Transition Instructions

It is always a good idea to start out slowly on a new diet with any pet. Slowly increase the amount of new food being added to the present diet over a period of 5-7 days. If any digestive upset or loose stool occurs, make the transition more gradual. It is a good idea to allow your pet's digestive system to calm down and return to normal before proceeding.

  • Great Food.

    By on

    First, and most importantly, my cat LOVES the food and happily eats it. Cats are finicky so that's a plus. I bought the food hoping to reduce gas issues my cat was having with a different food. It's better with this food but not gone. I'm thinking there might be more to the problem than a food allergy/issue. I wanted to start with the food first. Like I said, it is better with this food.

  • Cats seem to like it better than in the past

    By on

    About a year ago, my special diet cats wouldn't touch this and now they love it. I know Instinct changed some of their other formulas, so maybe this one changed too. It is really helping improve my cats' health. I just hope they don't have a shortage again like they did last year.

  • Rabbit is the one my cats love

    By on

    I was searching for grain free limited ingredient food because one vet thought one of mine had an allergy. It turns out to be cancer, but in trying many different options, this rabbit was the favorite. The one with the health problems wouldn't even touch any other flavors. He also loves the matching dry food.

  • Good quality

    By on

    Our cat loved flavor and with severe food allergies this is working out. So many others either cause skin irritation and/or vomiting so even though pricey, it's worth her wellbeing.

    By on

    Just wish I could get my picky cats to eat it! Once you give them less quality food, it's impossible to get them to eat the healthier brands. But I definitely recommend this brand

  • Instinct - Limited Ingredients for cats

    By on

    We've used Natures Variety Instinct for our Bengal since he was 8 mos. The vet at the time, because he had some issues, recommended the limited ingredients line. He's 10 now and a happy healthy member of our family

  • My Finicky Cat Loves This!

    By on

    Pros: My senior cat LOVES this, and he is very, very picky! I love the fact that it has limited ingredients, and it does not upset his digestive system. Con: Very expensive. Bottom line: I will buy this to feed once a week.

  • Fat Cat loves this!

    By on

    I wanted to transition my chubby kitty off fish flavored Fancy Feast & get her to lose some weight. I tried many different premium canned cat foods, but she wouldn't eat them. At last I've got her switched to the Limited Ingredient Nature's Variety Instinct....she is crazy for the rabbit diet. She is cleaning her bowl with every feeding. I'm hoping to gradually decrease the amount she is getting so we can lower her weight. She got fat on free-feeding of dry food, so this diet is much healthier.

  • he loves it

    By on

    My 15 year old was diagnosed with either lymphoma or IBD and sent home from the hospital with a couple of cans pf prescription food. He completely refused one, ate the 2nd for a couple of days and stopped. They were also horribly smelly and slimy. I tried another prescription food from Chewy but he only ate it for a couple of days. Someone else with a cat with IBD recommended this so after reading a lot of positive reviews - and thanks to Chewy's satisfaction guaranteed policy - I ordered a case. He LOVES it.It also has more juice to it than the prescription foods we tried and does not smell.

One of my other cats has also been seen finishing up whatever he has left behind, if he leaves anything behind. I love the fact that it comes in 3 oz cans. I like giving him smaller, more frequent meals and it's easier using 3oz cans. It is pricey and eventually I will want to feed all my cats this so that he isn't sneaking any of their food, but if this works, it will be worth it. … more
