Natural Balance is pleased to announce the re-introduction of Duck Meal to our Potato & Duck Dry Dog formulas. As promised, after 18 months of searching for high quality Duck Meal to meet our rigorous standards, we have secured a consistent supply at the quality level we require. In March 2009, we removed Duck Meal from our products because of a shortage in Duck Meal at the quantity and quality needed to meet our standards. We are happy to be able to once again have this ingredient, as it will enhance the already outstanding performance of this product.

Since this is a slight change, we recommend a gradual introduction by replacing the current food with increasing portions of the new L.I.D. Limited ingredient Diets Potato & Duck with Duck Meal. The change should be over a 5 to 7 day weaning period. We have fed this formula to our own Natural Balance pets and have had great results.

PRODUCT INFORMATION


Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets
® Potato & Duck Formula
 is a proven formula for dogs with sensitivities based on our unique protein and carbohydrate blend.

Some dogs may be highly sensitive to commonly used proteins, carbohydrates and food additives in their diet. Sensitivity reactions can lead to irritable bowel, upset stomach, and a number of skin problems. Natural Balance® has created Potato and Duck formula for dogs with these food sensitivities. Our Potato and Duck formula combines fresh duck, a source of animal protein that most dogs have not been exposed to, and a source of carbohydrate not commonly found in dog foods, along with effective natural ingredients to help rebuild the dog's immune system.

Consult your veterinarian for specific weight recommendations for your dog. Remember, fresh clean water should be available at all times!


The Adult 
Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Potato & Duck Formula, we suggest to start with the amounts recommended in the Table. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog’s needs.

Pregnant Females (See Our Feeding Page for More Details!)
Minimal increase needed during first 6 weeks.  
Weeks 7, 8, & 9 increase up to 25%.

Lactating Females (See Our Feeding Page for More Details!)
Immediately after whelping, the nutritional demand increases by 50% compared to maintenance levels. Feed in 3 equal meals per day.

Working Dogs Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. As the work load increases, the demand for protein and fat increases proportionally. Dogs in hard training will generally require twice the maintenance levels.

The Older Dog As your dog begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for less active dog.

FEEDING MANAGEMENT

We recommend that you do not add vitamins, minerals or any other supplements, except upon the advice of a veterinarian. When switching your dog’s diet, the change should be made gradually, by replacing the current food with increasing portions of Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets™ Potato & Duck formula. The change should be completed after 5 to 7 days. The maintenance of proper body weight is most important for your dog’s health. Consult your veterinarian for specific weight recommendations for your dog. Remember, fresh clean water should be available at all times!
