Rated 5 out of 5 by klwoods67 Great food for your pet
Our dog was having yeast issues and was scratchy a lot and chewing his hair off of his paws so we had to take the sugar, starch and grains out of his diet. I was really worried at first that he wouldn't like it because his other food had a lot of fruit and veges in it they called it lifesource bits. We had just purchased is old food so we worked this in with the other to slowly introducing it into his system. We now only feed this to him and he loves it and the scratching is almost gone and he looks and feels better. So this has worked great for us and plan to try the other flavor that Nature Variety has. We recommend this to feed to your dog if there is a yeast issue or if you just want your pet to feel healthier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShadowsMom Nature's Variety Instinct is Great!
I have been feeding my dog Instinct since I brought him home from the shelter. His coat is soft and people love to pet him. He eats both the canned and the dry. I have never seen a recall on these products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lildreamer The only product that works for my itchy crew!
6 year old litter mate brother & sister Boston Terriers and a 2 year old female Frenchie. It's hard to find something they all tolerate well. After 2 years of experimenting with dry food, Nature's Variety has proven to be the only one that works for us. Very pricey but well worth it because it saves on vet bills :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNDonna Allergies no more!
My dog has suffered from allergies since he was a pup. We were told by the vet we needed to change his protein type. That didn't help. Another vet said the same thing but also said he has environmental allergies too. After much research I found that yeast overgrowth on dogs will produce false positives on environmental allergy tests. I also found that dogs with too much yeast must NEVER have starches, gluten and carbohydrates in their food because they turn to sugar which is what causes too much yeast on the skin and in the ears as well as internally. Every dog food I looked at contained some type of starch or carbohydrate or gluten. This was the only food that I could afford for my 110 lb beast of a dog. IT WORKED !!! He is no longer suffering and we are no longer suffering having to live with a stinky yeasty dog! The only other thing that would have worked for him was a raw diet or to cook for him but I didn't have the time for either of those options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mariah351 Great special diet!
Have a foster beagle, that came into rescue with terrible skin issues. Aside from all the meds she had to go on, her diet needed to be special. High protein, low or no sugar and grain free. This dog food filled the bill and she likes it. Her itchiness has gone, her skin is clearing up and her hair is starting to come back. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dragon41 Product & ease of purchase
The product is healthy, made with natural ingredients and no grain. My dog Becca loves it. I am extremely impressed with how easy and helpful it is to go online and order the dog food. To have it delivered allows me to buy larger bags and not struggle with the weight. And, the price is better than PETCO. Thank you

I had been feeding my Border Collie puppy a dehydrated raw but I had to switch back to a kibble due to cost when I ended up with another of my current pup's litter mates, which put me at 4 dogs. I put all four of my dogs on another high quality kibble (not grain free), which they did well on, but my puppy's coat lost some of its luster. When I switched to Instinct Grain Free, within a few weeks, their coats were all shiny again, and they are still doing wonderfully on it.
The caveat is, that when I put my 4 year old border collie girl on this food, the protien level was too high for her and a urinalysis revealed crystals in their urine. Per two different vets, this is an effect of the high protien levels in the food. So, this food is great, but just be aware that some dogs' kidneys don't tolerate the high protein level well.
