How would you rate Natural Balance LID Sweet Potato and Venison dog food?
I have a 12 year old German Shepard/Huskey mix with dry/allergic skin issues and a 5 year old German Shepard who is over weight. I have just taken them off of Iams ( senior and Healthy Weight). The salesperson at Petco recommended Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Venison for my older dog with skin issues. She also recommended Nature's Recipe Lamb and Rice for my overweight dog. The reviews do not look good for Nature's Recipe.
I have always used lamb and rice for dogs with skin allergies with good success. The key, I've been told, is to stay away from anything with chicken in it. I believe that LID also has that formula available. We use the LID Venison/Sweet Potato and Lamb/Rice for our dog, and she does well - but she's active and weight isn't a problem. I don't know if venison vs. lamb would really make a difference weight-wise, so I would try lamb first, or switch between the two. They say that's not good for the digestion, but we do it all the time and our dog doesn't suffer. Maybe because we stay in the same brand or because it is Limited Ingredient.
I was asking more about these specific brands. I've heard both bad and good things about Nature's Recipe and did not see much about Natural Balance.

Is this the biggest sweet potato that you have ever seen?That is a normal sized apple sitting next to it in the photograph which I took. The sweet potato tipped the scales right at 2 pounds and 7 ounces when it was officially weighed.

This has become one of our most favorite meals.Asparagus goes well with many foods - we like it with eggs, for example, but with well prepared (not drowning in butter) sweet potato, it almost seems like desert to me.My wife adds a light sprinkling of Parmesan to the asparagus - just one of the many...
