I see the third ingredient is "lamb meal." What is lamb meal composed of exactly?
Answer by ChewyJun 16, 2018
Lamb meal is ground up lamb meat that has been carefully dried. When meat meals are made, the meat is cooked until all the excess water in the whole muscle meat evaporates, leaving you with highly concentrated protein.

Crazy Wicked Gas

I have a puppy and a senior dog who of course want to eat each other’s food. I solved this problem with mixing adult food with this puppy food. I started experiencing crazy wicked gas from both dogs. I mean WOW! Gas. It stunk up my whole house and was constant and silent. It was so bad that when my puppy went to the vet for his last set of shots the vet brought the topic up the minute she entered the room. She said, so I see we have a gas problem and reopened the door to air out the room and stood in the open doorway for the fresh air. She suggested to stop using the food to see if it was the source of the gas problems and it’s now no more gas. I’m SO disappointed! It is the only dog food I can find that doesn’t contain chicken or oatmeal the two things my senior dog has allergies towards. I was actually considering switching to only this food but now I have to return the large bag that was just delivered.

Puppy Food

Our new addition was fed Science Diet at the kennel/breeder. She was not eager to eat, only would take small amounts and hand feeding (note 8 weeks-10 weeks old). Our other pups (adult) eat Lamb and Rice by Natural Balance. WE elected to begin the new puppy on the same puppy version (she was eager to hunt for left overs of the BIG DOG food). She is being transitioned with a mixture of the old and the new and is loving her feedings. She is much more energetic. She eats a soft food mix in the AM and PM and throughout the day she has opportunity to have dry lamb and rice puppy by Natural Balance. She cleans her bowl! No more hand feeding or 'kibble promoting'! She likes it and eats it all by herself!! WE love Natura Balance.

Great ltd. ingredient food

My rescue puppy was on 4health chicken and rice when we brought him home on May 29, 2022. He was itchy, his coat was fairly sparse, and had super soft stool. At our first vet visit we were advised that he could be allergic to chicken and to consider trying something different. I went to a pet store near by a bought a small bag of Natural Balance lamb and rice puppy formula. We went on a road trip a couple of days later and I had premixed bags of food to do the slow transition. On day 3 of the transition I noticed Kermit pushing his old food out of the way and only eating the Natural Balance. So I picked all of the other food out and have fed him only the Natural Balance since Father's day weekend, luckily I had packed extra food or he would have been a hungry boy. His coat is so dense, stool is still a little on the soft side but that's easily remedied with 2 Tbsp of canned pumpkin per meal.

Solved my frenchie's gastro issues

I switched my 8 month old frenchie from Diamond puppy to this. I didn't have to ween her off because she's a choker and will anything. By the next day her poop was healthy.

damaged items

as much as we love chewy and there're service. This is the second time we have received are dog food open and and scattered throughout the box within a couple months. the carrier box is intact so it leads me to believe there is a snagging or packaging issue at the wearhouse.

Ever-changing formula….

We got our puppy in March 2022. Started on the food and it was great, puppy transitioned off of her old food nicely, and had no digestive issues. The next bag we bought was a different shaped kibble - went from Cheerios shape to small round kibble. Not a huge deal, because the ingredients were the same, but for our large puppy these smaller kibble pieces weren’t ideal as she could just inhale her food. The next bag we purchased was again new. The shape was even smaller, now a disc shape, and MUCH lighter yellow. Since I wasn’t anticipating a change to the food again, I didn’t have any of the last bag of food left to mix with the new formula. Our puppy did NOT react well to this change (runny stool, light yellow, etc). I reached out directly to the manufacturer to ask (they actually have a pretty easy to navigate chat feature on their website) as it was pretty concerning that I never got a single bag of food that was the same. The person was pretty rude and not understanding/empathetic, but did let me know that they switched the formula from sunflower to canola oil due to sourcing issues and it’s “more shelf stable” All that to say, we ended up having to waste a 30 lb bag of food (no longer in the original bag so couldn’t return or donate) and now switched to Blue Buffalo and have had 0 issues since

new formula

this product has caused distress in my puppy that I never had with previous use. The kibble is too small also.

Best one out there

Have tried many and although they have made some changes in size of kibble etc.. it’s still the best for coat and overall health. I do supplement w pre and post biotics
