Flavor Name: ChickenSize: 13.2 oz. Can (Case of 12) Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer, I also feed this food to my cats. I recently contacted Nature's Variety by email and they confirmed that the cat and dog Instinct canned formulas are exactly the same. By buying the large "dog" cans here combined with the subscribe and save discount, the price per ounce is about 50% less than the small "cat" cans - awesome savings on a food I would otherwise have trouble affording.

Nature's Variety canned is a high quality food with 95% real meat. No by-products or grain. It's a healthy food that both of my cats seem to really enjoy (the only other canned foods my picky adult cat will eat are EVO Cat & Kitten and Tiki Cat). I regularly buy the chicken and rabbit flavors, and periodically get duck and venison as well. I also believe the montmorillonite clay in these formulas help to keep my kitten's stools well formed (he tends to have loose stools on canned foods without this ingredient).

I originally started buying Nature's Variety Instinct because it is one of only a small handful of canned pet foods that DOES NOT contain carrageenan. Carrageenan is derived from seaweed and used as a thickening agent, but many studies link carrageenan to digestive inflamation, ulcerations, and even cancer. I'd rather not feed such a sketchy ingredient to my beloved pets. Kudos to Nature's Variety for not including this potentially dangerous ingredient in their food!

A note on packaging: Amazon's packaging of Nature's Variety cases is sometimes inadequate. I've received cases so dented that I didn't feel safe feeding it to my pets. Returns are easy, however, and it's been my experience that Amazon processes refunds/replacements quickly.

Flavor Name: RabbitSize: 13.2 oz. Can (Case of 12)
Currently, the rabbit for this (and the RAW frozen) are sourced from China. Only the Instinct Dry kibble uses rabbit sourced from France. It's an oddity amongst NV's products (everything else seems to be sourced from the US.) Buyer beware as, despite reassurances, Chinese sourced food has had lots of problems (chemical contamination.) Supposedly, at the moment, NV is looking to change the source for the wet canned and frozen to France as well; but it hasn't happened yet.

Flavor Name: ChickenSize: 13.2 oz. Can (Case of 12) Verified Purchase
In our latest case of dog food, EVERY can was either dented or partially crushed. These were not shipping damage--they were random in the case, but every can had a dent somewhere. It appears that the manufacturer was using Amazon to sell the damaged cans because they don't sell well on the shelf. We have not found any that were bulging or leaking, but we would not buy dented cans if we were shopping at a store. Here's an opportunity for some quality control.

Flavor Name: ChickenSize: 13.2 oz. Can (Case of 12) Verified Purchase
Our sweet dog (Brenda Lee) loves this food and it is great for her too. Smells and looks good enough to serve to house guests on crackers. However we would never do that as it would make (Brenda Lee) mad. Kidding aside this is very nutritious dog food and our girl thrives on it.

Flavor Name: ChickenSize: 5.5 oz. Can (Case of 12)
I wish people wouldn't write a bad review about a problem they created rather than telling about the excellent quality of this food. It ruins it for everyone who is looking for a good food for their pets. This is a excellent food I have been using for years without any problems. My cats and dogs never tire of it and lick their bowls clean every single time. The company is also wonderful to deal with if you have any questions or concerns. The prices for this are also very user friendly and make it cost effective for pet parents who want to feed quality to their fur babies.

Flavor Name: ChickenSize: 13.2 oz. Can (Case of 12) Verified Purchase
My wife and I spent months trying to find an ideal dog food for our pack of vicious toy poodles and Chinese Cresteds. We wanted a brand that was all natural and as close to home prepared as possible. We have had our pack on this brand for many years now and they are extremely healthy. While I am not sure if this food has anything to do with it or not, one of our pack has Addison's disease. We discovered it when she arrived from the person we adopted her from. She is a Toy Poodle that should have weighed 7 pounds, but when she arrived she weighed only 4.5 pounds. We would put her food down and she would act like she wanted to eat but she couldn't. She would hover over her bowl but would not take a bite. Our vet, probably the best in Louisville, KY, diagnosed her within 2 days. After we started treatment and got her electrolytes stable, we took her in the following year for her annual exam. The vet could not believe it was the same dog and he said it was the first time that he had ever seen a dog with Addison's look so good. That he could not even tell that she had the condition. My wife and I, unscientifically attribute it to our diligence with her medication and a healthy serving of Nature's Variety dog food twice a day.

In our opinion and experience, there is no substitute for a good diet for healthy and happy dogs. I would recommend this food, and have recommended this brand to every dog owner that I come across.

Flavor Name: LambSize: 13.2 oz. Can (Case of 12)
I have 3 terriers and one is an allergy dog. She's got both seasonal allergies and is sensitive to food ingredients. After years of treating the symptoms with drugs I started reading about how a "species appropriate" diet would help with her allergies. Dr. Becker's Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats: Simple Homemade Food I never knew by reading the label on dog food what was good or bad, now after learning about how dog food is made, what ingredients are most important and what I should avoid, I've started feeding "grain free" and as low a carbohydrate feed as I can find commercially. We must be careful that dog food isn't overrun by ingredients that have too many carbs like potatoes (sweet or otherwise) peas and grains. Dogs wouldn't get those in their natural diet unless in the stomach of prey. Be careful, when a food ingredient is listed on the label multiple times, the food is mostly that ingredient. So it could be all potato and not meat. Anyway... In an ideal world I would be cooking for my dogs, but I just don't have the time or the freezer space for that. After much research, trial and error, I've found Nature's Variety's line of products, from a small company, dedicated to quality, American ingredients (as best I can tell). Their products are made with high quality ingredients and with an ancestral diet in mind. Even though I leave kibble out all day, my pups dance around the bowl at dinner time to get Nature's Variety grain-free canned food. What's nice is that since they don't use grain or too many carbs, my dogs get good nutrition and their stool (yeah it gross but that's a factor in buying dog food) is firm and small and less odoriferous.Read more ›
