Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Lamb Formula Canned Dog Food
best canned dog food
My dog loves Instinct lamb and duck canned food. The important aspect of Instinct canned is that the brand is one of few that promise that their can linings are PBA free. My holistic vet highly recommends Instinct canned for that reason and also because of the nutritional value. She recommends home-made dog food, of course, but if you don't have the time, her no. 1 choice is Stella and Chewy's, then Instinct canned. She does not recommend kibble for many reasons, including the danger of high temps during the extrusion process.

Texture is a bit dry....
If your dogs are anything like mine, they like meaty and moist food. I think this especially important when mixing in with kibble. My dogs are each different size/age but all three are under a year and even starving they lacked the interest in this food. There is very little moisture in the can newly opened, and refrigerating removes it almost entirely. I had to add broth or gravy to appease puppies which is very hard to do since they eat anything. I have a daucshund, Yorkiepoo, and a chi terrier mix.
**This varies per protein within the product line, I have not encountered this with the other two options**

Ingredients are great, but food is really firm
This is the firmest canned food I've ever seen. I split a can of food in half every night to give to my puppies. I like to mash it into the bowl to make it harder for them to just gulp down. But this food makes that hard to do since it's so firm. It's like clay.

GREAT FOR ALLERGIES !
I mix this canned food with the kibble for my beagle. She loves it & it's great for a dog wit allergies, especially since it's grain free.
Sticking with this canned food & not searching for another.

The dogs went crazy
The dogs have been eating the chicken Nature's Variety and seemed to need a bit of a flavor change so I purchased the lamb and they love it.

We add a little wet food to our boy's kibble, and he sure does love this one. My goal is to stay away from grains and potatoes. This food meets both those requirements.

Great ingredients, easy on the stomach. My cockapoo loves this food and the kibble too!
