Baxter , our rescue dog gained weight slowly over the past few years. I took him to the vet in January and was told that he had to go on a diet. My daughter, a vet tech and employee of petco told me to try fat dog food. I started him on it in February and am happy to say that he has lost 5 lbs. the vet is happy, I am happy and most of all so is Baxter. He loves the food and I can tell he is enjoying walks and exercise so much more. I would recommend this food to anyone who gas a pet that needs a low calorie food.
At first my Chihuahua did not like the Sweet Potato and Bison formula. So I started with the sweet potato and chicken and he loves it! I then bought a wagyu beef and legumes formula so that he does not get bored of the chicken formula and he likes that one also. One day I will give him sweet potato and chicken and then the next day wagyu beef and legumes. Thanks again Natural Balance for making healthy food for my pooch!
I have two boxers, both rescue dogs - one senior girl that was getting a bit pudgy and a young boy who developed pancreatitis over the winter. Prescription foods made it worse so I did my own research and found Fat Dog. I switched them both and couldn't be happier with the results! My girl has dropped 10 lbs. and my boy's tummy issues are completely resolved. They love this food and can't wait to eat it everyday! Thank you for making such a great product! Now all I need is larger bags of it...any chance you'll make a 40lb bag?
7 year old Chihuahua given to me. I do add a little bit of warm water to soften the kibble and then the food makes its own gravy. I used to buy the big brand names carried by all grocery stores until one day I visited a Petco and a store employee showed me the difference in the ingredients between a natural, healthy food like Natural Balance and the other big names out there.
I don't want to be mean to the pooch so I do buy 2 flavors at once. One day I will give him the wagyu beef and legumes and the other day I will give him sweet potato and chicken. I started with the bison and sweet potato, but he did not like it. The beef and chicken formulas he loves. I pour a little bit of warm water and then let it sit there for about 15 minutes and then I give it to the pooch. Hope this helps other consumers and I want to say, "thank you Natural Balance."

My dog loves this food. He's tried so many because of allergies.
Does anyone add water to soften or do your dogs eat it as is which mine does.
They love their Natural Balance!
My cat is the pickiest eater on the planet, but he will eat Catatouille Stew all day, every day. Oddly enough he doesn't like it out of the can, but only out of the tubs. Either way, this is a main staple in my house.
I was taking my pitbull too the vet all the time for allergies. The Petco lady told me to try the Potato and Kangaroo and within a week all Dutchess' hives and yeast in between her paws and her ears were all gone. I could not believe it. Now she is on no medications for allergies and is scratch free. I am one happy mommy.
Below is a picture of my dog Carlee. Carlee is a Shiba Inu mix that we found on the side of the road 5 years ago. She has always had problems with her nose. It was dry, swollen, bloody and had drainage. We had been to our vet and tried different oral medications and creams for her nose. Nothing was working. Carlee's nose was irritated and painful. Our vet suggested that if her nose didn't improve we should consider a biopsy.
My uncle has used the LID formula for his standard poodle that has allergies. Before putting Carlee through surgery I decided I would change her dog food to see if it helped her nose. Within a month I saw drastic improvement. Below are before ( 2 left) and after (2 right) pictures of Carlee's nose after we switched her to the LID formula. I am so happy that she is feeling so much better and her nose looks better on this formula. I never thought food could make such a difference. Thank you!!!
