Hello:  I am in the process of finding a new canned my boys will eat.  Any concerns/red flags regarding Nature's Variety Instinct canned?
I know back in 2007 it was not involved in the recall....but I am still uncertain about Menu Foods.

Currently I am feeding Addiction from New Zealand....but am having a very difficult time getting it in.  I live in Ontario, Canada....so some of the foods available in the USA are not available here.

Thanks for any input.  I only use "grain free" canned foods.

My girls loved the Natures Variety limited ingredient, but Cassie's poop issues have flared and she needs some grains (megacolon stuff). I'd give it a try, for sure. Perhaps others will have more information for you.

I fed this for awhile in rotation until the cats either didn't like it due to some subtle ingredient change or they got bored with it. It seems like a very good quality food although I can see how even to me kind of "mono" and boring...

I still try to vary foods/brands from one meal to the next to help prevent boredom, poop issues, and issues steming from possible unforseen unbalance in company recipes.

I agree that it's a good food. I have used it from time to time. I'd use it more consistently, but my cats don't seem to care for it except once in a great while. My experience was the same as Meowli's--something changed, and then they didn't like it any more. But I have picky cats.

ETA: Two of mine LOVE the newer pork flavor, but it causes an allergic reaction in my fish-allergic cat, even though there is no fish in it that I can see. It's either the kelp, or he's allergic to pork, too.
