L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Sweet Potato & Venison Dry Dog Formula Testimonials

Submit a Testimonial

Star's a rescue dog and when I got her she was covered in hotspots and her skin was black and inflamed, pealing, cracking, and dry. Every time I tried a new food, she got way more hotspots. I did some research and found your Sweet potato & Venison L.I.D formula. Her hotspots started to go away, and she didn't get anymore of them! She had very dry cracking skin, no energy, and ribs were showing when I got her. She is now soo full of energy, loves her food(would eat the whole bag if I let her) has NO ribs or other bones showing(at a healthy weight) and has NO hot spots, inflammation, itchy, cracking, or dry skin anymore. Her coat is beautiful and her skin is soft and doesn't bother her constantly anymore! Thank you for giving her the energy she needs and deserves. Now I can barely keep up with her, and that's how it should be!!(She's almost 3)

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!

Awesome Food

I have a 15 year old Dachshund that had dental surgery. Because of the anesthesia given to him, he developed a very sensitive stomach, along with some other issues such as his balance when trying to walk. I was giving him a high quality dog food for years, which worked wonders for him. However, this food started giving him very bad gas. So, I asked my Veterinarian if there's another good quality dry food to give him and he recommended Natural Balance. My dog has been eating this food for almost 2 months now and his stomach is so much better and he has hardly any gas. I highly recommend this food for any pet that has a sensitive stomach. I'm very happy with this food and so is my little 15 yr. old boy.

Bailey's Transformation

I adopted Bailey 7 years ago. Soon after I adopted him from a local shelter he became very large & very sickly. He has rheumatoid arthritis & developed skin allergies that left him with boils and open sores on his body. This poor dog was so lethargic & miserable, I tried all types of meds, pills & ointments with no success. About 8 mths ago my regular vet was not in & we saw another veterinarian in the practice. This Doctor suggested we change his food to Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets. We decided to go with Sweet Potato & Venison formula. Shortly thereafter Bailey's skin started improving tremendously. His walking (gait) improved after that. Soon his overall mood seemed to improve, he had more energy, he was alive! He became a very happy dog and I am one happy dog owner! I recently met my cousin for a walk with our dogs, I hadn't seen him all winter, he was blown away by Bailey's appearance & personality change. He was unaware I had switched Bailey's food & I told him that is the reason for Baileys transformation. I can't thank you enough for making such a quality product. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! I have three dogs & they are all on your food!

Frank's Food for Life

Thank you Natural Balance, for this quality product. Frank is my 19 month old German Shepherd Dog. He came to live with me when he was 14 weeks, and I tried a number of different foods, only to have each one cause his stomach to be upset. It was then recommended to me, by my local pet store, to try Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison. That was over a year ago now, and he has had no digestive issues since then. And also, he loves this food. Everywhere we go, folks comment on how beautiful his "coat" is. Thanks, Natural Balance, for your commitment to help us pet owners keep our pets healthy inside and out!

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!

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.
