Natural Balance LID

Taylor:  Hey, Rusty,  Jan just pushed this box in the spot where I was sleeping.  Help me shove it to the floor so I can finish my nap.

Rusty:  I don't think you want to shove those cans to the floor.  We're supposed to taste test the contents.

Taylor:  Oh, good.  What is it?

Rusty:  Let's see.  It's Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance LID, or Limited Ingredient Diets, canned cat food..  There are six formulas.  We received the chicken & green pea formula in 3 ounce cans.

Taylor:  You mean there are only two ingredients?

Rusty:  No.  It has chicken, chicken broth, chicken liver, ground peas, pea protein, chicken meal, natural flavor and numerous vitamins and minerals.  Click on the above Natural Balance link for a complete list of ingredients.  I guess it does have only two main ingredients.

Taylor:  I see Chewy lists the key benefits as:

    Grain-free recipe.
    Single source animal protein & limited carbohydrate sources.
    High-quality nutrition for skin & coat health.
    Contains nutrients, vitamins & minerals.
    No artificial flavors or colors.
    Complete & balanced for all life stages.

Rusty:  Let's try some.

Micah:  Tastes good to me.

Cyndi:  Jan always adds water to canned food to help us drink more.  She added just the right amount  today. 

Taylor:  What's the problem, Rusty?  You're not eating.

Rusty:  Jan knows I like my wet food served with a sprinkle of crunchies on top.  Hey, Jan, where are my crunchies!

Percy:  It's about time I get my share. I'm always served last any more.  Just because I want to dine on the desk doesn't mean my breakfast should be served late!

Taylor:  We are all enjoying the Natural Balance LID cat food.  Rusty and Percy prefer theirs served with a sprinkle of crunchies on top, but the rest of us eat it naked.

Micah:  Are you referring to us or to the food when you use the word "naked"?

Cyndi:  I think Taylor is referring to the food.  Are we supposed to say "naked" in a food review?

Percy:  Probably not, but I doubt Jan would put a hat on it before serving.

We were provided the cat food for review by Chewy.com.  We received no other compensation and any opinions expressed are entirely our own.

  4. You guys did a great review! Unfortunately, , for some reason, Dragonheart doesn’t tolerate that Natural Balance LID foods at all. There must be something in it that upsets his stomach, because every time our mom has tried to feed it to us, he immediately throws it back up. Fortunately there are other LID foods from other companies that stay down!

  5. Wow bet that tastes and smells terrific
