Recent Reviews for Balanced Diet Pork & Sweet Potato Dog Food
“I have 2 Bichons. 1 weighs 9 lbs and the other 12lbs. The both had skin problems. Vet suggested I stop feeding grain. Tried 2 other expensive products which worked ok but the dogs didn’t like the food. I tried By Nature and have fed no other dog food since then. I feel I hav found the right food for life for Bobby and GiGi.”


“I have used this product, and the canned foods for my dogs, and the worlds best cat litter for about 4 years now. With the exception of trouble that the company has had with changing formulas and finding a canning company that will do what you want them too, I will continue using these products for my four legged fur babies.
My cat has to be on a special diet, so I cannot use your product for him. But, I do giving him 3 pieces of the Sweet Potato Pork dry food every morning and evening when I feed the dogs, he loves it… (“

“This food is great! My picky dog Mochi likes the flavor of it. Great stool quality and also nice soft coat.”


“All of my animals love By Nature. Even Neo, my cat, begs for a couple of kibbles. We feed them wet and dry food. When the company reformulated everything, I was afraid Myya and Jack wouldn’t like it, on the contrary they love it even more. I have never seen their teeth whiter, nor their coats shinier. Thank you for such an excellent product.”

“I care about what I feed my family, and that includes our dog Rita of course! I love how Active Defense+ foods have SuperFusion® because I feel like it gives her the right nutrition (and maybe some super powers too!)”
