Our German Shepherd, Gretchen hadn't been eating well. We were having to add canned food to her kibble to get her to eat. Some days, that didn't work. Our chiropractic veterinarian suggested a raw diet, which we tried. We no longer have to coax her to eat. We mix the frozen raw bits with the freeze dried coated kibble. Problem solved! She is more energetic, her teeth are cleaner, her coat is beautiful, and we no longer have to beg her to eat! We chose to use the raw bites because of the short amount of time required for thawing compared to other products that require several hours of thawing.

I was hesitant at first to try a raw diet with my boy. I took the plunge and haven't looked back! My boy is happier, healthier AND the biggest bonus to it all - they eat everything in their bowls. No more picking. I say "Supper" and he beats me to the kitchen.

I am so thankful for Nature's Variety and Nature's Instinct. My cat, Sarah, is extremely picky and your food is her absolute favorite. Her longtime favorite are the Raw Boost Minis (seen in picture) and most recent favorite are the Chicken Nuggets! I feel great about feeding Sarah your food and know she wouldn't be as happy or healthy without it. I look forward to buying it for many more years to come!

I have a toy fox terrier who was such a picky eater and the last couple of years have been worse as her teeth bother her. changing her diet to instinct raw was the best choice I ever made she has energy like a puppy and licks her bowl clean every meal and still wants more where as before i could barely get her to finish one meal a day, this food has changed her life and mine as well she is so happy has a ton of energy and plays like she should at 6 years old. Thank you so much for creating such a high quality dog food that my dog loves I would recommend this to anyone.

Earlier this year my Ocicat was diagnosed with diabetes and my vet instructed that I feed Cheops canned food morning and night before giving him his insulin shot. For months I struggled with finding a canned food he would eat on a consistent basis. At the age of 13 he has become a picky eater. I was always concerned that if he didn't eat his canned food I would have to make an adjustment to his insulin. I recently purchased the Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet formula. I honestly didn't think my cat would eat Rabbit or Lamb, but this has been a complete game changer. Not only does Cheops love this food it has also made his coat soft and silky! At first, I thought I was imagining it, but with a diet high in protein and with the right minerals it has helped his epidermal cells. I am more than 100% satisfied and hope to find some of the other flavors locally. A happy cat = a happy pet owner! Thank you Nature's Variety.

Butch struggled with rodent ulcers for 6 months. We did the whole steroid thing but it didn't seem to help. We also knocked out all plastics and anything that was not made of natural materials i.e. cotton or animal fur. We decided to try the limited rabbit dry and canned formula. It about one month the ulcers went away and it's been a few months since we've had him on the limited rabbit formulas with no issues. Not only has this cleared up his rodent ulcers, but he and his brother Bobo LOVE the foods. Thanks for helping us keep happy and healthy kitties.

My Molly was diagnosed with environmental and food allergies. We started on a special vet-prescribed food, but I don't feel good about feeding her chicken feathers and other weird ingredients. The Limited Ingredient Lamb was a life-saver. She loves it!

My Boston Terrier, Harper, had severe allergies as a puppy until I switched her to Instinct Raw Medallions. She broke out in hives and her face swelled up several times, but this stopped immediately with the Instinct diet. She is now an energetic 11 year-old and doing well on this high-quality food.

I have a female lab and a male weimaraner. I feed them both Instinct Raw Boost Lamb and Beef. They love it. Weimaraners are prone to GI issues and it is recommended to feed Weims a grain free diet. Both dogs do well on this product.

My now 5 year old English bulldog has always had some tummy issues since puppyhood and I have always had to be careful with what I gave him. In the last couple of years those food allergies have gotten far worse. He is allergic to almost every meat protein, white potatoes and tons of the fruits and vegetables that are found it almost every dog food. The limited ingredient Duck is the ONLY food I have found that he can have without breaking out in hives or having horrible diarrhea. He absolutely loves it and is thriving on it since I switched him over.
