Gross. Especially in light of what just (finally) happened to Natura Pet post Proctor & Gamble.

Posted to my work peeps, Natural Balance is a huge seller in our stores.

I swear every time I switch to a food Cricket can actually eat something happens to that food brand. She is on the rabbit L.I.D formula.

Well that's disappointing. I don't feed it but always thought the LIDs were a nice option for people.

I have to figure out what I'm going to feed the dogs now. Bamm and Joey can eat anything for the most part, but Cricket has to be on a limited ingredient diet because of her allergies. I was doing a buy 10 get 1 free thing with natural balance and now I gotta figure something out. One of my friends has a GSD that has absolutely severe food allergies to just about everything and natural balance is what he has been on. Not sure what they are going to switch him to.

I really wish I had a full size freezer and could just do raw. I have a mini fridge and my mini freezer is packed with raw for the cat.

Buy as much NB as possible until you can find a food that works?
