Rated 1 out of 5 by from Address the issue or lose customers There has obviously been a change in your supply chain or process and it needs to be addressed in a manner other than a form letter. Do you physically manufacture this product or is it being produced by another company? Do all of your ingredients from the United States or do you source outside of the U.S.? Do you have a list of authorized dealers / retail stores? Do you know if anyone has every produced counterfeit Natural Balance? When you get a bad review, why not ask where it was purchased, when it was purchased and what it the lot number? Form letters just say that you really don't care. I also tried to sign up for NB newsletter and when I entered my dog's age, it notes that he was not eligible at 10 years old. Does this mean that once my dog gets old that you don't really care? I have previously been very happy with your product and have recommended it to everyone, but I am now seriously losing faith.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this formula. My dog is rather picky, so I have to try new things at the risk of wasting it but trying this turned out to be a blessing. My dog loves it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Label Change....Why? Why was the label changed from Bison,and Sweet Potato to Sweet Potato and Bison? Is there more sweet potato and less meat in the formula now? Does it have to do with the DCM and taurine investigations?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kibble change I agree that the kibble has changed. The most recent bag we purchased is lighter in color and smaller. My dog also has thrown up several times to the point that we had to stop this food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Agree with Kibble change I have been feeding my dog this for the last few months (he is a 10 Month old Bouvier) and our most recent order from October 15th definitively has a different kibble size and texture to it. Over the past few weeks he has started to develop gas that I believe is related.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Change in Kibble I have been feeding my dog this kibble for several years. The last bag I purchased was a different size and color kibble. Since eating from this bag my dog has been very sick. What has changed? Is it possible the wrong food got put in the wrong bag?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved my dogs life! My dog just turned 12 years old and is very healthy. When he was around 3 years old he almost died from food allergies. He had bloody stools for 15 months, multiple testing and nothing I tried seem to change. Until one day in a pet store a sales person suggested I try the LID Bison and Sweet Potato. He has been on it since with no problems with digestion or bloody stools. He is frequently with other dogs in the family and they are fed the same food and they love it! Please don't stop making this food as I don't know what I would feed him. Chicken and gluten seem to be the culprit and most dog products have some form of chicken in them. Thank you for making a product without chicken.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A couple of loyal dog's honest review We LOVED this dog food. My shih tzu mix has always been a picky eater and we always struggled getting her to eat 2x a day until we switched to Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Bison. When we got our cavalier he also loved the food. It was not until last week that we went into our pet store to pick up out food, we grabbed the food and took it home. I opened the bag and the kibble was darker, I didn't think it was a big deal until both my dogs refused to eat it. Our 1-year-old dog, the cavalier, eats anything and everything, but he refused to eat it. He has been very sad the past week because getting his food is a happy daily ritual. We took the bag back and got a new bag hoping it was just that bag. It wasn't. We took the 2nd bag back this morning and decided to switch brands all together, upon figuring out the recipe is different by store employees. We are very sad about switching because we have always regarded Natural Balance as a great brand, but it was great to see how happy our dogs were when we opened a completely different brand of food.

Questions

What size/shape is the kibble? My aging pug has a hard time with small round bites. He does better with flatter or squarish shapes.

Asked by: ancientpug
Thank you for your question. The kibble is flat and round.

Is this food recommended for dogs who have a tendency to develop bladder stones?

Asked by: Paul
You would need to ask your vet if this pet food would be an option for you he/she would be able to give the correct medical advice since the vet may want your Furry Friend on Perscription food only.

I have two 7lb Chihuahuas and I'm worried the actual food may be too hard/large for them. How large is each piece of food and how hard is it?

They obviously have tiny teeth and mouths so I'm on the search for food that is tiny and somewhat soft. Thanks for your time.
Asked by: Jco
Thank you for your question. The dog food is a smaller size and it is hard like a normal dog food.
