Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product My 6 year old shih tzu developed a terrible allergy out of the blue. After many medications and food changes we decided trying fully vegetarian food. A month after we changed his diet his itching and scratching ended, his hives disappeared and he now is a very happy dog. I am greatful this food exists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best decision ever!!! I recently a month ago adopted a Russel chi terrier from a rescue shelter. At the time she (ivy) appeared normal with a great coat and not itching. So without knowing the history of the dog, the shelter would always give a bag of dry kibbles to take home. For about a week after she would eat the kibble but then lost interest in the food. Then I thought trying wet meat food. Toppings and so on. She wasn’t too thrilled. So, Then she started developing itching, rubbing her eyes and loss of hair around her eyes. I gave her Benadryl, but it would knock her out and nothing was clearing up. I didn’t like drugging the dog!! The vet told me that it could be food or environmental allergies. I decided to start with the food, I wanted to take out all the meats from the food. I came across this brand of Natural Balance Vegetarian Formula Dry Dog Food. I didn’t think she would be interested but I got a bag and fed her a bowl. To my surprise, she went crazy and gobbled every bit and still licking the bowl dry. Every time it’s feeding time shes just jumps and runs in circles for it!! It’s been over two weeks now and she just LOVES this brand!! Her eyes are looking so much better. She’s not itchy and has a load of energy like before! Thank you Natural Balance for the vegetarian food!! So worth it and I have my dog back with a wagging tail!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Alaskan Malamutes LOVE the vegetarian formula My dogs have sensitive tummies and the male has food allergies. I gave this a try after trying other kibble & he LOVES IT. He also eats BRAVO chicken blend raw as snack. My female was also having tummy troubles when I tried other dog food like the Merrick brand so I tried this and she LOVES IT. She prefers this kibble over the Bravo chicken raw. Their stools are beautiful no tummy issues. Both are very healthy. I supplement with KronchUSA cold pressed salmon oil (for joints & coat) and golden paste (as a preventative) too. They also eat healthy salmon snacks that have no preservatives from KronchUSA. Personally, I prefer a raw diet but its expensive so my boy eats equal amount of raw and this veggie kibble. I know it's crazy, but he loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog with meat allergy I am extremely grateful for this food. Our pug wast scratching and shedding and had created a baseball size area under her neck that was void of hair and bleeding. Our house was covered with fur as she constantly blew her coat. Vet tried everything including including several sessions of a probiotic and antibiotic regime. Then he sent us to a dermatologist. She told us our Cece was allergic to meat protein and suggested a vegan diet. It has been a blessing. No nor constant scratching. Her stomach is doing great. And she barely sheds. I’m implore you pleas never discontinue the food. Thank you for saving my dog from a lifetime of pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for rodents and birds I mix this in with my rats, mice, and birds food and they love it. The ingredients are perfect for them, not alone but added to their dry food along with other foods and fresh foods it works great. However I would never use this for a carnivorous animal such as a dog for obvious reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from vegetarian dry food I have a german shepherd that had a large lick sore. nothing stopped her from constantly licking it. I even made her wear a cone for months trying to get it to heal. I switched her to the vegetarian formula thinking she has an allergy responce and the sore started to heal. today the sore is completely covered with fur and she is a happy girl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves the vegan formula I’m vegan, and after much research, I chose to convert my dog too. I purchased this dog food and noticed he is more energetic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product my black lab loves this food. its made with quality ingredients that I believe are human grade. it can be wet and it makes a tasty gravy for him. he used to have a problem with dry skin he would stop on our walks to itch way too often. now, his coat and his health have improved! outstanding product. dogs are omnivores for a reason! for their health! what's better is the food doesn't contribute to the suffering and killing of other species of animal either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I have been feeding this dry and wet food to my multiple Chihuahuas for the past 8 years. This food is amazing, my dogs thrive. I adopt older sick dogs and I am convinced that by placing them on a vegan diet it not only enchances their quality of life but their health. I feed 1 scoop of dry with a small scoop of wet, mix it with hot water and they LOVE it. My dogs were all vegan years before I ever was. I thank my lucky stars everyday that Natural Balance created this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. My rescue husky has experienced digestion problems and allergies since we rescued him. A few months ago, we transitioned him to a vegan diet and he is doing wonderful- he LOVES it, (mixed in with a little veg canned food) and all of his allergies went away. He also no longer gets random spouts of diahrea. He's so much happier, and its nice seeing him without allergies. Affordable and easy to get! Love this food and the vegetarian canned food as well, as a little treat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thriving vegan dog My 12 year old terrier mix has been eating this food for 2.5 years now, and is doing amazing! When we first switched her her energy increased and her coat became so much softer! People always think she's a puppy, and are shocked when we say she is 12!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loveeeee Great price and great ingredients. My dog (unfortunately) had to become vegan due to a liver distinction and not being able to process protein, and Nature Balance's vegetarian formula has helped my Dog stay healthy, happy, and seizure free. My wallet and heart are happy too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative for allergies Our 1 year old sharpei mix began to exhibit allergy symptoms. After trying various types of meats in kibble without changes to his skin, we decided that it seemed any type of meat protein in kibble was the issue; maybe the problem is how it's processed. I tried cooking their food as an alternative but couldn't keep up with the quantity needs of 3 dogs of medium, large, and extra large size. I still cook their protein but add the vegetarian kibble. Not only is it a huge time saver from cooking full meals and trying to figure out if you're supplying everything they need, I know they are getting good vegetarian ingredients in this kibble and I can add small amounts of freshly cooked chicken or eggs to complement. Our dogs look and feel better than ever with this combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shih Tzu with allergies I have always used Natural Balance but my dog developed a meat allergy and all of the Natural Balance dog food flavors contained meat; since my 8 year old shih tzu loves Natural Balance products I am ecstatic they created a vegetarian formula! The only thing I would change is to make the vegetarian kibble for small breeds (with the small kibble bits)
