COMPLETE AND BALANCED FOR ALL ADULT DOGS.

Natural Balance® Vegetarian Formula was designed for dogs with sensitivities caused by an intolerance to common food ingredients such as meat or dairy products. Our Vegetarian Formula provides adult dogs with the same essential nutrients found in diets with meat as the protein source. Natural Balance® Vegetarian Formula is for all breeds of adult dogs.
Some dogs may be highly sensitive to commonly used animal proteins, carbohydrates and food additives in their diet. Sensitivity reactions can lead to irritable bowel, upset stomach, and a number of skin problems. Natural Balance® has created Vegetarian Formula for dogs with these food sensitivities. Our Vegetarian Formula combines special non-meat proteins along with effective natural ingredients to help rebuild the dog’s immune system.

The Adult Adult dogs should be fed either once or twice per day. When you first start feeding Natural Balance® Vegetarian Formula, we suggest to start with the amounts recommended in the Table. Energy requirements vary with environmental conditions, temperature and activity of your dog. The amount of food should always be adjusted to suit your dog’s needs.
Working Dogs Based on the work your dog will be asked to perform, the nutritional requirements will vary accordingly. As the work load increases, the demand for protein and fat increases proportionally. Dogs in hard training will generally require twice the maintenance levels.
The Older Dog As your dog begins to age, his energy expenditure will decrease. Decreasing the amount of food accordingly will allow for the maintenance of proper body weight for less active dog.
