What is Instinct Raw Frozen Diet Beef?

Instinct is a delicious line of raw food diets consisting of 95% meat, organ meat, and bones. The additional 5% includes vegetables, fruits, and other whole foods. This combination of quality meat and natural foods helps to provide nutrition similar to what your pet would eat in a natural habitat. Instinct contains no grain or gluten, which makes this food a perfect choice for pets with food allergies. Instinct's Raw Diet formulas are also the first and only Raw Diet to be scientifically substantiated as complete and balanced by AAFCO's (Association Of American Feed Control Officials) Nutritional Protocol Feeding Trials. All ingredients in Instinct Raw Frozen Diet are sourced in the U.S.A. The Raw Food is made under the strictest quality and food safety standards, including High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP).

Note: Instinct requires FedEx Priority Overnight ($19.99 on most orders).

How it Works:

Feeding your pet Instinct Raw Diet replaces your pet's everyday kibble or canned food. The food is kept in the freezer and you only remove the portion of food you plan on feeding your pet. For morning feeding, take out the medallions the night before and for evening feeding, take the medallions out in the morning. 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. Serve cold when it is feeding time. There's no need to worry about feeding your pet a raw diet because Nature's Variety uses a process known as High Pressure Pasteurization (HPP) for safety. HPP kills pathogenic bacteria through high-pressure, water-based technology. This process applies uniform amounts of pressure eliminating food pathogens without losing vital nutrients or altering the food's freshness. HPP is a USDA-approved, 100% natural process, and is allowed for use on organic and natural products.

Cautions:

Wash hands before and after handling raw diets to prevent contaminating the food. Instinct Raw Frozen Diet is not recommended for dogs with immune system problems or pancreatitis.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Keep raw medallions frozen until ready to defrost. For morning meals, defrost the night before. For evening meals, defrost in the morning.
  • 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.)
  • Serve thawed medallions in your pet's stainless steel dish. Food should still be cold to the touch when served.
Tip:

Wash hands before and after handling raw diets to prevent contaminating the food.

Instinct Raw Frozen Diet Beef is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I like feeding this to my dog at least once a week to offer her variety and make sure that she does not get bored of her food and she loves it! I have never seen her eat any other food faster than when I feed her Instinct. It is great!

Q&A

I'm confused. You clearly state in the "how to use" section "do not use" for cats. Yet when 2 people have asked questions regarding their cat, you answered them without once mentioning this product is not for cats!! Even told one how much to feed!

Instinct Raw Frozen Diet Beef is formulated for dogs only.

diabetes

My. Dog harays diabetes and her sugar level is high does. This food help control it
Asked by: ray
I've had two diabetic animals, one cat and one dog and I'm also a long term type 2 diabetic who is lifestyle only controlled. I had both of my diabetic pets at the same time and they had very high glucose levels when they were first diagnosed. I gave each one 3 insulin shots a day plus I also had to feed them a food made for diabetic animals. Hills makes a prescription diabetic diet food that is available from your vet. However, you can make an effective diabetic pet food yourself for much less cost than the prescription diet. My vet gave me a recipe to use and I also had one from Dr. Pitcairn's book on natural health care for dogs and cats which my vet also approved. For convenience, I'd make up big batches and freeze it so I'd have enough for a week or two for both the cat and dog. I never did use the prescription diet for either one of my diabetic pets and my dog lived to be over 15 years old and my cat lived to 17. You have to really watch the carbs and keep check on glucose levels. First, I'd ask the vet for their advice before I decided which way to go. Considering that diabetes is very individual, you may have more than one option available to choose from and your vet can help you decide which one will work best for you and your dog. Best wishes for your success!

Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diet (Beef)

I see that there is an ingredient of "Montmorillonite Clay." Why is there clay in this food? Also, do you carry any Raw that doesn't have any poultry products in it? My cat cannot have anything from birds.
Asked by: elizoria
Montmorillonite clay is a common feed additive, used as an anti-caking agent and to absorb aflatoxins. Unfortunately, of all of our raw foods do contain poultry products.
