Some dogs may be highly sensitive to commonly used proteins, carbohydrates and food additives in their diet. Sensitivity reactions can lead to irritable bowel, upset stomach, and a number of skin problems. Natural Balance has created Potato & Duck formula for dogs with these food sensitivities. This Potato & Duck formula combines fresh duck, a source of animal protein that most dogs have not been exposed to, and a source of carbohydrate not commonly found in dog foods, along with effective natural ingredients to help rebuild the dog's immune system.

Key Benefits

  • High-quality nutrition aids in good overall health
  • Brown rice gives added nutrients such as fiber and essential oils
  • Omega- 3 fatty acid from flaxseeds gives dogs a healthy and shiny coat
  • With a single animal protein source this formula is perfect for pup’s with food sensitivities

The amounts in the table are intended as guidelines only. The food intake should be adjusted according to the age, weight, breed, temperature, climate and activity level of your dog. Consult a veterinarian for specific weight recommendations.

Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diet Dry Dog Food, we suggest starting with the amounts recommended in the table. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog's needs.

For 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. For 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.

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 L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Potato & Duck Small Breed Bites® Dry Dog Food. The change should be completed after 5 - 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.

    I give this to my two little Maltese just for a snack not for a meal and it works very well they get the vegetarian and the fish and potato for the main meals since both of them cannot eat chicken or turkey

    My dog has skin allergies and will bite and lick her skin due to the itching caused by allergies. By switching to the potato and duck formula food, her skin has healed and is less bothersome.

  • Scratching Dog

    By on

    even with grain free food, my dog was scratching himself far to often. Once I changed to this Duck formula, he has almost stopped scratching himself. This is a great food. I really wish they would make a yam and duck formula.

  • Wonderful and nutritionally balanced

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I have 6 small yorkies and some who are exceptionally picky eaters. The Natural Balance line of dog food has been my most successful effort in trying to get them to eat enough. I like the wide variety of choices in food and flavors and this limited ingredient diet potato and duck formula is wonderful for my dogs. They transitioned to this with no problems.

  • Grief symptoms relieved

    By on

    Reggie was diagnosed with Stress Related Colinitis after my husband passed away. Once I changed his diet from Lamb to Duck, his symptoms finally cleared. He's so much better now and loves it.

  • The cure for allergies

    By on

    I started feeding this food to my rescue Yorkie about 6 years ago. At the time he had very little hair, was covered in sores and chewed constantly. His allergies were so bad he was on prescription antihistamines and immunosuppression medication. Now he has beautiful hair, no sores and has been off all medications for 5 years. I wouldn't feed him anything else

  • Our dogs love this food!

    By on

    We were introduced to this kibble when we rescued a dog a few years ago. We gradually switched our dogs over to this brand and they love it. Duck has fewer (none?) additives than chicken/beef. And no grain!
