Description

Natural nutrition begins with the Instinct by Nature's Variety Be Natural Real Salmon & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food. The recipe starts with wild-caught salmon for plenty of all-natural protein to support healthy, lean muscles, and never contains any fillers, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meals or artificial preservatives and colors. Guided by the belief in the power of raw, each kibble piece is tumbled with crushed freeze-dried raw fish to raise the bar in nutrition and flavor. And your pooch will taste and feel the difference!

Key Benefits
  • Made with wild-caught salmon as the first ingredient for lean, healthy muscles, plus whole grains like brown rice and barley.
  • Raw on every piece as the kibble is tumbled with minimally-processed, crushed freeze-dried raw fish for real meat and flavorful nutrition.
  • No fillers and zero corn, wheat, soy, chicken or poultry by-product meal, brewer's rice, artificial colors or preservatives.
  • With added vitamins and minerals so it’s a complete and balanced diet in every bowl for dogs of all ages.
  • Poultry-free so it’s great for dogs with food sensitivities, and is made in the USA with the finest ingredients from around the world.

    Liked at first

    By on

    My dog has stomach issues so she’s been on the salmon limited ingredient which she loved. My vet told me to stop feeding grain free food due to the new finding that it’s not great for large dogs hearts. So I bought her this food she like it at first but not towards the end of the bag she would only eat half or actually leave it had to bribe her to finish and she started eating grass and had more gas. So I put her back on the limited ingredient salmon with cardiac support vitamins It’s very difficult to find a food that doesn’t have peas lentils chickpeas. Not a natural ingredient for dogs.

    Still transitioning

    By on

    We’re still transitioning from a grain free salmon mix to this. The dogs all like it just fine and I am pleased. I see no changes in them, their costs look good and small kibble size works for big and littles. Only negative I’m noticing is a bit more gas. They had none with the grain free.

    My dogs love it!

    By on

    All 3 of my dogs love it! I switched from Rachel Ray to Be Natural Salmon and I can tell a difference. Their coats look shinier and healthy and they get so excited when it is feeding time.

    Smaller 4.5 Lbs Bag Has Smaller Sized Kibble?

    By on

    I previously bought my dog the 24 lb bag of food which had larger kibble sizes than the 4.5 lb bag of food. They're the same exact bag but just different # ...why would the kibble size be any different? I'm worried if I should be feeding this to my dog now.

    great for dog's allergies

    By on

    Our puppy has allergies to chicken and chicken by products, so we were happy to find a food that had fish protein and rice and the same good things that he needs minus the chicken, so we highly recommend this to anyone who has a puppy who suffers from allergies.

    Ripped off

    By on

    My dogs love the product, but the so-called repackaging included a drop of three pounds for the same price. Not happy with that.
