the company changed the formula to produce it cheaper. And they raised the price. They cut the main source of protein (lamb meal has 300 times the protein then actual lamb does as an ingredient in dog food because of the moisture content) with pea protein. So its protein is now largely plant based and the protein content is 22%, down from 29%. IU already had her on meds for her summer time allergies this week so the food change on top of that did not do her well. I had to drive for three hours to get the only bag of the old formula I could find.

A few days ago natures variety announced that it has sold a large amount of stock to Agrolimen. A European company that owns many affinity pet food companies (think: euro friskies) not to mention fast food, ect.

In other words: They sold out. After much more research, I am going to try switching to Zignature.Zignature Lamb Dry Dog Food, 27-Pound

On the other hand, Amazon was great with my screwed up subscribe and save shipment. I don't think nature's variety bothered to tell Amazon to change the product description. (thank you amazon)

Flavor Name: lambSize Name: 25.3 lb
My dog used to love this food, and he needs limited ingredient dog food because he's allergic to almost everything found in most other dog foods. Unfortunately, when they changed the formula for this food they changed it in a way that has hurt my dog. He absolutely THRIVED on the old formula: he went from a dog whose skin was a problem; was always itching; whose hair and coat was thinner than it should be (he's a Lhasa Apso); and whose allergies had made his life miserable to a dog whose skin was normal and comfortable.and who stopped scratching altogether, as well as having a beautiful coat which I allowed to grow long so he could show everyone what a really handsome dog he is. The food worked wonders for him and I was so happy, as was he. HOWEVER......

The company changed the formula, and the last bag I bought left him hungry every single time I fed him (which never happened before). All he wants to do is eat. I thought something was wrong with him at first, until I realized that the formula has been changed. He even eats paper now!!!!!!! I've had to feed him more in an attempt to keep him from grazing on whatever contraband he can dig up around the house (old bills, plastic, you name it) and now he is FAT for the first time in his life, and this has happened in a period of about 3 months since I buy the larger bag to keep for about a 3 month time period! I will NEVER buy this again, and it makes me angry because I've highly recommended it to others that I know who were looking for a high quality food for their pets, but I love this little dog more than any little dog I've had since the dog I grew up with. He's special to me, and he's miserable this way. His allergies no longer bother him, but he's always hungry now, and it's upsetting seeing him fat (which I never thought would happen to him!).

Flavor Name: turkeySize Name: 25.3 lb Verified Purchase
I think this dog food is the best on the market. I have three large dogs and have tried different grain free foods and Instinct is the one I trust the most. It's very important to me that its made in the USA. The dogs love it. Their weight stays level, no bad gas or runny stools. Whenever I open a new bag, I sprinkle a handful on the floor and they gobble it up like a treat. Good stuff!

Flavor Name: turkeySize Name: 25.3 lb
Over the years, I've had several dogs with food sensitivities/allergies. The first, my beloved Jasper, wasn't diagnosed until he was a senior. It still makes me sad to think of how long he suffered with chronic itching, scratching, and ear infections due to my ignorance. He lived to a ripe old age, but I wish I'd known about pet allergies and limited ingredient foods much sooner; he'd have lived a much healthier, happier life.
At least the dogs I have now will benefit from what I've learned - and hopefully yours will, too.
First and foremost, it's important to feed our dogs quality food (LID or otherwise) and Nature's Variety makes some of the very best pet foods on the market. Nature's Variety products are made in the USA, not just distributed here by an American based company. This is really important because China doesn't have the quality control the United States does when it comes to manufacturing in general, and pet food/pet products in particular. Of course, this also means we're likely to pay more for Nature's Variety, but I believe it's worth every penny of those extra dollars to have healthier, happier pets. Plus, we're likely to even out financially in the long run because we will save on vet bills and pet medications.
I buy/feed Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Dry Food (Turkey formula) - and my dogs LOVE it!
Honestly, I've fed them several LID foods over the years, but once I learned the other foods were made in China and shipped back here, I settled on Nature's Variety, which is made in Lincoln, Nebraska.
If you're looking for a new pet food for your dog, I highly recommend you check out Dog Food Advisor - [...] - it rates most (if not all) the pet foods on the market, and tells you what's right and wrong with them.
One last note: I love Amazon, but it's usually not the least expensive seller of this food.
