Questions & Answers

24 Customer Questions

Can I get an updated on when this is due back in stock ?
Answer by zkittypJan 26, 2022
Same here they told me the 19th of January. That isn’t happening. This is really frustrating when you have cats that only eat this. I don’t think it’s cheweys fault though. Call natural balance and ask

Are ANY of your ingredients sourced from China? To include vitamins?
Answer by ChewyApr 23, 2018
The manufacturer will source their high-quality ingredients within the United States depending on availability. However, certain ingredients will need to be outsourced (i,e: Lamb, Venison, Duck, Rabbit, Vitamin Packs, etc.) to ensure top quality and freshness while meeting a reasonable price point for pet parents.

Is this AAFCO approved?
Answer by ChewyAug 15, 2021
This recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles.

what is the size of the kibble?
Answer by ChewyMar 12, 2021
The size of this dry cat kibble is approximately the size of a pea.

Peas before duck

This made my guy vomit about each time he had any of it. It was really bad. He did not tolerate it at all. I don’t consider it a quality LID food for sure. Unfortunately I purchased this before realizing duck came behind peas. I wouldn’t continue this food based on that anyway. We switched to rawbble salmon dry and stayed with tiki wet food and not one tiny issue since. We also tried natural balance LID in salmon and same exact experience.

Changed formula. Cats won't eat it now.

My cats have been eating this food for over 6 years without issue. I have a cat that is allergic to chicken, turkey, and salmon so finding food she can eat is difficult. Suddenly at the beginning of 2023, around the same time they changed the cost and branding, my cats stopped eating it and refused to touch it. After doing a lot of investigating, I realized they changed the ingredients when they got bought out by another company. Now I have to research another food for them. And my cat got so malnourished from refusing to eat that she nearly died. Kind of strange that all 4 of my cats refuse to touch it.

Boujee food for boujee cats

This is literally the only food my cats will eat. It gets expensive but the kitties are worth it!

true single ingredient cat food

Natural Balance duck limited ingredient cat food is truly a single ingredient protein for cats with food allergies. Hard to find that, even in bigger name cat food brands.

They love it, but it does not love one of them

I purchased this to try for our cats, one of whom has colitis due to food allergies. We've tried many foods and know that duck does well for him. I tried this when their other food was not available locally, and transitioned them from that to this new food over the course of a week. It was NOT a good decision. Something in this food caused him to have a horrible flare up from day two of the transition. Messy situation to say the least. They really love the taste, but I'd be hesitant if you're using this to help with an allergy situation.

My cats LOVE it

I have two cats, one of which is a diabetic with recurring pancreatitis, IBD, and food allergies. Trying to find foods he can eat (limited ingredient, novel proteins, not high in carbs...) has been an absolute nightmare. While this food is higher in carbs than he should be eating, it's a GREAT alternative to crunchy treats after he gets his injections :) he primarily eats a REALLY low carb canned food so that we can work these kibbles into his diet. I can't give him more than a few at a time, though; he'll scarf down a whole bowl and barely take breaks to breathe if he's given the opportunity. Because of his dietary needs, my other cat has had to adjust what she eats just in case he gets into her food. She loves this kibble more than any of the others she's eaten recently! Anytime either cat hears the rattle of something that could be kibbles, they come running for a handful.

Cat likes this, won't touch the canned

I bought this and the canned version of duck and green pea. My cat eats this but won't touch the canned food. I don't feed my cats dry food and only bought this so I'd have a LID treat I can give my cat when he's not eating at all. I am still looking for a LID canned food that my cat will actually eat.

Great Food

We have nine cats, one of our cats have some serious stomach issues and we needed to find a food that all of them could eat as we free feed. This particular cat food has been a game changer for us 10 out of 10 would recommend.

Crappy packing - bag opened in shipment.

Chewy mixes heavy items with bagged items with no padding. Canned items cut through the bag of cat food. I gave up on Chewy before, think I will again.
