Rated 5 out of 5 by BrendaLee Part of my cat's regular rotating menu
I'm so grateful for nature's variety limited ingredient canned cat food. Rabbit, duck and lamb are part of the novel protein diet that has really played a leading part in eliminating my cat's IBD issues. There are no more scooting episodes, no throwing up, no funky issues with waste...Just quality product with nothing else that it doesn't need. Even carageenan isn't present, which I can't say about the other brand of products from Natural Balance that I just shelved. I wish I hadn't seen it on their label, but I did. I also serve my cats the dry rabbit formula limited ingredient diet. They love it!
So now the only thing I'm hoping Nature's Variety will consider are a couple of other limited ingredient flavors: venison, pork, buffalo, pheasant...and add a duck dry limited ingredient too, and I will be fully brand loyal. We just need something else that we can add so there will be more choices for me to keep him from becoming bored on his diet. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing. And don't eliminate any other flavors. It has been a wonderful thing to see my senior cats finally in a good, stable place with their food. : )

Gave my cat who has IBD a buffet of Nature's Variety Limited Ingredient and this is the only one she will eat. She has already gained some weight back so I'm happy about that and I'm sure she is feeling better

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat2 Good for my cats with IBD
I have two cats with IBD and both of them do fine with the lamb limited ingredients. They seem to like the taste of it as well. Paws crossed they will continue to like it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elizabeth Good Quality but be careful of Peas if there are allergies
I have a kitty who has a food allergy so I've been trying a variety of proteins. We cleared the itching with another brand (I and Love and You Rabbit) so I was searching for the next protein and according to Jean Hofve's book "What Cats Should Eat" its better to find a few different brands if you can. After about 12 days on the Nature's Variety Brand (even though it was on an approved list of quality foods) - the scratching started again. We tried the Venison as well and the same thing occurred. After speaking with a Chewy Rep, they thought it might be the PEAS in this food, and that was indeed the COMMON ingredient in their regular foods and limited ingredient foods (no matter the protein). The Chewy rep said that the "I and love and You" Brand is one of few that does NOT include peas - so this would explain a lot. Thank you Chewy.com for your quality food, great pricing and wonderful service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mtrio It worked well for my cat with IBD
...except it's so dense and bland, not a strong smell to it, that he got bored of it. I need to blend it with other proteins so he'll eat it. But it worked for diarrhea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mary56 cats did not like Lamb
I bought the Instinct Lamb because Instinct discontinued the Pork can food. My cats LOVED the pork. So, I tried the Lamb and none of my cats enjoyed it. Maybe someone else's cat may fancy this favor but my cats are now trying another pork favored cat food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Squalliesmom Good for my IBD kitty
This food is great for my IBD kitty. My only complaint is that it is very dense and hard to break up into manageable mouthfuls. I also always add a a couple of spoonfuls of water to all my cats' canned food, and when I add it to this, it pretty much turns into a sticky, gray "clay." But she doesn't seem to mind, she eats it just the same!
