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!Megan W
