Flavor Name: Beef|Size: 4-Pound|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I called the company and while none of the meat comes from China - the Beef and Chicken come from North America, and the Lamb from New Zealand - some of the ingredients are sourced in China for their pet foods. The company rep couldn't tell me which ingredients.

As China has a high rate of pollution and soil contamination, that is something for pet owners to consider. The company rep, who was very nice, said they do test for nine contaminants. She said the company encourages consumers to call to discuss this more in depth. She also said they are trying to find sources outside of China for some of their ingredients. I prefer to buy dog food in which none of the ingredients come from China. So, we won't be buying this dog food for our dog as much as we like the company's approach to not use filler etc. and offer a quality high protein product. And our dog liked the dog food.

They also test every batch, which the company rep said she didn't think any other pet food companies do that. So, they do prize quality control. If you have any questions, go to company web site and they will chat with you there and offer to call you or provide a phone number for you to call them. They are quite nice. I told them I thought it would help sales if they would quit sourcing any ingredients from China. They appreciated my input, and suggested consumers call them directly about any concerns.

Here's the complete list of ingredients from the company web site: Beef, Pea Protein, Beef Meal, Chickpeas, Peas, Canola Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Pea Starch, Natural Flavor, Pea Fiber, Flaxseed, Salt, Potassium Chloride, DL-Methionine, Menhaden Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Choline Chloride, Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Ferrous Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Sulfate, Manganese Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite), Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement), Green Tea Extract, Spearmint Extract.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon April 12, 2018
My Beagle/Doxie mix, Bender, loves NB LID dog food, particularly the Venison. He has allergic reactions to other brands of food, especially any chicken dry food (but for some reason, he is fine with actual chicken). We have gone through testing lots of different kinds of food, as well as home cooked dog food, but always rely on NB for safe kibble. Bender usually eats the Venison or Lamb LID, and when I saw this food, I had high hopes. However, he started having itchy spots all over when eating this food. Maybe it's one of the peas ingredients or flaxseed, I'm not sure. I'm just going to stick with the regular LID Venison and Lamb.

My 70 lb Labradoodle had constant ear infections requiring daily treatment and vet supervision. I tried a holistic vet who suggested a limited ingredient dog food without chicken. After about a month, he had no more ear infections, no special maintenance ear washes. No ear issues! Have used venison and fish varieties of Natural Balance and now trying beef. Venison was our fav or 5 years but cost has gone up beyond our budget. He only gets 2 cups per day and minimal treats (Natural Balance Limited ingredient of course) and he has maintained a health weight for his size. Even his poop is prize worthy. Per past experience. I think Natural Balance Limited Ingredient dog food is a winner.

It gets great reviews on Dog Food Advisor but out dogs aren't fond of the taste. We went back to their old food once they ate this. We rotate our dog food so we might come back to this in our future rotation. Perhaps it is too healthy for them.

My pets don't looove this product but they do eat it. I bought it because my Shih Tzu is allergic to a lot of thing and this food has limited ingredients. It is very good because he doesn't cause any reaction on him.

Been feeding this food to my dog for a few months. He's a good weight, has lots of energy, and a good healthy coat. No puking. Lab/terrier mix. We occasionally mix with the lamb meal and rice formula. Very similar looking bag.

My dog wouldn’t eat anything but human food (we spoiled him) until this dog food. Love that it is high in protein because he is very active, and apparently it tastes great!
