Rated 5 out of 5 by Dobiegirl32 Sensitive Skinned Dobbie Gives This An A+
Our sensitive skinned, allergy prone, ex-demodex mange, 8 year old fawn Doberman Pinscher, Monty, has never had a pretty or shiny coat. It was patchy at best. He has been thru countless steroid shots, countless vet visits, several mange dips, antihistamines, etc, etc. After finally getting to a point in our careers where we could afford a more quality food for him, we tried several high end foods to no avail and finally (with assistance from our vet) determined that he also has a chicken sensitivity. After much research, we decided to give Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Fish a try. It's been about 4 months now, and for the first time in forever, his coat looks AMAZING! He actually is shedding a little. Which is awesome because he never used to have enough hair to shed. Thank you so much Natural Balance for catering to pups with severe skin issues. Also, thanks to Chewy for their awesome selection, great prices, fast shipping and great customer service!

I would recommend this food to anyone that has a allergy related problem child (dog) in the family. My AmStaff has skin issues as many pittys do and it has helped immensely to eliminate grain from his diet. The food is costly but when you take into consideration the cost of alternative medication to help control the allergy it's worth it in the long run. After years of treatment and extremely high veterinarian bills I've finally got Cooper's skin/ear infections under control. He is on allergy shots but in combination of grain free food he is in the best shape he has ever been in. I highly recommend Natural balance grain free food. I also recommend Mr. Chewy, they have the greatest service and friendly employees. I work at the Cornell Veterinary Hospital and get a discount on dog food which is a pain to get and the cost is the same with my discount as it is from Mr. Chewy but I have the convenience of having it delivered right to my door, often the next day, Amazing! Great job folks and thanks so much for all you do for our furry family members.

This is the same dog food I've been buying for years, but at a much better price. I was happy with the 2 day delivery service as promised and will be ordering again when I need food and other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CO22 Best for our dog's sensitive system
We started using Blue Buffalo with our golden retriever (it was promoted heavily in the pet store). After a couple years or so her system couldn't handle it anymore. It was too rich. She was pooping by the back door some nights. (Awesome) After a couple visits to the vet ($) we determined that it was her food. I don't think we've had an issue with the Natural Balance sweet potato & fish formula food in the 5 years we've been using it. We've tried changing the flavor about 5 times (periodically, just to mix it up a bit and make food more interesting for our dog) and had the issue return once, so, we only use the sweet potato & fish flavor now. It works, so why try anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SydMaxBax Love all of these products!
About 6 years ago, my cat was diagnosed with IBS. He went from eating well to vomiting several times a day to refusing to eat all together. I tried the prescription diet Hills ZD which was recommended by my veterinarian, however even with my discount (I work there) it was more than i could afford to pay since I was actually feeding two cats. I talked to my veterinarian and he suggested a single protein source, obscure protein, grain free and gluten free diet. I found the Green Pea and Duck formula, and it worked.
Fast forward a couple of years, my Great Dane Sydney began having problems with her food. I had been feeding her Eagle Pack, but she developed IBD as well. Several bouts of vomiting, lose stools, and just not feeling as well, i knew just what to do. I went to the Sweet Potato and Venison. It was amazing the difference it made. I tried the Bison too. She was doing great. I had noticed the last couple months (she's almost 6) her skin is flaky and she is breaking out some . Its not horrible but she's not as happy. I decided to try the fish since I know fish is not only good for skin, but the fish oils are good for joint support. Her and my other dog took to the fish without any problems. Her skin is already looking better, her coat is shiny, and she is getting the joint health benefits as well.
I have yet to try ordering from chewy.com but that is my next step. The convenience of having the food delivered will help a lot. I go through a 26# bag of food every 2 weeks with these two dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolr so far so good, seems to be working my pup with lots of allergies is doing good on the Sweet Potato and fish formula
I had been buying Castor and Pollux which worked really well for my 8 year old dog with lots of allergies and tons of vet visits. I was unable to continue because of the cost and my vet recommended "Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient " since I knew my pup liked fish I picked this one, also the Dr. recommended a fish diet as apposed to other proteins. He has been eating for over a week and no breakouts. When he was eating poor food he became raw on his belly, got sores all over his body which were extremely itchy, he smelled like yeast and he was constantly shaking his ears. Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient is much more affordable. The service and delivery was great and free delivery is a plus.
