Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was amazing but changed My lab has allergies and I’ve been through many different foods to find the best thing for her. She did amazing on the venison and sweet potato formula until a couple weeks ago when I bought a new bag that had smaller kibble. I thought it looked different but didn’t think much into it until she started having digestion issues, throwing up and itching all of a sudden. I just want to know what they changed in this formula. I’ll have to switch her again and I’m not happy about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from something changed I have been feeding the venison & sweet potato formula to my lab for ten years. This past year I have noticed that sometimes the bag has smaller lighter colored kibble. The bags have nothing new about smaller bites. While my dog has not had any digestive issues he had terribly itchy skin this summer. What is going on?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved digestion and coat issues We’ve been buying NB’d limited ingredient food for years. We have a lab and the sweet potato formula really does keep his coat healthy. He developed a chicken allergy resulting in dry skin, which made us switch to venison. The limited ingredient also keeps Porter’s digestive system healthy. Good, healthy food equates to healthy dumps, simply put.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved our dog's digestion issues We were using another premium/high end protein centric brand with regional ingredients for 10 years. As our shepherd Collie x aged, he developed an intense insensitivity which to say the least was a significant medical issue. After experimenting carefully with other brands, we landed on this one which successfully addressed his issues almost overnight while following our vets recommendation for a limited ingredient diet. Very happy, and so is our dog who is full of energy and sleeping better. The only slight downside is his coat is less vibrant which is due to no fish products being in the food but it's a trade off we are happy to make, and so is he.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great switch for a dog with allergies. After chronic ear infections my vet told me to switch her food. My Labrador loves it. It’s the first dry food where I don’t have to mix something else In it to entice her to eat it. My only issue is that she has become constipated which has never happened on other foods. I was wondering if that is something that you get feed back on with this food? I read the fiber content, could it be that it’s not enough ? Any feedback or suggestions would be great. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dog loves it BUT My dog needs low fat diet and has become allergic to chicken. I tried the venison knowing it is a low fat protein. Unfortunately she is a very small dog and has been choking on the dry food because the nuggets are too large and she has few teeth. Wish they made it I small dog, like they do all the others.

Is the venison and sweet potato east to digest? I have an American bulldog and he sometimes gets bloat.

Asked by: Gg
Yes this is a grain free food so it definitely should be easier to digest.

Same as prescription food?

I have her on Royal Canin Potato and Venison wondering if this dog food is pretty much the same thing, without the prescription. The Royal Canin has helped with ear infections, swollen lips, and a lot of shedding, but according to the ingredients they seems the same.
Asked by: Jill
Thank you for your question. No, these are two different dog foods and you would have to consult your vet in regards to changing the food.

Do I need a prescription from my vet for your Hypoallerginic dog food?

I have him on Royal Canin Potato and Vension and I have to get a prescription from my vet to buy it and I think that is silly.
Asked by: Don
Hi there, our current line of foods we carry do not require a prescription.

I add boiled chicken to the dry dog food. Please suggest how cups I should adjust for my 50 lb medium built dog?

Asked by: Heidi
Why bother? Just feed the chicken formula and add meat to that. It will save you money. The venison formula is at least $10 more per bag. But otherwise, it depends on how much chicken. My suggestion is always this: Feed what you think is right, and next week if the dog looks fat, feed him less. If he looks skinny, feed him more. Old dog handlers' trick.

What is Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison Formula?

Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison 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. Fresh sweet potatoes and real venison meat provide high-quality nutrition without any artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.

For:

Adult Dogs

Benefits:

  • Fresh and simple ingredients (sweet potatoes and real venison meat) provide natural sources of protein and carbohydrates
  • Grain-free formula with limited ingredients make this an ideal food for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities
  • No artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors
  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids promote healthy skin and coat
  • Formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) dog food nutrient profile for adult maintenance.
  • Made in the USA

How it works:

Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets are specially formulated to help reduce allergic reactions in dogs with food sensitivities. By using fresh protein sources and quality carbohydrates not found in many other dog foods (such as sweet potatoes and real venison meat) these simple ingredients may help to rebuild your dog's immune system and reduce allergic reactions. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids help to maintain your dog's skin health and shiny coat.

Cautions:

None.

Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison Formula Directions:

  • Adult Dogs:Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison Formula, the change should be made gradually by replacing the current food with increasing portions of Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Sweet Potato & Venison Dry Dog Formula. The change should be completed after 5 to 7 days. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature, and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog's needs.
  • Working Dogs:Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. As the workload increases, the demand for protein and fat increases proportionally. Dogs in hard training will generally require twice the maintenance levels.
  • Older Dogs:As dogs begin to age, their energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for a less active dog.

Fresh clean water should be available at all times
