    I feed primarily Chicken Soup Senior but like to mix in a smaller bag of another food for variety, and in the past have used Eagle Pack Holistic, Calif Natural, and am currently mixing in Healthwise. I'm now considering trying this new Natures Variety food. Any thoughts on the "Nature's Variety Raw Instinct Grain Free Chicken Dry Dog Food"? Experiences good or bad?

    I'd like to know also..in comparison to solid gold barking with moon and innova evo...all are grain free.
    I gave a sample of the raw instinct to my pup..she loved it..the caoting attracts the dogs..she only wants this now...

    I do feel it's a really high quality kibble. One big difference between NV & Evo is that NV uses tapioca instead of potato... and contains more tapioca than Evo contains potato, meaning less meat. NV also has a looong list of ingredients, which I usually steer clear of.

    If you can find it, why not give your pups a Nature's Variety raw meal every so often? :p They'd probably love it!
