Nature’s Variety dog food – a review & giveaway!

We were recently given the opportunity to sample the brand new offerings from Nature’s Variety. I quickly consulted my two product research helpers below, and lo and behold, they were down for sampling some new food!

My eager taste testers: Maddie (L) & Izzie (R)

There seems to be a lot of controversy and split opinions lately on whether to feed a dog raw food or kibble. Now with the new Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost you have the first and only product line to offer both high protein grain-free kibble and freeze dried raw, conveniently together in the same bag. My dogs tried the chicken, but the product is available for dogs in chicken, duck, or venison.

My girls pretty much love chicken, but there have been other chicken dog food samples (that will remain nameless) I’ve given them that they have not cared for. So, it’s safe to say they won’t eat just anything and are somewhat discerning customers. They both really seemed to enjoy the Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost. In fact, I would have taken some pictures of them enjoying it, but I’ve learned to not get in a dog’s face when it’s gobbling its dinner.

Some of the benefits of the Instinct Raw Boost formula include:

  • Grain-free, gluten-free kibble (no fillers) plus freeze dried raw
  • May provide relief for pets with weight issues, skin and coat conditions, grain allergies and intolerances
  • Freeze dried raw pieces provide natural enzymes for digestive health
  • Pure ingredients for optimal nutrient absorption
  • Essential fatty acids for healthy skin and coat
  • Complete and balanced for all life stages and all breeds
I do have to say that I’ve become somewhat of a nutrition label snob lately and read through labels on my pet products like a detective. While this product has many ingredients, it doesn’t have many of the cheap filler products that many kibble brands contain. Additionally, the crude protein in the product is 42%, which is higher than many other brands I’ve come across. Overall, the product is 72% pure animal ingredients and nutritious oils, and 28% veggies, fruits, vitamins and minerals.

Also newly available from Nature’s Variety is a product called Raw Daily Boost. The product is a powdered supplement in a canister that contains minimally processed freeze dried raw ingredients like meat, fruits and vegetables. This product may be mixed in with kibble or canned food to give the benefits of raw, and comes in chicken, beef, lamb, or venison.

My girls tried the chicken Raw Daily Boost. This product had a heavy powdered consistency that I personally didn’t care for. It may have mixed nicely with canned food, but didn’t necessarily mix well with just kibble and a little water. While it may not have looked pretty, the dogs gobbled it up, and licked the bowls clean, which is probably a more accurate measure of the product than my aesthetic concerns.

And now the part you’ve been waiting for….

Would your dog also like to try a bag of Chicken Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost? All the cool dogs are doin’ it! And the nice folks at Nature’s Variety are giving away one (1) bag each to four (4) lucky DogSplendor friends. Isn’t that nice of them? Please note that the contest winners are limited to US residents only (sorry, doggies in other countries).

    I love Instinct kibble, my pit abosutly loves the little chicken bites! Since I found Instinct he thinks he’s spoiled now-he eats the chicken peices then eats the kibble.

  • Sylvia Walker

    It would have been a lot more convenient if it stated that only USA could enter…at the beginning!!! I went through it all and then noticed that because I am in Canada, it won’t count…DARN IT!
