These feeding guidelines are suggested only. Feeding amounts may vary by breed, activity level, temperament and climate. Amounts are recommended for an average dog with normal activity. Adjust feeding guideline according to your dog’s age, activity level, and environment.

Adult dogs: Feed either once or twice a day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® Vegetarian Dry Dog Food, we suggest starting with the amounts recommended in the table. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog’s needs. 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. 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.

We recommend that you do not add vitamins, minerals, or any other supplements, except upon the advice of a veterinarian. 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® Vegetarian 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Highest quality and dog tested :) This has been the best find ever. My female lab cannot process any meat protein of any kind. This food gives her all the nutrition she needs and she LOVES the flavor. October 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprisingly Fast! I really like ordering from Chewy.com. It was easy to set up my account and the food came a day earlier than was quoted. Ordering from Chewy.com saves me time, gasoline, and money! October 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Natural balance vegetarian food My dogs love this food and I will definitely buy it again. Thank you October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This food is a blessing for food allergies Our two year old boxer has had problems with food allergies since he was 6 months old. I have been on the verge of tears everyday for the past year and a half because our poor dog was so miserable. We had spent thousands of dollars at the vet and spent even more on extremely expensive medicines to give this poor baby relief. He would itch himself bloody, he had hardly any hair left on his face and around his ears. He also suffered from extreme ear infections. It broke my heart to see him like this. I have done so much reading, trying to educate myself on what I could do to give him relief. I have tried every food under the sun and every novel protein imaginable. Even with the expensive medicine he still showed issues from the allergies. I finally gave this food a try and after two weeks on the food he doesn't even have to take the medicine anymore. We have finally gotten a good nights rest because hes not rolling around on the floor and itching like crazy. I can not say in words how wonderful this food is. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality vegan food I am not vegan nor or my dogs in general, but I wanted a variation in their meat inclusive diet. I have found this food to be of good quality and my dogs will eat it. I have a Chihuahua and one of my Chinese Cresteds that I am feeding it to most of the time. The Chihuahua has lost weight but not lost condition or energy. My Crested has also lost weight and is maintaining much better during our warm season. He also has good energy and condition. With all the dogs getting older (9 - coming 12), I am more aware to vary their protein and fat percentage. Liver Enzyme levels are down to normal for my Crested without any medication. I am very pleased, to say the least. I believe that the quality of vegan foods has improved greatly from what it was years ago. I am glad I tried this food and feel it is a great food for those dogs that do best with vegan food. By the way, I do add some wet food now and then feed meat inclusive foods and I also rotate the vegan food brands as each one has its own benefits. Variety is something I will always provide for my dogs. I recommend NB foods and would urge anyone to try them out for their dogs. June 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Natural Balance Vegetarian Dog Food From Chewy I highly recommend this dog food if you have dogs like mine with a lot of food allergies and protein metabolism issues. Grain free dog foods still contain many of the food products that cause allergic reactions. This dog food does not; and it's higher in protein than many prescription hypo-allergenic dog food only available from your vet. But this review is also about Chewy.com as well. I use to buy this food from one of the large pet supply stores until they decided to carry only small bags. The large size bags were still available on their website, so I tried ordering online. The product wasn't the same. It was duller in color and smelled stale. I tried another bag with the same stale results. I was told it came from a warehouse on the east coast and was manufactured at a facility somewhere other than the one that supplied the store. So I switched to one of the other large pet supply stores that still carried the larger size bags. But I had been ordering vegetarian treats from Chewy for a while, so I thought I would give them a try for this product...in the smallest size bag. Seems to be the same product you get from the store. I have a large bag on order now. We'll see if it's still the same product in the large size. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it! The kibble pieces are small enough for my toy poodle and he loves this food. He's digesting it well and has lots of energy. August 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! I love this product and thank goodness to Natural Balance that they have this amazing vegetarian food for dogs! I have a 3.5 yr old chihuahua and 1 year old doxie mix, both dogs love this food. I sometimes add 0% fat milk to it and my dogs can't wait to eat their food. They LOVE this!! I have also got it checked with my vet for any lack of nutrition or enzyme due to no meat diet and she said Natural Balance has it ALL!!! It's a complete verified healthy diet for my dogs. I also love the wet vegetarian can food option if your dog is not onto dry food. In all a life saver product for dogs! July 22, 2016
