Transition Instructions

It is always a good idea to start out slowly on a new diet with any pet. Slowly increase the amount of new food being added to the present diet over a period of 5-7 days. If any digestive upset or loose stool occurs, make the transition more gradual. It is a good idea to allow your pet's digestive system to calm down and return to normal before proceeding.

  • MY TWO CATS LOVE THIS LAMB

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    The ingredients for this dog food are exactly the same as the smaller more expensive cat food cans. People who have two or more cats can really save by doing this..The dry dog foods do not apply tho. Instinct products are some of the best foods out there. My cats enjoy most of the products Instinct makes. I use several in my cats rotation of foods along with Weruva, Tiki, Hounds and Gatos and Nulo. None of these have carageenan, I try to avoid this ingredient along with too many gums and potatoes etc. My two boys, one of whom is picky almost always finish this Instinct Lamb. When they need an incentive to eat their dinner I add a few crumbled-up pieces of Instinct chicken raw boost The ingredients for this dog food are exactly the same as the smaller more expensive cat food cans.

  • Canned Lamb formula

    By on

    Natures Variety is an excellent product. The large cans of Lamb formula had an excess of liquid. My Shihpoos wouldn't touch it. The small cans are fine

  • Life saving nourishment for my cats

    By on

    My two cats are 18 and 20 years old, and while the older one was painfully creaking when she walked,the younger one almost succumbed to kidney failure. After IV fluids and a bout of raw and home-made foods, Nature's Variety Instinct grain free foods have been an amazing and trouble free nutrient that I credit for keeping my cats on an even keel. Big White no longer creaks, and loves this flavor along with rabbit and venison, and China, the younger, rarely shows signs of past kidney problems. 5 stars are for better health, trust in the product enough to share and tell other pet owning family and friends about it, and worth the money.

    Vet instructed easy to digest food with little fat. This fills the bill. My dog loves it & is so excited when given a meal. She sort of quivers all over in anticipation.

  • very healthy canine product

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Our std. poodle, who is on a pancreatitis-type diet, is doing very well. He's into week 7 of major diet change and seems to have stabilized on the canned Instinct, low-fat foods.

  • overall very good

    By on

    My dogs like the food, but I wish there was a bit less liquid in it. Perhaps the liquid would be helpful for those who put the canned food over kibble. We don't do that.

  • Came through for my pup

    By on

    One of my dogs gets anxious away from home and over the holidays at my parents' house wouldn't eat anything. I picked up some of this canned food and she ate it all up! Now I mix a couple spoons into her kibble regularly. It's perfect for her: no potatoes, no fish products, no grains. She likes all proteins (save the salmon, it makes her sick) but I tend towards venison or lamb as those are the main proteins in her kibble.

  • My dog loves this food!

    By on

    I recently switched to this food because my dog is having a yeast problem (ears, legs, etc.). After 2 weeks, I am noticing less yeast on his legs and no ear infections at all! He is quite finicky when it comes to food and eats this without hesitation.
