"Leave It To The Experts" For Safe, Great Tasting Pet Food #WeBelieveInNB

Leave It To the Experts
 

I hear people say all the time, "Don't worry about that, Leave It To the Experts". We live in a hurried, worried society. As a highly engaged, interactive pet parent, Mommy has told me there are so many things to be worried about and try to figure out when it comes to me and my needs. Safe, nutritious pet food made with premium, high quality ingredients is a big concern for her, as well as for most pet parents. Thanks to Natural Balance® and their Limited Ingredient Diet, Mommy doesn't have to worry about how safe and nutritious my dog food is for me. Natural Balance has experts at all levels of the dog food process, so she can buy it with confidence and is rest assured I am eating well.

My Journey With Natural Balance


I started eating delicious tasting Natural Balance back in November. A few of my dog friends had told me at the dog park how good it was, and they really had my mouth watering at the thought. Then Mommy heard about their high standards for Premium Quality Ingredients and how important the Safety of their Products were to the company. We both decided we wanted to work with them and give them a dedicated try. Over the last 4+ months, we've had a fantastic journey with Natural Balance. The road has been paved with learning and trust, and filled with yummy food!

Heaven on a Shelf


That first shopping trip to purchase Natural Balance's Limited Ingredient Diet dog food was not only an eye opener, but it was so much fun!! I had no idea they had so variety for each recipe to choose from. As you know, I love sweet potatoes and chicken, so when I saw that they had a specific small breed L.I.D. recipe called "Sweet Potato and Chicken Formula", I thought I'd died and gone to dog food shopping heaven!! I had Mommy get some of everything so I could sample it all, haha! And I've been a super happy girl ever since. If you haven't already, make sure you read about our first experience shopping for Natural Balance dog food, and don't forget to read follow up blog post #2 about building confidence at mealtime and post #3 about showing your pet you love them with great food. The entire series is a dog food love story worth reading and repeating!

Is My Food Safe to Eat? You Bet!


Mommy has learned that Natural Balance goes above and beyond for pet food safety. They don't just use high quality ingredients and then put it all together in a manufactured dog food and send it out the door. Natural Balance has a rigorous 9-point safety testing protocol that every single batch of kibble (as well as soft food & treats) has to pass. The 9 potential dangers they test for includes Melamine, Salmonella, and Cyanuric Acid (a major culprit during the 2007 pet food recalls). Natural Balance Pet Foods doesn't want to leave anything to chance for pets like me, or for any one of your precious pets. That is a real comfort for Mommy because she treasures me more than anything!

Premium Quality Ingredients


Here's one of my favorite reasons to love Natural Balance: the Premium Quality Ingredients. The Natural Balance L.I.D. line of pet food is absolutely delicious, and perfect for pets like me who have food issues and need limited ingredient diets. L.I.D. means just that...Limited Ingredient Diet, so you can be sure there's no fillers, no artificial flavors, no 'by-product' meals (I mean, who knows what that even is!), and definitely no wheat, corn or soy, which can be high allergens for pets. Natural Balance L.I.D. pet foods use single source proteins (such as chicken and salmon), and only the tastiest, most nutritious ingredients (such as sweet potatoes, peas, brown rice, to formulate their food and treats. My friends at Natural Balance have perfected making such a great tasting kibble with so few ingredients that I stand with my paws on the kitchen counter shelf at every mealtime and "sing" to Mommy for my food! (Can you see me howling out a food love song in this photo?)

The Joy of Buying A Quality Dog Food with Confidence #WeBelieveInNB

As you know, I consider myself a dog food connoisseur of sorts, always searching for great tasting, nutritious dog food that Mommy trusts to be safe and well balanced for my delicate little body's nutritional needs. Being the adventurous dog that I am, I've been on a nationwide quest for a great tasting dog food that has the following very important characteristics that both Mommy and I can agree on:
1. Single Source of Protein
2. Limited Ingredient Diet (LID)
3. Premium Quality Ingredients (it does make a difference)
4. Food that is free of soy, gluten/wheat, and corn
5. Fantastic Variety of Flavors and Products
Sound like a pretty tall order? Well I've got great news!

After all my searching, I found everything I was looking for in Natural Balance® L.I.D. pet food and treats! L.I.D. stands for Limited Ingredient Diet, but don't let the word 'limit' fool you, because this food has no limit on variety and taste!!

Image of Pixel Blue Eyes' face as she talks about the dog foodI've never seen such a fantastic variety of not just flavors but types of dog food styles, plus treats, available just in one line of food. It's UNBELIEVABLE!! There's over half a dozen different varieties of flavors of the L.I.D. foods available that are made with premium quality ingredients, plus a number of different versions of the food, depending on what your dog likes, needs or just in case they want variety while still maintaining a consistent diet.

I was amazed at all the choices I had for just that one flavor though. There's dry kibble (as you know, I love my kibble!) for both large and small breed, then they have two different versions of canned food, and they have a really cool chicken and sweet potato gravy packets that is strictly pulled chicken, sweet potatoes and gravy. Plus they have treats that are so delicious, I'm always begging for some of those! They even have chicken and sweet potato glucosamine treats for older dogs like me who want to keep their joints healthy. I had Mommy buy some of everything because it all looked so good. And the price was very reasonable.

This food tastes SO good friends, you've got to try it yourself. Okay, get it for your dogs I mean and have THEM try it. Natural Balance really knows how to make a Limited Ingredient Diet taste delicious. These foods are simple formulas that encourages healthy digestion.
Simple does not mean limited variety. Just look at the range of food types you get with just one recipe, and there's several recipes to choose from. I love that they have everything from chicken to fish, all the way to venison. There's something for everyone's taste-buds and single source protein needs.
I love treats just like any other dog, and the Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Chicken Formula Treats are absolutely scrumptious! We bought the 14 oz bag of regular size dog treats, which are pretty big, so Mommy breaks one into smaller pieces for me since I have a little mouth. To me, that just makes me think I am getting a bunch of treats instead of just one. Of course, first she teases me a little bit and I do all my talking, singing and smiling for her because I love doing my tricks for treats for her! She loves making me happy and I love making her smile with my cute animated facial expressions.
These treats are crunchy, all natural and designed to support my digestive health.

My other favorite treat of theirs actually support my senior joint health, can you believe that? My Natural Balance L.I.T. Limited Ingredient Treats® Jumpin’ Stix®, which of course are in Chicken & Sweet Potato Formula, are so soft, chewy and delicious I literally jump to ask for them. They are formulated with Glucosamine and Chondroitin to help support healthy hips & joints, and I need that especially since I'm about to turn 9 years young. I am so happy that Natural Balance cares about my well being from my head to my stomach to my little toes.

The chat windows are in the lower right of the screen on every page. Mommy spoke with a very nice person named Shawna, who told us about how the L.I.D. foods help keep my digestive track healthy and shared their link on how to transition your pet to a new food, which of course should be done over several days. Their conversation was informative, engaging and of course, they talked about pets too!
