    Default changes to Natural Balance ?

    Hello everyone it has been a very long time since we have posted - hope everyone and there babies are doing wonderful..
    We have a question.. Our Diesel has been on natural Balance Fish and Sweet potato for a very long time, and done WONDERFUL with it !... however the last 2 weeks, he has had horrid tear stains, runny eyes, and just been not his usual shiny clean self. Does anyone know if Natural Balance has changed anything in there recipe's ? we also wondered if our light Ohio weather has maybe had something to do with it, some of our trees and so forth are starting to bud also, and he does love his play time around them ? any suggestions or comments ?

    There are alot of customer complaints about changes in the formula. Does the food seem greasier and smell different?

    Thank you very much for your quick replies , and yes actually it DOES seem to smell different and be a different texture !... This is so not cool.. i hate to mess with switching his food, when he has done SO well with it, he is smothered in wrinkles and they have always been such a pretty white , however i dont want to see this get any worse ? ! But what if it IS the back yard ? blugh ~ lol here we go .. lol

    we just got lola on NB alpha lamb and a couple other proteins are in there as well. she's still eating (our main issue was lack of interest). but does anyone know if the changes in the food made it worse/less healthy? i'm going to stick with what i've been using so far. lola has really minor tear stains, but no chewing of the toes or hives or anything.

    The only change I know of is the proportion of the proteins. Its now Sweet potato and Fish instead of the other way around. I know alot of dogs have not done well with the change. My bullies never did well on it but now even bullies who have eaten it for a long time are having issues. I wonder why they changed the formulas??

    oh my goodness sakes !!!! I am SO NOT HAPPY right now, I honestly dont know what we are going to do, i know several of you have had food issues but with Diesel we didnt and KNEW we were very fortunate, especially with his amount of wrinkles... i am not sure now what we will try .. i just know i will not continue to feed him this and am severely disspointed I know Earthborn has a white fish food maybe we can look into ?
