What is Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Formula?
 
Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Formula is part of the Allergy-Free line of foods created for dogs prone to food allergies or sensitivities. This dog food limits the ingredients in your dog's diet which may help to reduce allergic reactions such as skin problems, upset stomach, or an irritable bowel. This formula uses a single protein source (lamb meal) and a single carbohydrate source (brown rice) without the addition of any artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.
 
For: Puppies and Dogs
 
Benefits:
For all breeds and life stages
Quality ingredients provide sources of protein (lamb meal) and fiber (brown rice)
Limited ingredients make this an ideal food for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities
Easily digestible
No artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors
Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids promote healthy skin and coat
Formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) dog food nutrient profile for all life stages.
Made in the USA

How it works:
Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets are specially formulated to help reduce allergic reactions in dogs with food sensitivities. By using fresh protein sources and quality carbohydrates (such as lamb meal and and brown rice) these simple ingredients may help to rebuild your dog's immune system and reduce allergic reactions. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids from canola oil and salmon oil help to maintain your dog's skin health and shiny coat.

Cautions: None

Natural Balance Limited Ingredients Diets Lamb Meal & Brown Rice  Formula Kibble

Directions:

Puppies: From six weeks to six months, feed three times a day. You may want to add a small amount of canned dog food for ease of feeding. The amount of canned dog food can be gradually decreased as the puppy matures. After six months, it is recommended to feed twice daily.
Adult Dogs: Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Formula, we suggest to start with the amounts recommended in the table below. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature, and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog's needs.
Pregnant Dogs: A pregnant dog requires little or no increase of food during the first 6 weeks of pregnancy. During the remaining 3 weeks, the demand for nutrients will gradually increase and the food intake should increase accordingly. During the 7th week, the food intake should increase by approximately 10% and by 20% during weeks 8 and 9.
Lactating Dogs: Lactation is the most nutritionally demanding period in your dog’s life. Immediately after whelping, the nutritional demand for the new mother increases by 50% compared to the maintenance level. Nutritional requirements are dependent on the size of the mother and the number of nursing puppies. So as not to overwhelm the digestive system, the lactating mother should be fed 3 or 4 times per day. As a guideline, we suggest the following schedule:

• After whelping, feed 50% above maintenance level—feed in 3 equal meals per day.
• During the second week, feed twice the maintenance level—feed in 3 or 4 equal meals per day.
• During the third week, feed three times the maintenance level—feed in 3 or 4 equal meals per day.
• During the sixth week gradually reduce the food intake back to twice the maintenance level—feed in 3 equal meals per day.
• During weeks 7 and 8, feed 20% above maintenance levels—feed in 2 equal meals per day.
Tip: We recommend a gradual introduction by replacing the current food with increasing portions of the new Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Formula. The change should be over a 5 to 7 day weaning period.

Great choice for dogs with allergies Our large breed has had allergies for years. After testing, we found out his list of allergies is almost a page long. The company cross-referenced his allergies against food brands and provided me with a list of brands to try. I started with Natural Balance and have stuck with it for several years. In addition, because of his allergies there are certain foods he is unable to eat. I have found Natural Balance offers more flavor options for him to enjoy. We also feed it to our two other dogs without allergies. 03/24/2012
YAY for this food! My lovely King Cavalier Elizabeth had an allergy test and she is allergic to SO MANY THINGS, including Potatoes! Poor girl. BUT the good news is she is doing GREAT now on her Natural Balance Lamb Meal & Brown Rice! I am SO GLAD to have found this food that she seems to love – and her symptoms and scratching have disappeared. Such a great, healthy dog food for pups with issues. She’s usually on my lap unless she’s eating her Natural Balance – and my only complaint is that she almost loves the food as much as she loves me! I’m so glad she’s healthy now. THANK YOU Natural Balance. 01/18/2012
No more scratching I have a 5 year old Shih Tzu with allergies. He was always red and scratching. I put him on the Natural Balance Lamb Meal and Brown Rice and he is now allergy free. He used to vomit a lot but he doesn't anymore. I won't buy anything else for my furkids. 08/10/2011

Not eating

My White Mini.Schnauzer Meeka does not eat like she should. I have tried every major brand on her, dry and canned.
I was told by good sources to put her on a good dry dog food. Do not give her table scraps no matter how she begs, and she WILL eat her food, she called it tough love. I am going to get her Balanced Diet with Lamb and Brown Rice from Pet Meds payday.
Any suggestions?

Answer: 
Getting any pet to switch from table food to dog food is not an easy task. Yes the tough love effect can help and should work in the long run, but it is important for your furry pal to still have there daily nutrients. Sometimes mixing the dry food with some of the food they eat now might help the transition and slowly just get to the point where it is more and more dry food. It may also be a good idea to give them a daily vitamin to supplement the fact that they may not eat very much certain days. We hope this helps.

I always keep soft slices of swiss cheese to give to my two dogs (border collies) and I have been giving them 1 slice at everyone of my meals.

I heard something about this but did not believe it.

Can someone fill me in?
Also if I have been damaging my dogs vital organs is there anything to help reverse that damage if I stop giving them the cheese?

The same person that told me that told me that "greenies" are not good for a dog's vital organs. Is this true?

Answer: 
I am not aware of any reason not to give a border collie Swiss cheese. You can ask your veterinarian if he/she has heard anything. As to Greenies, there is no harm to a dog's vital organs. However, it is important to make sure the pet gets the correct size treat for the pet's weight.
