My "Picky" Dog Lola Loves This Food!

My 1 1/2 year old dog Lola (she's a 20 lb. chihuahua mix) is very picky and cannot eat anything with poultry in it (chicken/turkey/duck) which happens to be in a majority of dog foods and treats nowadays. I put this food in a bowl expecting her to smell it and walk away, but to my surprise she started chowing down on it until the whole bowl was empty! I was sp pleasantly surprised! I give this food 2 paws up from Lola!

Love this dry food

This is a great product for dogs with delicate tummy's. My vet wanted me to try a food with limited ingredients and we landed on Natrual Balance Lamb and Brown Rice. And it worked. Now two dogs more and they are on it as well and they love it!!

Small Breed

My mistake, I ordered the small breed, I didn't realize there are different kibble sizes in this brand, I will have to reorder as I concerned my dog might choke on such a small kibble size

Treat worthy

My new shelter rescue is being treated for a lot of issues and struggles with no appetite. He loves this food. I took away one star, bc the kibble are way too small. These kibbles are pea sized and good for toy breeds only. Not to worry, my 18lb dog has no problem with the regular sized kibbles, so get those if your dog is around 20lbs. I should also note that my sick boy gets energy from this food. He could be super lethargic, then eat this, he is playing with squeaky toys 5 minutes later. Also, my other dog has severe allergies, as well as IBD, and I have given here the regular sized kibbles as training treats. They sit well in her belly and do not cause any itching. I might start giving her this small kibble to see if it can be her new diet. She is a pug mix with a tiny mouth. This pea sized kibble is perfect for her.

Vet recommended

My Vet recommended this limited ingredient dog food because both of my older rescue dogs are allergic to chicken. Even many high grade dog foods use chicken meal as a protein source or a filler. My dogs love this food and they are served both wet and dry Natural Balance Lamb And Rice . There is even a treat sized product ! Normally I used the large kibble but it has been hard to come by lately. This is the same food just in a smaller form.

Great for food intolerance

After 6 weeks of loose stools, transitioned my dog to this after vet felt she may have a chicken intolerance. Things are improving- finally.

Not good...........

First off there is no zip closure- why would you not install this? When I was pouring this food out a big balled-up clump of kibble all stuck together came out. I was weary of the quality but still decided to feed it to my dog. A few hours later my dog started acting weird and got sick- upset stomach, runny stool and vomiting. Stopped using this food.

True to labeling

Had to switch my Pug to a lamb and rice diet only to find that about 90% of what says lamb and rice has chicken as its first ingredient. My baby is allergic to chicken. Natural Balance has no chicken and he loves it. Now with the small bites he really loves it.
