  • smells good

    By on

    Gus loves it and as usual licks the bowl clean, but then there isn't much he doesn't just gobble up. This and the rabbit variety are just used as toppers, or I'd be in the poor house. LOL

  • Seems to like this best!

    By on

    We picked up a rescued dog in February, a wire haired pointing griffon mix - about a year old, and tried to find a highly rated wet dog food that is healthy and that he really enjoys at the same time. This seems to be his favorite! We also tried the rabbit & duck formulas of this brand as well, but he seems more enthusiastic about this turkey formula. This one does seem moister and have more gravy than the other two, and cheaper as well than the others which is an added plus. We'll be sticking with this one. Also, like the mid size cans.

  • LOVE, love this canned food and so do the dogs.

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I do not fee Nature's Variety Instinct kibble, have considered it but really like the food our two are on now but am not a fan of their canned products. Our one can only have turkey or duck because of a very sensitive stomach and this limited ingredient canned food fits the bill beautifully. It's not loaded with anything but quality ingredients that I feel good about giving to both my dogs. I use it primarily as a Kong stuffer and stuff some in a bone at night with baby food, lol and they have it every night as a sort of calming way to end the day. Both dogs, one 7 months old, sit patiently at 7:30pm every night for their stuffed frozen bone.

  • Easy on stomach

    By on

    The previous dog food we used was discontinued so we had to switch to another brand. Our four year old Lhasa-Bichon rescue had no difficulty adjusting to this new brand. No stomach upset, loose stools... She loves all of the flavors too--turkey, chicken, and beef. I occasionally spot an entire pea or nice sized carrot chunk :-)

  • He eats it

    By on

    He likes it it better than merrick. Can't have chicken so this is what he gets. Is he crazy about it? No. But his diet is limited due to allergies so it will do just fine. Not a big food oriented dog anyway.

  • Dog gobbles it up.

    By on

    I had not ordered this turkey before because of the 'diet' on title, but I liked the limited ingredients. My dog loves the turkey flavor & 'gobbles' it up.
