Caused IBD flare up

I tried this food for my puppy who was having horrible diarrhea and soft stools for months. This was our last ditch effort before switching to prescription food. She has since been diagnosed with IBD and we are still searching for the right food/treats for her

great food - some inconsistency.

My 7 mo lab was having issues with diarrhea when I continued the puppy food his breeder had him on. My trainer recommended this food and I will never look back. TMI but perfect poops! My only issue is that sometimes this kibble comes and looks like cheerios, other times it's in small triangular pieces (I autoship so it is always the same thing). Whenever the switch happens, it will upset his stomach for a few days. Not sure why that happens but otherwise highly recommend.

very Satisfied

Natural Balance has been my go to for the last 20 years. I have had both dogs and cats use this brand of food, they have all had long healthy lives. I highly recommend to anyone who doesn’t want wheat, corn or soy in their fur babies diet!

Not consistent!

I do not understand when I order this every month and each month it is a different size kibble. One month it looks like little donuts and my dog will then chew his food and then next it is tiny little kibble which he just swallows. Please get consistent kibble!!

Good, but a bit pricy

As far as puppy food goes, this seems to be really good quality. I got a smaller bag 1st but my corgi doesn't seem too picky so I think she'd eat it anyway lol. It's not overly smelly and it looks like little Cheerios. Anyway, seems like a good food, it's just on the high end of the price range for the bag sizes so I give it 4 stars. Food quality is 5 stars.

Buy a small bag first

I was recommended this brand and for some reason I bought the largest bag available. My puppy doesn’t like it and my other dogs won’t go near it.
