Natural Balance Ultra: Whole Body Health, Great Taste

We have a new dog in the house this week, and in a case of impeccable timing, our food sponsor, Natural Balance, surprised us with a shipment of something new to try: Original Ultra chicken, chicken meal, & duck meal formula kibble. Our pack has thrived on Natural Balance food and treats for years now: their variety allows us to work around food allergies in our Labs, and their higher fat/protein formulas are terrific for our Greyhound athletes.


Our challenge is that we have finicky eaters – specifically our Lab ladies. They are our pack elders, and have sampled more than 30 food varieties over the years. They bore easily and only tend to stay with flavorful foods – a number of brands have been summarily dismissed by them, spit our and rejected.

Not so in this case. We’re watching this bag deplete at a rate much faster than normal. The cold weather has moved in and in their typical fashion, the Labs are packing on a couple of pounds of insulation for the winter (we feed freely in Sola’s case) and loving Original Ultra with every crunch. If these picky pooches give it their stamp of approval, chances are that your dog will love it as well. And you’ll love knowing that your dog is eating a balanced, complete, healthy diet.
