PRODUCT INFORMATION

Due to a shortage of potato protein, we have added pea protein to our L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Sweet Potato & Bison and Sweet Potato & Venison Formulas. Peas, as a part of the legume family, are a unique, high quality protein not commonly found in pet foods; making it an ideal ingredient for dog's with food sensitivities. We have been feeding the new formulas to our own Natural Balance® pets and it has continued to produce the same exceptional results as the current formulas.

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® Sweet Potato & Bison and Sweet Potato & Venison Formulas with Pea Protein. The change should be done over a 5 to 7 day weaning period.

The Adult Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® L.I.D.

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.
