I use this dry product with two SUPER active Pitbulls and retired Labrador with hip and knee displaysia. This is one of the three or four Best dry foods available, if not the very best. Their website will teach you everything you need to know about canine nutrition...think rotation diet! It is high protien, super high quality ingredients, and there are no known allergies to the grain substitute, tapioca.

I have a Doberman and the pieces are so small that I think he pretty much just swallows them whole. It would be nice if a picture of the actual product would be shown instead of just the bag. I have had other foods that he liked much better. This seems to sit around for quite some time.

      Comments about Nature's Variety Instinct Grain Free Chicken Meal Formula Dry Dog Food:

      I used to feed a raw diet to my bullmastiffs, and although they did well on it, it was a lot of work, and more expensive than raw-feeding advocates like to admit. After a great deal of research, I gradually switched to Instinct Chicken. The dogs like it, and they are healthy.
      One additional advantage to Instinct is that is is grain-free. This was particularly important to me because one of my dogs was allergic to gluten.
