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.

    I purchased a soft kennel that, when I received it, was too large and I couldn't open. I called Chewy, asked for their return procedure. They said that Chewy wanted me to donate the kennel to an animal shelter, which I did. I am a good person, even kind, however in our current climate I realized that I haven't been accustomed to experiencing generosity of this type and, I became tearful. Chewy has a customer for life....More importantly, I remembered the kindness that can be a part of the culture of Big Business. Thanks for listening.

  • Great for sensitive stomachs and regular movements

    By on

    We have a 10 year old lab mix who has struggled with allergies the last 6-7 years. We have tried different proteins and he did best on venison. We switched up his food a couple months ago because of his health. This LID food with Venison has been great for him. Much more consistent #2's and he has really enjoyed the taste. We stir a little warm water with the dry food before we give it to him and he goes to town. He was a grazer before, taking mouthfuls around the house to eat a little bit at a time.

  • After sticking with it I think it a good one!

    By on

    When I first switched I didn't like it and my dog didn't either but... I stuck with it because I couldn't figure out anything else I liked better and that fit my budget. So while I was pondering my new brand I found my dog came around to like it. Well -He prefers halo but this is a better option price wise and is better for food allergies. I figure it's a kin to a kid preferring pasta over broccoli. So I do recommend it and I love ordering off this site the shipping is amazing and so is the customer service. Now that I've settled on a food I set up recurring shipping and I don't have to give it any more thought. Easy Pezy!

  • Great for allergy problems.

    By on

    This is the only brand I've found --after months of trying food that my dog both enjoys and he can tolerate. No more scratching--and body odor from the scratching. His coat has changed to a shiney black silky state---and he's a happy dog---even gained a few pounds--which he needed. He is back to his Gordon setter show dog status--and ready to go. His allergies and all the symptoms are now gone. So glad I found this food.

  • Pry seems to enjoy it; Cocker not so much

    By on

    Large size and hardness of kibbles makes it difficult for Danny-boy to chew. Bought him small dog Fish and Sweet potato which he likes. Frankie likes the flavor of the Venison and sweet potato, but we will switch him to the fish and sweet potato to avoid having to buy two kinds of food, as Frankie will steal Danny-boys food when he finishes eating his own. Since switching to the grain free Frankie isn't scratching as much and Danny isn't chewing his hind end as constantly. Guess grain free was the way to go for both of them.

  • Great product!

    By on

    I bought this for my German Shepherd who has bladder incontinence issues. I bought it because it is grain free and hoping it would help with her incontinence. She loves it. I have not had to give her any medication since she has started this food. She has been on it for a month and has only had one small accident. I highly recommend this product

    I have a dog that is intolerant to grains. I have tried different brands but she enjoys Natural Balance LID better than any brand I have tried. I love the fact that it is made with Sweet Potato and Venison.

  • Great product for sensitive tummy dogs

    By on

    We have tried way more brands of dog food than we care to mention, including prescriptions. None of these seem to resolve the problem with the tummy or skin allergies. So far after 6 weeks this dog food with venison and the grain free mix is working well for him. By the way he is no small Shepherd at 118 lbs, so when he has a problem everyone has a problem. I highly recommend the sweet potato & Venison.

    I purchased this food for my dog. He was having some issues and I believe this has helped him. His bowel movements have improved and are not really loose loke they was before and the color is better also. I am pleased with the quality and the price. Kathy

  • My dog has allergies & can eat this product

    By on

    My dog has been on Venison/Sweet Potato formula for 8 years. He gets all the Venison/Sweet Potatoe treats as well. He gets no other products due to allergies as mentioned above. Natural Balance Venison/ Sweet Potato has been consistently a great reliable product.
