Rated 5 out of 5 by Airedale4 Great stuff for a dog with food allergies
When we got our rescue Welsh terrier, her hair was coming off in patches, her skin was all scaly, and she stank. It took us months of trying different dog foods to determine that she was allergic to all or some of: corn, gluten (or some kind of grains), chicken, sweet potato and a lot of other proteins. Had her on Instinct Limited Ingredient Rabbit meal for years, and her skin improved 100%. Rabbit now being discontinued, we've gradually moved her to Lamb & Peas and her skin is still fine. Thanks so much for a good limited ingredient food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Corgiluvr Our Smokey Likes his new food!
We have fed Nature's Variety products for years now and was having a few issues with the grain free Salmon we were feeding our Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
I contacted the company and discussed it with them and they suggested that we try one of the Limited Ingredient feeds they make.
We chose the Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Lamb & Peas Formula.
We have only just started this feed, Smokey has been eating it for about two weeks or so and his issues seem to be getting better. Not completely yet, but we are still mixing a bit of the Salmon feed. By the next bag, he will be solely on the Lamb diet and the results, so far are amazing.
Much less flatulence, stools are quite firm and far smaller. His coat is beginning to look better. I think perhaps this is going to work.
He has had NO problems switching and seems to love the feed.
If you have a dog with food allergies or a "tender tummy", give the Limited Ingredient diets a try. I think we've found a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tobey Our Dobergirl loves it!
Our Blue Dobergirl has some food allergy issues so we are very particular about her diet. She was doing well on Back To Basic grain free turkey recipe until it went out of production. We tried the Natures Variety Instinct chicken formula and she would not eat it. We tried several other brands of the chicken or turkey and still she wouldn't eat it. Finally we tried the Instinct Limited Ingredient Lamb and Peas and she again became the devout eater that she had previously been. Thank you Natures Variety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrenchiesRus so far the only kibble that works for my allergy dog
I had been hesitant to try Nature's Variety Instinct LID kibble because I felt that there were better options for my dog. After exhausting pretty much every other food options, I gave up and tried. Well, so far this is the only kibble that doesn't upset my dog's tummy. She eats it happily and best of all, no more soft stool. If you have a dog with food allergies, you know how important good stool is. I am suspecting that potato (among other ingredients) isn't sitting well with my dog and NVI uses tapioca instead, it is hard to find a good kibble that doesn't have potato, eggs, fish, the list goes on and on. I think part of the reason why this has been working for us is the simple ingredient list as well, it also makes it easier for us to pinpoint what could be bothering her in the future. If you have a dog with food allergies, this is a must try kibble. I wish they had more different protein options available for the LID line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandra88 Best food for highly allergic dogs!
Keeps weight under control,my blue pitbull is allergic to life! It's taken me 2 years to find a dogfood that's perfect for sensitive stomach and major skin allergies! They better not ever change this formula. Smaller stools, my boy loves the food! Plus the lamb treats as well. His ear infection due to food allergies cleared up with in a week being in this food! Plus autoship it's only $68 where pet stores it's $75-85 range. It's worth it as it keeps him out of the vet! Highly recommend this lamb formula only for any highly allergic dogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MillySunflower Best dog food and worth the cost
Every dog that has tried my dog's food has loved it. My dog Milly seems to enjoy this dog food even though it is limited ingredient, the foods they add to the diet are nutritious and not just fillers that are in many other brands. This is very expensive dog food in my book but it is definately worth it for my baby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chestaroo The Perfect Food
Let me start by saying by saying our search for this food started with my Golden getting sick (vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy). We took him to the vet for stool analysis and blood work which showed nothing. The vet prescribed limited diet food. First we tried Royal Canin (which he refused to eat), then we tried Science Diet Z/D which he ate but his stools never firmed up and he started developing inflamed ears (which I don't understand since it's supposed to be hypoallergenic food). Anyhow, after researching a number of foods and reviews, we decided to try this food. His stools firmed up within a day and his energy level returned. Also, we never got a medical explanation for my dogs original issue but we found it suspicious that his symptoms matched the side effects of "Sentinal" heartworm pills (which we gave him two days prior to his initial symptoms - so we switched him back to "Heartguard" brand heartworm chews.

If your dog has skin problems, you might consider this food. My dog has displayed significant improvements since introducing him to this food two weeks ago.
