Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inconsistent quality - disappointing I’ve feed my dogs this product for over 8 years within the last year the quality has gone down significantly. One time you buy the food is dark in color and oily, the next it’s light without any oily substance. On occasion the smell is awful! I’ve had to return several bags to more than one retailer. When dry my dogs instantly have diarrhea, gas and become itchy over a few days. For the price and the namesake I expect consistency. I’m to the point of giving up and going to another brand. So disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Formula Issues I am sure the formulation change was done to enhance nutrition, but unfortunately, I was feeding my dog the original formula due to allergies. After eating the new formula my dog is now severely itchy and has a lot of acid reflux. I will be looking for a different food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gave my dog diarrhea My dog was eating homemade dog food with chicken and rice, I decided to buy this dog food to get her accustomed to eating kibble as well as the home made food. This food has made her have diarrhea for more than a week and today she threw up. After reading reviews it’s clear that this formula is not right and the company keeps pasting the same lame response to all feedback.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be great, new formula is subpar I have fed this dog food for years. Loved that it was a food that worked for my sensitive stomach dogs while still having grains. However after the formula change my dogs hate eating it and keep throwing up. Luckily I have been able to find bags of the old formula, but looks like I will be finding a new dog food once those run out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Formula—terrible! My two miniature poodles thrived on the old formula for years. They hate the new stuff, sometimes walk away from the bowl without eating, and these are dogs who NEVER walk away from food. We transitioned to it slowly, as recommended, and it still gave them diarrhea. We like Natural Balance, so we’ll try the limited ingredient chicken and rice next.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure WHY It was changed My dog has allergies and was placed on this diet by his veterinarian. He is scratching himself raw now. I do not understand, the ingredients do not show his allergens, but the formula is all that has changed in his world. Great, another product off our list. I rate as “average” because the other dogs still look good with this food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Formula Fails My Fido My dog was put on this food by my Vet 8 years ago because of a food allergy that was causing him to constantly itch and scratch. We opened a new bag of your "new formula" and my dog is having serious food allergy issues again and I now have to find him another brand of food. You have lost me as a customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible My dog now vomits his food. I am glad to hear that the change in formula is the culprit.

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?
Asked by: Bob
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.

Been feeding border collies soft swiss cheese

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?
Asked by: FDunn
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.

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:

Adult Dogs

Benefits:

  • Quality ingredients provide sources of protein (lamb meal) and fiber (brown rice)
