      We purchased the rabbit flavor for our dog to give her another protein option. She absolutely loved it!

      A fantastic canned product that is ideal for dogs with grain allergies. It would help with potato allergies as well. Healthy, wholesome ingredients, with no fillers. Highly recommended!

        My Australian Shepherds smell this food from another room when I prepare it and come immediately! I use the canned foods to provide more texture to the dry versions of Instinct dog food. We all seem to appreciate the variety of meat proteins and flavors this food is available in. It is easy to switch from one to another as they are essentially nutritionally equivalent. My dogs seem to digest this food well, which was not the case with other manufacturers' foods we have tried.

          Every product I have tried in this line, Natures' Variety, is well-received by my dogs. Adding a small amount of canned food with the dry food (especially if you warm the canned food first) makes an irresistible meal, even for finicky eaters.

            My dog LOVES this food. Just a little in her rehydrated dehydrated ONP Easy-Raw food and she's very, very happy. She has reduced to a Vet approved weight on this combination in about 4 to 6 months... something I've been trying to do for about 5 years! I believe the key to her success was to drop the grain and filler. It made a HUGE difference.

            I have two dogs with food allergies. I feed dry and supplement with the Nature's Variety Instinct Canned Dog Foods. My lab usually gets loose stool from food changes, but I can add this food whenever I want without any digestive issues. Both my dogs love the taste and I trust the quality.

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

              Although mixed breeds are usually healthier, we rescued the one exception -- a 7 month old terrier mix with REALLY serious digestive problems! After almost $2000 in vet bills the first year, he is doing MUCH better with Instinct chicken canned and Innova dry (we had to experiment to find something he'd like, too). High quality food = smaller meals = less work by the digestive tract = smaller stools and NO MORE bloody messes. What a godsend to us and to him -- even better than the Hill's i/d!
