Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® + Giveaway! (CLOSED)

NB_STACKEDlong_301

Kiko has been suffering for some time with allergies.  Problem is, we didn’t know the source.  There was a spot on her chest that she would scratch and scratch and scratch; it got really red and irritated (see photos below).  I tried Benedryl and then Zyrtec.  I also tried putting lavender oil on it and even holistic anti-itch sprays but no luck.  Around the time it started to get really bad, I received an opportunity to join the Natural Balance Insiders.  This is a small group of bloggers that work closely with Natural Balance because we embody their mission to encourage pets and their owners to live a life filled with good health, exercise, training, and of course, fun!  It was at that time that I was able to speak to a nutritionist there and we talked about Kiko’s skin issues.  She encouraged me to start Kiko out on Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Sweet Potato & Venison Dry Formula.

Figuring out what protein allergy your dog has can take time.  I knew that once I started Kiko on the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets, it would be a couple of months before we saw any results, if food was the culprit.  Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® comes in multiple varieties: Lamb Meal & Brown Rice (Available in Large and Small Breed), Legume & Duck Meal, Potato & Duck (available in small breed), Potato & Rabbit, Sweet Potato & Bison, Sweet Potato & Chicken (available in small breed), Sweet Potato & Fish (available in small breed) and Sweet Potato & Venison.  The L.I.D. formulas are also available in canned food.  These grain-free formulas contain limited ingredients that are great alternatives for allergy-prone pets!

Not all dogs have food allergies.  In fact, food allergies only account for 10% of all canine allergies.  Your vet can help you determine if your dog has a food allergy or if it has a food intolerance as these are two different things.  The most common ingredients for allergies are chicken and beef, milk, eggs, fish, potatoes, soy, corn wheat gluten and additives.  The most common symptom is itching, scratching and chewing, which is why I thought Kiko had a food allergy.  Her itching and scratching was severe.  If you know for sure that your dog has a food allergy, start with a Limited Ingredient Dog Food like Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets®.

We have finally started seeing her get better and I just added the L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Dry Formula.  You have no idea how happy I am that Kiko now has two flavors of food.  I have always tried to give the girls a variety of flavors to eat.  I do that because I would hate to eat it the same thing three times a day for the rest of my life, so why would I give my dogs the same thing twice a day?

Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets® is exactly that, a limited ingredient pet food with a limited number of protein and carbohydrate sources.  By limiting the ingredients, you can help identify the source of the problem and help your pet become healthier and happy.  You have to be patient, however.  When switching kibble, it can take a couple of months to notice any difference.

    I have 8 doggies, including 3 rescues. One of my dogs has sensitivities to certain grains so I have been feeding her grain free kibble for several months now since determining what bothers her. Another of mine has allergies so I try to stick to limited ingredient food, especially for him. I’ve tried the duck/potato LI treats and all my dogs absolutely loved them so I’m sure they all would love the yummy stuff here. The best part is that there is lots of stuff so there would be plenty to share with all eight of my doggies. Thanks for the chance to win,
