I am being compensated for helping to share our thoughts about why we believe in Natural Balance as a quality food for our dogs. Bichonpawz only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Natural Balance Pet Foods is not responsible for the content of this article.**
One of the reasons we chose to begin the journey with Natural Balance® back in November 2016 was because we discovered after researching all the different brands that Natural Balance shared many of our own values! Their "Buy With Confidence"® promise comes from many years of experience creating premium pet food. It means a lot to us that they believe every bowl should be nutritious and safe...yet taste great too!!
Natural Balance crafts their premium foods out of quality ingredients. Chloe and LadyBug just love the taste of the Wild Pursuit™ Trout, Salmon Meal, and Tuna Dry Dog Formula. Natural Balance Wild Pursuit is a grain free diet with elevated levels of protein. It resembles what our dogs would eat if they were out in the wild. We absolutely will continue to feed Natural Balance for several reasons! The flavors are derived from nature...NO artificial flavors. Natural preservatives such as fish products and oils are included in the food...NO chemical preservatives. Many food sensitivities are caused by corn, wheat, and soy. Natural Balance guarantees they never use these items in their food. They also guarantee that they don't use chicken or poultry by-products. Some pets can be extra sensitive to grains and Natural Balance has taken that into consideration also by offering lots of grain-free choices in their food product line, as well as their treat product line.
Strict safety testing in accredited laboratories is performed on each and every single batch of food and treats that carry the Natural Balance name. They actually perform NINE safety tests on each batch of food and treats. I guess if we really think about it, how else could they guarantee that these premium quality ingredients would stay that way from the factory to our kitchens?? Every single test is conducted by chemists and microbiologists. I won't go into all of the details of what each of the tests entails. Suffice it to say that in-depth testing is performed for Aflatoxin, Cyanuric Acid, Vomitoxin, Shiga Toxin Producing Escherichia Coli, Fumonisin, Melamine, Ochratoxin, Salmonella, and Zearalenone. Now, if all that doesn't make you feel as good about purchasing Natural Balance as we do, we're not sure what will!!
The results of all of these tests are available publicly...just go to their website and enter the product date code and info and you'll get the results right away!
The Natural Balance Buy With Confidence guarantee is based upon four core beliefs:
2) Nutrition Experts
There are several different varieties of Natural Balance that Chloe and LadyBug consume on a daily basis. Among their favorites (besides the food) are Belly Bites, Delectable Delights, Dental Chews, and Mini Rewards. The Mini Rewards work great for inserting in their indoor puzzle games...the pieces are very small, chewy, and fit nicely in each of their games!
It is very difficult, if not impossible, for us to pick the most important core belief we share with Natural Balance because it is not just one thing. It is a combination of all of the core beliefs that Natural Balance has. It is SO important, especially in today's world, to KNOW for sure that the food we are feeding our furry family members is the exact food that is guaranteed to be safe and nutritious and is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Thank you, Natural Balance!! We wish more companies felt the same level of commitment to their customers as you do!
We are currently rotating between Wild Pursuit, Delectable Delights, and the Dog Food Rolls. Chloe and LadyBug are fans of all three...and they do prefer variety in their diet!!
Head on over and show our sponsor some love...
