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 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.
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.

How do I transition my pet to a new food? It is always a good idea to start slowly on a new diet with any pet. Slowly increase the amount of new food being added to the present diet over a period of 3-4 weeks. If any digestive upset occurs, slow the transition and allow your pet's digestive system to return to normal before proceeding. Once your pet is accustomed to Nature's Variety foods, you can rotate between forms and flavors. All Nature's Variety diets are formulated for rotation feeding.

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. http://www.affinity-petcare.com/en/index.htm
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)
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!).
I have a Chinese Shar-Pei with all that extra skin around his mouth and when he tries to eat this kibble it makes a big mess and is a very frustrating experience for him. I think he likes the flavor well enough but he just can't seem to scoop a mouthful and chew it without spreading it all around. He actually walked away out of frustration and that's not typical of him when it comes to food (he usually goes to the bottom of the bowl). This kibble is small enough that it gets lodged in his checks then randomly falls from his mouth as he walks around the house. I've never seen anything like this before in any other brand and I'm convinced it is due to the small size and shape of this kibble.
I am uploading some photos I took by way of comparison. The Nature's Variety is the darker brown smaller kibble on the left. The larger kibble is Nature's Recipe Lamb and Rice and he doesn't have any problem with this larger kibble. I also took a photo of each brand kibble separately and again, the smaller, darker kibble photo is of this Nature's Variety product and the larger, lighter kibble photo is of the Nature's Recipe. I am also uploading some photos of the bag. The bag material is shiny and there is some reflection going on. I think you can still make out all of the information on the bag.Read more ›
