I've been trying to get my kidz on RAW but they're sooo angry & on a hunger strike now....so I had to cave & give them Fancy Feast again!! AArrggh! I've been searching for weeks for a different option. I have had to keep the RECALL list on hand and narrow my choices down over & over, then I checked with each individual company I was interested in to make certain they had no recalled foods.
Finally, I have found 3 companies I feel good about, regarding great nutritional content as well as no grains, no wheat or corn or rice gluten, etc. as well as none of them has ever been recalled.
One of them was "Nature's Variety" that you mentioned! I found a website called PetFoodDirect.com and I ordered it there reasonably priced. I also ordered "Wellness" brand thru that site, I ordered cans and the "Wellness CORE" dry kibble. It's on special right now for a #2 lb. sample sized bag for $7.49. Raw is best but these cans & dry I got look to be the next best thing, nutritionally.
I even ordered them cans of rabbit, from Nature's Varity & it contains 95% rabbit meat!! Lol the boys are (hopefully) gonna love it! I spent LESS on all this than what I usually spend at Walmart for food that isn't nutritionally sound by any means. I wish you the very best with this...I know it's horribly stressful trying to find safe foods for our beloved kids! I have been a wreck, desperately searching and have spent almost all my time online, reading up on all this stuff & doing research until my eyeballs are bleedin! Lol! I just ordered all this food this morning after I finally completed my weeks long research and should receive it in about 5 days. I'll let you know how they like it.
I got a total of #2 lbs. dry Wellness CORE grain-free kibble, and a case of Natures Variety canned rabbit, 12 /5.5 oz. cans, 2 cases of Wellness cans , 24/3 oz. cans, (1 of Land Lovers Variety Pack and one of Surf & Turf Variety pack, 24/3 oz. cans), and a case of "Instinctive Choice" cans, 24/ 3 oz. cans, totalling 84 cans in all plus #2 lbs. dry for $115.34 including the shipping, which was $12.00 for the Instinctive Choice and $14.44 for the Wellness & Nature's Variety. We spend much more locally for food so it was a good deal online.(especially if they like it! Keep ur paws crossed!! Lol!)
Instinctive Choice is a great food from Healthy Pet Net but they only have one flavor in the cans & a type of kibble that has grains & wheat added that I did NOT get, I just got the cans, and the boys get sick of it right away so I only got one case of that. I order it directly from the company and it cost 12 bucks to ship which was spendy, considering the food was only $20.00!! At any rate, I sure wish you luck and hope this might help lotsa others that don't have the time or resources to research like crazy.
I had purchased raw gourmet meat, (cornish hen, duck, chicken & turkey)LOTS of it & it will sit in my freezer unless I figure out something to do with it cuz the boys refuse to touch it! Lol! The lil twerps not only refuse & got hissed off, they have staged a revolt and are laying a HUGE guilt trip on me! Lol! Well, they WIN on the RAW (I can't bear those little faces peering at me balefully, tears squeezing out....yeah, the tears are mine!) but they're gonna get the healthiest canned I can get if it kills me! Lolol! So goooood luck!!!
Havva great week!
