Natural Balance Wild Pursuit

Okay, I’m sure those of you who live in mountainous areas would probably laugh at my mention of “mountain”, but hey, it’s the only mountain within a couple of hundred of miles of us.


This is Mt. Trashmore, in Virginia Beach Virginia and, you guessed it, it’s made from trash. Now it’s a park.

Some of you may know that Kilo and I have been on a quest to get fit this year. I have been doing really well and have learned to love exercise, eating right and being out in nature. Kilo…well, not so much.

All Kilo wants to do it sit in my lap, in the house, and not move for hours. I know being sedentary isn’t good for either of us so besides the nightly walks we have been doing, we have also been on the hunt for interesting places in my area to explore.

Today it was the mountain. Kilo, my granddaughter May and I decided to climb to the top. There are stairs but we didn’t use them. Kilo kept trying to get me to carry her up but nope, sorry, I was the mean mommy and I wouldn’t pick her up. She needs the exercise.

All 3 of us made it with no problem. A year ago, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been able to climb it, nor would Kilo.

Here Kilo and I are sitting at the top of the mountain and watching May dance around. We did need a little rest after all that climbing.

Here’s Kilo and May rolling down the mountain (well May is rolling; Kilo is trying to get out of her way).

Along with exercise, I have been feeding my dogs premium food too to help them get and stay healthy. The requirements I want in a high quality pet food are:

  • high protein dog food
  • a natural pet food
  • limited ingredients
  • grain free
  • easy to digest
  • complete and balanced
  • promotes healthy skin and coat

One brand of food we plan to try is the Wild Pursuit line from Natural Balance® Pet Foods. It meets all those requirements and more.


Natural Balance’s Wild Pursuit line of  dog food (they also have a high protein cat food for those who have kitties) provides an ancestral diet that celebrates a dog’s wild side. It’s a food that is very similar to the diet dogs would have had in the wild. Hey maybe it will help Kilo enjoy our outdoor adventures more.

We have started the dogs on Natural Balance and so far they love it. No digestive problems with switching foods. They haven’t been on it long enough to notice any health benefits yet but will update in a month and let you know!

I have heard of Natural Balance but haven't tried it yet. My dog tends to have tummy issues. Do you think it would be okay for him?

Well I'm not a vet Debbie but this food is supposed to be easy to digest so you can always buy a small bag and give it a try. If you do, let me know how your dog does on it.

Yeah I have heard that their foods are top notch. Looking forward to having the pups try it out.
