Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey Meal Formula Dry Cat Food
Great for Cats with IBD
I have two kitties with food intolerance issues that result in IBD. The vet recommended avoiding cat food with chicken and grains, as those are two of the most common culprits. I had tried a few other brands of chicken-free, grain-free dry foods. But either the cats wouldn't eat them, or the food intolerance issues continued. (I suspect that fish is also a trigger for one of them). Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey Formula is truly a limited ingredient food; there's only one protein source and one source of starch. The cats really like the flavor and I've seen no evidence of this food causing any digestive upset.

This product changed the quality of life for my IBD kitty
My 10 year old male Siamese was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) about two years ago. Daily and often more frequent vomiting plagued him, with intermittent diarrhea. After trials of numerous vet-prescribed diets for food allergy as possible cause, I found this limited protein (turkey) and other ingredient diet (Natural Instinct LID turkey) through my own research. It was the first that he would eat and vomiting decreased considerably very quickly. My other kitty eats it too and seems to enjoy it. I have also offered the wet food version and the LID duck, which are both very well tolerated, and actually "looked forward to" by the cats. I have not looked back or to any other brands since!

small, tasty bits
My older cat, with no teeth, feeds frequently. I use this food at night. My cat loves the aroma and taste of this food. The food is pea size, and swallows easily.
My cat also has food allergies, and this is a great cat food made for cats like mine.

Cats loved it.
It was so good that the cats tended to overeat. The turkey is their favorite.

Another great product from Nature's Variety
My boys love the chicken flavor so I tried the turkey wondering if they would like it as much. They go absolutely nuts over it! One more great healthy dry food that I can happily feed my older sensitive cat.

Our two cats eat Instinct dry food on a daily basis, and since it's difficult to get them to eat wet, this is a reasonable compromise to me. The cats don't get tired of it, though I will after a couple months switch to the Chicken Instinct dry and then back again.

My cat eats it
My cat has allergies and the vet recommended this product for at least 12 weeks, as well as eating turkey only. While he still is itchy after 2 months, I can't say if this is helping or not.

Very Happy with product
I have four cats. One is on a limited food diet. I was so happy to find this dry food, but especially that ALL four cats really enjoy it! Makes life easier!
