Get Fit! Natural Balance Photo Contest

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

With such soaring numbers of pets growing overweight, Natural Balance has taken action to help promote a solution. As an NB Insider, I'm proud to say they're not just throwing a product at the problem and stopping there. They've taken a thorough approach to offering resources, tips, ideas, and you'll even be hearing from me on this topic.

Knowing that extra pounds often lead to heart disease, diabetes and other health problems, your pet needs your help to get him fit and healthy. Unlike humans who make their own food choices, our pets depend on us to provide a balanced diet and adequate exercise, while still allowing a few extra calories to reward them for good behavior and training work that are important to our bonding. We believe bonding is important too!

To help you get started on the road to your pet's perfect weight, Natural Balance is sponsoring a photo contest that you'll hardly be able to take a pass on. The payoff for both you and your pet's health, could be enormous:

Who:      Overweight Dogs and Cats

Where:   The Natural Balance Facebook Page:

Selection of finalists and winners:

I guess there is one negative side to Maya & Pierson being so fit... they can't enter this contest! :)

When we got our 3rd Lab, Hoppy, he was overweight and a real couch potato. We put him on the same NB formula our other two were on (LID Sweet Potato/Fish), but cut down on his serving size. We also added a few green beans for filler and bulk. We put him on an exercise regiment...walks with a weighted backpack, rollerblading hikes, and running and playing with our other two Labs.

The weight dropped off of him! I've got before and after pics that I could post if I could figure out how!
