Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Duck Formula Canned Cat Food
Excellent nutrition with no vomiting!
I have been feeding Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Duck canned cat food to my two Tonkinese for almost a year now with excellent results. It all but stopped any IBD vomiting while giving excellent nutrition and blood work check ups, with improved hydration. I personally warm the can at feeding time in warm water and add a teaspoon of bottled water while feeding in smaller spaced out portions to sooth a sensitive tummy with excellent results.

I am a foster with a rescue group in New York City and I currently have 17 kittens and cats in my care. Recently, they were having bowel issues and the consensus was to try a food with only one protein and no additional ingredients. I chose this formula and was very pleased with the results, not to mention how much the kids loved it! Unfortunately, it is a little pricey and the case is only 12 cans, which doesn't go far when feeding this many, but it did the job and I highly recommend this product.

My cats have been eating Nature's Variety Limited Ingredient canned food for a few months now, and they definitely prefer the duck over the turkey. They never eat all of the turkey, but they tend to eat most of the duck. I like that there is just one animal protein in this as opposed to several. One of my cats has a sensitive stomach, and he has not vomited this food up. We have repurchased this several times now, and we will continue to repurchase it! (I just wish it didn't contain the unnecessary peas!)

Order the 3-ounce cans
I bought a few 3-ounce cans from my local store to try this. The consistency was smooth and soft, and the pate in the can was surrounded by liquid. My cats liked it. So I ordered 2 cases of the 5 1/2-ounce cans because I have 3 cats. The pate in the larger cans is coarse, firm, and contains lots of bone chips, and there is no liquid. The cats are eating it, but do not like it as well, and I am concerned about the large amount of bone chips. I might try the 3-ounce cans again but will stay away from the larger cans.

Especially like the new limited ingredients varieties. Please do more, like rabbit? Nature's Variety rabbit solved my cat's allergy to chicken but I would be happier without the pork in the formula.

My cat's skin condition has greatly improved!
My cats aren't thrilled to eat it but will do so when nothing else is offered.
My Siamese cat's skin condition has improved dramatically since she has been eating only this brand, various flavors, of this LID (limited ingredients diet) of wet and dry food!

Excellent product by my standards but I don't eat the food.
I myself am fussy about what my cats eat. However, my cats are extremely finicky and have not eaten this or other high quality canned foods recently purchased. I refuse to feed them the grocery varieties of canned foods, of which many contain by-products. I am trying to coax them away from solely eating dry cat foods. I guess this review may not be too helpful. However, the "SERVICE" provided by Chewy.com is outstanding! -- responsive, courteous and professional. Chewy's website provides detailed product information, customer reviews, and is user-friendly. Email communications are sent in advance of anticipated deliveries. Product lines of quality pet foods and other items are extensive. Delivery items are packaged securely and arrive timely.

Wonderful .. except they won't eat it
I love everything about this food and had high hopes that it would represent a solution for my cats with food allergies.
*Especially since they LOVE the DRY version of this exact same thing.
Unfortunately, they won't even come near the bowl for more than a whiff and a snub.
I'll keep trying..
