Some dogs may be highly sensitive to commonly used proteins, carbohydrates and food additives in their diet. Sensitivity reactions can lead to irritable bowel, upset stomach, and a number of skin problems. Natural Balance has created Potato & Duck formula for dogs with these food sensitivities. This Potato & Duck formula combines fresh duck, a source of animal protein that most dogs have not been exposed to, and a source of carbohydrate not commonly found in dog foods, along with effective natural ingredients to help rebuild the dog's immune system.

Key Benefits

  • A grain-free recipe with limited carbohydrates and no artificial flavors or colors
  • High-quality nutrition aids in good overall health
  • Brown rice gives added nutrients such as fiber and essential oils
  • Omega- 3 fatty acid from flaxseeds gives dogs a healthy and shiny coat
  • With a single animal protein source this formula is perfect for pup’s with food sensitivities

Special Note

Natural Balance recently updated their packaging and formula from "Puppies to Adults" to "Adult Dogs." We still offer a selection of L.I.D. Puppy Formulas as a great alternative for feeding puppies. Note: Customers may receive the old formulation during this transition.

Feeding Instructions

Weight of Adult Dog Daily Feeding
Up to 10 pounds 1/2 - 1 cup
10 - 20 pounds 1 - 1 1/2 cups
20 - 30 pounds 1 1/2 - 2 cups
30 - 40 pounds 2 - 2 1/2 cups

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 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 L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Potato & Duck Small Breed Bites® 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.

  • Good choice for dog with food sensitivities

    By on

    We tried this food as a trial to see if it helped our cavalier King Charles with some horrendous gas issues. He also is a picky eater. Vet suggested he could have some food sensitivity issues. Glad to say that he is happy with it and so are we!

  • Great stuff!

    By on

    One of my juvenile Boston Terriers has a sensitive digestive system. I felt like Goldilocks, trying one product after another. Nothing was just right before I tried Natural Balance LID! Thanks!

  • A godsend.

    By on

    The LID Potato & Duck Small Bites has been a godsend for my food-sensitive dog, and furthermore, she likes it. Though she's not all that small, she eats her food too fast, and she digests the small bites without throwing up like she sometimes did with the larger kibble.

  • great size and taste

    By on

    I have a 3year old Pom. He is a picky dog. I have spent three years looking for a size and flavor he would eat more then once. I do wish they sold , sample size flavors in a box for small breads. I have to buy a 4lb. bag and it does take longer for him to eat that much. I think this company should think about making individual packs . I know their are a lot of animals like mine. I would like to see the wild flavors made like this. It would be great! thanks .susan

  • Thumbs up!

    By on

    I have been a customer of Natural Balance dog food for many years. Even though over the years I have tried other dry dog foods that have gotten higher ratings through Dog Food Advisor, those foods just didn't work as well with my dogs, giving them looser stools. I always come back to Natural Balance.

  • Top grade kibble!

    By on

    I have a 14 yr old Coton de Tulear who is a very finicky eater. At this age, I go out of my way to make her food as appetizing as possible. This duck dry kibble is her favorite, and she needs no wheedling to eat it!!
