Shout out for Natural Balance dog food

As you know, Finn has a sensitive stomach. We have tried many brands of dog food, but continued to have the delightfully descriptive 'pudding poo', evil gas incidents, and less than enthusiastic eating. Sometimes one thing would improve, but another would get worse. I started with higher end regular dog food, tried large breed, limited and no grain formulas, but finally hit gold with Natural Balance grain free limited ingredient formulas.

We are now on our second month of solid normal poo (yay!!), no gas (yes, NONE!!!), and enthusiastic eating. I've actually had to cut back on treats because Finn has gained enough weight to have a little fat layer (and we don't want to lose our girlish figure). His energy level is up (well, up for him) and he is a happy dog now his tummy doesn't hurt.

We started with the duck and sweet potato formula, and now have the bison and sweet potato. He likes both, but I think the duck so far is his favorite. They also have sweet potato and chicken, venison, and fish, so easy to mix it up so he doesn't get bored. They also have a lamb and rice formula, and a completely vegan mix for dogs prone to meat protein allergies.

I would like to give a huge thanks to Natural Balance for developing these formulas for those of us with sensitive dogs! Cost-wise this isn't your grocery store dog food, but the prices are in line with other high quality foods, and Petco has a coupon!
