Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Dog Food I tried this food for my yorkipoo who wouldn't stop scratching. The vet said to give her Benadryl but I wanted to see if a different food would help first. I chose Instinct because it didn't have any of the common ingredients. It worked perfectly. Her skin is healthy, fur is super soft, and no scratching. Her stools are small and dark. She doesn't need to eat much at all. She is 16 lbs and eats less than a cup a day. She has been on this food for over 4 years. I have tried to switch to cheaper foods a few times only to have her scratch again like crazy. Fortunately she doesn't each much and chewy saves me money. I could never afford to feed this to my bigger dog. But with the high amount of protein you probably shouldn't feed it to a larger dog anyway unless they are super active. If you have a smaller or active dog with skin problems this may just be the medicine you are looking for! Don't forget to mix it in slowly over 2 weeks for a gradual switch or your dog will get sick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazed! My dogs are doing so good on this dog food! You will be amazed when you see how good it really is. I especially think this dog food company cares about dogs and cats. The blood work just came in today and Amazed is my only word. May 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Improvement in 12 hours Our 3 year old GSD has major allergy issues now for over a year. 5 food changes later, I can't believe it but could not wait to comment, we started converting her over 12 hours ago and already she has started to reduce her constant scratching and chewing on her feet and knees. She has been on a vet prescribed limited diet for over 2 months now with no relief in sight. A friend/trainer of ours for over 20 years suggested a diet of gluten/grain free food. We had already had her on grain free for a year. The vet diet number one ingrediant is Potato. Our trainer said that potatoes can be a real problem, that conversation was yesterday. That led us to this food, and I can't believe what we have seen already. This poor dog scratched herself every wakened moment and now for the first time in a year is relaxed and showing signs of relief sleeping now like a baby. I pray tomorrow shows continued relief and if so Natures Variety will have won over a new best customer! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food My dogs love this food. It is expensive but well worth it. They have thrived on this. The kibble is very tiny so even good for small dogs. This is a top notch food and I have recommended it many times to other pet owners. March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I fill the bowl up and my beautiful boy wipes it clean!!! My boy has no problems with any of the Nature's Variety Instinct food. I believe ANY dog will eat it because it's just simply good and has great nutrition and obviously tastes great too! March 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Dogs with Allergies! Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Salmon is one of only a couple of kibbles that my westie/maltese mix with severe food allergies tolerates. It doesn't contain any grains, chicken, eggs, potatoes, or alfalfa. It's very hard to find a kibble without any of these ingredients. Tiny poos are a plus. I also like the fact that it comes in a Healthy Weight variety, which is good for allergy dogs needing to lose weight. Highly recommend!! January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by She loves it! Our Shih Tzu mix rescue has allergies and is always scratching her ears and chewing her feet. In just the short time we have fed it to her, this has lessened and the best part is - she loves it. We will be ordering this product again. January 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nature's Variety Instinct Grain-Free Salmon Meal Formula Dry Dog Food This diet is tailor made for my Yorki, Bella. She has developed food allergies over the years and has become allergic to grains, chicken, turkey, beef, potatoes, carbohydrates, (including sugar, molasses, fructuous), and the vet suggested we try her on either lamb or fish. The previous fish food I got for her was Wysong Epigen Fish kibble. She loved it, and it was all she ate for 6 months. The rash, however persisted. Turns out that one of the minor ingredients in Wyson was fish meal. I was astonished when I read that. It's a really great product, but NOT for my dog. I switched to Nature's Variety about ten days ago. No problem doing a gradual switch and it took about 4 days converting her from one food to the other. No bowel or stomach problems. I feed her twice a day. Dry kibble in the morning and kibble mixed with a small amount of freshly cooked Tilapia or Cod at night. I also add a capsule of Acidophilus to help prevent any yeast infections and 1/2 capsule of an immune builder to help her own system fight off the allergies. Her paw chewing and itching is now in remission. Thanks Nature's Variety!! November 6, 2013
