Transition Instructions

When switching your dog’s diet, we recommend transitioning from the current diet to our Fat Dogs® Formula over a 10 day period. Replace 10% of the current diet with our Fat Dogs® Low Calorie Dry Dog Food each day until they are fully transitioned. If you do not have any of your current formula to mix, reduce the amount of Fat Dogs® Formula fed for the first few days, feeding smaller more frequent meals and increase over time. Do not free feed.

  • Best of the best

    By on

    I have been using NB for over 14 years and have healthy, happy dogs. My one 85lb. goldendoodle has always had issues with sensitive stomach, not with NB food, but if she ate a new treat, or piece of chicken etc. she would have loose poops, but since putting her on fat dog (despite her not being fat, just using it for maintenance) no sensitive stomach issues at all. Her poops are normal, twice a day and she really loves this food and it helps her maintain her girlish figure also.

  • My Experiences With Chewy.com

    By on

    I have been dealing with Chewy.com for several months now. Service is excellent! Savings all kinds of money compared to buying at the local pet stores. Great personal service and quick delivery. Just received a personal Christmas postcard from Michelle in Florida. The Natural Balance Fat Dogs food knocked a few pounds off of our ten-year old beagle. He is short and always a little chubby. At his last check-up, the vet said that his weight was "ideal," not something he ever heard before. Delivery from Chewy is one day and it is nice for delivery to come to our front porch instead of hauling big bags of dog food home.

  • Changed the calories

    By on

    We bought this food on the advice of our groomer. The first bag was labeled as having 250 kcal/cup. Unfortunately by the time we finished the 28 lb bag the food had started to disintegrate. (best used by date 6/19/18). Thinking this might be a one time thing, we purchased another bag (BUBD 10/02/18). That food has not broken down like the first, but the bag is labeled differently as to company location (San Francisco vs Burbank) and the calorie count is now 300 kcal/cup. Since I cannot tell who is actually manufacturing the product and where they are located, plus the increase of calories by 20%, I do not have confidence in the product.

  • Wish I had found this sooner

    By on

    Had our schnauzer on what I thought was a healthy dog food. Didn’t realize the calories she was taking in everyday and she gained too much weight. Feeding this to her is gradually bringing her weight down slowly, as the vet recommended, and she likes the food. Her health is noticeably improving.

  • Lowest K-calorie I can find

    By on

    I signed up for auto delivery and this was the first one. Arrived 2 days after I placed the order! I have an older dog and want to do what is best for him. He seems to like this food so I'm sticking with it. I do mix it with another food though. My boy is a little chunky!

  • Too many fillers and my non picky dogs hated it

    By on

    Too many carb fillers and unneeded forms of protein an fibers. My non picky dogs hated it and wouldn't touch it even though I mixed it with their regular food Dr. Tim's which was out of stock for quite awhile now.

  • My dog loves this food!

    By on

    She is a year and a half year old dachshund. The vet suggested giving her a low fat dog food - mixed 50/50 with a regular food. She has lost her puppy "pudge", looks great, and loves the food.
