Rated 5 out of 5 by CI1000 Excellent quality and great for cats with IBD or allergies
My sweet girl cat Marcela loves all of the Nature's Variety flavors that I have given her. She is 10 years old, very finicky and I have to be very careful with what I feed her. She was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease about a year and a half ago and the best plan I've found for her is a high protein and grain free diet.
Since I’ve been feeding her Nature’s Variety canned cat foods I have been able to get the problem under control. No more vomiting or diarrhea. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to get their cat back on a healthy track or simply maintain good health.

My 12 year old Siamese has been battling IBD. We tried the Instinct Venison Canned food as she had 'burned out' on the prescription venison diet she was eating. In searching for another option, I ran across Nature's Variety. She likes it!!!! AND it is working well for her. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AutumnColors I would recommend anything from this company!
We love Nature's Variety here! We've had to adjust our choice of products from their offerings to what our one cat with allergies and digestive issues can eat without problems. We stick with their L.I.D. Instinct kibble, but she can handle the 95% regular Instinct canned foods. She seems to do better with the flavors that don't contain any eggs (venison, duck, rabbit). I recommend this wholeheartedly!!

My 10 year old cat has multiple food allergies, so it is difficult to find food that she can eat and also likes. This venison is one of her favorite flavors, and I like the fact that it has no carrageenan which so many companies put into pet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahWI6884 Quality product
I have tried the rabbit, beef, venison, chicken, salmon, and duck. I recommend the smellier of the wet food: the salmon, chicken, and duck. Although all of the products are excellent, my cat seems to prefer the ones that have a stronger smell. The beef, rabbit, and venison have very little smell at all—something I think attests to the cleanness and quality of the meat—but my cat does not seem to enjoy it as much. As far as the beef, rabbit, and venison are concerned, the vet recommended warming the food in the microwave for 30 seconds to give the food a stronger smell. I do not like microwaves, so leaving the food out at room temperature seems to work for the beef, rabbit, and venison, although, once again, it is not a favorite. It is, however, worth a try like all Nature's Variety wet food products. It is the very best wet food I have encountered in my years as a pet owner, i.e. 10+ years. It is worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by remi like the variety of foods but the venison is dry.
My fussy two kitties like the Instinct food. It is expensive so they only get it once a week or less to rotate their diet. I like the idea of giving them a variety in their diet besides just chicken, fish, & turkey. The Venison formula must not have a lot of liver in it as my cats will not eat liver. The texture is quite dry and I must add a couple of teaspoons of hot water and mix it well to get the kitties to eat it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tooty Good food for your cat.
I have 2 allergic cats and the vet recommended venison, rabbit, or duck foods. My cats loved Instinct and devoured it at every meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nephthys All 3 cats approve
I really like Nature's Variety and I love that there is no carageenan. All 3 cats like this venison flavor. It is a bit dense, so I mash it a little with some warm water. I rarely have to throw any away. I'm going to try some of the other flavors soon and I hope they like more than just this flavor. :) No issues with tummy upset or any litterbox troubles. I noticed this flavor and a few others don't have egg in it, but some of the flavors like chicken do, so that's worth noting if any of your cats have allergies.
