Dogs thrive on a high-protein diet: it’s essential for making skin cells, building muscle, growing hair, creating important hormones and enzymes and should be their main source of energy. However, a large number of dog foods out there don’t actually have much meat in them. We’re proud that all our Balanced Life recipes are made from 80% meat, organs, oils and bone.
There’s lots of nutrients in meat beyond protein too – find out more about the our four meaty recipes – Kangaroo, Salmon, Chicken & Lamb, here.
Note for dalmatians, dogs with renal failure and other dogs requiring low protein diets consult your vet before feeding Balanced Life.
Balanced Life is boosted with four superfoods.
alfalfa – full of vitamin A and other antioxidants to fight cell-damaging free radicals
coconut – rich in powerful fatty acids and contains antibacterial and antifungal qualities
kelp – high in iron to support blood flow and iodine to support the thyroid
cranberry – rich in vitamin C and a great natural treatment for urinary stones and infections

single source proteins for healthy skin and stomachs
Many pets today suffer from irritated skin and stomachs, which are often caused by allergy issues arising from cooked low grade meat and fillers in traditional pet food. By continuing to feed pets these unnatural meals, owners risk causing increased discomfort to their pets, which can lead to serious issues and costly treatments.
Balanced Life is formulated with a single protein in each variety, ensuring your pet receives the best protein for their body. In particular, kangaroo meat is often regarded as a low allergenic protein source that can solve long-term allergy problems that many pets have.
omega 3 & 6 are critical for health
Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are essential for good health and the correct balance of both is critical to ensure the immune system can defend against basic allergens, particularly skin irritations. These essential fatty acids occur naturally in meat, fruit and vegetables; however they are easily destroyed by cooking, so feeding gently air dried Balanced Life ensures the correct level is maintained and cell function is optimised.
natural prebiotics for a healthy gut
Prebiotics help stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, which in turn helps improve digestion and immunity. Naturally occurring prebiotics are often damaged by processing in in normal pet foods. Gentle air drying on the other hand preserves the prebiotics in Balanced Life helping your four-legged friend have the best of health.
