Questions & Answers

23 Customer Questions

Is this Kibble round with a hole in the middle? Kinda like a small cheerio shape?
Answer by ChewyJan 03, 2022
This kibble features a disk shape. Please see the attached image for reference.

What is the max fat percentage in this food?
Answer by ChewyDec 30, 2019
This variety has a crude fat content of 12% on an as fed basis, minimum. The recipes are formulated to target the minimum fat content that is provided in the Guaranteed Analysis, any deviation from this as-fed percentage would be minimal. Please speak with your veterinarian to ensure this value is low enough to be a suitable diet for your pet.

Are there any organs in this recipe like chicken liver ?
Answer by ChewyOct 14, 2022
This recipe includes lamb and lamb meal. The lamb meal in our products are the muscle protein and some bone from the lamb that have been cooked, dehydrated, and ground into a meal form. This meal does not contain lamb by-products. The dehydrated form of the lamb protein source provides a more concentrated source of protein without adding excess moisture that is in the fresh lamb.

What is the feeding size
Answer by ChewyJan 13, 2021
The feeding chart may be located by clicking the “Feeding Instructions” tab, on the product page. This feeding chart is a general recommendation. It can be adjusted for your specific pet when also taking into account their age, activity level, etc. If you are uncertain of the amount, you can always consult with your veterinarian.

Switching back to NB:LID

My dogs have always done great on this food. My previous male dog would have recurrent acute vomiting episodes, where he would vomit bile in the middle of the day. Since switching to this limited ingredient, grain-inclusive diet, his vomiting completely went away. My female APBT mix was on it simply because my male was on it already. When he passed, I tried switching her over to some other "sensitive stomach/skin" foods, but she began to develop a gross discharge from her eyes. Since she's a pittie mix, she is pretty sensitive to allergens and is allergic to most shampoos and likely chicken. While she is doing "okay" on other foods, she seems to do best on this one, so we will be switching back. The price hike is steep, but for the quality and my dogs' health, I can't find better.

New pupper loves it!

Some of the Natural Balance came with my new dig, Libby, a rehomed miniature schnauzer. When it was gone I tried to introduce a different kind but my discerning diva wasn't having any of that. She is thriving & I love ordering all my dog food (for 2) plus supplies from Chewy. Best company hands down.

As usual Chewy is extremely fast and they do what they say they will do. The dogs like this a lot. Its a med. sized kibble and not too fattening 13% for weight loss for older ones. Nat. Bal has been around for a long time and is a good brand.

our dog won't touch it

Discovered our puppy is allergic to chicken which was what the breeder set him home with. Tried to switch him to this lamb and rice recipe over several days. Dog refused to eat this food. Was literally starving.

High Quality Product, Arrived Fast

I was happy to find a high quality “limited ingredient” dog food at Chewy when it looked like our dog had/has a food allergy. It was hard to watch her suffer so the sooner we could change her food the better. We were leaving for a trip so we had the new food delivered to our destination and it was waiting for us when we arrived. Our dog seems to be doing better on her new food, so thanks, Chewy!

Much better!!!

My dog is doing much better on this food. He used to get junk in his eyes and have soft stools. But he is much improved now! So thankful!

Natural Balance

WE have two Salukis and a Bischon. They love this food. They eat it twice daily with a moist product added for bonus flavor (lamb and rice also). This product is healthy and we find it attractive to our furry pups. They do not require encouragement to clean their bowls. We were instructed by our vet to remove all fillers/pea products and legumes from our dog and cat diet. This product is straight forward and high quality.

My dog is obsessed!

My dog has at times been indifferent about food, but not since we made the switch to this more natural/less ingredients food. She can’t wait to chow down now!

Limited ingredients

Bought this kibble (4lb) as I thought my dogs would love it. That's what I get for thinking. It's perfect size, smells ok, has zero chicken but my 6 pack of Frenchies hate it, even Prudence who will eat anything. Just can't understand it. Guess I should have tried beef maybe some other time. Usually get Orijen 6 fish and 3 love it but I really wanted the other 3 to have some dry kibble besides their wet food. Oh well on to the next. :(

Holes in bag/Ants all over inside and out

I have been buying this product for quite some time now and this time when i bought it it had what looked like hole punches in the bag and ants were all over the bag and inside of the box, then when i opened the bag ants were all inside as well! Very disappointed!
