A Natural Dog Food We Can Trust #WeBelieveinNB

With all the nasty pet food recalls we've seen recently and concern about where pet foods are sourced and made, it’s critical to get our pet food from a trusted source.  

I'm an avid pet food label reader, I make it my business to research what's in my pet's food and where it comes from.  I've always trusted Natural Balance Pet Food®.  I've been feeding Icy Natural Balance Pet Food for several years now.  Their food is made with premium quality ingredients like fruits, vegetables, and high quality proteins. Most importantly, I know it's safe for my pets. 

I want only the best quality pet food for my dog Icy!

This post is sponsored by Natural Balance® and the BlogPaws® Professional Pet Blogger Network™. I am being compensated for helping to share our thoughts about why we believe in Natural Balance as a quality food for our dogs, but Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Natural Balance Pet Foods is not responsible for the content of this article

I first discovered Natural Balance at a Pet Festival when Icy was young. I liked what they had to say about their commitment to the Quality, Nutrition, and Safety of their pet food, (and I've always liked Dick Van Patten!), so I took a few samples to try.  Icy, my finicky eater loved it, she scarfed down every morsel!  Icy is definitely a Natural Balance Dog, she loves every formula and variety of their food!  I've never found a Natural Balance formula that didn't impress me, or one that Icy didn't go bonkers for!

Natural Balance knows that the best pet food not only has to be healthy and delicious, it has to be SAFE.   With Natural Balance pet food, I know I'm feeding Icy high quality food that's safe for her. They even stand behind their food with an outstanding Buy with Confidence™  promise!  If you're not 100% satisfied with the Natural Balance pet food you've chosen, one of their Nutrition Experts can help you find the Natural Balance formula that's just right for your pet, OR they'll refund your money.




You have to see their Buy With Confidence promise, it's so impressive!  This is a company that really Get's It.  They have such a strong commitment to Quality, Nutrition, and Safety! That's what I want for my pets and I know it's what all of you want for your pets too.

Natural Balance believes so strongly in safety testing, they perform 9 different safety tests on every batch of food and treats in their state-of-the-art laboratory before it goes out the door.  They take it a step further by sharing those test results.  You can actually enter the Product Date Code Information from your bag of food online and get the test results!   How many pet food companies do THAT?? 

Natural Balance's test results for one of my bags of Natural Balance Pet Food, the L.I.D. Sweet Potato & Fish dog food!  This is a snapshot from the actual test results report!


Why do I believe in the quality of Natural Balance Pet Food so much?  Let Me Count The Why's!

** PREMIUM PROTEINS like Salmon, Chicken, Venison, Lamb, & Duck

** NUTRITIOUS VEGETABLES and GRAINS like Sweet Potato, Brown Rice, Peas, & Garbanzo Beans 

** NATURAL PRESERVATIVES and INGREDIENTS like Flax Seed, Taurine, & Salmon Oils


What you'll NEVER find in Natural Balance pet food are Artificial Flavors, Chemical Preservatives, Soy, Wheat, Corn, By-Product Meals, or other undesirable ingredients!


Visit the Natural Balance Premium Quality Ingredients web page for more details about the wonderful high quality, nutritious ingredients in their food!  Once you do, you'll definitely want to try Natural Balance Pet Food!

Natural Balance dog food fits perfectly into Icy's healthy active lifestyle.
I want Icy and I to continue taking walks and hikes together for a long, long time.  I do everything I can to ensure she stays healthy and active.  We are what we eat, so feeding her high quality food is essential.  With an active lifestyle, she needs the premium proteins and healthy vegetables & grains in Natural Balance Pet Food!


WHICH NATURAL BALANCE FORMULA DOES ICY EAT?
On a daily basis, I feed Icy the Limited Ingredient Diets (L.I.D.) formula. I like that the L.I.D. food has simple formulas with limited ingredients.  It contains a single source protein and limited carbohydrate sources.  The L.I.D. diet helps her maintain a healthy digestion.

Icy loves all things sweet potato so I usually choose the Chicken & Sweet Potato or the Sweet Potato & Fish flavors.  I also like to mix the corresponding L.I.D. wet food with her dry food.  I like the variety and the extra moisture my dogs get with wet food.


For those of you who are interested in adding the benefits of raw feeding to your pet's diet, Natural Balance makes Wild Pursuit.  Wild Pursuit is a High Protein, Grain Free formula.  I had the opportunity to try it last year and I've added it to Icy's diet.  She loves the taste and I like having the ability to incorporate the benefits of raw food into her diet several times a month.

Natural Balance makes so many varieties and formulas of pet food, you're sure to find one that's perfect for your dog.  You can even chat live with one of their expert Veterinary Technicians for help in choosing the perfect formula for your dog's unique needs and preferences!

The holidays are coming!  One of the best gifts to give a pet lover is a handmade treat jar.  I made one for my neighbor last year and filled it with Natural Balance treats.  I loved it so much I made a second one for my own dogs!   
DIY Treat Jars are a thoughtful gift for pet lovers!

  6. I'm not sure if I've tried Natural Balance specifically but I'm always looking for the best senior foods for my dog, and I will soon be on the search - no doubt a long search - for something my new cat with severe food allergies. That I anticipate will be a journey.

    1. Oh, poor kitty having allergies. You might consider their Limited Ingredients line of food, I've heard several people with allergy prone pets have good results with it. You can also chat live w/ a Natural Balance nutrition expert via the web site for help finding the right formula for your cat.

  9. Where do I start? I have seen that food but to be honest, never looked into it. I love the ingredients, the single source protein and the fact you do a lot of research before you find something you trust enough. Being able to add a bit of raw food to their diet is another appealing prospect. I love the jar, what a wonderful gift to anyone on your list with pets.

  25. How awesome that Natural Balance performs 9 different safety tests on every batch of food and treats and consumers can enter the product date code information from their bag of food online to get the test results. That says a lot about quality control.
