I really want to thank you, I purchased a german shepherd puppy 4 months ago and we had terrible problems with him from the 1st day we got him. He had constant mushy stool, we took him to 2 different vets, and after spending over $800 in medical bills someone suggested he might have food allergies to beef & chicken, and to try Natural Balance LID Sweet Potato & Fish. After a few days on being this dog food he had soft stool and after being on it for about 2 weeks he had formed stool.  I gave both my german shepherds this food, my older shepherd is 7 years old and my puppy is now 7 months old.  I feed them the LID Sweet Potato & Fish food and dog treats. Once again I really want to thank you for making this product and please don't ever stop making it.  You have made my dogs so happy.

You saved my poor Augie Dog, she had such dry skin she would scratch until she had no hair left and would sometimes bleed. She's a beautiful but challenged yellow lab that is my world. Starting her on Natural Balance saved her. I believe this year will be the best for her, no hair loss, no scratching, her coat is wonderful. All my dogs are now on Fish and Sweet Potato Formula and they love it. I know Augie is a boy's name, but I always wanted an Augie Doggy and she's it! Thank you so much.

My dog loves your fish and sweet potato kibble is wonderful to give him a different type of protein that works with his food allergies. Thank you very much!

She was covered in bare spots about 3 months ago. We went to our pet store and the salesman recommended we try Natural Balance Fish and Sweet Potatoes formula to help her skin and promote new hair growth. He felt as though her condition was being caused by allergic reactions to food containing Chicken and Gluten products. He recommended Natural Balance because of the variety of Limited Ingredient Diet products that were available. When we asked about a time frame to start seeing results he told us it generally would take 3 to 4 weeks. We were a bit skeptical because Baylee's skin condition was so bad at the time she looked like she had Mange. After only 1 week we began to see noticeable changes. After about 3 weeks almost all the bare spots were filled in and the redness and peeling skin on her belly was disappearing. We also noticed that the strong doggy odor went away as well. Also the redness and mucous buildup in her eyes cleared up. If someone told us that all this was caused by diet before witnessing the results We would not have believed them. It's been 4 months now that Our Baylee has been on her L.I.D. food and We can't begin to describe how Happy we are with the results. Your product is all it claims to be and then some.

I took in a rescue schnauzer that was so bad the shelter did not even recognize his breed. After shaving all of the matted hair and de-fleaing him, he looked like a skeleton with bright red skin. He continued itching until he made himself bleed. I spent hundreds, closer to a thousand, dollars on treating my yard and changed laundry detergents. I already had a registered schnauzer who has always been on a reputable dog food so I never thought it could be the food. The vet suggested shots, pills, etc. but nothing seemed to be working. Sometimes I would just cry over him because he was so miserable with his skin but so happy to have a home. I was telling his story at a meeting one day and a woman told me about your dog food and how it helped her dog’s allergy problems. So I went that day and bought a bag of it. His itching got better almost immediately, he began to gain weight and his hair turned from pure white to a beautiful silver and his skin from red to a healthy pink. I did try all of your allergy brands and through trial and error have found the Sweet Potato and Fish formula the best for him. By the way, my other little schnauzer is older but has lost weight and her muscle tone is back where it should be for a dog half her age and her doctor is extremely pleased! Thank you for itchless nights!!!!!

Just want to thank you for a fantastic product! We have a 10 year old American Staffordshire Terrier Mix. As recently as 2 months ago we believed that her days were numbered. She had lots of intestinal disturbances - severe bloating, decreased appetite, vomiting. On Easter Sunday we decided that she must be getting close. We took her in to her vet the following monday, planning on putting her to sleep. The vet suggested we try her on some new food first. I went to our local pet food warehouse and was suggested Natural Balance® Sweet Potato and Fish Formula. She has been on it now for several weeks and she is flourishing! She has no intestinal troubles at all. She now eats twice daily (before i was lucky if she ate 1 time every other day). Her weight is good. She is active, happy and loving her life. Oh yah, her tear stains are gone! Thank you so much for making our dogs golden years golden!


I just wanted to say thank you for making such an excellent dog food. In June of this year I adopted a pitbull / border collie mix named Zelda from a local rescue. We noticed an itchy spot on her belly but everyone was convinced that this was an area that was still healing from her spay surgery. By the time September rolled around Zelda healed up nicely except for the same itchy spot. She was scratching until she bled on a daily basis and our poor pup was completely miserable. We had quite a few expensive vet visits and did many rounds of tests, antibiotics, steroids, and antihistamines which helped but didn't completely solve the problem. It wasn't until Zelda and I took a trip to Petco for toys when the dog trainer on staff saw her scratching and began asking me very detailed questions about her food. He recommended your Fish and Sweet Potato formula and I walked out of the store thinking I'd give it a try because at this point I was out of ideas. That same night I mixed Zelda's old food with the Fish and Sweet Potato food to start the transition and had quite a good laugh when I looked at her bowl. Zelda rifled through every piece of kibble and left behind her old brand. When the next two weeks passed I was shocked at what a difference it made. Zelda was no longer waking me up at night with her scratching, the bleeding had stopped, the bruises began to lighten and the redness in her skin started to fade. Zelda was actually gaining weight and she didn't pick at her bowl any longer. Her mood began to change too, she was finally comfortable! We're now on week 6 with Natural Balance and I can't tell you how impressed I am with her condition. Her coat is so soft and blooming with shine that strangers stop us at the dog park ask me what I bathe her with. I happily correct their assumption and give all the credit to Natural Balance. Even my vet is completely stunned by her transformation. When I adopted Zelda I made a commitment to give her the best quality of life possible. Because of the knowledgeable staff at Petco and your amazing product I can keep that promise. Thank you and keep up the good work!


Hi: Just wanted to share this in case you have the same issue with your fur babies. For almost 1 year Bailey my 4 year old boy had soft stools. We did all kinds of feces test but everything was fine. The vet would give us the medicine and his stool would be hard til we ran out and then back to being soft again. Finally I started doi g some research on the Internet and came across the reviews on Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diet Sweet Potato And Fish for Small Breed. I was so desperate because everyti e for 1 year or so poor Bailey always looked miserable eveytme he was going to the bathroom. After reading all the positive reviews I realized the Bailey had sensitive stomach and I should changehis food. I was feeding him Wellness Small Breed. It is still a great food for not for Bailey. I'm happy to report within a few days of trying out this new food Bailey's poop is hard solid. I could p'nt believe it would work but it did. He also gets boiled chicken breast with every meal it :)

Hi. I have a 6-year old black lab named Keifer. My daughter and I were his volunteer puppy raisers for Guide Dogs for the Blind (out of CA). Throughout his puppyhood, we struggled with recurring intestinal problems/diarrhea with Keifer. After he was career changed from GDB, he came back to us. After seeing continued intestinal upsets, my vet suggested your food - Natural Balance® Potato and Duck Formula! What a miraculous change! Then, just recently, he showed signs of developing an intolerance to the duck protein so I switched him to the Sweet Potato & Fish. Another miraculous change! Thanks. A side note - Keifer has been an invaluable therapy dog with me since returning to our home. For 3+ years we have spent nearly every weekend at a local drug & alcohol rehab center. Keifer is the STAR volunteer and loved by all.
