How many of you know the ingredients in your dog’s food? All of us want to do the best for our furry family members and want all of our babies on high quality food. I will freely admit, while I have had pets most of my life, it wasn’t until the about four years ago that I had a clue about pet food. While we have been constantly educating ourselves about food since our first malamute came into our home, it wasn’t until we discovered Ivi had food allergies that the heavy research truly began. Boy were we surprised when we learned how much marketing there was in the pet food industry, most of which were buzz words and really said nothing about the actual quality of the food. For example, we found ourselves wondering “what is turkey meal doing in bison pet food?” Luckily, while we were doing our research, we were introduced to the food that truly changed our Ivi’s life – Natural Balance®.

Why I Believe in Natural Balance

When Ivi was still a small puppy, she had an upset tummy that no one could figure out. We were to the point of testing for a food allergy since we couldn’t pinpoint what was making our puppy so sick. It was when we were visiting family and she was given fresh turkey that everything fell into place. Around that same time, Reya (our first malamute), was asked to try Natural Balance. Having read about their limited ingredients diet made with simple formulas, we thought it sounded perfect for our Ivi. Best of all, this high quality food was made with only premium quality ingredients and designed to support muscle health and healthy digestion for dogs of all ages.

On Natural Balance, our sweet girl was thriving. No longer was potty time a nightmare (or a total surprise to her) and she had so much energy that she was driving our older dog crazy. Today, Ivi is still eating Natural Balance and enjoying a variety of single source protein recipes that are perfect for making sure her nutritional needs are being met. Best of all, since Natural Balance is designed for dogs of all ages, Rylie grew up eating her limited ingredients food as well, making sure that we had two very happy malamutes in our household!

Natural Balance’s Premium Ingredients

Part of what puts Natural Balance above their competition is the Buy with Confidence™ Promise. This promise includes 4 pillars – premium quality ingredients, safety testing, nutrition experts, and 100% satisfaction. Part of their dedication to making sure pets have the best nutrition is making sure that every batch of their high quality food is made with only premium quality ingredients. When you buy a bag of their food, you know that you are never getting food that:

  • Never contains artificial flavors (only the best from nature).
  • Only contains natural preservatives in finished products & ingredients (eg: rosemary extract, citric acid, mixed tocopherols).
  • Never contains wheat, soy, or corn (all of which has been shown to cause food sensitivities)
  • Never uses chicken or poultry byproduct meals.
  • Grain free food & treat options too!

To Natural Balance, pets only deserve the best premium quality ingredients that include high quality animal proteins such as chicken, lamb, salmon, and venison, along with highly nutritious grains and ingredients that are great for every dog. Take a look at the ingredients used in Natural Balances various formulas in the infographic below!

Natural Balance’s Commitment to Quality

If there is one thing I have never worried about with our girls eating Natural Balance, it is the safety of their food. As part of their Buy with Confidence™ Promise, they believe that the best food is not only healthy, but safe as well. For this reason, they test every batch of Natural Balance food and treats in their state of the art laboratory. Best of all, they don’t just do one test on every batch of food, but nine tests. You read that correct, NINE safety tests. These tests are also performed by highly qualified microbiologists and chemists. One of the things that we think is cool too is that you can see the safety testing results of any batch of food on their food on the Natural Balance website. You can learn more about the Safety Testing Process they use to test their food here!

    I have heard this is good food. I know it sure sounds good from reading your review.

    I became more aware of the ingredients in my dogs food a few years back when there was a recall on a certain brand of food (not the one we were using). So many brands use grains & fillers as the main ingredient – single proteins should be the main component of a dogs nutrition.

    I love that Natural balance contains ingredients I can pronounce. I want to feel good about the food I feed my dog.

    Premium quality ingredients are most important to me. I want to know that I’m feeding my dog food that is good for them and doesn’t have a lot of fillers in it.

    It is very impressive the difference that a quality and natural food can make in the health of our pets. They react to all the fillers and artificial ingredients too.

    This sounds like great pet food to feed for canines of any age, id love to recommend this product to my friends and family.

    Natural Balance sounds like fantastic pet food. I like that it does not contain by-products that can be harmful to our pets. So many pet foods claim to be all natural, but turn out to be false claims. One of those companies which I won’t mention by name is involved in a class action lawsuit because they lied about their “all natural” ingredients. Your dogs look so healthy that I can tell Natural Balance is good for them.

    I would only feed my pets a natural food like Natural Balance. I believe pets do need the healthiest foods possible in order to live a wonderful life. Hopefully preventing premature diseases.

    Ingredients matter when it comes to pet food. I’m also impressed with all the safety testing they do.

    I’ve used Natural Balance a few times over the years and always thought it was a good food. I don’t currently feed it, but that’s because I’m happy with what I feed now. I know there was some hub bub about Natural Balance being sold to Del Monte, but people tend to panic and not wait to see of changes, good or bad. And now I guess they sold to Smuckers now? Either way, I haven’t heard anything bad. Good thing about being part of a big company is they have more resources at their disposal.

    • Susan Bewley April 2, 2017 at 5:09 pm - Reply

      Yes, their parent company is Smuckers. 🙂 I think the big thing that most people don’t realize is that it also gives them more resources for testing and safety. From my understand, Natural Balance has always been run as its own company and they use their resources to better help pets to make sure there are quality ingredients, proper testing, and protocols to make sure their ingredients are the best and safest for dogs of all sizes.

    What a sweet pup! We have two fur babies (an American Eskimo and an Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua mix), and I would do anything to keep them around and healthy as long as possible!

    I have not heard of this brand. Judging from the ingredients, I would not hesitate to feed it to my dog.
