Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Food Allergies My dog (pitmix) has been having terrible skin problems for years. This food is the only thing that has helped to keep the itching, biting, chewing, and rashes under control. The brand also has the fish and sweet potato treats, which also help. My dog isn't super crazy about the taste but she gladly eats it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food Beside the fishy smell, this food is great. I have two pit bulls with allergies and this food has helped. It was recommended by our vet and they love it. I would recommend to any dog, especially with allergies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid All-around food I use Natural Balance and a few other brands (Sunshine Farms, Innova) on a regular basis. I have several dogs with several needs and this grain-free formula is solid. I'd recommend to pet owners looking for a solid, budget pet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boxer Colitis Cure The Boxer Rescue website recommends this food for Boxer's with colitis and sure enough, 4 month after adopting Heidi she had full blown 'soupy poops.' A quick switch to the Van Patten food and she's back to normal in every respect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy we found this dog food! My chocolate lab is on Sweet Potato & Fish and is FINALLY doing GREAT! I was beside myself with him for a very long time – he couldn’t keep anything down and was losing weight. Switched him to Natural Balance L.I.D. and he stopped throwing up! I didn’t know how much he was going to like fish – but he LOVES IT! He eats the dry, the cans and the treats – and he is doing great now – so healthy and at a good weight – and his energy is back. I’m so thankful we found this food so he can now live a happy life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped with allergies My 10 year-old beagle had skin problems: itching, scratching, hair loss, hot spots, etc. She still takes antihistamines in late summer/fall, but switching her to this fish sweet potato food has made a world of difference. She is much more comfortable, her coat is shiny, less flaky, and no red, bloody patches. She looks good, and I can tell she feels good. Her eyes are bright, she has more energy, she smells better and she seems to be getting younger!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend I must have tried 10 different brands of dog food with my Cavalier, but they all upset his tummy. Natural Balance Duck and Sweet Potato formula was tolerated from day one. He is now 2 1/2yrs old and happy and healthy.

Questions

Looking for a food to help lower my dog’s glucose levels as he is diabetic and the insulin isn’t really working for him yet. Keep getting tested, and keep having to increase the units of insulin. Haven’t found a good dosage yet. Need a good food. 

Asked by: Debbie
Thank you for your question. An excellent diet choice for a diabetic dog is a meat-based high protein food that is moderately fat and carbohydrate restricted. Carbohydrates, if included, should be low glycemic (for example, barley or sorghum). Ideally, at least 30 to 40% of the calories in your diabetic dog's food would come from protein and less than 30% of calories would come from fat and carbohydrates each. Further dietary fat restriction may be necessary if your diabetic dog has pancreatitis or blood fat elevations. Options to consider include Nature's Variety Instinct, Wysong, and Halo. To best control your diabetic dog's sugar levels, it is important to feed consistent meals at fixed times each day. Ideally meals are timed to the insulin injection — for example, feed your dog and give insulin within 1 hour to help combat the blood sugar rise from the food. So the insulin works effectively at each meal, it is best that each feeding contains the same amount of calories and the same ingredients so that the insulin will have an expected effect.
