Rated 5 out of 5 by Missy 5 STAR NUTRITION
Read rating & comments for this food on several dogfood nutriton review sites (4) & all of them gave this food highest rating for protein content & quality ingredients. And my dogs agree - I've fed them Stella & Chewys & then Real Meat brands for the last 2 1/2 years but it was time for a change. I'd never fed them a "kibble style" food so was bit concerned they'd refuse to eat it. No worries - they loved the Natures Variety from day one . Yea - easy to feed & great nutrition!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hulk Great product....
I spent we'll over four to five thousand dollars trying to help my pitbull out. Every vet went threw the same ole same guidelines of test. Steroid shots were the only thing that would help clear up my dog for a week or so then back to chewing and scratching himself to nothing. He would have these serious outbreaks, nothing would help they ran test on him and all. They Still couldn't tell me what he was allergic to. I started home prepping him his meals, which the main ingredient was chicken. That's when I notices how bad and worst his reaction got so I did some research and I tried every grain free dog product out there. I finally came across natures variety raw boost venison and lamb meal because there wasn't chicken or turkey in it. My dog cleared right up after a week are so. He's doing much better his coates healthy, shiny and soft to touch. Diezel is 9yrs old, I would recommend this product to any dog that may have food allergies...it helped save me the head ache I was going threw with not knowing what could help my dog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ValnLac Val refused to touch it
I ordered this on a recommendation of a friend. I cannot say if it was good or not... the ingredients impressed me the size of the kibble is med to large dog sized.
My picky eater refused, absolutely refused, to touch it at all!
I am sorry to say this so I cannot give more information as to why he refused it as I tried it for a week with him and he never ate one single kibble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MagsFood ONLY dry dog food my 2 picky dogs will eat!!! VERY nutritionally sound food!!!
I have 2 VERY picky eaters who will eat a brand of dry dog food for a short while then refuse to eat it again later.
Ever since I began feeding them Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free dry dog food, they eat every morsel and have been for a very long time now. This is great for me as I grew tired of having to throw other dry dog food in the trash when they refused to eat it.
They first began eating Nature's Variety chicken flavor (which they love) and now eat Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Venison & Lamb Meal Formula Dry Dog Food which they like even more!!!
Also of importance is that this food is VERY nutritionally sound with real meat in the form of freeze dried raw pieces. It's a very complete, grain-free high-protein kibble that supports my dog's digestive health. It also includes healthy Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids for their skin and coat health.
I recommend that anyone with a dog who is a picky eater get this food!!! And, you can know you're feeding them a very nutritionally sound food in the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PiperMackie Easily digested and increased coat luster
I can't say enough good things about Nature's Variety! Recently, I adopted a seven year old Doberman who was not in good shape. Due to a months' long regimen of necessary antibiotics (advanced kidney infection and periodontal disease), his poor gut was ravaged. Diarrhea, vomiting, and the most room-clearing gas you can imagine were an every day occurrence. I dreaded drop-in visitors because one poot required hazmat-level action: open windows, neutralizer, fans. It was awful. But within a week or so of switching him off Castor and Pollux (sp?) to Nature's Variety Instinct Raw, poots be gone along with projectiles from either end! I switch him to the different protein types periodically, and I have to say the venison and lamb seems most beneficial for him. Please don't let the price steer you away. This is GREAT dog food. My other dog eats straight raw, but for Levi the rescue Dobie, Nature's Variety is where we'll stay!

Rated 1 out of 5 by n2xsru I wanted to try something different .....
Ive always fed Blue Buffalo but after the recent law suit thought i may try something else. The dogs ate this ok, mostly only the freeze dried bits are what they would get excited about. The kibble is pretty small so I dont think they chewed it as well. This food did however give both dogs BAD gas. The stools seemed to be fine and didnt see any other changes good or bad in the dogs. After receiving emails from BB about their processes and reassurance I think I will go back to the old food. I guess if its not broke, dont fix it. Chewy is still the best place to purchase pet supplies from with outstanding customer service.
