  • Use to be good food

    By on

    I use to buy this food for my dog for years. All of a sudden they stopped selling it. I was very disappointed. Come to find out the manufacture changed some ingredients in it. All of a sudden my dog started in with soft poo. I knew something was different with it. The texture was off, the smell was off. It was dry. So I switched to another brand. He seems to be doing well on it. I won't go back to this food. I feel if the manufacturer is going to change an ingredients they should tell people. I had to call them to find out. I also had cases of this food. I donated it to a shelter. You just don't up and change your dog food without some problems. I don't think they should either.

  • If you need to put on some pounds, this will do it!

    By on

    We went away on vacation for a week and pup had a little TOO much fun at "camp". All of the activity she got, she had lost quite a bit of weight to the point I could see her ribs and hip bones! I needed to get some weight back on her fast when we got her home so I switched to this high calorie wet food along with wild calling Beef and "Sport Dog Elite" dry and it did the trick perfectly! Within about a week she was pretty much back to her normal weight. This food is very high calorie compared to alot of others and also seems to be very fatty (lots of white stuff -fat- and very thick). So I wouldn't recommend this long term as it could cause problems with obesity as well as health issues. But We went away on vacation for a week and pup had a little TOO much fun at "camp".

  • My Picky Dogs Love It

    By on

    My dogs are very picky and if they don't like something, they go on hunger strike. I've tried various expensive foods and they turned they nose up at all of it. I ended up giving it all to a homeless man with a dog. When I got Natures Valley Instinct Beef flavor my dogs had no problem gobbling it up. I also buy the same brand of dry food because I've finally found a food they all love.

  • Great mixer

    By on

    My Husky lost her appetite after getting sick, so the vet recommended mixing in some wet food with her regular Fromms kibbles. I bought this because it was grain free and on sale, and my dog LOVES it! Once she's done eating, she goes back to check her food bowl a few more times to make sure she didn't leave any behind. She is not a picky eater, but she does have an incredibly sensitive stomach and this food seems to be fine.

  • IN A NEW YORK MINUTE

    By on

    My greyhound is a very finicky eater. What she'll eat today, she will turn her nose up at tomorrow. And greyhounds have loooong noses. Well, she has attacked her food dish every time we have given her this beef dish. For a dog with a medical condition, that is amazing. Glad I decided to try it. (For her. of course!)

  • My dogs are living longer!

    By on

    I have 12 rescues/adoptees of my own and half are in their upper teens! I attribute their health and longevity to my many, many years of feeding them Natures Variety Instinct. I alternate between the beef, chicken, venison and Salmon in the kibble and cans. I also give them the Nature's treats. I did my research on dog food and came up with this brand many years ago and could not be more pleased with it.

  • My dog loves it!

    By on

    After 5 years of eating the same food, my dog just would not eat it anymore. She also doesn't have as big of an appetite, so when I saw this came in small cans, I ordered it.
