    I have an Australian Shepherd who had a bit of a rough start to life. She was raised with a family who didn’t seem to understand the basics of raising a email dog, let alone an Aussie. They raised her on raw chicken breast (full bone in),no other nutrients, no physical activities other than the occasional walk/hike, no training aside from house breaking, lots of kennel time, and the bread her on her first heat. It came as no surprise to me (or her new vet) when I discovered that she suffered from food allergies. She would constantly chew her feet and rub her nose on anything she could find while she whined. I tried Nutro, but she still seemed to be itchy. I did a little more homework and tried Natural Balance Lamb and Brown Rice. Not even a week later all her itchyness was gone. She was her normal hyper self. I’ve had her on this food for only 3 months and she already has considerable more fur than she did when I brought her home 4 months ago. Her strength and stamina have also skyrocketed!! It’s amazing what a healthy diet and regular excersize can do. Thank you Natural Balance!!!
