Why MyDogLikes Natural Balance
As many MyDogLikes readers know, we rescued Harley when he was two years old. Not long after coming to live with us, Harley started experiencing some pretty scary health problems marked mostly by the inability to keep his food down. X-Rays, Ultrasounds, and several hundred dollars later, our Vet determined that Harley likely had developed a food intolerance. We were shocked to learn that unlike humans, food allergies/intolerances in dogs often have a cumulative effect; allowing them to eat the same food for years with no obvious negative effects. This was the case with Harley. One day he simply could eat no more.
We were given a simple recommendation by our vet: read the label and try to feed a novel protein. For us, this meant steering clear of chicken. Keeping in mind that this was over 7 years ago, we were shocked at how challenging it was to find food that met our needs as pet parents and our budget as graduate students. One day the fates aligned and we were given a free sample of Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diet.
Not only did Harley love this food, but the Limited Ingredient Diet (L.I.D) allowed us to isolate proteins and carbohydrates to see what agreed him. While this blog is primarily focused on the dogs, we weren’t at all surprised when the Limited Ingredient Diet worked best for our kitties sensitive tummies as well!
Food AND Treats
Maybe you have already found food that works well for your pup? Well we would be remiss to not touch on some of the other snack time goodies that Harley and Charlie found at PetSmart! Following all the same principles as their food, Natural Balance treats come in a variety of sizes and formulas for pups with all sorts of dietary needs!
This is BIG
As firm believers that pet parents need information and options when choosing the best foods for their pets, MyDogLikes is so excited that Natural Balance is coming to a PetSmart near you! With over 1,400 stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, PetSmart is the largest specialty pet retailer around. Now, pet parents from all around will have easy access to premium pet nutrition!
