What is Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diet (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 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).

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 or patties the night before and for evening feeding, take the medallions or patties 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, while patties may require 8-10 hours. 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.
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.
