Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two paws up!! I've been incorporating Instinct's Raw Signature lamb patties for a couple of month's into my seven month old Boerboel's diet. And what a improvement I have seen in his overall being, especially his GI health. Happy had been struggling with diarrhea, soft stool, vomiting and excessive gas. Now, Happy is noticeably healthier- and HAPPIER! He no longer is having GI issues and his coat is extra soft and shiny! We love Instinct!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gone In Seconds I am an Instinct employee, but this is my honest feedback. My dog will gobble this food up in seconds and look at me for more. She was 10 when I started feeding her Instinct Signature and her skin improved, less itchy, and she got back some of her puppy energy. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is our go to dog food when we can't get the local raw diet. Been feeding it often for a few years. We add raw, green tripe to it. Our dogs (catahoula/border collie) are eleven and look and act like they are four years younger. There is nothing like a raw diet (and, in our experience, always add tripe).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMERICAN Eskimo loves them I have a American Eskimo she is 11. She has trouble with her doggie life since she was 3 months old. I have tried every GOOD DOG FOOD OUT THERE. The last one was Dr. Marty (very expensive), then she got a bad skin disorder so I saw this and decided to change her food, and the difference in her bowel movements, are unbelievable. Please keep the dog and cat food here in America. We don’t need anymore sick animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the BEST brands you can feed your dog! This food helped my sick dog, who didn't eat for a month, feel SO much better! I don't understand the negative reviews other than all dogs are different and perhaps the transition to a high-quality food caused an upset stomach for some. There is just too much junk in regular dry kibble dog foods that I never knew. I always assumed paying high dollar for premium kibble was insuring a healthy meal for my dogs and it is quite the opposite. We need to do better for our animals! We love Instinct!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Family Dog is Healthy This has been life changing for Cooper! Lamb is his favorite! In 3 months he went from 110lbs and not fit, to an 84lbs to muscular! Thank you for making it easy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from night mare gave my dog massive sickness .fed my dog in the morning. woke up in the middle of the night and found out that vomit everywhere and diarrhea. my dog had tried other raw instinct food , kibbles and small bites, we had no problem with them but this one did not work out with him. I hope it's not the product it might be my puppy or the batch that I bought...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using it since Day one I cannot see how people have any problems with this food unless you feed the dog too much or you may be cooking it thinking you need to cook it. All three of my dogs have been on it since I brought them home from their breeders. The breeders would send me food along with the puppy, I just threw it out and started them on Lamb Frozen patties. They used to have a calculator on this web page, use it, it works.

Questions

Instinct Raw Lamb - Frozen

We have checked with our Vet for guidelines and were informed we can feed foods that have a Phosphorous level below 2%. Also, the food should have a Ca/P Ratio of 2:1 based on DM. We are curious about the Instinct Raw Lamb ratio. We have tried other flavors of Instinct and our cat enjoys them.
Asked by: DonHo
Thank you for your question. The Phosphorus is 0.320% of the ingredients.

What is the Phosphorous Calcium Ratio?

I see the nutritional breakdown, but we have a chronic renal disease kitty and need the ratio based on Dry Matter. It's extremely important before choosing a product line.
Asked by: DonHo
Hi there, The raw instinct foods are not formulated for cats (or dogs) with special conditions and you should consult your vet to determine what foods would be appropriate for your Furry Friend.

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

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).

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Complete and balanced for all life stages and all breeds.
  • Recommended by veterinarians for pets with allergies.
  • Convenient and ready to serve.
  • Grain free and gluten free.
  • Helps normalize underweight or overweight pets.
  • Decreases shedding, hot spots, and other skin issues.
  • Smaller stools, less waste cleanup.
  • Higher energy levels (No fillers or preservatives to cause lethargy).
  • 1 year shelf life (freezer).
  • Pets love it!
  • Comes as frozen medallions or patties

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.

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.

Instinct Raw Frozen Diet Lamb Directions:

  • Keep raw medallions or patties 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, while patties may require 8-10 hours.)
  • Serve thawed medallions or patties 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.
