I am a cat owner and always on the lookout for quality products to improve my cats’ health and longevity. One of the best products I have found on the market today is Natural Balance Cat Food. My cats love the taste, and I love the ingredients and the company behind the product. Dick Van Patten, the actor, started this company in 1989, with the idea of creating the healthiest pet food around, not just for pets, but for zoo animals as well. He wanted it to be made from quality ingredients, and without using animal testing.
I found out about this cat food by way of a free sample at a pet supply store that I frequent. I brought the bag home, and gave the sample to my cats, who all went nuts over it. After seeing this, I kept the bag so that I could research the product, and I looked up more information at www.naturalbalanceinc.com. The thing I liked the most was the ingredient list. When you compare the ingredient list on a bag of Natural Balance, to the ingredient list on a bag of other leading store brand cat food, such as Friskies, you will see quite a difference. For example, the first five ingredients of the Natural Balance food are Chicken, Chicken Meal, Brown Rice, Duck and Lamb Meal. This sounds pretty good to me. This is the type of thing that I want to feed my cats. Natural Balance contains no preservatives or by-products, and is relatively high in protein.
To get further research besides reading the biased information on the Natural Balance web site, I also did a search for reviews on the food on the web. Everything I read about Natural Balance was positive. Consumers claimed that their cats had visible health improvement, such as a healthier looking coat, increased activity and other positive things. After I started feeding this food to my cats regularly, I noticed improvements as well, and I don’t think it was a coincidence. Basically, just like humans, when you eat healthy, quality food, your health and quality of life improves. I saw this happening with my cats. One particular thing I noticed was a lot less random vomiting, hairballs, etc. I am sure that being on a diet of Natural Balance was the reason for this positive change.
Natural Balance Dry Cat Food is available in three different formulas. The formulas are Ultra Premium, Venison & Green Pea, and Reduced Calorie. I have tried each of these formulas on my cats, and they have all been met with great enthusiasm, with the Reduced Calorie being the least favorite. However, I have noticed this is always the case with any reduced calorie cat food of any brand, so I don’t consider it a negative against the brand. I usually purchase the 6.6 pound bag of Natural Balance. This cat food can be a little pricey, but I feel that the improved health of my cats is worth it. I have now been using this food for around two years, and I will continue to use it as long as it is being made.
I would absolutely recommend Natural Balance Dry Cat Food to any cat owner. After feeding a cat this food for a few weeks, you will notice the health benefits and positive changes. This is good, quality cat food without chemicals or by-products, and the company does not support animal testing. Natural Balance also regularly contributes to animal charities to help abused and neglected animals. It makes me feel good to support a pet food company that involves themselves in these kind of activities. Therefore, I can justify the higher price because of all the good that goes into the product, and all the good that comes from using this product.
