Red, 8 yr. old DSH
Like many people, we believed that the lethargic, scraggly, 14 year old cat someone gave us was simply the result of his advanced age. However, we had just switched our 8 yr old cat to Instinct (severe food sensitivities), and naturally, the 14 yr old cat began eating the same. Within 2 WEEKS - we saw a dramatic change in both cats. The vomiting stopped in the 8 yr old, and the 14 yr old began growing in healthy fur; he had TONS of kitten like energy, and was gaining weight. We are now 16 weeks into the Instinct feeding, and Fred (14 yr old) is unrecognizable. Gone is the feeble, arthritic, patchy & dull fur; in its place is a cat that is literally enjoying a new life as a healthy, energetic and gorgeous "young" cat. And Red (the 8 yr old) has also made a complete turn around. Not only has the vomiting stopped, but his energy level is back to that of a kitten as well! I will always feed Instinct to my cats from now on!

Elder Cat with suspected food allergies
We have a household of 4 cats! My oldest being almost 14 yrs old, even though we already had them on a grain free diet and a different brand my elder cat was throwing up her food and then became some what anorexic. It alarmed us as she was loosing weight and she wasn't an overweight cat! Several trips to the Vet really didn't produce any good results, blood work looked "great" for her age. Finally the Vet suggested that we try her on a special diet -- she was thinking that over time my poor Lacy was allergic to Chicken and fish. Well anyone who has cats and tries to change their food KNOWS how challenging that is!! We scoured looking for alternatives and found this product, which is Duck, Turkey, and they have a rabbit formula. Since I have 4 cats, I can't just change one...I have to change them all! Needless to stay ...I first introduced the food to my cats and they eagerly ate up the pieces I offered them. I started mixing it in with their old food (which was a blue buffalo GF mix)...and we have completely converted over to Nature's valley. My elder cat is doing SO much better since making the switch, we have not found any random puked up food piles around the house. We will blend a variety of the mixes to offer up diversity, in addition to a healthy wet food they all eat. I definitely believe in a rotation diet so that your pets system doesn't get too used to one protein source. I will definitely say that they all are doing well on the product, shiney coats, healthy and active..and my edler cat seems more energetic and still very playful. I can tell she's starting to feel better!
THANK YOU for making a good quality product, I would love to see more varieties? Lamb perhaps in the hard food? I plan on trying the freeze dried mix to see if they will take to the product.

My healthy kitties!
We have two cats that are brothers. I was shopping for cat food one afternoon when one of your sales reps explained what's good about Instinct and suggested I give it a try. I bought a small bag and when I gave it to one of the cats, he fuzzed up all over because he was so excited by the taste of it. That wasn't the best part. His brother has had a severe sneezing problem for years that the vet said is a viral infection and there was not much we could do. I noticed after I gave them Instinct for about a week that the sneezing subsided. I ran out and had to go back to what I still had left in the cabinet, which was a good brand. The sneezing came back. I got another bag of Instinct and the sneezing again began to subside. We are now at the bottom of a 12.1 pound bag and I don't think I have heard my cat sneeze in days. It is sooooo nice to finally be able to relax when he comes to cuddle, knowing that we aren't going to be plastered with, well, ya know. There is also a noticeable difference in their coats. Thank you for creating such a great food! It is well worth the price.

What was the specific name of the Natures Variety Instinct food you got for your kitties. I have three kitties and one has severe allergies, would like to buy some of the same you tried for your dear kitties.
Sincerely,
Kathryn

Saved our cat
Our poor kitty was suffering from severe stomach issues, vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss. Vet put him on meds and their version of special diet, to no effect. Finally the vet said he might have IBD and be having an allergic reaction to meats and grains used in common cat foods (we couldn't afford the surgery to find out for sure if it was IBD). Vet said to try feeding diet of rabbit, venison, salmon or kangaroo. I was desperate trying versions foods grain free and with no chicken or other meats. At Petco I found the Frozen Raw Diet Duck Formula and he absolutely LOVED it. Within a month we were seeing an amazing transition. NO more vomiting or diarrhea; within 2 months we could see he was gaining weight. We then tried kibble and wet and he loves them too. Today he is a very happy AND healthy cat. I can't believe we almost lost him, he was basically starving to death. Thank goodness for Nature's Instinct!! Now we feed nothing BUT Nature's Instinct.

We've had Puma, our 12 yr. old Siamese Himalayan since before he was weaned. He was a rescue. He began suffering from diarreah, vomiting & weight loss a long gone ago. Several vets have said food allergies and now our vet says IBD or other stomach/bowel issues and has had him on special diet wet & dry food, tummy coated med, antibiotics & steroids. We just now discovered this Raw food by Instict. Just began. On day 2. Praying for awesome results! We've tried everything else. Don't want to lose our baby. Thank you for your comments!!!❤

First and Only Food
Our Shih Tzu was given Natue's Variety since she was weaned from her mother. She absolutely loves the food and will not eat anything else. Our little princess is healthy, happy and full of energy. We keep her in long coat and her coat is shiny and silky. Natue's Variety Raw was her first food, and it is the only one she eats.
