Unhappy Natures Variety Raw Chicken

Now that the NV chicken recall is over I found out that the raw chicken will not be available for 2 weeks. I bought a bag of beef but Lulu won't touch it or any other flavor but chicken. I may just switch them all to Origin kibble and get it over with. It's hard to be at the mercy of the manufacturer and have to switch their diet when they are doing so well! Frustration!

Carole, I had the same frustration. But I bought a bag of primal raw chicken in the mean time and they did just fine. My store got the new NV chicken this week so I exchanged my 6 bags today (I have a freezer just for the boys...LOL)

Tori is happy w/lamb and beef, too. Maybe you can try a different brand of chicken: Primal, Northwest Naturals, Bravo, Paw Naturaw, or The Honest Kitchen?

Sally, yes, I mean Orijen kibble. Man, I am the world's worst speller!!
Good ideas gals. Missy, my store told me that NV isn't even going to make any more chicken for 2 weeks. Now you have me wondering if he knew what he was talking about........I'll check it out.

I asked today at the store I shop at. They said they would not have chicken in stock for at least a month. Of course we are far away in Canada..but still.. lol
(fyi.. i have not used NV raw in a very long time)

BUT! i did buy a box of the NV Sweetspots today. I gave one to Beamer this evening and he did not know what to do with it.. He managed to eat about 75% of it in about 30mins. I tossed the rest.

I think the distributor in our area was pro-active, when the first notice came out. I actually got a call from my pet store informing me. (they are the more expensive of the two stores I use, but that call bought loyalty from me) The other store gave me the same two week story but ended up getting some and I happened to be in there.

don't forget you can get BOGOF coupons from naturesvariety.com/getraw-- you can keep it going a while if you have many different e-mail addy's LOL.

Missy, I got one coupon when I signed up 2-3 months ago, and I got one ($3 off) with the Chicken recall. Are you getting more? What or where are the "BOGOF" coupons?
