They’ve officially arrived! Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® pet foods have become a part of the PetSmart® family. This expansion in PetSmart’s premium pet food selection is great for pet owners who like to feed their pets a grain free diet or whose pets may have special dietary needs. My cat, Manna, is a true kitty foodie, so she had to be one of the first to check it out!
The Natural Balance Product Line
Natural Balance has a line of premium cat and dog foods and treats. Their variety of different formulas can help meet the dietary needs of any cat:
- Limited Ingredient Diet
Limited Ingredient Diets™ (L.I.D.s) are great for cats with food allergies or sensitivities! They use only one source of animal protein and a limited number of carbohydrates. All L.I.D.s are grain free.
- Weight Management Diet
Obesity is on the rise among cats! The Fat Cats Formula is designed to help cats shed those extra pounds.
- Original Ultra Premium
The Original Ultra Premium formulas use only premium ingredients. Great for cats of all ages, these formulas will help your cat to have the healthiest skin and coat possible.
- Wild Pursuit
Natural Balance’s Wild Pursuit® formulas are made to mimic a cat’s ancestral diet. They are high in protein and use multiple high-quality sources of animal protein. These formulations are grain free as well.
With the exception of the Weight Management Diet, all of these formulations come in wet and dry options. The Weight Management Diet comes only as a dry cat food. Pouches, stews, and kitten diets are available too! The Platefulls® formulas are all pouch cat foods. The Perfect Bites treats are only 1 calorie per treat and contain no corn, wheat, soy, artificial colors or flavors.
Manna’s PetSmart Adventure
In celebration of the launch of Natural Balance’s line at PetSmart, Dave, Manna, and I went down to our local PetSmart! I didn’t bring Cinco because he is a very shy cat and it wouldn’t suit his personality to be out in public. Manna is a very outgoing kitty that loves people and attention. She has been working on leash training and this was one of her first fun adventures away from home. We can’t let dogs have all the fun! I can’t think of too many places that would be more fun for an outgoing kitty!
Manna wasn’t so happy about the car ride, but as soon as we got into PetSmart, her whole demeanor changed. She walked around the aisles and wanted everyone she saw to pet her. The staff and customers were really thrilled to see a cat on a leash! We made sure to check out everything: the food, the toys, hamsters, birds, adoptable cats, and especially the Natural Balance displays. After a little while, we put Manna in the top of the cart so she could observe everything from a more human angle. She really liked being pushed around in the cart!
We made sure to pick up some great Natural Balance goodies while we were there. Manna helped us choose, of course. Since our cats only eat wet foods, we went straight to the cans and pouches. We chose some of the Platefulls pouches, the Wild Pursuit wet cat food, and the yummy grain free treats (Manna wasn’t leaving without any treats). I was very pleased to see that the moisture in the Platefulls pouches is 82%! The cats both really enjoyed those. I shouldn’t forget to mention that Cinco loved the Natural Balance products that Manna chose on our trip to PetSmart!
How your cats can join the celebration!
Isn’t it pawsome that cats with food allergies or that are on grain free diets now have a very convenient option? Your cats can join Cinco and Manna in celebrating the launch of Natural Balance at PetSmart! There is a Natural Balance formula to fit the needs of any kitty. The whole line of Natural Balance foods is available at affordable prices both in-store and online at PetSmart.
