Questions & Answers for Natural Balance Natural Balance Fat Dogs Adult Dog Food

Question

My Akita mix just turned 10 years old and has been on Natural Balance Reduced calorie dry food for years. She weighs 90 lbs .

She is a little overweight, not a gross amount. She is very healthy. Should I switch her to the new ""Fat Dog" Natural Balance formula? She is fed twice a day and gets one cup each time. This is per the vet's suggestion. How much of the new food would I give her? The directions suggest a lot more than she has been eating

This food has a lot of fiber and is 100% natural. I have four dogs and changed over about 6 months ago. All of my babies love it. Because there is a lot of fiber you may see an increase in bathroom habits - #2's. But it's a terrific food and I think your baby would love it. Get a small bag and give it a try. I keep mine on the "fat dog" formula and it has helped one of my chihuahuas slim down. Good luck.

I just switched my Jack Russel Senior 12 years to this do food as she is a heifty 16lbs. I only feed her once a day and give her 1/3 cup of this Fat Dog Dry Food and 2 table spoons of Natural Wet Dog Food Mixed in and she has been doing very well. In fact she begs less for food as this dog food keeps her tummy filled longer and she has more energy on her walks. I have been doing it now for 1 month and she has lost 1.25lbs and is still on a downward cycle in weight every week so far. The only offset is that the dry food is rather large for her and it would be great if it came in a small breed size or toy size. But she eats slow and chews longer so maybe that's more exercise well needed. Good luck.

Question

Why is my dog still fat even though I've been feeding her Natural Balance Fat Dog food?

I have been feeding my Chihuahua mix the Natural Balance Fat Dog food for a few months' now. She's still fat as ever! I feed her once a day: some canned dog food with dry Fat Dog food so she'll take a pill for skin irritation. She weighs about 14 pounds. The directions on the package says to feed OVER 1 cup but that's too much especially since I give her canned food. So I've been feeding her about 1/4 cup. Is that amount too little for her to lose weight? Please help! Also, I have another dog (English Springer Spaniel) on the same regiment but she's doing fine and both eat ALL their own food with nothing left over. Should I try another low calorie dry food?

Sometimes wet food has a lot of extra calories. Try giving her just the dry "fat dogs" food, and a "pill-hider treat" instead. I also have to give my fat dog meds, and I hide them in the chewy glucosamine treat - low calorie, and good vitamins - and feed him the dry food alone. He has lost 25 pounds so far, without exercise, so I know its the food. Also, make sure you are looking at the desired weight of your dog on the back of the bag...rememeber you want them to lose the weight, so you want to feed them the food amount recommened for the target weight you wish to achive, and not feed them the amount for the weight they already are, or they'll stay that same weight..

Personally I think you should check with your vet. The wet food may be to high in calorie or 1/4 cup may be too little. Also, as with any diet it takes few months to see results. Natural balance does make a reduced calorie wet. But again. Check with your vet Hope your pup feels better soon.

package says 250 calories - calories should be shown on all packages of dog food and on the descriptions on websites. I searched (in store) the amount in each weight management dry food and this was the lowest. My overweight pug eats it with no problem - but picky eaters might not like it as it has 7.5% fat whereas regular dry foods seem to be between 12 and 14. I feel it is better quality than most of the other weight reduction foods. I haven't weighed him lately but he did loose 2 pounds in the first week. There is another weight management food that is 260 calories with 7% fat and a lower cost but the ingredients are not quite as good. (sorry, not allowed to name other brands)
