      Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Canned Dog Food:

      We feed our Australian Shepard mix natures instinct can food in the morning and instinct dry food at night. This is a great dog food. After about two weeks on this brand, we noticed her fur was much softer and shinier. Her stools are regular, and she just looks great. I have pretty much tried every brand of dog and cat food on the market for my pets. Natures instinct is really a great one. My dog never tires from this brand.

        Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Canned Dog Food:

        My Pugs are picky eaters AND allergic to nearly everything under the sun. Trying to find a food that they could tolerate AND wouldn't turn their noses up at was daunting! NVI, Duck Formula has been the answer to our prayers! Not only do they LOVE the taste of this food, the lack of common allergan sources and the high-quality ingredients used has given me three very happy, healthy furkids! I highly recommend this product to all pet-parents, but especially to those who have older, food-sensitive or food-allergic companions.

        Comments about Nature's Variety Grain-Free Instinct Canned Dog Food:

        Because our dog has some urinary problems we had to add a wet food to the dry kibble. We tried the frozen Natural Instinct and although we liked it, it is far too expensive for us to use. The canned is less costly and is very much like the fresher frozen food.

          Our dogs coats and stools are great with this product. It is expensive but the adage that you are what you eat also applys to dogs. We decided to spend the money on good quality food and hopefully not much on the vet.

              Dogs love it, it's not really stinky like a lot of canned foods. The only thing is that the rabbit variety has a lot of watery liquid in the can - be careful not to splash! Don't want to go around smelling like dog food. :0)

                My dog requires frequent small feedings. He is tremendously fussy, and his likes and dislikes change frequently. Instinct canned food is one of the longer-lasting desirable foods. He has been eating these for several months, and he doesn't appear to be tiring of them. For this, I am extremely grateful!
