My dog Lola is a 5 year old Jack Russel/Rat Terrier mix. She is 14 lbs, healthy, and very active.

Let me first say that I'm not a person who goes online to write reviews about anything, but for this I had to! Last year my dog started having terrible itching problems. Red belly, licking feet, scratching behind the ear etc. It was not fleas. I was convinced it was a food allergy. I did quite a bit of research and we went through a lot of trial and error before she started doing well on Blue Buffalo Basics turkey recipe. She liked it but it didn't have the protien content I wanted. Then I found NV instinct salmon formula. We transitioned over to that and she remained itch free. For the last 2 years I've been switching between Instinct salmon and Instinct lamb. These foods are great.

I decided what the heck, I've read a lot of good stuff about the NV frozen raw, lets try it... WOW!!! It wasn't even a week before her coat just turned silky smooth! She's been on it about a week and a half now and no itching, no pink belly so we're going to stay on it. Gave her the weekly bath Sunday and there was about 1/3 as much fur caught in the drain afterwards as there has been every week for the past few months. Shedding much less already! She LOVES the food... gobbles her 3 medallions up in seconds every morning and night. She is more energetic and is definitely noticeably happier. I am SOLD! Sure its a little pricey but its not like the food she's been on was cheap, just a few dollars more per week. I could see where the price may seem outrageous for large dog owners. For feeding, I just throw her thawed medallions on a cheap paper plate, a few seconds later when she's done I just throw the plate away, no mess!

I love that they have this food available, and it has lovely ingredients. It is also very easy to portion and there are a variety of flavors. Unfortunately, it is totally unpalatable for the cat who really should be on a raw diet because of his IBD. I can't even begin to start transitioning him to it, because if I even use the same spoon to mash up the raw and then use it to mix the canned into his bowl, he will refuse to eat it. This same canned food (Wellness grain free) is eagerly devoured as long as there is no trace of the raw. So far I have tried rabbit, venison, chicken, and lamb formulas, all with the same results.
Literally, I cannot even mix in a pin-head sized amount of the raw with a large portion of canned or he won't touch it. It almost smells like clay, not like meat of any kind. Which is fine, as long as it is good for them (it does contain montmorillonite clay after all) and palatable. Unfortunately, it is not attractive at all to him. I am so disappointed.
Of course, the dogs will eat it, so I am not totally out of luck. The cat does love the wellness grain free food and he is diving right in to the innova evo I got samples of. But he really should be eating raw. And who knows what the stools are going to look like. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know! I am ready to try anything!. Are there any raw foods that are more enticing?

Comments about Nature's Variety Raw Frozen Lamb Formula:

My 17 year old chihuahua is the pickiest eater. She did not like Honest Kitchen, did not like Blue Buffalo, and had to be forced to eat because she didn't like any foods I got. She will not eat kibble at all. I got this and she LOVES it! She eats so fast and is feeling much better. She loves her food now and looks forward to it. Since she is small the cost is not too bad.

          Comments about Nature's Variety Raw Frozen Lamb Formula:

          We just added two LARGE Maine Coon Cats to our household and we wanted to make sure they moved to a raw diet. Reviews all pointed to this being one of the top options and they were right.

          We started out slow with a mix of dry their food mixed in and over a week slowly put in less dry food until they are now on raw only for their evening meal. We will be doing the same for their morning meal as well.

          These are BIG cats and still young and growing (so 16 - 18lbs each) and they are getting two medallions each. So eventually they will got to 3-4 per day.

          We are defrosting in a small sealed marked tuppleware container. Right now we are just replacing medallions as we use them and letting them defrost in the fridge. Seems to work really well.

          One thing people don't note - but should - this food doesn't smell anywhere near as strong as most petfoods. Very muted which is great for indoors cats.

          We are going to be trying the other proteins - we will see if they love those as much as they have the lamb.

          Comments about Nature's Variety Raw Frozen Lamb Formula:

          I have a pit mix that has been on one antibiotic or another for various infections for about 8 months. He has switched through multiple types of grain free hypo allergenic diets, and I can't even pin down what is bothering him. The vet is stumped and he kept getting sick. After alot of reading, I finally decided to switched to Nature's Variety. They have a good reputation and I am not prepared to feed raw on my own just yet. It is expensive, but my dog has been antibiotic free for 3 weeks which is the longest stretch in 8 months. He used to scratch his ears constantly and now its only once every few days. His gas is also completely gone and even on the grain free diet, it was a killer. I am really hoping this helps him out in the long run, but in the short term, he is the healthiest he has been in nearly a year. I plan on giving him a solid 3 months before I make an permanent decision, but I will never ever go back to dry food again.
