Our Lab was putting on weight. We were not sure why. We decided to switch to Natural Balance Fat Dogs and he is so happy. It keeps him satisfied so there is no more begging for food between servings. He loves the food and he has already lost a little weight. We are so glad we found this. We plan to continue using this for our Lab and we also order Natural Balance for our Shih Tzu puppy.
I have 2 chubby dogs and our vet recommended this. Both of my dogs love it, they transitioned to the new food without any stomach upset. It's a little early to be sure, only been eating it for 10 days, but it looks like they might be losing some fat. They still run and play so no dip in energy. Happy with it so far.
We had been feeding our dog regular Natural Balance for years, not over feeding him, he sometimes would not even eat both of his meals but pretty sure he can somehow gain weight just by looking at food! Per vet recommendation we put him on a diet- switched to this food, and he has lost 10 pounds in a year, which is a good, gradual rate. He loves this it, scarfs it down right away. Have started adding veggies for more bulk though because he is always hungry! about 5 more pounds to go. I recommend highly!
This stuff is great! My Bull Terrier can look at food and gain weight. I was adding frozen green beans to the Nutrisource and ProPlan products my other Bull Terriers ate just so she could have some amount of bulk to her diet. I switched her to Natural Balance Fat Dogs and she can eat twice as much kibble and still lose weight and she looks great for her age. Feeding all your dogs the same thing doesn't always make sense!
I don’t know what happened but something changed. My rescue pup ate natural balance since 2017. For about 2 years we were feeding him fat dog food due to weight gain. All of the sudden last May he started having diarrhea. We did meds from the vet, bland diets, and ruled out everything else. I bought bags from different places and switched out bags but every time I gave it to him the diarrhea would come back. I finally gave up in July and switched him to Science Diet sensitive stomach and we’ve had no issues since.
Our dog (50lb chow/beagle mix) has been on diet type food since we got her a few years ago. She’s not active at all- She likes to sleep and doesn’t play. She didn’t seem to like her last diet food and there were supply chain issues so we switched to this. She eats two cups a day and she’s very regular now. She hasn’t lost weight, but she hasn’t gained weight either. She usually eats her food right when it’s served (she didn’t used to). We mix her food with water to create a gravy of sorts as we find the food is very, very hard especially for senior pets. Hydrating it a bit seems to really make it better for our girl.
I purchased a small bag to try, my daughter's baby Ziggy has put on extra pounds and needed to get it off. He eats it but I think it's because he so darn hungry he has no other option. We will see how it goes, stay tuned.
Pookie is in need of losing a few pounds and she has taken to this neww food. Hopefully it will help her lose the weight she needs to.
My border collie was sidelined by shoulder surgeries for 1.5 years and needed to restrict her activity. She gained 9 pounds and I needed to get it off once she was healed so she could resume her agility career. I tried 4 other foods. Fat Dogs did the trick. After 6 months, she is her pre-injury weight and back to competing!
Two of our three dogs are plump so gave this food a try. Dogs did not seem eager to eat and gave one of them horrible gas.
