Natural Balance Vegetarian Formula Dry Dog Food
As a life-long dog owner, this is the dog food that has worked best after many years of searching for the perfect food. Vegan means that there are no animal products in the food, thus it's a cruelty-free food. I am not supporting meat factories in any way, not adding to any other animals agony. Best of all this is an excellent high quality fully balanced food that my dogs love (4 Chihuahuas, 1 Cairn, 1 yellow lab). It's a complete and healthy meal, nutritionally balanced. I plan to use this dog food for as long as I have dogs, which will be for a very long time.

life saving dog food
I rescued my dog from the humane society. He moaned and vomited frequently so a trip to the vet for blood tests revealed a bad liver panel and a sad prognosis. His liver was too small for his body.
Instead of putting him to sleep (as suggested), I wanted him to try a strict vegan diet first. Eight weeks later his liver panels were perfect, he stopped moaning and vomiting. I tried every other vegan dog food brand, but he wouldn't eat them or he'd get sick. Now, six years later he's still in perfect health and has never refused to eat this stuff everyday...truly amazing! My Vet thinks I'm a genius, but Natural Balance deserves ALL the credit and I'm just happy I stayed awake during my boring nutrition courses in college. I should note I'm not vegan or vegetarian and never ever go vegan with cats.

My dog loves it and is very healthy
My dog loves his food and I love knowing he's healthier. It seems like he's getting all the important nutrient he needs without unneeded byproducts that could cause long term problems. I don't see any disadvantages to this at all so far and will continue to use this. I wish more companies had Vegetarian options.

Best food for bulldogs!
My 12 year old English Bulldog is wheat and animal protein sensitive. After transitioning him to a vegetarian diet a few years ago with Natural Balance wet and dry foods, his health has improved and he loves his food! He is thriving and numerous friends and veterinarians comment that he is an extremely healthy and good-looking bulldog for his age. His teeth are looking good even though he does have some wet food daily. . .Digestion is great with the vegetarian formula because it is very easy on tummies.

Love this food!
One of my dogs had severe allergies and were never able to quite get them under control until we got her on this food. She loves it and her skin and ear problems have disappeared!
This food also has all the supplements vegetarian dogs need (L-Carnatine and Taurine) which other vegetarian formulas do not have!
I have since switched all 6 of my dogs to this food and they are all thriving on it.

Faith Love this Stuff
Faith is a big lovable German Shepherd with allergies, she was always scratching herself before we found this Vegetarian product. Now she is a happy non-scratching dog and seems to love her food.

It is an excellent food for dogs who have allergies to meat products
My senior rescue dogs do very well on this food...some were tested and had too much protein in their urine because of their advanced age.. From small to large dogs do well ..I do add a little natural Ballance or Numans Own organic canned food into the Kibble food , just to make it more interesting to smell for them..the eye staining seems to be going away on the white pups too. Their stools are great and they can't wait till 5pm comes around..their protein has also gone down in their urine and they have lost a little weight also , which is good for Seniors. Love this food ..

Best veggie formula on the market!
This is the only vegetarian formula that I have used that does not cause any break outs. My nine year old Weimeriner is alergic to animal protin, soy and wheat, so we have tried every vegetarian formula on the market and this is the best. The dogs love it, they look great and have tons of energy.
