Natural Balance Dog Food Now Available At PetSmart #ad #PetSmartStory

Three weeks ago, I told you about our decision to switch Daisy’s food. She had been on a big brand that we decided to switch from because we wanted to switch to a better brand. So, we switched to a better brand that she ended being allergic to. So, we decided to switch her to a limited ingredient diet after some research and speaking with PetSmart® employees. We decided to go with Natural Balance® Potato and Duck Formula. We chose the Small Breed Bites since, after all, she is a little thing. 😉

Switching Daisy To A Limited Ingredient Diet

As you know from our post three weeks ago, Natural Balance products are now available at PetSmart. So, this made them easy to find. We picked up quite a variety of Natural Balance products, not just for Daisy Baby, but also for Puppy Mister and Hoss {our cat}. I mean, you got to treat all the babies well, right? 🙂

We learned that some of the things that dogs might be allergic to in their food is chicken and grain. That makes perfect sense. When we switched Daisy the first time, we switched her to a food with chicken. Then the sneezing began. So, we switched her to the Natural Balance limited ingredient diet {grain free} slowly over two weeks, mixing it with her previous food. This week she has been eating nothing but Natural Balance Potato & Duck Formula and I have noticed that she does not sneeze nearly as much. I am hoping that it will stop completely here in the next few days to weeks.

Natural Balance: Straight From The Animals’ Mouths

One thing is for sure though. All of the animals love all of the Natural Balance foods. The Wild Pursuit canned foods are really interesting. Just like people, I am sure animals would like to change it up a bit. This is definitely a way to get variety in your life. I think the dogs’ overall favorites are the bag of Potato & Duck Formula limited ingredient diet food, as well as the smaller portions of the wet dog food in gravy. That really looks like human food and the dogs go pretty crazy over it. They also really went wild for the treats. I think Hoss really loved the single servings in gravy, as well, but he chowed down on all of it. We would purchase any and all of the Natural Balance foods and treats again.

  1. My dog was allergic to dog food and we needed a special formula prescribed by the dr. I didn’t realize that PetSmart had so many natural brands. When we get a new pet we will check them out.

  2. Natural Balance is awesome food. We feed it to our dogs, and they always feel great.

  3. Daisy is just the cutest little dog! I am glad she is doing well on Natural Balance.

    Your dog is super adorable! I love that pet food is so much more high-quality now verses years ago.

  11. Aww! I’m going to have to give their cat food line a trial run. Natural Balance sounds like a great brand.

  12. I need to be better at what I feed my dog. I’m a new owner and still trying to figure it all out.
