Great Food for my 3 large dogs
I have 3 picky eaters with different needs: Bear, Brutus, and Scarlett. Bear and Brutus both get food allergies so I have to be careful on the contents of the food- Brutus and Scarlett are found to have issues with chicken and certain foods cause Bear to dig at his ears and paws. As far as taste goes, Bear and Brutus are super picky on what food they will eat- The Bison and Sweet Potato is by far their favorite. Scarlett will walk away from food if it's not up to her standards, but dives right in when it's "dinner time". My dogs have been on this food for ~4 months and so far so good- they're still happy with the flavor, haven't had any allergy issues, and have maintained a healthy weight.

Saved my dog from endless scratching!
Since my female GSD was 3 months old she has been scratching and biting non-stop to the point where she pulled out patches of fur on her sides and under belly. Vet visits led to prescriptions that only temporarily relieved her discomfort and complicated bathing regiments that were hard to implement. After extensive research into low allergy diets, I decided to give this food a try. I started with the sweet potatoes and fish variety which she didn't prefer and gave her very foul smelling excrement, but after settling on this food she has never been better. This food dramatically decreased her scratching and her fur is growing back in her bald spots. I encourage anyone who is struggling with allergies to give this a try, especially before turning to the allergy panel vets suggest which are costly and the results are wishy washy. Might as well give this food a try since your pet has to eat anyway over paying the 200$ for the test. Just remember that when doing a new food trial (especially for allergy pets) you need to give the food at least 8 weeks and feed NOTHING else during that time which could trigger a reaction- no treats or human food. I even prefer thi sover prescription diet options which I can get for free as a veterinary student. Best of luck!

My dog is part shar-pei with dry skin issues, this food does wonders for her coat. Not to mention she absolutely loves it and has been eating it for about 2 years now! Great dog food.

Makes Allergic Dogs Happy!
Amazing food for dogs with allergies. Queenie loves it and who knew Bison would help her get rid of the rashes and scratching she used to have. I think this meat must be amazing for her coat as it is shiner than it has ever been. Love Natural Balance for making amazing food for allergic dogs! My Queenie gives it a royal four paws up!
