Feeding Instructions

Weight of Adult Dog Daily Feeding
50 - 70 pounds 3 - 4 cups
71 - 90 pounds 4 - 4 3/4 cups
91 - 120 pounds 4 3/4 - 6 cups
121 - 150 pounds 6 - 7 pounds
150 pounds and over 7 cups, plus 1/2 cup per every 15 pounds of body weight over 150 pounds

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 Natural Balance® Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Large 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.

    By on

    This is one of the only foods my allergic dog can eat, and he liked it. In the last 6+ months, there has been what my husband and I call "dust" in the food, finely ground dog food. My dog hates it. I have to use a colander to remove it, which worked for a while. More recently, the food has included more and more broken bits that are too large for the colander but again, my dog does not like it. We really loved this product, but I would say the quality had dropped in the last year. We are seeking alternatives. My current rating is about a 1 or 2, but if asked over a year ago, I would have given it a 5.

  • Great product but kibble a little small for large breed.

    By on

    When looking for a larger kibble for our smaller dog I just switched to the large breed. She now chews her food and does not just swallow it. We have used Natural Balance for the dogs since they were puppies but the size of the kibble has just become too small. The smaller dog eats the large breed kibble and the large dog now eats Royal Canin Sheperd. Other than the size the product is excellent.

    I've have been getting this brand for my Rottie for over a year now. He has a sensitive stomach and can't even tolerate other flavors. Great that I can order online, get a discount and not have to run into the store for this one thing. Arrived quickly without any issues.

    My dog is allergic to chicken so finding a food for her without chicken or chicken by-products I found extremely difficult..On the recommendation of my veterinarian I tried the Natural Balance limited ingredient diet and saw results almost immediately! She stopped scratching and licking her paws within days as well and the redness around her eyes cleared up! Even though I own a "Pitbull" (sweetest breed there is) I purchased the large breed formula. Most people are not made aware that most large breed formulas contain extra vitamins and minerals such as glucosamine chondroitin and Omega fats.. my dog's coat is super soft, silky and shiny!

  • This product has been excellent.

    My dog was around 4 when I had a complete allergy test done on him. I found out he was allergic to just about everything I was feeding him. After looking around, I found Dick VanPattens Limited ingredient Dog Food. No more diahrea or breakout sores. He is doing great. I would highly recommend this brand for food allergies.

  • Lamb & Brown Rice

    By on

    We have been purchasing the Salmon & Sweet Potato dog food in this brand for our Dalmatian/Labrador mix over the past several years. He has recently become sensitive to it. His skin & breath smelled badly all the time, and he suffered from a rash all over. This lamb food seems okay so far. They are bigger chunks which he likes and we can use them as treats as well, and the food smells good, not stinky like the fish food. He's been eating it for a few weeks so time will tell, but we are hopeful.
