    I used Chewy for the first time using a coupon a friend gave me. I ordered a bag of dog food that came the next day. Shipping was free and I saved a ton of money being a first time user and scheduled shipping. My dog loves Instinct but it can be pricy. I'm glad Chewy was able to provide a financial break for me :-) Will continue to use for the future!

  • My dog loves it!

    I read a review on dogfoodadvisors.com for Nature's Variety and decided to give it a try. So far I'm very happy with how well my dog likes the food. He is 8yrs old and a like the fact that this food is for All stages of life. Chewy seemed to have the best price and I like auto delivery.

    I tried this beef formula as a break from the chicken formula and he loves this. It has a lower protein content than the chicken formula but it costs less also.

    Our rescued English Bulldog has been eating this product since she arrived. She has no allergies issues and seems to be doing well with this formula. She is eager to eat. She's digesting the product well and her flatulence is now non-existent. Happy dog, happy home.

  • A bit dishonest in product label.

    By on

    Great food, but it is mostly turkey and fish. Beef is weighed uncooked, so goes to front of list. Next is turkey meal and a variety of fish. Down the list after fat is lamb meal.

  • Grain and poultry free helped food allergies.

    By on

    My dog has food allergies, most likely to grains, corn, and poultry. Her paws swell. She gets a hot rash on her paws, lower legs, and arm pits. She lost small patches of hair looking much like mange. Since feeding her nothing but Instinct Beef and Lamb, the rash has cleared. Her hair has grown back. She is not chewing and licking herself raw. We don't have to give her antihistamines. We have a healthy dog with a shiny coat. She loves the food.

  • Very satisfied

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    This food is great. We pair it up with the Nature's Variety patties and rotate flavors around for optimum nutrition. My dog had trouble with other foods, but with this one her tummy is settled, and she loves her meals. She is bursting with health and energy and has a beautiful, shiny coat.
