    Highly Recommend this Dog Food

    By on

    I've fed my dogs Natural Balance for several years now and I highly recommend it. My dogs had beautiful coats - even in their old age, and the grain free formula solved allergy issues in one dog and stomach issues in my other dog.

    My dog doesn't like this new formula

    By on

    After reading these reviews, I did not know that the formula in this food had changed. I noticed the weight difference, and then saw that the bag is now 6 pounds lighter than before. Easier to lift with my bad back, but very unhappy about the price, considering it's down 6lbs and only $5.00 less. My 12 year old German Shepherd has been extremely picky with his food recently and now I know why. I need to add more canned food into his bowl for him to eat it. I wish Natural Balance would leave things alone.

    NB stopped making my usual food

    By on

    I used to eat NB Original Ultra Whole Body Health with Healthy Digestion for Puppies to Adults. Per NB, they reformulated that product into this one. I can be a finicky dog with an easily upset tummy, so I was a bit worried that NB changed my food after at least ten years of me eating it. Fortunately, I've been eating this for two weeks now with no ill affects and I scarf it down. The kibble is the same size as my old food, so I didn't notice a difference. My human is grumbling that it costs about the same as my old food but is 6 lbs less. I told him "Tough!" I'm a 50 lb beagle/spaniel mix. I've been eating NB for most of my 13 years. I'm still active, alert and no serious health issues. My I used to eat NB Original Ultra Whole Body Health with Healthy Digestion for Puppies to Adults.

    Replacment for the Ultra Prem. Bites

    By on

    I have been feeding my dogs Natural Balance Ultra Prem. Bites for 8+ years. I noticed Chewy and our local stores started to run out. I contacted Natural balance and they told me it was being replace with this, now grain free. I tried it and the dogs don't seem to notice a difference. Still the same great food as before. My only issues is the smaller bag which means I have to order it more. *** Side Note: for those who used to feed there dogs the Ultra Prem. Large breed formula, that had the extra vitamins for hip/joint support, Natural Balance told me that this new recipe all the size pellets have the same recipe now. None of them have the extra support anymore for hips/joints. So if you need I have been feeding my dogs Natural Balance Ultra Prem. Bites for 8+ years.

    New formula had us worried

    By on

    Our 11 year old dogs have been on Natural Balance almost their entire lives. Had switched to another brand for a Sr weight management about 4 months ago, and returned to find Natural Balance was changed. luckily the dogs seem to still love it.

    Disappointed

    By on

    I am so disappointed that Natural Balance discontinued their Ultra chicken and duck flavor. One of my dogs had been on it since she was a puppy (9 years total). We thought this would be the next best option but one dog won't touch it (the 9 year old) while the other gobbles it up. It is also more expensive for a smaller bag. We will look for other options.
