Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Grain-Free Lamb & Salmon Meal Formula Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing that worked! My Male cavalier King Charles spaniel has a super sensitive stomach. I've tried multiple brands of foods and multiple different proteins to no avail. I started added the Natures Variety Raw Boost Mixers to his dry food and he consistently had the best poop I've seen from him! His gas went away too. I figured why not switch him to this food with the raw boost included and I couldn't be happier! I used to have to wash his butt off EVERY day multiple times a day. No more! Thanks natures variety and as always, chewy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this option for my dogs! I had been feeding this food in the lamb & pea option, but felt my girl was getting a little bored. When I found this flavor combination, I immediately ordered it to try. Both dogs wolfed their entire bowl down and continue to do so several weeks later. I like the salmon for the skin & coat benefits also. Thank you for offering this formula!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm switching to this food The Dog Food Advisor rates this food 5 stars and I want the best for my dog so am switching to this food. I like the raw bits included. She likes it fine, but she's not too fussy, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is Great! My dog is a very picky eater plus she's allergic to chicken products. This food works really well for her and she's loving the raw boost pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog says, "scrumpdillyumpcious." I say… YEA! My dog is loving Nature's Instinct Raw Boost. No more grain-allergy problems -- itching, pulling hair out and vet visits for antibiotics due to skin infections. She no longer dilly dallies…. she eats! Her digestive system is happy, too. And I love the fact that I ordered a large supply online, I didn't have to carry a heavy bag to a cash register and then home…. UPS brought it to my door. And I consider myself a good shopper -- and Chewy's prices were the best. -- B.Joy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this food! I recently switched from the Nature's Instinct food without Raw Boost and my dog was not interested. So, I switched back to the Raw Boost and tried this flavor. He loves it! Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kibble My active dogs compete in Agility, Rally, Obedience and Barn Hunt. I prefer to keep them fit and trim and this kibble does just that. Both dogs seem to do better on a Grain Free diet too. I find that I can rotate between the proteins too without any belly issues. While I'd like to be organized enough to feed raw, I am not. I like to give them raw chicken necks once a week but rarely remember to thaw them out. This kibble contains freeze dried raw pieces that the dogs love... and I don't have to remember because it's already in there! My dogs are healthy, have firm stools, and shiny coats so I'll be keeping them on the Instinct Raw Boost Kibble for a long time to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! Yummy! I usually had hard time to ask my little one to eat. After switching to Nature's Variety, she is doing a lot better. We both like this product as it does not contain potato so it is lower in calories & carb which does better in maintain in body weight. We also tried the Duck & Turkey with Raw Boost. She likes that too! Even though price is little bite higher but as long as the little one like it & willing to eat her meal, it is totally worth it!
