I’ve been adding a cup of “Natures Variety Instinct Raw Boost Venison and Lamb Meal” to each of my English Mastiffs meals, 2 a day. He eats about 2 lbs raw at each meal. I’ve read great reviews on the “Raw” we feed, but can’t seem to find any information on the Natures Variety Raw Boost. Does anyone have any information on this food. Thanks
It’s basically the Instinct kibble and the Freeze Dried raw mixed in, both of which have their own reviews. Not enough freeze dried pieces in it for me though. I like to put Vital Essentials FD nibblets into my kibble.
Thank You pugmomsandy. Where do you buy the “Vital Essentials” Thanks again
The Vital Essentials website was being updated last week when I checked, but you can find it on amazon and probably some other online retailers. I get the 1.5 lb bags and it lasts a while for me since I just use 1/4 cup at a time but I have small dogs and they don’t get it everyday since I feed a variety – kibble, canned, raw. It’s also a great treat size for them too. Freeze dried is much more expensive than kibble so feeding a large dog is somewhat cost prohibitive for some but I do get a discount on it which helps since I feed 3 small dogs!
Thank you pugmom
You’re welcome! I like the ingredient list of the Vital Essentials. Very simple. Meat and bones, organs and oil. Can’t get any shorter than that! Sometimes I’m at dogforums(dot)com and pugvillage(dot)com too (aka Pugtown). Dogforums(dot)com has a great “raw feeding pictures thread”.
I haven’t fed the NVI Raw Boost kibble to my dogs, but my cat eats it for her kibble, along with her canned and other moistened freeze dried foods, like Stella & Chewy’s and Primal. She loves this kibble way more than some others I’ve fed her….Orijen/Acana, Fromm, Nature’s Logic….so this is what she gets.
Thanks for the information pugmom, always interested in any info on raw food since my English Mastiff eat about 80% raw every day.
PugMomSandy: you go to dogforums too? I know Jan does, don’t think I knew you did! What’s your name there?
Good to know, thanks
I’m Pugtown there, too. Rarely post except for maybe the raw feeding pictures thread a while back.
Sandy, did you realize that I’m the same InkedMarie there as I am here?
You know, I just haven’t been there in a while! I mostly look at the picture thread when I’m there. It’s a hoot! There’s a black pug there in several of them!
Black pug is yours, I imagine! I’m going to browse when I get home from the gym, see if I can find you! I’ve been a member there for years, been posting to DogFoodChat for only a year or two
Yes, I post to dogster, dogforum, dogforums, cavalier talk, dogfoodchat, and here, of course! I also like Vital Essentials freeze dried, but it’s harder for me to get than the others.
What’s your name at dogforums?
