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.

Natural Balance Vegetarian Formula Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Dog Food in this House Since I don't eat meat, it didn't seem right serving my four-legged friend ground-up animal in a can. Have been feeding this to my 4 year old German Shephard mix and she likes it. That's saying a lot, because she's never really liked dog food and used to hold off all day in hopes of getting some people food. She's been eating this for about 6 months now and goes for it soon after it's in bowl and eats it all at one time. Plus she's healthy as can be and has lost a little weight. The vet hadn't heard of this food before, but after he looked over the nutritional info he was convinced it is a healthy and complete dog food. This is the only dog food that I'll go with. Not to mention, Chewy is excellent all around!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jury is still out I am Vegan and thought it would be nice to transition my Dogs to a non meat diet. We just completed the half meat/ half Vegan food steps and they've been on the Vegan food for just a few days so that's the reason for the four stars. Both of them eat the food with no hesitation so that's a good sign. I will re review this food after they've been consuming it for a few months. The consistency of their stools and the luster of their coats will be the deciding factor on maintaining them on the Vegan food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! My dog has food allergies and has been on a food that he did not particularly like. I talked to my vet and he suggested I try Natural Balance Vegetarian. My dog just loves it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a winner! I purchased Natural Balance, Halo, and Wysong to see which one my dog would prefer and this was the winner! I was surprised he liked this one the best because I normally feed him a small kibble. He is a pit bull but usually prefers smaller dry food. Even though this is a large kibble, it is flat so it is easy to chew. I would not recommend this for a small dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my pup My dog suddenly developed an intolerance to seemingly all meats (we have tried what seems like every type of meat) to no avail. This product isn't sold anywhere near me (closest is about 30 mins away) and it isn't convenient to drive to pick it up all the time (plus even that store doesn't sell vegetarian treats, I get those here!). I love this company so much for making it easy to get my puppy the food his sensitive tummy needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nature Balance Vegetarian dog food My two eight month old pups seem to like it just fine...they gobble it right up. There was no problem switching from their previous food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loved it. My dog has severe allergies and cannot eat beef, chicken, pork, etc. He has to eat grain-free food which he does like and I bought a small bag of the veggie mix to give him a variety in his food. He took to it very well and loves it. I put a little bit of water in the food to give it a wet taste as a gravy.
