What are L.I.D. Limited Ingredients Diets?
Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredients Diets are designed with a limited number of protein and carbohydrate sources. Scientifically formulated to provide high quality nutrition and optimize your dog’s skin and coat, L.I.D. Limited Ingredients Diets are complete and balanced options for all breeds and life stages.
Digestion Starts in the Mouth for Your Large Breed
Because digestion begins in the mouth, larger kibble encourages dogs to eat slower and promote proper chewing. Plus, slowing down will allow your dog to enjoy, appreciate and savor the taste of every bite.
Dental Health for Your Large Breed
The size, shape and texture of our kibble is specially designed to help promote clean teeth and healthy gums for large breed dogs with bigger teeth.
The Food For A Lifetime™
Natural Balance has taken the same great formula that has proven successful for puppies through adults, and tailored it to the needs of your large breed dog. Your dog will benefit from eating the same food during all stages of life, and you'll enjoy the convenience of feeding Natural Balance according to your dog's life stage - puppy, adult or senior.
We carefully select ingredients of the highest quality. Wholesome formulas, including lamb, provide the nutrition your large breed dog needs to lead a healthy, naturally balanced lifestyle. No Artificial Flavors or Colors.
Formulated to complement our Lamb & Brown Rice Canned Formula, it’s also a perfect match for our Brown Rice & Lamb Meal Treats for a complete Limited Ingredients diet!
