Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be aware new ingredients!! Had no idea this bag was a NEW formula bag. We were giving my dog Benadryl everyday until I looked and saw the ingredients were changed! My dog is highly allergic to flour, yeast, and flaxseed, which are now on the top for ingredients. My dog is also allergic to rice, soy, and peas. This original recipe was the only food I have found that she tolerated. Bring back the old recipe. Please don’t change the dog treats. Those are the only ones she can have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of new formula!!!! I started my dogs on the fish and sweet potato a few months ago and it was working well. I bought a new bag of salmon and sweet potato , assuming it was the same thing and my dog has been so sick! Vomiting and diarrhea and very lethargic. I’m so upset that the formula was changed with no warning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back sweet Potato and fish My dog did well on the prior formula and now she is experiencing allergies and skin issues. Will be switching to a new brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yup..Can conquer with recent change causing issues Yet another customer backing up all the recent claims of issues since the formula change. The original formula of this food was our saviour as it took us months of trying various foods to finally find something that our dog liked and didn't cause an allergic reaction. Ever since the formula change his allergy symptoms have come back and he won't eat. Not sure how much you tested this formula before deciding to make the change but it seems maybe some more research could have helped. Unfortunately we're back to the drawing board.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy about food change After trying several brands for our dog we finally found Sweet potato and fish formula and it worked great! I’m so disappointed that it was changed to the Salm9n and sweet potato. We tried it, and our dog immediately had soft stools. I’m back to square one with her! Why change a product that had such great reviews! That was the reason I tried it, the reviews were fabulous, reviews aren’t so great now! Bring back the Sweet potato and fish, too many of our pets need that formula.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sweet Potatoe and fish Since formula change, I am changing companies. My shepherds did well on the old formula. One of them quit eating when given the new formula. Transitioning to the taste of the wild. She loves it. Price increase of Natural Balance is ridiculous. Especially when the size of the bag also got smaller. Very disappointed in a company I was loyal to for 11 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New ingredients made my dog sick I want the old ingredients back! My dog has a sensitive stomach and the sweet potato and fish worked for her. Unfortunately this new formula made my dog extremely sick resulting in vommiting and diarrhea. Very unhappy customer. Please bring the old stuff back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Formula Changed - Gives Dog Farts and Soft Stool Our dogs had been on the Fish & Sweet Potato formula for years. It solved a lot of allergy issues for our chihuahua (itching and soft stools). The formula recently changed from fish to salmon. Now our chihuahua is having gas and soft stools. We are not going to buy this formula anymore. Very disappointing, as it took a long time to find something that worked for our dog. Also, this is the second Natural Balance product that was "reformulated" and has become terrible (the first was the beef treat rolls). I no longer believe in this brand, which is a shame.

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.
