Serving Instructions
Instinct Raw Frozen Diets are convenient and ready to serve without the need for mixing or measuring.

  1. Keep raw medallions/patties/chubs frozen until ready to defrost.
  2. 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 and chubs may require 8 to 10 hours.)
  3. Serve thawed medallions/patties/chubs in your pet's stainless steel dish.  Food should still be cold to the touch when served.

Serving Tip: Instinct Raw can be served alone or mixed with any Nature's Variety Kibble.
