Nature's Variety

Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet (LID) Lamb Meal and Peas Dry Dog Food is for dogs with sensitive stomachs caused by food allergies or intolerances, where "less is more". This formula is made with only pure, simple and essential ingredients that have been carefully chosen and thoughtfully balanced for your dog's special needs. Complete and balanced for all breeds and life stages, it provides grain-free, gluten-free instinctive nutrition with one single protein and one hypoallergenic starch, combined with just a few other wholesome, natural ingredients. Fewer ingredients means fewer worries that your dog will react negatively to his or her food. Each kibble is coated with an exclusive green tea antioxidant blend for added flavor and health. And with the variety of omega fatty acids in canola oil and coconut oil, your dog's skin and coat will be nourished naturally from the inside out.

Simply put, Nature's Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Diets are made with one protein and one starch. What it contains is lamb meal, tapioca, canola oil, peas, coconut oil, vitamins, minerals and dried green tea. What it does NOT contain is chicken, beef, fish, eggs, dairy, grain or gluten, which are common food allergens. The kibble size is perfect for small to large dogs. It is naturally preserved, with no added artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Chelated minerals are added for better nutrient absorption. Because food-allergic pets thrive on simplicity and purity, most LID diets will not contain additional fruits, vegetables or other whole foods, even though they may provide some health benefits. With LID diets, pets with food sensitivities to certain ingredients can still have a natural, nutritious, complete and balanced meal.
