  • Fewer boost pellets lately?

    By on

    We love Nature's Variety food for our dog (she gets the Raw Boost kibble and the frozen raw medallions). But I've noticed the Raw Boost kibble lately has included far fewer Raw Boost pellets than in previous bags. This last bag had so few that several servings had no pellets at all. I shook up the bag to see if they were just distributed unevenly but, no, there were just very few Raw Boost pellets at all. :(

  • 5 STAR NUTRITION

    By on

    Read rating & comments for this food on several dogfood nutriton review sites (4) & all of them gave this food highest rating for protein content & quality ingredients. And my dogs agree - I've fed them Stella & Chewys & then Real Meat brands for the last 2 1/2 years but it was time for a change. I'd never fed them a "kibble style" food so was bit concerned they'd refuse to eat it. No worries - they loved the Natures Variety from day one . Yea - easy to feed & great nutrition!!!

  • Val refused to touch it

    By on

    I ordered this on a recommendation of a friend. I cannot say if it was good or not... the ingredients impressed me the size of the kibble is med to large dog sized. My picky eater refused, absolutely refused, to touch it at all! I am sorry to say this so I cannot give more information as to why he refused it as I tried it for a week with him and he never ate one single kibble.
