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 pregnant females: A minimal increase is needed during the first 6 weeks. Increase the amount fed up to 25% during weeks 7, 8, and 9. For lactating females: Immediately after whelping, the nutritional demand increases by 50% compared to maintenance levels. Feed in 3 equal meals per day. 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® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Sweet Potato & Venison 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.

Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 634.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for us--and we don't need a prescription One of my dogs has food sensitivities, and Natural Balance has helped her to have normally formed poops. It is significantly less expensive than than prescription limited ingredient diet formulas and we appreciate not having the hassle of needing a prescription to purchase it. I am aware that many of the prescription foods have a higher percentage of venison protein and eliminate the use of pea protein (which a vet shared can be an allergen for some dogs) but if your budget makes the cost of a prescription diet a hardship, this food might be a good choice for you. All my personal dogs, and the foster dogs that have stayed with us have eaten this food without any aversion. None have smelled like cat urine as a few people have indicated. I should note that I do mix Natural Balance Venison with Fromm 4 Star Duck. There was an occasion where I had run low on Natural Balance and I was giving mostly Fromm, Tulip (my pup with a sensitive tummy) started having looser poops until we got our next order of Natural Balance. Also, similar to the kibble being darker than that of other foods I have fed, my dogs' poops get darker when they eat Natural Balance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 from Love it When I rescued my dog, he was really sick, and had a lot of allergies.... Later after treatment I changed his nutrition. As soon as I bought him Natural Balance his skin rashes disappeared. I didn't know much about the Dog nutrition until I started working for 3 different Pet Stores.. This one is so far the best recommended one! Is limited ingredient which makes it great since you wont be having added fat from other meats like chicken/ no good.. Also, its Grain Free ! No corn ! I love it! I don't longer work for Pet Stores so I don't get a discount, but I save a lot from going to a Veterinarian! My dog is healthy <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is great for dogs who have severe allergies and sensitive stomaches My dog was diagnosed two years ago with severe allergies. We have tried for years to figure out why he suffered from constant ear infections, hot spots, and unexplained belly rashes. We took him to several specialists who put him on a never ending string of antibiotics and steroids. Nothing worked and we were frustrated. Finally we changed our regular vet. Our new vet is great and knew as soon as she saw him what his problem was. She asked if we had ever had him tested for allergies and recommended we start him on Natural Balance venison and sweet potato right away. We went straight to the pet store and purchased our first bag. Within a week his ears cleared up and his hot spots were gone! We tell everyone we know about this amazing product. I have since become disabled and the trip to the pet store (the closest pet store that carries this brand is a 45 minute drive from us) became impossible. Luckily, we discovered Mr. Chewy online and now we get his food and treats delivered right to our door!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 from Dog Loves It My dog has had multiple allergy issues and been to the vet several times and nothing helped until I took him off everything else and started feeding him this. He loves it and has stopped itching so I love it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for dogs with allergies My Bischon has serious skin allergies, and we have tried many, many different types of food to try to get the allergies under control. This produce has helped him the most. Someone from your company stated that beef could be the cause of some of the allergies, so we tried this and are pleased with it. thank you for being there for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for dogs with food allergies My pit has developed more and more food allergies as she gets older- which in past years meant switching around her dog food. Looking at the ingredients for this though- she shouldn't have to switch again! The limited ingredients really matches her specific needs perfectly!
