Rated 4 out of 5 by NotReady4Retirement Great Dog Food - Free Shipping is the best bonus
This is a great Vegetarian Food, and probably one of the best for Dogs on Animal Protein restrictive diets.
My dog is a 12 year old patient with a tumor, on an Animal Protein restrictive, Vegetarian Diet, because of the medicines she is taking. She loves the taste of Natural Balance, but on difficult days, I have to coax her to eat by spreading about two teaspoons of Baby Food Potted Meat (Chicken, Beef, Turkey) over the entire top. She loves meat, and a complete Vegetarian diet has been a strain on her. The addition of free shipping makes the Natural Balance Diet very affordable at 50 - 60% that of a retail stores, and other more expensive, but comparable brands. I highly recommend this product to all needing or desiring a complete Vegetarian Diet for their Canine family member.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweetferiend Great Product! My Dog has been Vegetarian for 6 years now.
The company Chewy.com saved me close to $50. I saved so much money shopping on Chewy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MysticN Yay vegan dog food!
I am not 100% vegan myself but I am aspiring and I a definitely lean toward veggie options for my dogs.
Some people seem dubious about feeding dogs vegetarian diets but I know it is absolutely possible for dogs to eat a completely vegetarian diet and get everything they need out of it. I am not an expert but I did take a college course on companion animal nutrition. The basic, most important thing to know is that any manufactured food labeled as complete and balanced means it has all the required nutrients and vitamins to be fed as an exclusive diet. This product is. Of course I don't feed it exclusively (I add it to dry food), but I could.
If this product were to stay at its current sale price it would absolutely be my first choice indefinitely. My dogs both like it and they have no idea (I'm sure) that it is entirely plant based. They don't care at all. Not even the one who ignores me, instead of begging, while I am chopping vegetables.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HMatthews All vegetable dog food
My dog seemed to enjoy this dog food as much as any other food containing meat. The only thing really different about it is the texture/consistency of the food. It's kind of "stiff" out of the can...not easily scoopable. My dog didn't seem to mind, but I had to work at breaking it up so he didn't eat such big pieces. Usually the Natural Balance food I buy has an easily scoopable/spreadable consistency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dinomary I never thought I'd feed my dog vegan food...
I now proudly feed my 7yo minpin a mix of his rX dry food and give him this as his wet food. HE LOVES THIS STUFF. I was scared he wouldn't like it so I went to my local PetSmart and bought a single can before I made the order on Chewy. That evening I mixed a bit with his food and he was HOOKED. His test results are now coming back better than they ever have before and we have not had a seizure since. Plus I love the fact that it does not smell bad at all. He loved it so much I went ahead and ordered the Vegetarian Dental Chews as well. Thank you for making it easy to spoil my dog to health ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by jen1963 It's a really good food!
We love our Bassett hounds but they can have heavy trouble with meat allergies and in one of our dogs that's the case. I tried several vegetarian foods but found most of them so excessively sweet you might as well give a bowl of sugar! And yes I tasted them all but the Natural Balance was so good with a savory flavor and the dogs all love it! And we have gone with vegan kibble too (tastes kind of like a cracker) and our Benny is so much better and we are so grateful to Natural Balance for making such a superior food. Buy this you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoodleMom7 Our 10 year old dog is acting like a puppy again!
We were feeding our 10 year old toy poodle Merrick Senior Medley canned dog food. She has liver problem and can no longer eat dry kibble. Merrick discontinued this formula so we tried another Merrick recipe. She was vomiting and had diarrhea so I called Chewy's to see if we could return 1 unused case. Chewy's said not only would they refund the price of 1 case, but both cases we bought. Chewy' said not to return the case, but to donate it to a local animal shelter. Wow! Excellent customer service! We donated the unused case to our local poodle rescue who was thrilled to receive it. After doing some research and experimenting with other canned foods that are good for senior dogs with liver issues, we settled on Natural Balance Vegetarian canned dog food. Our 10 year old Dog is acting like a puppy again! She's happy, playful, and bouncy again. She wolfs her food down, has no more vomiting, and her stools are normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BevAndChihuahuas dogs love it
My two very healthy dogs (according to vet) love this vegetarian dog food. Vet also says the only dogs that need meat are puppies & starving dogs that need to gain weight quickly.
