Questions & Answers

26 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

Why does it contain salmon oil? That defeats the purpose of a limited ingredient diet.
Answer by ChewyOct 20, 2017
The Salmon Oil in the Natural Balance formulas are an additional source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids and do not contain the protein causing allergen.

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.

Will it upset my cats stomach to alternate between the different flavors of Natural Balance cat food?
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2017
While it's safe for your pets to rotate their diet, we always recommend mixing the new recipe with their previous one. That way it's introduced to your pet's tummy slowly.

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.

Five stars not enough

My part Maine coon kitty Floyd has lots of allergies and had struggled with chronic diarrhea for YEARS. No exaggeration. My cat-only vet was baffled and so I began boiling chicken and using Royal canin prescription kibble at the recommendation of that vet. Still no resolution. Just frustration and sadness. And Floyd was sad too! Zero pep. Finally I decided to try to learn what I could and found out CATS CAN BE ALLERGIC TO CHICKEN AND SOY! This was news to me. I found this brand and all is right in the litter box again. Finally tasty food simple nutrition that gave my kitty his joy back.

Cat Food RUINED my cats fur

The title says it all, my cat's fur has never looked this bad. It is as if they skipped on the vitamins or something. My cats have tried several brands of cat food, this is the only one that dried my cat's fur out. She looked like an abused cat; her fur was not silky like it usually is. She is a Chantilly Tifanny cat, normally she looks like she belongs on a commercial but not while she was eating this food. So disappointed, back to Freely rabbit dry food.

Great premium cat food

I have been feeding my cats, natural balance for several years now. One of my cat’s developed a food allergy to another premium cat food and I switch to Natural Balance cat food and they love it

We have bought this for Pepper before. He grazes through this in between meals.
