Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Venison & Green Pea Formula Canned Cat Food
Cat responding well with this food
One day, our two year old cat started to develop itchy bumps on back and face. We'd been feeding him popular brand of wet food. Both our cat-expert friend and our vet suggested he might be reacting to allergy of some kind (food, environment, other). We started with changing his food gradually (over several weeks) to this product. We had to make our transition very gradual as he had started to throw up the food at first - the vet explained this is very rich content with few fillers, so his system would take time to acclimate. Had no more throwing up after we made the amounts more modest. Now about two months later, his skin is clearing up well with a few more bumps to resolve.
The vet had recommended prescription food, but after looking on-line and being totally uncertain what was really prescription versus just called prescription, I wasn't sure what to get. Our cat-expert friend read the ingredient labels for both and offered that this and prescription were essentially the same, that this might actually be better and less expensive.
We will keep on this track unless there are further developments.

This product serves its purpose.
I had to start feeding one of my cats limited ingredient food because of IBD. The consistency of the food seems kind of sticky, but Barney and my other cats do eat it and seem to like it ok. I guess the consistency bothers me more than it does them. I am getting the desired results with less diarrhea and gas for Barney. I would recommend it for anyone who needs to feed their cats limited ingredient foods. And it's cheaper than the prescription ones.

I had to change my cats' diet because one had developed constant diarrhea and the other was puking all the time. The vet suggested a "novel diet" and the only food I had never given them was venison. I found Natural Balance had one of the few venison foods without a lot of additives. The cats love it and both problems were eliminated in just days!

Good for novel-protein diets
My cat has IBD, and he's a picky little jerk. This stuff is okayed by his doctor for the novel-protein diet to control his symptoms, and it's easy on his stomach. It's also the cheapest canned venison I can find. He loves the taste, too, as long as I put it in the rotation with all his other flavors (ugh, he's such a diva).

Smooth and Delicious
Due to heroic surgery, one of my kitties needs a perfectly smooth, free of any bits, food. This is the winner in consistency and taste. I am most impressed in the ingredients and most highly recommend this food.

GREAT PRODUCT. GREAT FAST SERVICE.
I adopted a kitty cat who'd had two previous homes. When I got her she was eating the cheapest dry food you can buy and refused to eat wet food. I kept upgrading her dry food and every so often would try another wet cat food but she refused every time. Then some friends of mine told me about Natural Balance but it has to be Venison and Peas. I said she won't eat it but they insisted and gave me three cans, and low and behold my kitty gobbled it up. I couldn't believe it. So now this is what she eats topped with greens and some olive oil. The delivery from chewy.com was very fast. Thank you.

Food has cured my cat!
My cat diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease was vomiting chronically. Vet recommended a prescription diet that none of my cats would eat. I found Natural Balance & tried it because it is a novel protein(a protein most cats haven't been exposed to, I choose the venison ) my cats love it and the vomiting has stopped for over a month now. They also love the duck dried food. My cat has regained the weight she lost & I feel great about giving her food that doesn't have junk & extra ingredients in it. A win win for us all!Plus delivery to my door in less than 48 hrs, I am thrilled!

This product is purrrfect for my cat.
Of all the Limited Ingredient Diets this one works the best for my girl. Low in fat, yet palatable. My cat has Irritable Bowel Syndrome and everything runs through her like water. This formula slows down her G.I. tract and allows her to absorb the nutrients she so desperately needs.
