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.

  • best food for great coats

    By on

    I have two yellow labs and one chocolate labs. They love this food and their coats are amazing. Best of all with vegetarian diets, you do not have to worry about all the nasty remnant meat byproducts in the other foods. Can't recommend this enough! Go VEG for all the dogs and watch them thrive!

  • Vegetarian Formula

    By on

    I thought my dog would love this vegetarian type of dry dog food but I was wrong so I mix it with his regular dry dog food and he will finish the bag but I'm sure there are a lot of dogs that would enjoy it.

  • Healthy and delicious!

    By on

    Before Natural Balance Vegetarian, my pitbull's fur wasn't very shiny and he was always shedding. Just a few days on this new food, his fur was shiny and he stopped shedding as much! His body adjusted to it the best and quickest out of all the other food he's tried. I love that there are actual vegetables listed in the ingredients listing too. I'm glad I'm feeding my fur baby good quality plant based food! He absolutely loves it.

  • Acting young again!

    By on

    My two english bulldogs LOVE this stuff! I had trouble finding kibble that did not to upset their stomachs and cause excessive gas. Farting has decreased by at least 50% and my older bullie is acting spry and silly again which tells me he just feels better all over! Highly recommend, been feeding it for 6 months now.

  • Great Dog Food

    By on

    This food is really working well for my two English Bulldogs. They get so excited at mealtimes eating every bit and continuing to lick the bowl afterwards. Their fur is beautiful nice and thick and shiny. I have also noticed that they have a lot more energy. Very happy with this food.

  • Great Dog Food

    By on

    Our dog has allergies to most proteins, except specific kinds of fish. He needs a LOW Protein dog food. Other than prescription dog food, we haven't found one that he could tolerate well. We stumbled upon Natural Balance Vegetarian food and he loves it. He is 8 and is running, jumping and playing more now that he has since he was a pup. Would recommend this to anyone with a dog that has any allergies or sensitive stomach.
