Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Duck Formula Canned Cat Food
Excellent for cats with food allergies! No more vomitting!
My cat used to vomit on a regular basis (at least a few times every week). I tried many different cat foods, including prescription diets of duck, rabbit, venison. These were expensive, and still didn't help. I finally found Nature's Variety instinct in the duck variety and my cat loved it. And the best part is that he hardly ever vomits now (maybe once every month or two!). I also introduced him to the dry version of Instinct. It has turkey and duck in it, and the only grain is tapioca. He tolerates the food wonderfully. Overall, I'm very pleased with the Instinct duck line of cat foods. Natural ingredients, low/no grain, no chicken, gluten, corn, etc. And a reasonable price compared to some of the prescription diets. I highly recommend you give this food a shot if your cat has food allergies or a sensitive stomach.

Kitty loves the duck and rabbit best
My older kitty with IBD loves this food but I've been having problems getting him to eat some of the April Best By dates. He actually likes the rabbit better than the duck but rabbit has been out of stock due to manufacturer having trouble getting raw materials.
Ordered some 3 oz cans of duck but they seem to have too much liquid in them. I will stick to the 5.5oz cans unless desperate.
Chewy.com is great! Customer service is pleasant and attentive. Thank you for being such an excellent company!

My finicky cats love it!
Nature's Variety's Instinct is the only one of the many top-quality, grain-free, gluten-free foods that I've tried that my finicky cats will eat, and they love the Duck Formula. Duck Formula comes in a Low Ingredient Diet version that doesn't have the small amount of turkey that the regular version contains. My kitties seem to prefer a little turkey with their duck. There is a small amount of carrots and peas, which are of no value to our obligate carnivores, and my only criticism is that I wish they'd not include the few whole peas and chunks of carrot in each can. The cats don't like them and will stop eating if they gobble them, so I've become adept at flipping them into the disposal with the lid of the can when I put the food into the bowls and break it up with the lid.

Has good ingredient content.
Thinking Duck would really impress my kitten, I bought a case. Of course what do I know. Appears to favor the Chicken a little more. I have mixed it with chicken to encourage him to eat it. Though I am still impressed with the product, kitty has a different take on it.
Thank u Mr. Chewy for making ordering such a easy and pleasant experience.

Best wet food in the world (esp for cats with food or health issues)!
Despite my five cats' many food and/or other health issues, this food never fails. They love it (along with the rabbit and chicken varieties) no matter how often they eat it. I love it because of the high protein content and lack of frivolous ingredients. One of my five kitties can't eat other wet food without getting seriously ill. (I am not exaggerating. I have tried everything, including cooking her salmon every day until I found this product.)

No salmon oil
My cat has really bad allergies and can only eat wet food. Previous wet foods I have tried have salmon oil in them, which he is allergic to.

My cat had urinary issues and the vet suggested a hills diet. I didn't want to feed a corn based diet and did my research- this diet has been working great for him the past 3 years! He's the happiest he's ever been! And I'm happy he's getting the proper nutrition he deserves.

My kitties are pleased with this product and so I am. It is not as expensive as some of the other brands but is as high or higher quality. My kitties were having loose bowels with a more expensive brand and that stopped with this brand. They are excited when I open the can!
