These feeding guidelines are suggested only. Feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament and climate. 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® Reduced Calorie Formula, we suggest to start 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. If you would like to provide a special treat for your dog, you can add small amounts of Natural Balance® Canned Dog Food.

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 less active dog. Older dogs are sometimes more reluctant to eat hard foods. Adding larger amounts of Natural Balance® Canned Dog Food or Natural Balance® Dog Food Rolls will make the most "finicky" eater enjoy his daily meals.

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® Ultra Premium Reduced Calorie 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helps keep my dogs weight in control My dogs good health includes keeping their weight under control. October 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My minoin loves this I tried different dog foods but my minpin had some problems with them until i went back to Natural Balance.. he just loves this dog food and no problems with him since i switched September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feeding to 2 Pugs I have been feeding this to one of my Pugs for about 6 months and recently put another on this same kibble. Lovey has lost and is maintaining her loss while on this kibble and Burt is losing to keep a collapsed trachea in check. This kibble is flat, disc shaped...about the size of a Cheerio, and is easy for them to manage. For Lovey, I have her on this kibble with reduced portions of wet food (they all get a little wet food so I can hide their medicine). Once she lost the necessary weight, we have maintained the loss by slightly increasing her portion of dry but maintaining small portions of wet. Am following the same protocol for Burt, who is a healthy weight but has a collapsed trachea that will be better managed at a lighter weight. June 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good dog food Have some fatties that need to back down a few pounds. They love it, and I've seen some results. Good ingredients and results in fairly short time. July 25, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing food I have 6 dogs. One needs low protein and another needs low fat. after hours and hours of research on the web I found this and I got two thumbs up from the vet. more importantly ALL the dogs love it. first low fat food they love and never walk away from. I am one happy pet mom!!!! July 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Chubbie doggie likes it! Our chubbie pit bull rescue needed to loose at least 10 lbs, so a reduced calorie food was recommended. We switched from Natural Balance, Synergy to this food, and after the "break in period" she seems to enjoy, and no adverse reactions. I can tell she's lost weight, but won't be going back to vet for another month, so not certain of how much. She's been on it for about 3-4 weeks. We also cut down on treats, and pork chews etc. July 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life saver I have a large breed dog that was going to have some non cancerous cysts removed. Since he is 7 it was highly recommended that blood work be done. We found he was in the early stages of kidney failure. The vet recommended RX food or a low protein food of my choice. This was the lowest I found at 18%. Not only did my big guy drop 5 lbs (105 to 100), but his kidney numbers were back to normal! Not high normal, but normal normal. He was able to have the surgery & is running around like a puppy! He looks & feels so much better. I am sold & on auto ship. I work at Petsmart & we don't carry this particular food, but do carry NB as a whole. They are now my #1 recommendation! April 7, 2016
