Natures Variety Logo

These grain-free dry diets are high in meat protein and low in carbohydrates, which is ideally suited to dogs' ancestry and biology as natural carnivores. Since dogs instinctively crave raw meat, they will choose it over grain when given a choice. Nature's Variety Instinct, with its high concentration of animal protein, is consistent with the instinctive canine metabolism.

A rotational diet consisting of more meat and less grain fosters biologically appropriate weight control, and lean feeding leads to longer life. The natural results of higher quality nutrition include better skin and coat, healthier teeth and gums, increased energy, and less backyard clean-up.

  • Grain-free
  • Over 90% of the protein is from real meats
  • Exclusive freeze dried raw Bio-Coating
  • Complete and balanced for all life stages
  • Guaranteed to improve skin and coat!

Ingredient Benefits

The proteins in Nature's Variety Raw Instinct diets are derived from meat - primarily high quality chicken meal and menhaden fish meal. Highly digestible tapioca binds the other high quality ingredients together into a kibble. Nature's Variety uses tapioca because it is grain-free and gluten-free. This assures you that the proteins found in Raw Instinct pet diets are primarily derived from meat.

Pumpkinseeds provide linoleic acid for skin and coat, Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, and are a natural source of fiber. Vegetable seeds, such as pumpkinseeds, are one of the densest sources of nutrition available. Alfalfa has unique nutritional benefits; its root system often penetrates the soil more than 20 feet deep, seeking out minierals in the subsoil not accessible to other plants. Chelated Minerals are added to aid absorption in the digestive tract. ("Chelated" means firmly attached, usually to an amino acid or other organic component.) Montmorillonite clay is an additional source of trace minerals and has been shown to sequester toxins. Fruits and vegetables are also added as natural sources of important vitamins.

These high quality, wholesome ingredients are blended together with care to meet your pet's raw instinct for a grain-free, nutrient dense diet.

Always introduce any new diet over a period of days, mixing with the present diet. Keep fresh water available at all times and offer plenty of exercise.

Feeding amounts in the table below are based on an average activity level
