I am being compensated for helping to share our thoughts about why we believe in Natural Balance as a quality food for our (dog(s) or cat(s), 4dogsandalittlelady.com only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Natural Balance Pet Foods is not responsible for the content of this article.
In our first installment, we talked about how Natural Balance® provided their customers with the Buy with Confidence Promise™ and focused on our interactions with a licensed vet tech, which led to our choice to switch Sully boy to the Wild Pursuit Trout Formula.
But, the Buy with Confidence promise is multi-faceted. The other, perhaps more important, component is the transparency with which the company conducts their safety testing. In order to provide their customers with the piece of mind that the food we have chosen is, first and foremost, safe for our dogs, the company allows the consumer to access the exact results of any given bag of food and provides those results right on the website!
When I sat down to check out the bag that we purchased from Petsmart, I was ready to go exploring for UPC codes or whatever other small, crazy numbers I was going to need. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the only information needed was the formula name, the size of the bag, and the best buy date(which was super easy to find). The results for Sully’s bag are below.
It’s such an awesome feeling to know that the food I am feeding my dog has undergone rigorous testing AND I have the specific proof that it is safe for him to eat. It was something that I was forced to take for granted with previous food choices, but now that we have officially made our switch, I’ll never have to settle again!
After testing Sully’s food, I remembered that we had some Natural Balance food donated to our rescue, so like any kid who just found a super sweet new toy, I went and tested them too!
With the frequency and random nature of pet food recalls, it is such an empowering feeling to know that Natural Balance has such an intense focus on safety testing and they are willing to share that information with me simply so that I can sleep a tiny bit better at night!
If you are thinking about making a switch, I highly recommend visiting the Buy with Confidence Promise webpage and speaking with one of the licensed vet techs they have available in the live chat feature. Ask lots of questions about quality of ingredients, pros and cons of different formulas, your dog’s specific needs, etc. That way, if you do decide to make the switch, you will know that you have the nutrition and health angles covered and when you get home, you can hop on that same site to get the safety testing results for that bag!
