Limited Ingredient Diets for Pets

Just like people, pets can have allergies, food sensitivities and tummy troubles. Once you’ve seen your veterinarian to rule out other medical conditions or health problems, he or she may suggest you try a special diet. For Daisy, this took some trial and error but we eventually figured out that a grain-free pet food was best for her and saw a huge improvement in her skin rashes and digestion.

Every dog and cat is different, and if going grain-free isn’t enough to see results, you might consider one of single source protein, single source carbohydrate formulas, L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets available from our blog sponsor and Daisy’s food provider, Natural Balance Pet Foods.

Limited ingredient diets minimize the number of ingredients that pets are exposed to, which can be helpful for pet parents looking for simple formulas with simple ingredients.

Natural Balance LID Limited Ingredient Diets foods provide unique alternatives for pets, including:

  • True limited ingredient formulas, with single-sources of animal protein and limited carbohydrate sources
  • The most extensive selection of unique proteins including venison, bison, and wagyu beef
  • Puppy and Large Breed Bites formulas are also available just for our tiniest and biggest best friends too!
  • Complete lines of limited ingredient offerings for both cats and dogs, including dry and canned formulas and treats

How should you go about trying a limited ingredient diet for you pet?

Do a food trial on a limited ingredient diet for at least 10-12 weeks, using a novel protein and carbohydrate source that your dog or cat has not had before. No other treats or food items should be fed during this time period. [Learn more about Limited Ingredient Diets for Pets]

Pet Food Safety Program

In addition to paving the way for limited ingredient diets, Natural Balance has also been a long-time leader in pet food safety. Every production run of Natural Balance pet food is tested before distribution so that you can “Buy With Confidence”.

Not only do they test all products in their state-of-the art in-house laboratory for nine known contaminants before they reach store, but pet parents can also find the Best By Date on your Natural Balance product and read your product’s actual test results on their website.
