Serving Instructions

Instinct Raw Frozen Diets are convenient and ready to serve without the need for mixing or measuring.

  1. Keep raw medallions/patties/chubs frozen until ready to defrost.
  2. Defrost your pet's daily portion by thawing it in a covered container in the refrigerator. (Medallions take about 4-6 hours to defrost in the refrigerator, while patties and chubs may require 8 to 10 hours.)
  3. Serve thawed medallions/patties/chubs in your pet's stainless steel dish. Food should still be cold to the touch when served.

There is $14.95 shipping surcharge on all frozen raw orders. Please read the following carefully:

  • Shipping Fees  - Frozen raw orders do not qualify for Free & Flat Rate Shipping. We currently ship all frozen raw via FedEx Ground or FedEx 2 Day Air based on estimated time to your your shipping address. To avoid spoilage, shipments that would take more than 3 days to arrive by ground must be upgraded to FedEx 2 Day Air.

  • Tuesday Shipping - All frozen raw orders ship on Tuesdays. Due to stocking requirements, orders placed by midnight Sunday will ship that Tuesday. Orders placed on Monday or later will ship the following Tuesday.

  • Special Packaging - All raw food and bones are shipped frozen in special styrofoam-lined boxes with dry ice. The frozen raw surcharge is to cover the cost of the dry ice and special packaging.

  • Delivery Time – Time frames vary by state but in most cases your delivery will be on Thursday or Friday. If you will not be available to receive your order and place it in the freezer within 24 hours of delivery, consider placing your order another time.  

  • Holiday Shipping Restraints - Due to the FedEx holiday schedule we are unable to ship frozen raw on the holiday weeks of July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.

  • Delivery Instructions - Please ship to an address where someone will be available to accept the order. If this is not possible, please leave a note for the delivery person on the scheduled day of delivery with instructions on where to leave it (that is not in the hot sun). We cannot offer refunds or reships on thawed food that is not signed for by a person at the time of delivery.

  • Returns - Because of the unique shipping and handling needs of frozen raw products, we are unable to accept returns on these products. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Care Team at service@onlynaturalpet.com or 888-937-6677.

  • SEPARATE RAW FOOD ORDERS - If you are ordering both frozen raw food or bones and other, non-frozen items, you will need to place two separate orders, one with your frozen raw items and one with your non-frozen items.

Dogs love it!

Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Frozen Raw Food:

I have three Border Collies, one of whom is a very picky eater, and they all gobble up their raw patties and polish their bowls. My youngest dog came to us having issues with itching, dry fur and occasional infected hot spots. Those problems are clearing up now, her fur is getting softer and shinier and I am so happy to see her feeling so much better without the misery of constant itching and scratching and needing meds to clear up infections. This food has everything they need and none of the junk or fillers they don't so I feel it's worth the price. You get what you pay for. Cheap food = cheap ingredients.

Amazing product!!

Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Frozen Raw Food:

This food has been a life saver for my dog. She suffered with skin problems for years that had in turn turned into secondary infections which at one point required a hospital stay. From all the antibiotics she developed a systemic yeast infection which left her in complete misery. She had constant ear infections, pustules on her belly, inflamed redness in between her toes, and was forever biting and scratching herself to the point where she would bleed. I felt like I was constantly at the vet hoping to find a cure to her misery. After tons of research I decided give this food a try. I read that she may get worse before she gets better because her body will go through a detoxification process. This is exactly what happened. After the first couple weeks she developed diarrhea and I noticed a yucky odor coming from her that she never had before. Once all the bad stuff got out of her system the diarrhea stopped,the odor went away, skin cleared up completely,and no more ear infections!! Another bonus is she lost weight which in turn has given her much more energy. I know this food is a little pricey but compared to what the trips to the vet and all the medications were costing me I will gladly pay the price. Thank you for this great product, you saved my doggies life and it brings me much joy knowing that she's no longer miserable anymore.

Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Frozen Raw Food:

My 17 year old chihuahua is the pickiest eater. She did not like Honest Kitchen, did not like Blue Buffalo, and had to be forced to eat because she didn't like any foods I got. She will not eat kibble at all. I got this and she LOVES it! She eats so fast and is feeling much better. She loves her food now and looks forward to it. Since she is small the cost is not too bad.

      Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Frozen Raw Food:

      My dog Lola is a 5 year old Jack Russel/Rat Terrier mix. She is 14 lbs, healthy, and very active.

      Let me first say that I'm not a person who goes online to write reviews about anything, but for this I had to! Last year my dog started having terrible itching problems. Red belly, licking feet, scratching behind the ear etc. It was not fleas. I was convinced it was a food allergy. I did quite a bit of research and we went through a lot of trial and error before she started doing well on Blue Buffalo Basics turkey recipe. She liked it but it didn't have the protien content I wanted. Then I found NV instinct salmon formula. We transitioned over to that and she remained itch free. For the last 2 years I've been switching between Instinct salmon and Instinct lamb. These foods are great.

      I decided what the heck, I've read a lot of good stuff about the NV frozen raw, lets try it... WOW!!! It wasn't even a week before her coat just turned silky smooth! She's been on it about a week and a half now and no itching, no pink belly so we're going to stay on it. Gave her the weekly bath Sunday and there was about 1/3 as much fur caught in the drain afterwards as there has been every week for the past few months. Shedding much less already! She LOVES the food... gobbles her 3 medallions up in seconds every morning and night. She is more energetic and is definitely noticeably happier. I am SOLD! Sure its a little pricey but its not like the food she's been on was cheap, just a few dollars more per week. I could see where the price may seem outrageous for large dog owners. For feeding, I just throw her thawed medallions on a cheap paper plate, a few seconds later when she's done I just throw the plate away, no mess!

        Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Frozen Raw Food:

        Other pre-formed raw foods (patties) were messy and had to be divided up into appropriate sized meals for my small dog. She was also picky about eating large chunks of raw meat and/or would drag it around the kitchen, creating unsanitary conditions. This food looks like kibble and is stored in the freezer until ready to use. My dog ADORES this food! After a month, she is leaner, her coat is glossier and her poo barely smells. She also poops way less than she did on kibble (Acana) and never has gas or smelly-gland issues anymore.

            Cats and dogs like it. Dogs gobble it up, but a bit too expensive for two big dogs, but am feeding my three cats and only after one week I see that their coats are really silky, less pooh and less smelly poo. Plus one cat was getting fat, and now she is looking near normal.

                  I bought the product since it said for both cats and dogs. I wanted something that was a better quality food than the main stream canned food. To get them used to it I mixed in a little of their canned food and they ate that or just poured a little of the gravy from the canned food...by itself....not tasty enough I guess.
