  • Seems like good kibbles

    By on

    I fed my Husky Orijen up until the formula change and plant move! It took me almost a year to find a good food she loves that I felt good about. Now no more Fromm from Chewy! I am thinking on trying this. I am so tired of switching foods. Chewy has been wonderful helping me. I think I will try this food mixed-up with Primal Raw.. Chewy you Rock!!

  • The poopers love it!

    By on

    The food apparently is very tasty, if the dogs can be trusted in their judgment. The small pieces forces them to slow down in their eating, which is nice. However, the smaller pieces also lead them into burning through it faster than other foods and they seem hungry sooner. But, could that just might be them anticipating the tasty meal?

  • lots of good ingredients and my dogs love it

    By on

    Nature's Variety seems focused on good nutrition. They claim to use meat, veggie and fruit ingredients sourced from the USA which is good, except for lamb, rabbit and the vitamin/mineral packet (a common situation in pet food). I like that they know the difference between "Meat" and "Meal" when it comes to protein percentage. Overall I'm happy with the product. Good website, too.

  • Glad I changed brand

    By on

    I wanted to continue with chewy. It's a very good company with great prices. So when they discontinued my brand I switched to instinct which is a top rated dog food. My dogs love it and it's a good quality food.

  • Good so far

    By on

    I just started my dog on this food to see if her skin issues would improve. It seems to be good food so far. I'm not sure if it will help yet or not. She seems to love it though. I'll update as I know more.

    My local pet market was out of stock because their shipment did not arrive that week. My two goldens would not understand & would not be happy with this news. Chewy had the item in stock & they delivered on time. Good quality food... my dogs are well fed & happy! Thanks!

  • My dog loves it!

    By on

    My 9 year old Aussie was having trouble with the food she was on, seemed hard to chew and she didn't seem crazy about it. Switched to this and she loves her breakfast again, and eats it fast.
