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.

  • My dog approves of this too!

    By on

    This review is in conjunction with my review on the NB lamb meal & brown rice formula. I have a very finicky & digestively sensitive female GSD & we've tried a handful of highly recommended dry dog food brands in the past with which she has either turned her nose up @ or doesn't do well digestively on. This particular brand & formula used in conjunction with the other mentioned above has been a consistent favorite of hers & the only food that she is thriving & is healthy on. We highly recommend this & will continue to have it conveniently delivered to us from Chewy!

  • Our favorite dry brand by far

    By on

    So pleased with this brand!!! Our hound/rhodesian ridgeback mix was plagued with ear infection after ear infection. After switching him to this dry food (and all other limited ingredient wet food and treats ) he has had a complete turnaround! I was worried he wouldn't like it but he gobbled it up the very first day and has ever since! He does of course enjoy it most mixed with a wet limited ingredient but will absolutely eat it dry. An absolute life saver!!

  • For the love of Bentley

    By on

    We moved to another state and Bentley (our Sheltie), was not happy. He didn't like the weather, the grass was different, the trees, the bushes, everything. His health and spirit changed, and he gained weight. His Vet recommended this brand and formula of food. It's amazing the change it has made, he's back to being energetic and happy. I strongly believe the food has made all the difference, because we have not made any other changes.

  • So easy to set up order

    By on

    My two Siberian Huskies have been on the same food for several years now and I have tried other auto-ship functions from other companies. Those other companies would either mess up my order or take 4-5 days to send me my food (after they advertise 2 day shipping). Chewy by far has kept their word when it comes to two day shipping and their prices are better than the competition. Thank you Chewy for making the autoship process simple and quick!

  • My dogs love it

    By on

    I have fed this to my dogs for over 8 years. My vet says that their teeth are in great shape for never having had dentals. My oldest (we have only had her two years) is doing very well. You wouldn't know that she was 10 +. She chases around outside with the other dogs like a pup. She is stiff in the morning but so am I. I highly recommend Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Venison dry dog food.

  • outstanding

    By on

    My only regret is that it took so long to find your company. Everything has been outstanding. You shipped quick made sure i got what i wanted and checked up on it after. All companies should run this well. I am very satisfied and will recommend you company to everyone who has pets. I wish you shipped chicken food than i would not have to go get that. thanks a lot

  • For picky eaters

    By on

    Started my 60-70 lbs boxers on this a little while ago because we were having allergy issues with one of them. Haven't had any issues and they love it. We used to have issues with them not eating because they didn't like the taste I guess. So far so good!

  • Cleared up allergies but new formula is a question mark

    By on

    My golden retriever had allergies that manifested in her skin and ears since she was a puppy. I'm not sure what protein she is allergic to, but once we switched to LID sweet potato & venison for all food and treats, it cleared up within a couple months. She has LOVED this food unlike any other - drooling all over the place while she waits for the "OK" to eat. Unfortunately, the past 2 bags have been a different formula - the kibble is lighter in color and smells different. She is still eating it, but doesn't go for it like she used to. I hope it continue to work for us. Time will tell.

  • Best Poop Ever

    By on

    This food makes yard clean-up a pleasure. My dog's poop is firm and dry and a very dark, chocolatey brown. It's so easy to spot! My dog seems to like the taste (of his food) and this formula works well with reducing yeast in his system, so his hot spots have diminished. With autoship, the price is amazing! Highly recommended!

  • What a difference!

    By on

    Great hard poops and much more energy from my pup ! He eats his full bowl two times a day without any hesitation! Highly recommend for anyone where there dog is having runny poops - it may be the fillers in the other brands.
