Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocketrbn Excellent quality ingredients and limited/grain free
My 1 year old Lab adores this dry food. She has grain/yeast issues and is on limited ingredient diet/ venison but started to put her nose up at feedings. In my dog food search I came across this and liked what I saw so purchased. I mix it in with her other dry along with a handful of the Instinct raw nuggets and she dances for her feeding. Spoke with mom and pop feed store owners, they are so educated on all the different foods out there, about Instinct. They say it is top of the line and have many K9 police dogs on this food and highly recommend. Vet wanted my pup on prescription foods but I don't like the ingredients in them therefore my research. This food is great!!

Shipping was fast and accurate. My dog is highly allergic to many food items and this item is one I found he likes. Thanks.

We've tried a few Nature's Variety Instinct products for our dogs for the last few months, and all of them have been a hit. For about three weeks now we have had them on the Nature's Variety Limited Ingredient Diet--First the Lamb and now Turkey, which they seem to love the best. We switched from the Raw Boost because while they seem to love it, they still had some digestion issues and allergies we can't pinpoint.
It works great for them. They have allergy, digestion, and coat issues, so it can be difficult to find food that addresses all their issues and that they like. I love this brand, and so do my dogs. They have been less bloated, they haven't been itching as much, my one dog hasn't been licking his paw compulsively, and their eyes seem clearer.

Excellent dog food! My highly allergic blue pitbull was having bad skin issues with another good quality dog food but within 4 days of taking limited ingredient turkey his skin did a total turnaround and cleared up! For once I didn't have to take him to the vet!

One of my dogs likes this food, but the other one doesn't care for it. They do like the new rabbit treats though. I love Chewy for good service!

I put my dog on the Instinct canned food over a long vacation because she has a little anxiety when not at home and would only eat wet food. So I decided to try her on the kibble as well. I've tried so many other grain-free kibbles: limited ingredient, allergy formulas, etc etc. Some of which she didn't like, others that didn't seem to help ease her allergy symptoms. She can't tolerate fish products (oils, meals) and is allergic to grains and potatoes. I think I've settled on this one. She gobbles it up and it looks like her scratching and paw licking is going down. I mix in a little of the canned food still. I'm planning on trying out the other LID proteins to give her some variety.

A great food for dogs with allergies. I just wish the regular Instinct formulas eliminated flaxseed like the limited do, as that is my pups allergy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sandrachile This food was my life saver!
I recently discovered my shih tzu is allergic to everything i have fed her for the last 4 years.
Corn, fish, potatoes, soy, peas, bananas, milk, lamb and rice were among few of the items she is sensitive to. Unfortunatelly, this ingredients are present in every single one of the foods sold in this country. It took me an entire week of detailed reading through the ingredient list of every food in a few websites to finally come across this one. Then when I found it I was sad to realize how much it was going to cost me. Luckily, Chewie.com came as a better more affordable option, and free shipping as an added value.
Regarding the food, all I can say is how great this is. I had tried changing my dog's food a few times before and they always got sick. The last time I tried switching, one of them got seizures!. They were in Blue Buffalo for years, and I'm glad both of my dogs have had no reaction to the change. They love their new kibbles, and my shih tzu will be able to continue to eat her dry food without health concerns.
I am deeply grateful of Nature's Variety Instinct for thinking in dogs with such a strict dietary restrictions.
