Cat loves the food and the box:)

My cat Boots only eats Natural Balance after his surgery for bladder stones. He not only loves the food but the box is one his favorites places to relax. Boots gives double STARS to Natural and I do too as this food has kept him healthy and stone free. Thank you!

Great product for weight loss!

I've had my 8 year old pug who was 38 pounds on this food for 4 months (2 bags). He's down over 6 pounds and I couldn't be happier. One more bag and he will be at his ideal weight. His energy has increased and he overall is a happier healthier dog!!! I would recommend this food to anyone who has an over weight dog. :)

We'll never change foods again!

We rescued our 10 1/2 year golden retriever several months ago and imagined we'd have an easy time with an older dog. Instead, Brinkley started exhibiting gastrointestinal problems and chewing away at the fur on his paws. Our vet thought it might be anxiety, but on the off-chance it was an allergy, she suggested we switch to a limited ingredient dog food. We did our homework and started him on Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Fish dry dog food. We noticed a difference right away, so we picked up the Sweet Potato and Fish dog biscuits - and he loved them! His entire diet is Natural Balance and we're thrilled to say his gastrointestinal problems stopped and no more fur chewing. Thank you, Natural Balance! Your products made all the difference in the world for Brinkley - and us!

The best on the market

I have a full blooded chocolate lab and rescued mix german shepherd. I did tons of research trying to find the best dry food out there and when I came across your product my search came to an end. The fact I can look up the test results for my bag of dog food proves to me you stand behind your products quality. I will be a lifetime customer and I also recommend it to ANYONE I see stand in the dog food isle and direct them to your website if they need confirmation. Thank you for giving me such a peace of mind and confidence in my choice.

Dental Chews? These are awesome!

Hoppy has always had a problem with bad breath. We've tried different products, but nothing worked very well. That is, until we tried Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. Dental Chews. He absolutely loved them! And they really helped his breath. We were impressed!

Allergies Almost Killed him

Binx has suffered for 3 years from mysterious allergies before I could find something that wouldn't cause him to scratch into an infection, cause shock, or land him in the ERvet. After putting him on this food, he has way more energy, isn't scratching at himself, or leaving chunks of hair around the house. This food literally saved his life. I am so happy he is better and we can go about our daily lives. This food is seriously worth it! Especially when it comes to allergies!

Thank you for a Chicken-free product!

I adopted a 9 year old yellow lab from a shelter where he'd been for a year. The shelter had been continually struggling with his loose stools and inability to gain/maintain weight. He was 55 pounds at adoption. He was parasite free and on a grain free diet at the shelter. After getting him home and allowing he to de-stress, I observed the loose stool issue did not resolve, there had to be another reason besides stress and grains. After some internet research I heard of "intolerance" to ingredients, versus an all out allergy. Intolerance would possibly have the reaction of moving the food through him too quickly, loose stools. I picked the most likely culprit to remove from his diet, chicken. I did not think it would take me a week of reading labels to find a chicken-free food. Even grain free foods claiming salmon or other proteins would have "poultry fat". To check this right I had to find ZERO birds. I finally found this food and switched him to it. Within a week he had perfectly normal stools. He has gained 15 pounds to a healthy 70 lbs. An ear infection that was chronic at the shelter completely cleared up and has not returned (we're in month 6 since adoption). I am able to feed him standard dog biscuits (with grain as an ingredient) with no adverse reaction so I truly believe that chicken is the main reason he had health issues, not a grain allergy. So THANK YOU for making a product with no chicken!

Well-being Restored!

My toy poodle, Ireina, seems to have developed various food allergies. We have tried every natural dog food kibble as well as canned meals. When we switched to canned I hoped her body could respond positively. However, not so. Despite the fact that the food was moist her excrement became hard, dry, ashen. The feces looked more like a fire had burned the food and left only the dry ash residue. Plus, it smelled! In addition her whole body seemed to have been acidified. For instance her breath smelled sulphuric, the tissue around her lips became discolored, and her eyes secreted thick dark mucus. In a local Petco store I noticed your Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Fish. I hadn't seen it before because not all stores carry it. I purchased a small bag of the kibble for small breeds. And hoped... My hopes were amply fulfilled! In just 3 servings all the signs of dietary distress were gone! Her eyes no longer secrete thick, dark mucus. The tissue around her lips is no longer red and inflamed. Her feces are round, moist, odor-free. In addition, she has 6 teeth, the others had to be extracted due to lack of dental care before she came to me. This means that the kibble must be moistened before serving. None--not one of the many brands we tried--could be softened in water, whether hot or cold. Also they were triangular in shape. All this means that every mouthful had sharp points which caused damage and pain to the gum tissue in her mouth. If they couldn't become moist after soaking for an hour in hot water how in the world could her stomach begin the digestion process on them? Obviously, viz-a-viz her condition, they were not being digested and absorbed. Ireina is a registered Service Therapy Dog and has joyfully returned to therapy service again now that her balance and wellbeing have been restored! Her many clients are so grateful for her presence with them and for her wellness! Thank you so much for this superlative product! Obviously much thought, care, and preparation went into its development. Wellbeing restored Gratefully, Carolyn & Ireina (Ireina means Queen of Peace)

Allergies Gone

My poor pound pup suffered immensely with seasonal allergies along with allergies he'd get from nosing around in certain places or swimming in certain bodies of water. It was awful, constant scratching and chewing and hot spots turning into broken skin when the seasonal allergies hit. He'd have to get steroid shots about 3 times a year when his skin would start bleeding but we were only treating the symptoms and compromising his overall health. Benadryl did nothing, Zyrtec made a small dent in between full breakouts. Then I got smart and started looking into his diet and saw that the first ingredient was chicken meal. Then I remembered that chicken meal is mostly feathers and everything else left over after it's been processed for everything else. So I researched dog foods that didn't have that ingredient - there weren't too many a few years ago. I stumbled across the LID line of Natural Balance and now Spencer is no longer struggling with allergies. No more meds either. Since I switched him over to LID Natural Balance he's never had to get another steroid shot, never had another hot spot, no more pink and swollen muzzle. And big bonus point for the city dwelling dog owner, the stool is compact, small, and not the most horrific smelling substance in existence. Obviously, his system doesn't have to work overtime processing the garbage in regular dog food out of the body. Life changing for us both! Many thanks!
