Dogs are natural carnivores, so it's their instinct to eat more meat, poultry, and fish protein and less grain. Nature's Variety Instinct Dog Food provides dogs with a kibble made of 72% animal ingredients (such as chicken meal, fish meal, chicken fat, and freeze dried turkey) and nutritious oils and the food is guaranteed to contain 42% protein overall. The protein to fat to fiber ratio is meant to help your dog reach and maintain an ideal body weight, which can protect him or her from a number of ailments and diseases. Nature's Variety Instinct is suitable for dogs at all life stages. It's grain- and gluten-free, which makes it an excellent choice for dogs who are intolerant or sensitive to gluten or grains. And because of its high protein content, it is great for dogs who have high energy requirements. Many dog owners choose Instinct's Grain-Free Nutrition like their chicken formula for dogs with food allergies and sensitivities because its grain- and gluten-free formulation can provide relief from many food allergy symptoms.
Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Recipe provides your dog with a well-balanced, high-protein, grain-free meal that is not only delicious, but also provides essential vitamins and antioxidants to help your dog feel healthy and energized. Added Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids also help maintain healthy skin and coat.
