Rated 3 out of 5 by emilyspry Great quality food but my cats don't like it
Our little boy Huck was recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic complex, with a large eosinophilic granuloma in his mouth. He was also itchy and had runny poops. The thought process was an allergy. Trouble is, that allergy could be environmental or food. So, we decided to start with the food. Our vet suggested the select protein diet.(We want to avoid steroids because he's only a year old.) The idea is that he is reacting to a "common" protein and that feeding him one that he had not eaten before might solve the problem. Well, I bought the duck and pea. He ate it one time and now will not eat it at all. It has a thick sort of gummy consistency to it and I tried to mix it with a rabbit formula but he did not like that either. Lamb and venison are low on the like list too. And because we have 13 other "kids" I wanted to change everyone over to the same food, but only a few will eat these. So, this is my dilemma. I guess I'll keep trying and maybe eventually I'll find something that all of them like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PWhitewolf Great product, but now my cats won't touch it.
This is the second case I've order in two weeks (two different flavors). The cats used to like this food, and now they won't touch it. Under any circumstances. I'm going to try one more flavor (the salmon), as my cats loved that. Not sure if Natural Balance has changed ingredients, changed the recipes, or what, but I can't keep ordering this if the cats won't eat it. Hopefully, the cats at the local shelter will be a little less picky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by heavensent Price is good. Color isn't appealing (to me). It's a little dense so I add some water.
my 14 year old cat is eating it and there are no side affects like those from other foods she use to eat. She can't have fish, poultry, beef or corn. It works for her. She actually wants more. I'm happy she's happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alyse You want me to eat this?
This food is very bland and we don't particularly like the flavor. It is tolerable at best. Mom bought us this because it's healthy and had limited ingredients with high protein, but we will only eat it as a last resort when we are STARVING! I guess mom will just have to keep looking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnMDI 3 IBS cats love this
I happen to be lucky enough to end up with 3/4 cats with IBS. This food has been a huge deal at our house as it saves us SO much from feeding that many cats prescription, plus the great quality, and good flavors! I am fostering 5 kittens right now and they are all eating Natural Balance LID as well. Cans are good and sturdy so even if dinged, they are still safe to feed, different flavors allow diversity in diet despite being dietary limited. In addition to having IBS, my cats also have had simultaneously hyperthyroidism, cancer, diabetes etc. This food has worked great in every situation EVERY time. Would love to see some kitten and flavor alternatives, including possibly specialized such as a low glucose/ weight management option.

This product is so gentle to my cat's sensitive stomach. This is the only thing she is eating, while we are trying to flush out the allergies from her system. She had skin issues and they are slowly going away.
