    My local pet market was out of stock because their shipment did not arrive that week. My two goldens would not understand & would not be happy with this news. Chewy had the item in stock & they delivered on time. Good quality food... my dogs are well fed & happy! Thanks!

    My 9 year old Aussie was having trouble with the food she was on, seemed hard to chew and she didn't seem crazy about it. Switched to this and she loves her breakfast again, and eats it fast.

    I tried this food after the my dogs breeder recommended it. I was feeding him chicken and did not know that some Rotweiller's do not do well on poultry diets. Since changing, my dog eats regularly and seems to have less digestive issues!

    Great food for dogs with food allergies. My dog is allergic to every protein except lamb and is also allergic to flaxseed and cranberries -- two good ingredients, but not when the dog is allergic.

    Our Belgian Sheepdog has been on allergy shots and was still suffering from itching. After reviewing her results, lamb was the only meat she was not allergic to and after many hours of reading labels on pet food this one was one of two that to fit the bill and had none of her allergens. She absolutely loves the taste of both the dry, can and mixers (use the mixers as treats) and best of all no more itching. She has been on the food for 4 months now and we will never feed her anything else. She has her full coat back and looks and feels great. Worth the price!

    My dog is almost done with large. I have not seen any improvement in her skin problem yet. I heard something with a fish base would be better.

  • Solution to food allergies

    After trying several no-grain foods for my allergy-prone bulldog, Nature's Variety Instinct Lamb and Peas seems to have resolved his problems. After one month, his skin has cleared and a bonus was less gas.

    My dog has had a very poor digestive system & for over a year has had bouts of diahrrea and vomiting. His stools are firm & no vomiting. He loves the food. I like the limited grainfree formula.
