Lucky

When I got Lucky in January, he had been found 2 months earlier, tangled on a chain in some bushes in Puerto Rico by a tourist who heard some yipping while walking on a path. He was 6 lbs, starving, thirsty, covered with ticks, and plagued by flies. He was almost a goner! She plucked him out, took him to the vet to be cleaned up, and decided to buy him a ticket home. She fostered him, and when I got him he was 9 lbs, still very weak, with no hind-end musculature and very little body fat. For the first couple of days he was with me, he refused to eat the food the foster family had sent with him, so after he hadn't eaten for a day and a half, I tried one of the samples of your frozen raw food I had gotten from Green Dog Pet Supply in Portland, OR. He ate them with gusto! So, I switched him to a raw diet, using Nature's Variety Instinct Organic Raw Frozen Chicken, and after just a couple of months, he grew muscles in his legs and hips! Now he goes on 5-6 mile hikes with me on weekends, his immune system seems to be very good, and his coat went from coarse and dry to shiny and soft. He's healthy and happy!

Sierra

My cat Sierra is 12 years old had chronic diarrhea for about 6 months. We have taken her to the vet a number of times, had blood tests and tried many medications to try to control it. She began to have diarrhea outside the litter box a few times per day and in reading the internet I found that was a symptom of feline intestinal distress; we discussed this with our vet-more medication. After a discussion with a friend who has a dog with pancreatitis who controls that with a raw diet we did more research and decided to try that. We discussed this approach with the vet who said he does not advocate a raw diet but we decided to do it anyway. On the very first day the diarrhea outside the box stopped and never returned. Sierra has been on a raw diet for 6 weeks and in that time her stool is still runny but not liquid and much less frequent and always in the box. This is a miracle to us. We are so thankful for this product.

Bella, Leona & Dante

Finally a kibble that is grain free and small enough for, ahem, little iggys with big personalities. Thanks for providing a great dog food that even the pickiest of pups (I know because I have three) will prefer!

Lewis & Ladd

I have two rescue cats that are now one year old. I adopted them from a local shelter, and they had Feline Herpes and struggled with digestive issues and overall health. I tried several foods to combat this but none seemed to work. I was then told about Instinct. After the first bag, both of my cats had more energy! I hadn't realized how lethargic they had become until then, but they became more active and less lazy. They were more interested in playing, and we spent less time running to the vet with tummy troubles. Lewis also became a healthier weight, and Ladd never had weight troubles because we started him on Instinct.

Little Miss Cupid

We got Little Miss Cupid when she was 4 months old. She had injured her eye and it left her with a tear duct that doesn't work. She has Dry Eye. Anyway, we decided to put her on some good dog food and when we searched we found Nature's Variety. It works well for us because she can have different flavors for each meal so she doesn't get bored. Even though she still has her dry eye at 1 year old I know that Nature's Variety has kept that eye healthy along with her eye drops and her hair is so shiney and silky too! We are very happy!

Riley

My Maltese Riley is a very picky eater and everything makes his tummy hurt. I would literally hand feed him to make sure he ate something. My local dog trainer recommnded Instinct. I brought it home thawed it out and gave it a try, he ate it all up by himself. Then he stood by the refrigerator and wouldn't leave for about an hour, so I gave him another piece and he ate it up. I am so happy he is eating, I hope this continues and he can live without a belly ache!!!

Baxter

I have noticed how Baxter, my oldest, has gotten a much shinier coat. He also has arthritis and he seems move active with less discomfort.
