Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Venison & Lamb Meal Formula Dry Dog Food
Not much Raw
I was excited to see this new product, because I was buying the kibble and freeze dried raw and mixing it myself. There really isn't much raw in this product. How disappointing. I won't buy it again and will go back to buying 2 products and mix it myself.

High quality dry food
I really like this entire line of grain free dry foods for my dog. 5 star rating from dogfoodadvisor.com, my dog likes it and is doing well on it. There are several protein sources to choose from and it is designed for rotational feeding.

Great food, Allergy Relief
Our dog got some nasty allergies to his food out of nowhere. He's on meds from the vet that are no longer working. Instinct is helping to clear that up and after only two weeks his fur is soft and lush and he's no longer trying to eat himself and rip out his fur! He's always been soft, but he's REALLY soft now, it's keeping his natural coat and skin oils healthy.
The food is great, high quality, our very picky dog actually likes it, and he seem happier and satisfied on it.
The only issues I have with it are: Cost and peas.
Peas: The new formula has peas.They have a risk of causing kidney stones, bladder blockages and eventually kidney failure. Poor fiber choice. Every food has a downside, unfortunately that is a big one.
New formula also causes some gas....

My Picky dogs love this food
I have 3 large (80 lbs +) dogs that are pretty picky eaters. Although they have been eating other flavors of Nature's Variety kibble, they go nuts over this one. They stand in their respective spots tails wagging waiting for their food bowl to be put down. I even feed it to my non-grain-free dogs. You and your dogs will be happy!

My two dogs gobble up their dinner- never happened before!
Before I fed my two dogs (a Bichon and a Maltese) dry kibble and had to put something in it (chicken, fish, etc.) for them to eat it. Now, with the venison and lamb product from Instinct, they eat their dinner without my adding something to the food. They are healthy and happy and look forward to suppertime!

Wonderful for Dogs With Allergies
Our dog is allergic to so many types of food. This is the only food that doesn't make him sick. It is limited ingredient dry food with raw bites mixed in. He loves it!
