Why do we stock Natural Instinct?
Natural Instinct never compromise on quality or price. All Natural Instinct recipes are made using 100% British meats and poultry and ethically sourced fish. The complete recipes have the freshest fruit and vegetables. They do not use any artificial additives, colours, preservatives, fillers or grains.
The range of recipes offer something for all dogs; from those needing to gain weight to leaner options for those who need to shed a few pounds! Here's a little more about each of the ingredients we use:
Chicken The chicken used at Natural Instinct is ethically sourced from a British farm. They don’t believe in battery farming and don’t believe in feeding our pets with food we wouldn’t consider good enough quality to eat ourselves.
The lamb used at Natural Instinct is ethically sourced from a British farm. Natural Instinct lamb recipes are naturally higher in fat and therefore an excellent source of energy for dogs that need to gain weight or use up lots of energy in work.
Natural Instinct source beef from a local supplier – they’ve found it’s a staple favourite of many dogs, plus it’s an excellent source of protein.
The only non-human grade meat – green tripe is a natural source of digestive enzymes helping to purify and cleanse the blood and remove toxins, parasites and fungus. Green tripe also improves metabolism, hormone function and boosts the immune system. It is also a fantastic source of natural probiotics.
A much drier meat than chicken, turkey is ideal for dogs that may be allergic to other sources of protein. It is also relatively low in fat, so great for doggies on a diet.
Sourced from one of the finest game suppliers in the UK, duck is relatively high in fat, so can be used to help with weight gain and is ideal for working dogs with higher energy levels.
Natural Instinct salmon is responsibly sourced from Scottish salmon farms and is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D. Salmon is very good for the immune system as well as joint health.
Fruit & Vegetables
Fibre, omega 3 essential fatty acids, enzymes, antioxidants, phytochemicals, soluble carbohydrates for energy - all the added ‘good stuff’ that keeps them healthy and full of life.
