ESSENTIAL BALANCE is a single source protein food in which turkey, rice and oats are the main ingredients. BALANCE is significantly different from our other meals, so please read the following carefully before choosing BALANCE. BALANCE is presented as a solution in four different situations:
Looking for a low protein food?
BALANCE is only 20 percent protein. You can further increase the level of protein in the servings by mixing BALANCE together with any of our LIVING foods. If you serve a mixture of 75% BALANCE together with 25% of a ESSENTIAL LIVING meal the protein level is boosted to 22.5 %.
Is your dog suffering from loose stools?
The combination of turkey meat, rice and oats is carefully composed to balance the digestive system. ESSENTIAL BALANCE can be served on its own or mixed with our other meals. The latter option is the obvious choice in the case of recurrent problems.
Would you like to serve a more economically attractive ESSENTIALS meal?
This option is for those who need to find a food solution at a lower price, but who are attracted by our values and the results we deliver to our customers. Fortunately, there is now an economic solution for heavy volume users who cannot go the full ESSENTIALS way. In this case it makes particular sense to use our other meals for specific lifestyle situations. These could, for example, be CONTOUR for sterilised or neutered dogs and LARGE BREED for large puppies etc.
Does your dog suffer from an allergy problem caused by certain ingredients?
BALANCE is a single source protein meal. This makes BALANCE the obvious choice for those who wish to serve ESSENTIALS to avoid allergies caused by eggs, chicken, lam, beef or fish proteins. Check out the ingredients yourself or contact us for advice. You can also increase protein intake by supplementing your dog’s diet with fresh, non-allergic protein sources.
The food should be stored in a cool dry place (5-18?), away from direct sunlight and in an airtight container.
If you are just starting your journey with Essentials, we suggest that you gradually phase in this tasty new food over the course of 4-7 days, or make the change from one day to the next which works equally well. We advise that you spend the first 2-3 weeks identifying the correct portion size, overfeeding will result in softer stools. When your dog’s stools are solid and they feel satisfied, you have found the correct portion size.
Always ensure fresh drinking water is available.
If your pet gains or loses weight adjust amount accordingly.
