Questions & Answers

Does Natural Balance use Elk venison in this kibble?
Answer by ChewyDec 15, 2017
The type of venison used in Natural Balance is sourced from deer.

Is this food processed in the same machines and mass containers during production as other food types such as chicken? As to say, can cross contamination of food/proteins occur?
Answer by ChewyDec 29, 2017
Natural Balance products are manufactured on shared machinery. However, they take every precaution to minimize the risk of cross contamination between production runs. To reduce the risk of cross contamination, the manufacturing lines are thoroughly flushed between each production run. The lines are completely cleaned per the facility’s Food Safety Plan in compliance with FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Audits are also performed on a regular basis by our Quality Assurance Team. Further, several samples are also taken throughout each production run for Quality Assurance inspection as well as their Buy With Confidence laboratory testing. For this reason, if a pet has a medical condition such as allergies, it is advisable that the pet parent consult with their veterinarian prior to starting on any of our products.

Is it gmo free?
Answer by ChewyOct 19, 2017
This is not a GMO free food.

How many cups are in this bag
Answer by ChewyNov 02, 2020
The 4.5-pound bag contains approximately 18 cups of kibble, the 13-pound bag contains approximately 52 cups of kibble and the 26-pound bag contains approximately 104 cups of kibble.

small pieces, dust in bag

I have now received 2 bags over a 7 year span that has had very fine pieces of kibble as well as a fine dust from manufacturing. I'm giving the food 4 stars because its a good food, but more quality control is needed. Chewy has been great replacing the bags when this happens

Wonderful food for our allergy prone dog

We've been struggling for years to help Dean with his allergies. Turns out that in between Allergy skin tests, that he developed different allergies. Natural Balance (L.I.D.) are the best dry foods to look at when you are looking for nutrition without all the things that cause the allergies to make your dog miserable. And Chewy is the best place to get those items!

Works well

One of our dogs had some stomach issues the last few weeks. We changed his food several times and after a day on this food his poop firmed up and is more solid.

Finally, a dog food without chicken meal!

Our gsd had very loose stool and gas. We tried every dog food and finally tested him for food allergies. Turns out he is very allergic to ground chicken, as in chicken meal (which has ground bones and everything else!). This food has no chicken meal or chicken fat. No more loose stool, gas. Problem solved. Interesting thing is he is not allergic to chicken, just the ground stuff. Also, be careful as some of the other dog foods, like some salmon and other fish dog food has chicken meal in it!

The formula changed and my dog won't eat it

I had one bag with the redesigned "logo" that was fine, but the second bag that I bought, I immediately saw that the kibble was different. The old formula had darker, smoother kibble. This new formula is drier, more brittle, and a lighter color as well. My dog is allergic to beef and chicken, and I have never seen her more excited and enthusiastic about eating ANY kibble until this formula -- that is, until they changed it. Now she won't eat it unless I sprinkle cheese or break up other treats on top and mix it in, and even then, it's 50/50. It's one thing to redesign a package, it's another to change the formula for the kibble and not say anything. I am fully disappointed in Natural Balance and will have to find yet another kibble for my dog, whose allergies have been making life stressful for both of us. I thought I found the perfect solution and am now more frustrated and disappointed than I was before we started buying this.

My girl didn't care for it

This was our last attempt to find a grain and poultry free option that also is acceptable for diabetics, unfortunately it was a fail. My girl wouldn't touch it, she likes the other bison and sweet potato and the salmon and sweet potato varieties of natural balance alright though.

The new formula/bag is terrible

My dog isn’t eat all of his food and I was starting to worry that something was really wrong with him. His allergies have started to flare up too, which is why we chose this food; it’s the only one that doesn’t make him have flare ups. I found a bag of the old formula and he’s eating again. How can we get the old formula bags? Are there any left in back stocking?

Too much fiber ?

Dog was needing to poop constantly on this food. Wonder if too much fiber or low quality ingredients

Healthy, clean

My pure bread yellow lab responded well to this food from about 2 years of age until the day he passed. His fur was soft until he was 14 years old. His bowls were normal and easy to pick up, easy on his tummy. Highly recommend !
