The Only Kibble She Truly Loves

I rescued my pit bull, Natalia, from a neglectful and irresponsible "breeder" in 2010. Despite being severely underweight, it was always a struggle to get her to eat. We think it must have been anxiety from her past living conditions that caused this. She was so shy, she had to be in my quiet bedroom with me to eat her food. We had her on kibble after kibble, and then raw for a while, and despite becoming healthy, feeding Natalia was never easy. Eventually she started refusing all kibble, and raw became impossible because it was so pricey. I started experimenting with different flavors of Natural Balance canned food since the price was as good as it gets for quality canned food, and you have so many unique protein sources available. I tried bison, duck, lamb...none of them did the trick and the duck upset her stomach. Finally, I tried the venison. This one was a winner. After a while I decided to try adding a little bit of Sweet Potato and Venison kibble to her canned food. She continued to eat well even as I replaced more and more of the canned with kibble. And I noticed that she wasn't as nervous at meal time, or any time at all! Finally she had something she looked forward to eating. Her gassiness went away as well, and her stools had never looked healthier. For anyone who has ever had a pit bull, their gas can be horrible :) so this was a blessing as well. ...Today Natalia eats mostly Natural Balance kibble, but I still add some canned food for extra flavor and protein. She also likes the L.I.T. Limited Ingredient Treats Sweet Potato and Venison treats, and the Jerky Bark (which you seriously need to make in venison!) It is so great to have her happy, healthy, and to not have to buy a new case of canned food every week or more. Thank You Natural Balance!

Allergies

This is the only food my dog, Timmy, is not allergic to. If it wasn't for L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Venison & Sweet Potato, my dog Timmy would have to be put down he is now the most healthy he has ever been in 5 years and he's only 6, mind you his breed can live up to 15 years or longer (shih-tzu). Thank you so much for helping me keep my fur baby and making him healthy again. I wouldn't know what to do without him.

Virtually Bald Rescue now has beautiful fur!

I went to the shelter to adopt a young shih tzu or lhasa and came upon a 9 year old shih tzu/yorkie mix that was virtually bald. This poor little guy barely lifted his head up when I checked him out and I immediately had a theory that this was a case of severe allergies. I took him to Petco and the manager there recommended the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Potato and Duck food. Within a month, he had a beautiful coat and was as lively as a puppy. Your food saved this dog. Thanks for all that you do!

Montana is looking great!

Hi Natural Balance - when we adopted our second Bernese Mountain Dog, Montana ("Monty") at 3 1/2 years old, he came to us severely underweight, bad teeth, unhealthy coat and skin, loose stool...the works. I tried every high-end kibble recommended and even put him on a raw diet for a while. Poor boy still scratched, got ear infections, bit his paws, bad dandruff and terrible stool. I was at my wit's end. A friend at the off-leash recommended Natural Balance L.I.D. Sweet Potato & Venison or Sweet Potato & Bison. I am now on my fourth bag of the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison and just yesterday, our groomer said how fabulous Monty looks and how healthy his skin and coat have become. I am SO HAPPY I have found a kibble that works for my boy. Our female 9 year old Bernese has chronic pancreatitis and must be on a 8% or lower kibble. She has been on Vet prescribed food for a few years now, but I just bought my first bag of Reduced Calorie and will give it a shot to see how she does. I'll report back to you after a few bags. Bye for now.

Finally!!

I have a family of 3 pugs. A mama, and a boy from each of her two litters. They have all been on high quality limited ingredient dog food their entire lives. Everyone they meet are amazed at how youthful and healthy they are for their age. I used to have to keep switching brands and varieties as inevitably, one or another of my pugs would develop an allergy or digestive problem to an ingredient. Then we tried Natural Balance's L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Rabbit and Potato formula, and I was amazed at the results! The energy level of my aging puggies sky rocketed. Also their fur became rabbit soft, to the envy of all at the dog park! All of the Petco's have sold out, and tell me there has been a supply issue from the company. I truly hope it is resolved as quickly and inexpensively as its uncompromising high quality standards permit. I hope this entry is useful. Thank you!

Perfect for Dogs that Can't Tolerate Soy

Thank you for making ONLY canned vegetarian dog food on the market that does not contain soy! My dog has severe food allergies to both meat and soy, so this is the only canned dog food that I can feed her. She loves this food and even does a little "dance" when I'm scooping it into her bowls. Please don't stop making this food!

My dog loves this food. As he began to get older, he became very sensitive to other brands. After trying what seems like every other dog food, a representative in the store suggested I try Natural Balance. Best advice ever...He is no longer vomiting, having diarrhea, dry/flaky skin, and he smells much better. He also loves the treats. I have given him other foods on occasions when traveling and not able to get Natural Balance, and it has been horrible, so I am convinced that the Natural Balance switch was the best thing for my baby!!

My Puppy Loves It!

I have a 5 month old male golden retriever he has no allergies but I still bought this because it is grain free but this is the first food he eats and likes it.

We were at the vet today and Spook weighed in at 38.8 pounds! We have continued on the diet and lots of long walks. He has a lot of excess skin and may not ever get rid of his love handles, but he has curves now and before he was just one big round dog. - Patricia T.
