Rated 1 out of 5 by Andrew Worst Food Yet
I always try to get a LID dry food for my two pups because my 5 y.o. pit has the worst allergies ever and my 2 y.o. Boston will eat anything. We had been on the Natural Balance Rabbit for nearly a year with no problems before Chewy stopped carrying it (and I guess it was discontinued).
At first our switch didn't seem to bring any issues except picky eating - which is weird but I figured they'd get used to it (which they did). Their stool had gotten softer but I figured it was stress since we introduced a newborn to our little family and my mother in law has been visiting long term to help. So after a finishing the first bag I got two more.
Bad mistake! The dogs by now are very accustomed to my daughter and mom in law and still have softer stool and upset stomachs (bad enough that my big dog will poop the floor in the middle of the night). I'm going to have to give away the bag and a half or so I have left and find a new kibble ASAP.
Thanks Natural Balance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Granny13 Best limited diet available for my sick friend
My 10 yr/old Cocker Spaniel was diagnosed with pancreatitis in May 2016 her blood tests were dangerously high. My vet prescribed a low fat diet. He wanted to use prescription diet commercially made.
This was a problem because all of them use chicken as the protein source and my friend is allergic to chicken..
I found this diet and she has been on it several months and is doing very well on it. Her enzymes are improving. I plan to continue it as her permanent diet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chick Our Dogs Started Smelling Like Cat Urine
After about a month on Natural Balance Venison & Sweet Potato L.I.D. (kibble and wet) our dogs started smelling like cat urine.
Our poor dogs! We thought we had a neighborhood cat problem and our dogs were somehow rolling in it when we'd let them out. They got many baths over a 2 month time span.
Eventually came across something online when researching the trouble and that said their dog started smelling like cat urine, too.
We're not feeding Natural Balance anymore, so I can't say it's limited to the Venison formula...but our dogs don't smell like pee anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McKab Great for Food Allergies
My 3 year old male Siberian Husky was getting horrible, itchy scabs on his ears and after a million tests at the vet, it was determined he had a food allergy. I had him on an expensive RX food but after awhile it was just getting to be too much money, so I switched him to this, which is half the price. He loves it! It was an easy switch from the RX food to Natural Balance Potato and Venison and there have been no intestinal issues. I also switched my female Husky to this and she's very happy. Their coats are beautiful and they happily gobble it up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kalie Adored by the dog - Just wish it was higher protein
"Your dog may have food allergies." These are not fun words to hear. And then you realize that, through a lack of knowledge NOT to, you've already exposed your dog to a lot of 'novel' proteins. So Venison and Sweet Potato it is!
She loves this food. We thought our dog was not food motivated, at all. She barely would work for training treats, and certainly not for kibble. Our dog must be a millennial because she loves, loves, loves this starchy food and sweet potato training treats.
Her shedding has decreased dramatically. She eats all her food voraciously where as we had to hand feed half her bowl previously. She will work for kibble in the morning. Her stool is much easier to pick up. Much less potent doggy farts, too.
I do NOT like the macro nutrients on this food as much as her previous food. I wish it were a bit higher protein content. However, I can't argue with the fur not falling out and the obvious signs that her digestive system is happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue11 This Food Really Does Keep A Natual Balance
Since I switched to this food, no more digestive upsets for my dog. So important because digestive upsets for him, mean sleepless nights for us. He really seems to like it as well. I am staying with this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brad Love Chewy.com!!!
I saw the Chewy.com ad on TV and thought I would take a look at their products and prices. One of the best things I've ever done concerning pet products! They had the product I needed at a very reasonable price! Also, the option to have the order sent out automatically at my specified time request was great! My dog finishes a bag in almost exactly the same timeframe; the prearranged order saves me time and travel. Thanks, Chewy.com! You really simplified this aspect of my life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie Great grain free dog food
This grain free dog food has venison, a meat that is easy for dogs to digest and is something they would eat in the wild. It also has sweet potato, an ingredient that aids in healthy digestion. My dog loves it mixed with grain free chicken soft food!
