Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Fish Formula Dry Dog Food
Great for my GSD who's allergic to EVERYTHING!!!
FINALLY! A food I can feed my 2 yr old, 110 lb. German Shepherd Dog who is allergic to EVERYTHING! I've always had GSD's so I'm aware of their sensitivity to foods and potential for GI upset. However, my boy set the bar for food allergies! Chicken, chicken-meal, corn, grains, gluten, soy, eggs, dairy, PEAS (SERIOUSLY, PEAS!), and pea-protein! He's also unable to easily digest certain proteins such as beef and bison. I thought I was never going to find anything to feed him without going to a raw diet! This is the ONLY food I have found that does NOT contain any of the above ingredients including peas or pea-protein AND it comes in Salmon & Sweet Potato, i.e. digestible! He has been on this food for a month now and, so far, his stool is FINALLY firm, no more itching, hair loss, antibiotics, steroids, or vet trips!!! Best of all, he LUVS this food! His coat is gorgeous, his weight is perfect, and he drools in anticipation of EVERY feeding. You can set your alarm clock for 6am feeding (even on the weekends!) I highly recommend this LID food for anyone whose pet needs a restricted diet without losing nutritional value or requiring a veterinarian's prescription!

Perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies!
I tried different premium foods for my puppy. Since we brought her home at 9 weeks old I gave her a grain-free diet, which seemed to work well. When she was about 4 months old I began to notice some skin issues which the vet said could be food allergy related. I had just switched to a different grain-free food so I wondered if the switch was the problem. However, even going back to the old food we had the same issues. Then she began having more issues with loose stools (which coincided with upping her food levels as she was growing so fast!).
After looking around online at different reviews, I decided to give Natural Balance a try in the fish & sweet potato flavor. I read that fish is an easier protein to break down than chicken or beef, and can be much easier on a sensitive dog's stomach. She had a NORMAL stool after only one feeding of this food! I am SO happy for Natural Balance and love that it's still grain-free.
If you have a dog who you suspect has a sensitive stomach, is having loose stools or hair and skin issues, don't hesitate to give this food a try. It's been a life-saver for us and I know our dog is a much happer girl!

After using the no grain diet for about three months, our Labrador is now free of ear infections. She is eight years old and finally we can say she is free of smelly, yucky ears.

This food works great for dogs with allergies.
This is one of the foods that Natural Balance did not add Pea products to. Therefore, it works great for dogs that have allergies.

This product has made life SO much easier...
One of my dogs, Noodle, has had loose stools since I got him. We tried several different quality foods for him. None of them helped. I decided to try "NATURAL BALANCE Sweet Potato and Fish ". This is a Limited Ingredient Diet. It has worked wonders. His stool is nice and firm, so easy to pick up! He is two years old now, and will be eating this food for the rest of his life!!! Thank you NATURAL BALANCE!

great for itchy dogs
I rescued an itchy dog. She was on a variety of meds including allergy pills but still chewed herself raw. She now uses allergy pills and this food. She no longer requires a collar around her neck and she is definitely less itchy. I also use the can dog food. I fill a hollow white bone, freeze it and she loves it. I now have a happy dog. It took about a month to see results. This food is definitely worth the money!

Our dog is allergic to EVERYTHING and will lick and scratch herself bloody when she eats anything but grain free with no animal byproducts, soy, dairy etc...
She liked this product immediately and it has helped to control her allergy.

2 out of 3 good results
Purchased the salmon/sweet potato grain free product, as I have 3 Labs 2 of whom have allergies. I began to introduce the product slowly but one of my labs vomited each time I tried to reintroduce it to him. He will remain on his current food and the hopefully, the other lab will have reduced ear infections this coming season.
