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.

  • My dogs love it!

    By on

    My dogs love this! It's great to feed them healthy food that doesn't require the death of other animals. It never made sense to me to kill other animals to feed the ones I that live with me. I love all animals. I hope there are more vegetarian options in the future. This food has all the protein and nutrients a dog needs to be healthy and happy.

  • very good for my purpose

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    I decided that I no longer wanted my dogs to eat the meat in commercial dog foods anymore. My dogs are not that fond of this by itself but I mix it with meat that I prepare and with yogurt or coconut and they like it. This brand does not stink like meat based kibble and I no longer feel like I have to wash my hand repeatedly to get the smell of kibble off my hands. This is clean kibble and smells like dry oatmeal. After a couple of weeks, they are starting to eat it a little more.

  • Not a top choice

    By on

    I recently bought this for my little dogs; Chi-dachshund and 2 Papillons. None of them liked it! Thankfullly I have big dogs who will eat anything, I mixed it in with their normal diet and it will eventually get eaten, but I won't purchase it again.

  • I don't know

    By on

    My dog stopped eating her last food which had meat in it, so I switched her to this which has no meat and she's stopped eating it too. She might just be weird. I think the food is fine, I'm just not sure what she wants.

  • 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!

    I buy this to cut with my dog's very expensive prescription food. I haven't heard him complain about this and it's been several years.
