Rated 5 out of 5 by Great way to make feeding your pet easy!! A Great way to make feeding your pet easy!!.. Chewy is a great service. Thanks. January 11, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by My cats love it I try to fed only raw but when I have to be away this is the only food I will feed my cats , it causes no upset stomach and no up turned noses like with many other brands of kibble January 1, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good, pricey though. I am back to feeding this expensive kibble to my cats because 1) they'll eat it --eventually, after they get used to it and 2) because it's top-of-the-line. The raw boost treats that are incorporated into the kibble remind me of Lucky Charms cereal. The cats pick them out first and then sniff at the boring ceareal part. What is a bummer is they reduced the number of "marshmallows" significantly. Anyway, this kibble is helping my cats slowly overcome their skin itchies. I thought they had fleas but it turns out their other kibble is giving them dry, flakey, itchy skin. That's what happens when you have sensitive kitties eatin' cheap stuff. October 24, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Raw Boost Kibble - Almost Non-Existant I decided to purchase a bag of this and was extremely disappointed in the minute volume of raw boost kibble in the mix. I bought the 5.1 lb. bag and would guess that it contains less than 50 of the raw kibble. My cats went crazy for the raw pieces, but I won't buy this again. I'll be searching for a new formula with a greater amount of raw included. November 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't blink or it's gone! So, I have tried a couple of dry cat foods for my two cats. One being a Petsmart brand, simply nourish, and another being Wellness core indoor formula. The cats ate it, but I noticed they would leave some food in the bowl. I thought maybe I'm feeding too much. Well, I decided to try Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Grain free Chicken meal formula and let me tell you, they LOVE it! My cats eat it within a couple of hours of it being in the bowl. Of course this means they have to wait another 22 hours before their bowl is filled again LOL! I am glad there is a food they both love. There is never anything left....never. October 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cats LOVE it !! I switched to this food after extensive research on all brands and chose this one for the lack of recalls and excellent ratings. My 8 yr old girl stopped eating the vet recommended high end food she had been on for 7 yrs I researched the food she was on after noting her coat looked dull and she was lazier than usual. I was shocked after reading the issues people were having with this other food. I immediately pulled her off.. no transition due to the health risk of the other food and switched to Nature's Variety..Both of my cats LOVE Nature's Variety rawboost !!! Within a month my girls eyes were clearer, her coat shined again and now she plays as if she is a kitten. Well worth the money !!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Natures Variety !! August 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Raw Boost MIA My cats are eating it no problem but I am extremely disappointed in how little raw boost there is in the package. Barely enough to mention. I will be trying another product with more raw. September 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fresh Goodness! My cats love this kibble! It makes their coats glossy & is great, nutritionally, for the babies! September 10, 2016
