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 pregnant females: A minimal increase is needed during the first 6 weeks. Increase the amount fed up to 25% during weeks 7, 8, and 9. For lactating females: Immediately after whelping, the nutritional demand increases by 50% compared to maintenance levels. Feed in 3 equal meals per day. 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® Chicken & Sweet Potato 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.

  • Changed to grain-free.

    By on

    Our cocker is a picky eater, and usually eats one time a day. Since changing to this food, the kibbles are small, which is a thing our little one loves. Eats 2x/s a day now and digestion is working great!!

  • Natural Balance for food

    This is the food our dogs always eat but it is so much more convenient to have it automatically shipped to our door just in time before we run out.

  • Easier on small mouths

    By on

    My pups love this food and it's agreeable on their aging tummies. They did have to work around the fact that the kibble size was a bit large for a chihuahua, so when the Small Breed option came out I was thrilled.

  • Miss Goldies Fav

    By on

    This is Miss Goldies Favorite food. Got the biggest bag I could get in the small bites. Was 3 times the size of the bags at the pet store. And the price added up to the cost of 2 bags at the pet store price. That's the same as getting one small bag free. Was also shipped right to my door and it arrived super fast. Only two days after I ordered it. Awesome. :-)

    I bought this food several years several years ago for a dog I had with a sensitive tummy. Then I fed it to another dog I had that had skin allergies. It’s successful for both issues and the dogs like it!
