Rated 5 out of 5 by sjhyde77 This food literally SAVED my dog's life!!
My 14 yr old yorkie has HGE, or hemorrhagic gastro enteritis. She has had to do overnight stays at the vet on several occasions and ended with antibiotics, fluids, and a hefty vet bill. We were contemplating having to put her down, as she was soo sick, and seemed miserable. It was suggested the cause may be a food allergy, so I tried your product. She hasn't had ANY HGE symptoms since!!! No infections, fever, bloody stools, etc.!! You literally saved my dog!!! Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by yorkiepowered Perfect and affordable diet.
My rescue Yorkies have all 3 been seriously ill from food allergies after eating "quality" pet foods recommended by their vet. They came very close to death. I researched their medical problems and realized the FOOD was what caused their Pancreatitis and Inflamatory Bowel flare-ups. I put them on Natural Balance Duck and Potato and they are healthy again and very active. Their medical treatment was over $3K ea. And there is no way to describe the heartache of watching them suffer. Their coats are shiny and eyes bright again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SneakyBurrito entices reluctant dogs to eat
My Rottweiler has been eating the Natural Balance Duck and Potato kibble for awhile due to sensitive stomach issues. However, she recently had a bout of inappetence. After $50 spent at the vet, it was determined that she was not dehydrated, did not have a viral or bacterial infection, and had not swallowed a foreign object.
While I know it is OK for a dog to go without food for a day, having lost several pets to illness last year (one chronic and one sudden), I was hyper-concerned. One of my first ideas to get my dog to eat was to try mixing in some of the wet version of the dry food she'd been eating. I figured the smell would entice her, and I've generally had good luck with products from this particular line.
In fact, this wet food was exactly what I was looking for. It got my dog eating again in no time. I feed her twice a day. At the end of the day, she's had a total of 1 can + 3 cups of kibble, which is the amount prescribed on the can for an 80-pound dog (she's now 95 pounds but a bit overweight, so I'm keeping her food level at the 80-pound recommendation). The food doesn't coat the kibble, but you can sort of embed the kibble in the wet food.
There is a strong "smoked" smell to the food. As a vegetarian, this smell is not particularly appealing to me, but the important thing is not what I think, but what the dog thinks, and she loves it. Even though my dog has been on kibble her whole life until recently, this food was gentle on her stomach. Her elimination is, if anything, improved -- firmer stools, etc.
Please note, these cans do not have pull tabs so you will need a can opener to get them open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PetMom Great food at a reasonable price!
This is one of my emergency foods that I keep in the pantry. It is a great food for the poodles especially when their bellies are bothered.
The price is extremely reasonable as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbird GREAT ALLERGY ALTERNATIVE!!!!!
My little rescue yorkie has as many inside as outside
allergies. This food is far superior to the Vet food
they suggested. The company runs extensive control
to assure quality and safety.
I had a dog that was on GOOD food that was recalled
with her heart condition it almost did her in.
I now do research on everything I buy for her.
Mr. Chewy is a life saver, I am unable to lift heavy loads, so tha to my door delivery is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SexyPomsMommy Great for sensative tummies!
My Pomeranians (ages 5-10 yrs) have always been fed premium foods. They had never had any major health issues until about 6 months ago. They "ALL" became very ill with runny poops & tummy troubles. .I spent many dollars on blood & stool tests & trips to 3 vets...when at last vet#3 told me....your food is too rich for them. (always get a 2nd or 3rd opinion when a vet doesn't give you the answers you need). Vet #3 was spot-on. I started changing diets & eliminating certain ingredients per his instruction & my own research. It took some time to find Natural Balance LID....and now we are loyal customers. All of my dogs love the Duck formula & are now doing great. No more GI issues! The price with Chewy is also good & saves money. Thanks for this great food!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skeeter17 Healthy and a BIG hit with our elderly dog.
Our 17 year old Pomeranian was on a prescription food with the varieties of duck, venison and salmon. She would only eat the duck which is no longer available. We found this product, which was very similar to the prescription food, and she loves it. Good for both our pet and for our budget as this is considerably less expensive. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by doggie37 not a favorite
she's not thrilled with this meal, and it is kind of gritty with no tempting aroma.
