Customer Reviews

Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey Meal Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog seems to Like the taste of Turkey Limited This turkey seems to agree for my German Shepherd. He likes the taste and it doesn't upset his tummy. I leave an extra bowl of it ( 1/2 cup ) next to his eating area, for snacking. He thinks this is his bonus treat. The size of the kibble is a bit smaller than his Orijen and if I mix he coughs it up. So, transitioning has been difficult... I will leave it out as a treat. It seems to be a good dog food. I just don't think it will work for my dog ( this is my second small bag ) The kibble size is similar to Fromm Gold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our pups love it 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. Thaaaanks guys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent My dog has some allergic to some ingredients. So our vet suggested to put him on the Limited Ingredients diet. I had tried so many different brands before, this is one of the brand that I like, and I have been purchased this brand for a couple years now. I tried Natural Balance, my dog didn't like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This food was a lifesaver! My dog is incredibly picky, he just never really liked his food. I could tell that he was eating it because he was hungry... and that was it. I decided to start feeding Nature's Variety because after doing som research I really came to like the brand. and I was hoping that being able to easily rotate between flavors would help my little guy like his food a little more. I went through a few flavors and then decided to try this because it was JUST lamb. I put his bowl down and he finished it in 5 minutes! In all the time that I've had him he had never done that. I've been feeding the food for a few months now and I have yet to switch, Kody enjoys his lamb every day and I don't think that's going to change any time soon.. PHEW! :)
