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 Natural Balance® Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Large 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.

  • Very grainy

    By on

    I tried this because the food I have fed my giant breed dogs for their lives is no longer being made. The pieces are large flat disc shaped, but there was a lot of dust/broken up pieces. It didn't make it bad but my dogs won't eat it when it had lots of this dust on it.

  • Best for my 2 Service Dogs

    By on

    After some research, I decided to switch from Wellness(which is a great food) to NB as it was what seemed to fit my dogs best. The overall change in 2 weeks had been amazing! Their coats are still as shiney and soft as ever but their excrement was even smaller, which was hard to imagine with a 90# shepherd and a 88# Doberman. Their eating a little less but their energy levels are surprisingly higher. #wayhappySDtrainer #happySDMomma

  • She'd Rather Starve

    By on

    My vet recommended a limited Diet of something we hadn't tried before. My puppy seems to be allergic to something. So we thought we would try lamb. After trying it for 5 days and with a cortisone shot her skins seems to be improving, but now she won't even touch it. However... I am happy to say that Chewy is honoring the 100% guarantee and allowing me to return it and try another L.I.D. !

  • Great for allergies

    By on

    We thought our mastif had a grass allergy. Her paws were bloody and infected from constant licking and chewing. Thought it had to be environmental because she was eating a good($$$) food blue buffalo. We tried this just because of availability and like magic within about 4 days her paws were healed and she hasn't licked em since. 2.5 years later still allergy free

  • My fur babies ike this

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Both 'dawgs' seem to enjoy this new flavor. The chunks are large so they are not just swallowing them. I always mix with a bit of warm water and I can get an au jus for them with this food. I like the ingredients so all is good. I would recommend this to anyone with large dogs.

  • My dogs' favorite so far.

    By on

    Tried different brands. Our dogs are the ones eating it, so they get to choose. They seem to like Natural Balance the best. I've tried different flavors, and they seem to like all of them. I wanted to get healthier food for them without having to prepare it myself. This seems to make all of us happy.

  • My dog approves!

    By on

    We've tried a few brands of dry food for my finicky & digestively sensitive female GSD. Natural Balance; in particular this formula mixed with the Venison & sweet potato formula, has been the only food that she consistently enjoys & thrives on. The convenience of having it automatically shipped to us on a regular basis is pretty awesome too. We've seen a dramatic difference in her health & weight since she's been on this food!

  • Our dane loves it!

    By on

    Our great dane seems to have more energy and loves it! The kibbles are bigger than the regular LID pieces-- about the size of a nickel. Easier for bigger breeds to eat. We also love the 28lb bag size!

  • My dogs like it and the change was easy

    By on

    My greyhound developed allergies and our vet recommend we go to a limited ingredient food. My dogs were able to switch to this food with no issues and they like it. It is also large bite size like my old food.
