What is Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diet (Organic Chicken)?

 
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 their 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). More information on High Pressure Pasteurization. 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. For evening feeding, take the medallions out in the morning. The medallions should be served 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.

Tips on serving:

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.

Tips on handling:

Keep frozen until ready to defrost.
Wash hands before handling raw diets to prevent contaminating the food.
For maximum food safety and freshness, defrost your pets daily portion by thawing it in a covered container in the refrigerator. For ideal food safety, product should still be cold to the touch when served.
Keep raw meat and poultry separate from other foods. Use hot, soapy water to wash working surfaces, utensils (including cutting boards, preparation areas, and feeding bowls), hands, and any other items that touch or come into contact with raw meat or poultry.
If your pet does not consume all the food presented within 30 minutes, remove any leftovers and discard.
Use hot, soapy water to wash your hands and your pets bowl after each feeding.
Tip: A 3 lb. bag of Instinct Raw Frozen Diet Organic Chicken contains approximately 48 meat medallions and a 6 lb bag contains approximately 96 meat medallions. Each meat medallion weighs approximately 1 oz.

Cats AND Dogs?

Cats have very specific nutritional needs that dogs do not have. How does Instinct food address the differences?

Answer: 
According to the manufacturer:
Our Raw Frozen Diets are complete and balanced for cats AND dogs, all life stages and all breeds. In the wild, dogs and cats would eat the same prey animals. They have very similar nutritional requirements. Cats do need more protein, amino acids (taurine and arginine), B vitamins (thiamine and vitamin A), and fatty acids (linoleic and arachidonic acid). Our nutritious Raw Frozen Diets are formulated to meet all of these nutritional requirements – giving your carnivorous feline friend everything she needs for fitness, health, and happiness.
