Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Salmon & Green Pea Formula Canned Cat Food
I have a very picky cat, but it's my fault
It's been too long since I've owned a cat. I had no idea how down hill cat food had gone. I mistakenly didn't read the ingredients of the first food I bought for him and I found out later, after he started having skin allergies and chin acne, that his food was loaded with fillers and tons of SUGAR hence the allergies/acne. For heaven sake I could never have imagined...sugar in cat food? So now I have a kitten addicted to sugar. I decided on Natural Balance L.I.D. above what my vet recommended. I did my own research and I saw that NB has everything my kitty needs, and it is also very reasonably priced. I ruined my little kitten with sugar and now am trying hard to slowly introduce NB. It is working, but it's been a trying time for both of us. He likes the NB LID Salmon the best so far. I've purchased all the other flavors too, dry and wet. So far I can only get him to eat the salmon, but it's my fault because I got him addicted to sugar. I'm sure over time I can ween him off completely. I feel good that I am now feeding my kitty a healthy diet. In fact, one of the healthiest out there, per my own personal research. Thank you NB! I hope to be able to leave an update later on when he is completely on NB LID only.

My cats LOVE this food
I have 5 cats and all of them love this canned food. Can only speak for the salmon flavor. Have not tried the others yet. Highly recommend.

Fish that's actually good for cats
We have several elderly cats who are in various stages of kidney failure due to their age. They have all been eating the Natural Balance limited ingredient diets for more than 5 years now, and are all doing great. Our other cats liked it so much, we feed it to all of them, too. Thank you, Natural Balance, for making a non-veterinary L.I.D. that cats WANT to eat!

Very good if you suspect pet allergies.
I have a 3 month old kitten that developed major health issues. The vet recommended I feed him chicken baby food for humans. This made him lose even more weight, and become very itchy. Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Green Pea & Salmon Canned Cat Food mixed with kitten infant formula for the extra vitamins has made him playful again. He is regaining weight finally and looks better than he has in weeks.
The only negative is he seems to have difficulty with the tiny bones. It would be nice if these could be crushed finer.

Think the Salmon & Green Pea recipe is off.
All three of my cats loved the Salmon & Green Pea Formula, except the most recent production batch in Spring 2014. This flavor was out of stock for a few months in early 2014. I was so happy when the Salmon & Green Pea came back in stock with Chewy that I ordered two cases in mid-April 2014 so we would have enough for a few months, but my cats will not touch these cans. Of these two cases, I have tried 5-6 cans intermittently over the past 2.5 months and they still refuse to to eat any of the cans in this batch. I do recall the prior cans were moister and lighter in color. I agree with the other two April 2014 reviews about the consistency being just too dry and an issue of quality control. Sadly, my most finicky Princess and underweight cat loved this flavor the first time around, and I could be assured that she would eat this if all other choices failed. Now, I am back on the hunt for her fail-safe choice. I, too, will donate the unused cans to rescue as I hate to waste any more cans.
