One brand, three commitments
The brand ÉQUILIBRE & INSTINCT has made three strong commitments: its products are part of a triple dietary, ethical and ecological approach.
The commitment to diet is part of the brand’s DNA, which since its inception has been committed to offering better pâtés and better kibble for cats and dogs. All feeds are of high quality and developed in collaboration with veterinarians and animal nutrition specialists.
Consistent with the nutritional needs of dogs and cats, foods, whether kibbles, pâtés, slivers or slices, contain a lot of animal protein.
The amount of lipids and carbohydrates is appropriately dosed to avoid any imbalance. The premium foods made by the brand are therefore a real guarantee of health for dogs and cats, full of vitality, easily digest their food and sport a shiny clothing.

A variety of healthy recipes for cats and dogs
The brand ÉQUILIBRE & INSTINCT offers two distinct offerings: a variety of wet foods, including pâtés, slivers and slices, and a variety of dry foods including croquettes and sweets.
This diversity allows dog and cat owners to choose bi-nutrition. This method of feeding, which consists of half kibble and half wet food, combines the advantages of different products.
Thus, kibbles are true allies for the oral health of dogs and cats. Their texture and shape offer an action against tartar thanks to a “toothbrush” effect not found in wet food.
On the other hand, pâtés, tapered or minced have the advantage of having content to 80% humidity, in addition to all the nutrients the body needs in dogs and cats. These wet foods are an ideal hydration supplement, especially for cats who are natural light drinkers.
Bi-nutrition makes it possible to get the best out of each type of food, by offering a varied and balanced diet to dogs and cats. EQUILIBRE & INSTINCT products are a guarantee of quality food, respectful of the environment and the nutritional needs of pets.
