Our 4 cavaliers love this. Did I mention our 2 herring gulls (George & Mildred) love it too? 🙄😂😂

Hi, my grandparents have a 3.5 year old staffie who recently weighed in at 25.5. They need her to lose some weight but she wont eat dry food. Just wondering if anyone could give us some advice on what we could give her please? Thanks x

Couldn't find anything that my chocolate lab could tolerate. This food has been a life saver.
He is thriving on it and his coat turned from being dull and looking awful to a gleaming shine after being on special diet for just two days

Since putting my 12yr old welsh springer on Natural Instinct special diet all the symptoms of Cushing's disease which she had been diagnosed with have gone! She is not on medication (which made her ill) she has lost the huge pot belly, no longer drinks excessively and best of all, no longer were gallons in the house overnight. She had become very lethargic but now is full of energy. I recommend natural instinct foods to all the dog owners we meet when out and about!

I switched to Natural Instinct Special Diet for one of my dogs after he had a pancreatitis, because it's low in fat and have found it very good for him.
