If you’ve been watching pet food ads, you’ve heard a lot of stuff. You’ve been serenaded by a singing chorus of cats whose only desire is one certain brand of cat food. Or maybe you’ve been cajoled into buying one particular dog food because serving them this food is the perfect way “to love them back.”
Somehow a logical person has to stop and think. Are we really offering the nutrition that nature intended when we give a pet factory-produced brown and/or pink bits in a can or bag?
A Raw Diet: an Ancient, Natural Idea. Dogs and cats are instinctively meat eaters. Think of the “dead bird” offering that your cat so proudly left on your front porch or kitchen rug. Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets are scientifically formulated with 95% meat, organs and raw ground bone, 5% fruits and vegetables and 0% grain. This diet is very similar to what your pet’s ancestors ate and what your pet would eat if she returned to her natural habitat.
New and Improved vs. Tried and True. While many commercial pet food products may boast “New and Improved,” a tried and true raw diet can markedly improve your pet’s overall health and immune system. Benefits of optimal nutrition include a lush, glossy coat, healthy skin, lean muscle tone, a robust immune system, strong bones and teeth, healthy heart, and increased energy and vitality.

Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets are the first and only raw diets to be scientifically substantiated as complete and balanced for all canine life stages through AAFCO Protocol Feeding Trials.

From Freezer to Refrigerator to Bowl. The most common question we get about Instinct’s RAW is – how do you store it? We store it in a freezer, and when you purchase it, you take it home and do the same. The food comes two ways – in little ‘medalions’ that are about the same size as a chicken nugget, and in ‘chubs’ – about the same size as a hamburger pattie. They’re frozen separately, so it’s easy to take out just what your pet will eat. One day before serving, you put a portion in the refrigerator to thaw. Once it is thawed, you can feed it to your pet. It’s neat. It’s not messy. So no, you don’t end up with raw meat all over your hands.
