Feed Your Pet a Natural Balance Pet Food - #NaturalBalance

This post is sponsored by Natural Balance and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer NetworkTM. I am being compensated to help spread the word about Natural Balance available at PetSmart, but Growing Up Madison only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Natural Balance and PetSmart are not responsible for the content of this article.

I've said it over and over again that my pets are more than just pets, they are my family, and I want nothing but the best for my family and that includes my pets. I feed my pets the best there is and there is a simple reason for that. I may have mentioned it before that my mom always said "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure". That simply means that if I feed them the best there is now, it'll save me a ton of money in vets visits later. Just because a food a pricey doesn't always means that it's good for your pets. When I feed my pets any food, I always look at the quality of the ingredients and Natural Balance® Pet Foods just happens to have exactly what I'm looking for. You may have met our Bently and our Ella. They are both cocker spaniels and both are puppies. Ella is 3 months old while Bentley is 5 months old and Natural Balance® caters to both of them. It's the one food that I know I would feel comfortable giving them both as puppies right up to adulthood.

The best thing about Natural Balance® Pet Foods is that is available at my local PetSmart®, and to be honest I don't shop anywhere else for my pets food. I was in PetSmart® just recently buying food for my dogs since I was running low and happened to find come upon Natural Balance's L.I.D Limited Ingredients Diets® line. I was particularly intrigued because as you know I prefer foods that are wholesome and the less that is in there, the better it is for your pets. They are particularly great for pets with allergies. As of this time I don't think Ella or Bentley has allergies but I would rather be safe than sorry. The Natural Balance's L.I.D Limited Ingredients Diets® also features a balanced Omega-3 & Omega-6 Fatty Acids along with high quality protein to help support healthy skin & shiny coat.

I was pleasantly surprised by the choices that were available including but not limited to the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Sweet Potato & Fish Formula Dry Dog Formula and the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Potato & Duck Dry Dog Formula. My dogs however are HUGE fans of Lamb and right there was a Lamb L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® just waiting for them. The Limited Ingredients Diets are exactly what it says. Limited in its ingredients and they also have grain free formula. Now here are just a few reasons that makes me feel comfortable buying Natural Balance® Pet Foods for my own pets.

I have noticed that since Bentley and Ella have started eating the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® formula that they seem to have a lot more energy. While they were always playful, it seems to be kicked into high gear. While that isn't a bad thing, I now have to do a little bit more extra walks which is fine for me since I also need the exercise. My pre-schooler loves to run around outdoors and it's a great way for them to burn off some of their energy. Their coats seem to be a lot thicker and shinier as well and I'm loving it. We don't plan on giving them haircuts since it's winter so I'm really excited to see how they fare when spring shows up but I know they'll be ok. If you're worried about transitioning your pets, here's something you should note. The higher quality the food is, the less time you will have to transition. Bentley and Ella was already on another high quality food so we didn't even need to transition. They switched over really quickly and they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!

So if you're still looking for that pet food for your furry family, may I suggest Natural Balance  L.I.D Limited Ingredients Diets® Pet Food available at your local PetSmart®.
