Do you considering yourself ingredient conscious when it comes to your dog’s food? I won’t lie – I’m a helicopter dog mom and worry constantly about Reya and Ivi’s food. No matter how much I may trust a brand (even natural pet food brands), I don’t even consider putting it in the cart before flipping the box or bag over to look at the ingredients. This has sometimes been quite comical with the girls’ food, especially when little 5’2 me is trying to balance a 30 lb bag of food.  Earlier this year, however, we were introduced to a new brand that had a variety of awesome foods perfect for dogs like ours – Natural Balance®. Having heard for years that they were one of the best pet food brands on the market, I was excited when we got to try their food, especially their new Wild Pursuit™ line (introduced in May) of food and treats.

For a pet owner like me who already feeds a grain free, high protein dog food to my girls, I was pretty excited to learn about Natural Balance’s Wild Pursuit Food. The whole idea behind this food is that it satisfies both dogs’ and cats’ primal instincts by offering them a high quality, natural pet food that is similar to their ancestral diet. While it may be a bit modernized, the ingredient mix is designed to mimic what pets would find in the wild. Each food is also a balanced blend of three proteins, giving your dog a highly nutritious natural food that that will drive them crazy during meal time. Best of all, their food has actual freeze dried raw pieces, something that dogs of all ages are sure to love!

As someone who only feeds natural pet food and pet treats, I think it is exciting to have a food available to the girls that is based on an ancestral diet.  Even the treats in the Natural Balance Wild Pursuit line are based on this principle. Both the Natural Balance Wild Pursuit Venison and Lamb Lung Bites are as natural as possible, being made to be high protein, gluten free, and grain free, giving your dog a low calorie treat perfect for training.

In our household, both of our girls love Natural Balance treats and each have their own favorite Natural Balance Wild Pursuit food that they enjoy. Ivi loves their Wild Pursuit Trout, Salmon Meal, and Tuna dry food, while Reya loves when she can have a real treat – Wild Pursuit Chicken, Turkey Meal, and Quail Dry Dog Food. Usually she is able to have this food when Ivi is in her crate napping, since our poor puppy has a sensitivity to turkey. With how much Reya loves their turkey food though, we can’t really tell her she has to go without just because her little sister can’t have it! Luckily, allergies are the only reason we have to say no to food, since all Natural Balance Wild Pursuit high protein dog food is designed for dogs of all breeds or ages, allowing then to enjoy this natural dog food.

    There are lots of “natural” pet foods out there right now. It’s good to know this one is a quality product.

    My dog Snuggles passed away in 2013. We had him for 14 yes & he was 16 yrs old when he moved on to doggie Heaven. He was a picky eater. This would of been so much healthier for him. Thank you for sharing!!

    Reya and Ivi look like they enjoy Natural Balance! I wonder if Natural Balance makes a cat food?! There are so many great natural products on the market for our 4-legged friends, that sometimes it’s hard to choose. Thanks for your review!

    I thought it was so neat, watching the television show “Inside Edition”, that Hollywood legend Dick Van Patten had devoted his time to developing a safe and quality line of dog food. It’s nice when you learn of your favorite celebrities devoting themselves to good causes. After having read about all of the surprising features on your blog about this particular brand, I will be sure to recommend it to all of my pet-loving friends!

    I’m not an animal person. I usually look for posts that don’t have the dogs in them because not owning a pet, I really don’t feel like I can comment. If your animals enjoy it, great. I’m not trying it!

    I’ve heard of Natural Balance but know it in name only. After this post, I’m going to look more indepth into this dog food.

    I’ll have to get some of the treats for my grandpuppies! (They are large-breed Great Pyranees weighing about 140 pounds each so we don’t want to give them unhealthy treats or food.)

    Thanks for the info!

    It’s important to pay attention to your pet’s food and treats. Ingredients and amount of protein are very important. I like that they offer so many varieties, too.

    Sounds like a good product; I’m always looking for a new treat for my pups.

    I think this would be something the dogs I baby sit for would really enjoy eating.

  37. hannah November 1, 2015 at 9:37 pm - Reply

    Yes it’s very important to read the ingredients in our pet’s food. Dogs and cats weren’t designed to eat carbs, they were designed to eat protein and fat.
    Products like natural balance are high quality and far superior to the cheaper brands – worth paying more for!
