Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great, Dogs couldnt handle the food Both my golden retrievers got terrible gas and diarrhea from the food. The food has great ingredients but something just did not agree with my dogs. I ordered this food via auto ship. I needed to return the bag of food and they said that they will credit my account and to donate the food instead of sending it back. That's amazing. 5 stars for being an amazing company..;) April 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My dog's allergist/dermatologist recommended Nature's Variety. Both my dogs love it, their coats are more beautiful than they have been in a long long time. The bonus is that it truly reduced the size of their stool. A lot of dog foods claim this, but this is the first time I've experienced this result. Just wish it were a little less pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for skin health and allergies I have an english bulldog that has some contact allergies as well as an allergy to something in grain that causes her to itch. This food removes any dandruff, makes her coat completely soft and shiny when she used to be coarse and unhealthy looking from the dinginess of her coat. She thrives on this food. From a cost standpoint, we did try to switch to something else cheaper - twice - and each time I regretted it and started the process of switching back within weeks - she started to itch, got dandruff, etc. This is worth the price for the quality of food and the quality of life this gives your dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Salmon Is Dixie's Favorite Dinner! Dixie has given this 'Instinct Salmon Dry Dog Food' 4 paws up, for both flavor and for the healing properties found within the recipe of this superior diet. Her coat and skin has never looked better and the allergies from which she used to suffer are a thing of the past. Hurray for 'N.V. Instinct Grain-Free Dry Dog Foods' line. It's a real winner with Miss Dixie! August 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solved my Corgi's problems We have been feeding Nature's Variety to our Corgis for many years. When we got our new boy three years ago, we continued using the feed we had always used. We noticed that Smokey was constantly licking and chewing on his paws. Our breeder suggested we try a grain free Salmon dog food and we tried a bag of Instinct Grain-Free Salmon. Amazing!! Smokey no longer chews his paws!!! We are now on our third big bag and both our Corgis are loving the new food and doing well on it. The comfort and health of our boys is well worth the added expense. Thanks Nature's Variety and thanks too Mr. Chewy for making it easy and economical to order our dog food shiipped directly to our door when we need it. Happy Corgis - Happy Corgi People!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by okay, dog still has yeasty feet My dog likes this food well enough, but she's still got yeasty feet. Not sure if we will stay on this food. March 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like it and will change to this brand I bought this because it has similar ingredients to my old brand and it was on sale. I switched both dogs - GSD and Lab - quickly because I was out of my regular feed. Both like it very much, there was no upset, their stools have shrunk to the size of olives from their usual cow patty. The kibble size is smaller than usual but very hard and crunchy. An open bag can smell up the whole room. January 17, 2013
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
