Rated 5 out of 5 by Marelle My English Mastiff has severe food and environmental skin allergies (including a severe allergy to chicken). I did a ton of research and went through more foods than I can count, and the Natural Instincts Turkey is the ONLY food my dog can eat. His fur is coming back, he doesn't need anti biotic shots near as often, his stools are formed and great, and no gas (YAY). I HIGHLY recommend this food to any dog with allergies!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nuni Best brand ever, but...
I love this brand; it's probably as natural as you can get in a dry dog food. We've tried other limited ingredient dog foods and my dog has liked them just fine, but I wanted something more natural so I tried this. She ate it for a few meals then refused to eat it anymore. She has never done this with food before! Even when I mixed in some of Nature's Variety raw bites (which she loves) she would pick those pieces out and leave the rest. It's very healthy food and I highly recommend it, but my dog won't eat it. The pieces are very dark and made her stool almost black and a little more solid than usual (sorry for TMI!), so I'm not sure if it made it harder to pass her stool and that's why she wouldn't eat it or what.
Before this food we had Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Raw Boost Small Breed Dog Food (Turkey) and she gobbled it up at every meal. We will be switching back to that from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by axel the bully Saved my bulldogs life!!
I have had my English bulldog on this food for over a year now and I we both can't be happier. He has always struggled with food allergies, but they took a turn for the worst a little over a year ago. He was consistently covered in hives and I even found him in anaphylactic shock one day and had to rush him to the vet. I believe it was from glucosamine which is made from shell fish and found in almost all dry dog foods. He has always had tummy issues when feeding anything with potatoes and some proteins. After his anaphylactic shock scare and continued hives I knew I had to change his diet and try to find out what all he was allergic to. I had a sensitives and triggers assessment done on him using his saliva and fur. I was shocked by his results. He is sensitive to almost all meat proteins, the most commonly used fruits (apples, carrots, pears), white potatoes (which I suspected). I had fed him Instinct in the past and he always did well so I came back to your website and found the LID Duck! He has been on this since and has done so well. No more diarrhea or major hive breakouts. So far this is the only dry food I have found (other than raw) that doesn't contain any of this food allergy triggers. I can't thank you enough for making this amazing food. It has been a lifesaver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SaveAPit What a blessing!
I went through a handful of brands within the first year after we rescued our AmStaff - he either had no desire to eat them or he would get chronic ear infections and hives all over his stomach - the vet continued to tell us it was probably staph and prescribed antibiotics. We finally decided to take it into our own hands and try a grain free diet with the Limited Ingredient Duck (my husband also has many food allergies, but we never would've thought our rescue would). It is also nearly impossible to find a food that is grain free and does not contain any type of potato - but we found it! No more bumps, ear infections have stopped and, without getting too detailed, poop patrol has gotten so much easier (I think there is definitely something to the added clay) :) It had now been about three years and since my local petfood stores no longer carry the duck we order it.
We have recommended and raved about this food to all our friends with dogs, especially those that share our love of pitbulls, as they tend to have more problems with allergies and yeast (we found this during countless hours of research). Yeast levels can increase with consumption of grain, causing ear issues and itchy, pink feet that smell like corn chips (I now know my previous lab had this but never fixated on her feet).
