    DefaultNatural Balance Duck and Potato

    Kind of a crazy question I know. But, does anybody know if Natural Balance has changed the ingredients in Duck and Potato? Sadie eats this and has never had any problems, but I just started a new bag about two weeks ago and since then she has had horrible horrible gas that will run you out of the room. I know they can have gas, but she has never had it before. Nothing else has changed and she doesn"t get any rawhides or anything like that. Possible I got a bad bag??

    I am so glad you posted...this is the ONLY thing my guys eat b/c of severe allergies, no people food, only the D&P treats too. For the last month they have been incredibly flared up...I have been driving my self crazy trying to figure out what I coudl have changed that may have affected their allergies. JUST this morning I asked DH if he thought it might be a change in the food...they have been on it for at least 5-6 yrs now. I often get bags from them with inconsistent kibble sizes and colors...as if one bag is cooked otu longer and "crispier" than others, but it never bothered them until this past month.

    I think I am going to call today and ask...don't knwo that they would tell me the truth but I am going to ask anyway. I have one dog who is riddled with allergies, but the other has very minimal allergies, but he is almost as flared up as the other one now...has no hair left on his belly, or his legs from chewing and scratching It is bothering me so much that last night I had a dream that Digger pulled Kodi's tail right off b/c that's how flared up they are...that they are falling apart, and was running aroudn the house with his tail in his mouth. Kodi didn't seem to notice in the dream, but when I looked at his butt he has just a skin colored disk there where his tail used to be

    Yes, they changed it a few months ago. Luckily, the changes haven't bothered Caleb.

    What exactly did they change? I have no idea what I am going to use now...it took me 4 years to find that, and it was hell trying to find the right thing. Sigh....
