I've been using Natural Balance Original Ultra for 3 years now. I have 3 dogs: 1 Beagle/Shepherd/Rott, 1 Dachshund/Beagle, and 1 Pomimo. It's not cheap, but I chose Natural Balance for a few reasons:
1) One of my dogs is sensitive to corn, it gives her terrible gas. There is no corn in this dog food, which keeps us both happy.
2) First ingredient is 'Chicken' + it doesn't use animal by-products.
3) Formulated for all life stages - I've been able to keep this as a staple diet from the day I brought each of my dogs home. They all enjoy it.
4) My Vet says they are doing great on this food.

My Pomimo is exceptionally picky. We've tried mixing Natural Balance 1:1 with other dry food in the past, such as Science Diet (healthy puppy), Eukanuba (adult maintenance small bites), Blue Buffalo (longevity whitefish), and Pulsar (grain free chicken), but she will pick around and only eat the Natural Balance, who knows why.

That said, my other two dogs are also a fan of Wellness Core (we used the reduced fat formula as dog treats), California Natural (grain free venison), and Purina Pro-Plan (Lamb). However, that brings me to my next reason for choosing Natural Balance as their main diet: PRICE.

In comparing various corn-free foods which match my ingredient expectations, the general price range is upwards of $50 a bag. Fortunately, Petflow offers Natural Balance Original Ultra at a discount (Prior to finding Petflow I would still stock up when I saw it on sale in pet stores.)

Additionally I should mention that my dogs only eat about 80% of the amount recommended on the bags feeding chart (per recommendation from their vet for weight management).

Just wasn't the same

It is the same brand that we bought locally, but it appears lighter in color and definitely worse in smell. That's all I know - the convenience was great, having it delivered,...Read complete review

        Comments about Natural Balance Original Ultra Whole Body Health Chicken, Chicken Meal, Duck Meal Dry Dog Food:

        My dog was on Natural Balance when I got her. I switched her to Nutro trying to save a few pennies. What a mistake! Her fur turned dull and her skin became dry and flaky. I then switched back and noticed a marked difference right away.

            I have 6 dogs with allergies and this is the only food I have found that they all like, can eat without problems, and is affordable.

            I love these products and usually purchase four different types and then mix them all together. My dogs have enjoyed this brand since they were born!
