Feeding Instructions

Weight of Adult Dog Daily Feeding
5 - 10 pounds 1/2 - 1 cup
10 - 20 pounds 1 - 1 1/2 cups
20 - 50 pounds 1 1/2 - 3 cups
50 - 100 pounds 3 - 5 1/4 cups
100 pounds and over 5 1/4 cups, plus 1/2 cup per every 10 pounds of body weight over 100 pounds

The amounts in the table are intended as guidelines only. The food intake should be adjusted according to the age, weight, breed, temperature, climate and activity level of your dog. Consult a veterinarian for specific weight recommendations.

Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diet Dry Dog Food, we suggest starting with the amounts recommended in the table. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog's needs.

For working dogs: Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. As the workload increases, the demand for protein and fat increases proportionally. Dogs in hard training will generally require twice the maintenance levels. For older dogs: As your dog begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for a less active dog.

Remember, fresh clean water should be available at all times!

Transition Instructions

When switching your dog's diet, the change should be made gradually by replacing the current food with increasing portions of Natural Balance® Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Dry Dog Food. The change should be completed after 5 to 7 days. The maintenance of proper body weight is most important for your dog's health. Consult your veterinarian for specific weight recommendations for your dog.

    Look, my border collie will scarf down whatever you put in front of her so although I'm sure she finds this incredibly delicious I can't recommend this food to an owner of a finicky dog because I'd be lying. What I can say is my girl has been on this for a year. She has a beautiful coat, perfect skin, and she has tons of energy! Ha! Plus, the ingredients speak for themselves-- I'm very happy with natural balance, I know a 17 year old dog who has been on this brand her entire life so I feel great about feeding Miss Ava this food :)

  • Great food!

    By on

    My mastiff was a very picky eater. Would only eat kibble when mixed with canned food. But I tried this food on the recommendation of a friend, and he dove right in and ate it dry when I was pouring it in the food bin. I was shocked. He loves it..he looks great, his coat is shiny, his stools are firm, and he doesn't have any skin problems! Highly recommend Natural Balance products for your dog!

  • Great kibble

    By on

    This is our dog's usual kibble. He loves the size of the kibble and I appreciate the recognizable ingredient list. The food was shipped free - arrived quickly and was cheaper than the store where I usually buy it. I would highly recommend this food and Chewy.com!

  • Great Dog Food

    By on

    I have had my two dogs on this food for more than a year now and they both do great on it. I switched to this because one dog has sensitivities to other foods. My vet prescribed a rx food which was expensive and full of weird ingredients. I switched to this instead and my dog with sensitivities has never looked or felt better.

  • Great Food

    By on

    We bought this to replace California Naturals dog food. Our GSD has a lot of stomach issues so I was very leary of trying this. After one day of transitioning her to this food she has done great. So far no stomach issues.

  • Great for sensitive stomach and even my picky dog eats it!

    By on

    My English Setter has a sensitive stomach and finding a food she likes that did not give her loose stool and too many BMs was tough! It took 6 tries with different foods before we tried Natural Balance LID Lamb Meal and Brown Rice. This food is wonderful for her sensitivities, doesn't cause soft stool (I think it is the rice as she tried the sweet potato and chicken my boxer eats and this was the winner)

  • Wonderful Food for Skin Allergies

    By on

    I used to use this food a long time ago for my Westie's many food allergies. I couldn't find it in town because local stores stopped selling it. I found it here on Chewy for a cheaper price and Ichabod's skin is starting to clear up again! I'll use Chewy from now on!

  • Great even for toy breeds

    By on

    I bought this food for my tiny dogs who have food sensitivities to chicken and other ingredients. It has totally solved their issues and even though this is not small bites, because the kibble is thin, my little ones have no trouble eating it. Tearing eyes and skin problems are all gone! This is one of the few foods I have found that claims to be lamb and does not also contain some chicken products in it. Since two of mine are extremely allergic to chicken, this was a perfect solution!

  • Dogs love it!

    My dogs love their Natural Balance dog food. I love that I can buy the same kind for both my puppy and adult dog. It is so much easier buying their food on chewy.com
